Jurys Announces Five Point Health And Safety Plan For Its Hotels

Jurys has announced a five-point plan to help protect the health of guests and staff when it reopens its hotels.

The group, which operates 48 hotels across Ireland and the UK under the Jurys and Leonardo brands, intends to reopen its four hotels in the Republic of Ireland on July 20. The rest of its properties will reopen on a phased basis based on guidance from health authorities and the UK government.

The group’s five point health and safety plan involves increased cleaning and checks of shared spaces and bedrooms, social distancing measures, online check-in, cashless payments, and alterations to food and drinks services, including leaving room service orders outside room doors, providing disposable cups for tea and coffee, and making menus available exclusively online.

Ensuring Guests And Staff Feel Safe

The Irish Times quotes managing director of Jurys Inn and Leonardo Hotels UK and Ireland Jason Carruthers as saying, “We wanted above all to make sure that customers feel confident about staying at our hotels and feel safe doing so. Equally importantly, we wanted to make sure our employees feel the same.”

Carruthers stated that the group is following World Health Organization guidance on health and safety measures, and that it will initially allocate lower floor rooms to guests to ensure that lifts are only used by those who need them most.

Additionally, while face masks will be optional for guests, they will be mandatory for employees who works in areas where social distancing cannot be guaranteed, such as kitchens.
