Health, Safety and Hygiene
At High Country Lodge & Cabins, we take standards for hygiene and cleanliness very seriously and are taking steps to ensure the safety of our guests and colleagues. We have implemented guidelines and protocols to keep everyone safe, happy and comfortable at the High Country Lodge
Hand Hygiene: Proper and frequent hand washing is vital to help combat the spread of viruses. Our staff is reminded daily that cleanliness starts with this simple act and is very important for their heath and that of our guests.
Cleaning Products: High Country Lodge & Cabins only uses products that are Eco-Friendly and approved by the US EPA for cleaning and disinfecting all areas of the facility.
Guest Rooms: We use cleaning and disinfecting protocols to clean rooms after guests depart and before the next guest arrives, with particular attention paid to high-touch items, surfaces and flooring. In addition, after housekeeping is finished with the room, each room is Ultra Violet Light Sanitized utilizing the same disinfecting and sterilization lighting used by Medical Facilities.
- Ultraviolet light kills up to 99.9% of the pathogens in a space, depending on run time and distance to the UV light source, by destroying their ability to be viable or reproduce.
- UV lights have been proven to quickly destroy viruses, bacteria, and fungi.
- Hundreds of healthcare facilities use UV lights to disinfect their facilities as part of their comprehensive infection prevention program and several hospitals have published peer-reviewed studies showing 50%-100% reductions in their Clostridium difficile (C.diff), methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) and surgical site infection (SSI) rates after they used UV lights.
Public Spaces: We have increased the frequency of cleaning and disinfecting in public spaces, with a focus on the front desk surfaces, door handles and public bathrooms.
PPE: All employees are required to wear PPE and are provided masks, gloves and sanitizers and have sanitizers available for guest use.
We will be phasing in opening all of our facility based on the latest orders from the State and Local Governments.
