We realize this is a bit of an inconvenience but the info below is here to make it as painless as possible. We also hope that this requirement will be lifted soon and it is possible it may not even apply to your upcoming vacation depending on your dates but currently there is no set end date.
Please note these recommendations have been provided to you but we are not in any way affiliated with any testing facilities and cannot guarantee availability, pricing, or on time delivery of results. There are also MANY other options available to you if you do your own research.
Please be respectful of our new guidelines outlined below. We want to create a safe work environment for our staff and an enjoyable one for our guests. Please let us know if you have any concerns.
Sanitizing & hand washing is required upon entering. Hand washing should be as frequently as possible after that between tasks. All staff will follow proper hand washing procedures. Hand sanitizer can be used when hand washing is not immediately possible. Sanitizer will be provided in common areas (alcohol based at least 60% alcohol)
Temperatures of staff members are taken as staff arrive in the morning and as they depart in the evening. Guests will be asked to have their temperature taken daily. A log is kept of staff, guests, vendors etc. who enter (name, date and time, phone number, email, temperature checked). Any staff presenting with a fever will be asked to leave property immediately, any guest presenting with a fever will be asked to self-isolate.
All hard surfaces will be cleaned with approved disinfectants. Two daily cleanings of all touchable surfaces using sanitizing wipes or solutions have been scheduled and will be tracked morning and evening. This includes doorknobs, light switches, faucets, toilet handles, fridge handles, coffee pot, iPads, handrails, remote controls etc.
When guests are present, masks are required to be worn by all staff members. Masks and gloves are encouraged but optional when no guests are present as long as social distancing is taking place.
Guests are asked to remain 6 ft apart from other staff members and guests when possible. Limit physical contact when possible and avoid handshaking, hugs, etc.
Staff will wipe down menus to disinfect after each use. Guests are encouraged to sit spaced apart at three tables on the main dining level rather than all at the main table. At a guest's request, staff can purchase one time use paper dishes/ paper napkins/ plastic silverware etc. to be used for meals.
Guests have the option to choose minimal staffing. Staff will stay at home if they show any signs of being sick. If they become sick at work, they will notify owners immediately and go home or to the doctor. If anyone has been in recent contact with someone who tests positive for COVID-19, owners will be alerted immediately and proper actions will be taken.
One time use hand towels readily available in shared bathrooms (powder room and poolside bathroom). Guests will be encouraged to use the bathroom in the suite they are occupying as much as possible. Hand washing instructions to be put in bathrooms and kitchen as reminder to both staff and guests.
Many of our recent guests have found PV to feel very safe, and in some cases even safer than their own hometown. PV and where you will be staying are both going above and beyond to make sure tourists are taken care of, new cleaning and disinfecting protocols are in place, masks are being worn, limitations on gatherings are in place and social distancing is encouraged. Restaurants are operating at a reduced capacity to allow for more generous spacing between groups. Most things being done in cities across the US have been introduced down in PV so that you can have a safe and memorable vacation.
