LANCASTER, Pa. (PRWEB) July 30, 2020
The Cartoon Network Hotel is officially reopening on Monday, August 3. Adhering closely to guidelines set by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) as well as local and national government officials in response to COVID-19, the Hotel will be implementing strengthened sanitation procedures and new safety measures for the health of all team members and guests.
“The health and safety of our guests and team members continues to be our top priority as we work to reopen the Cartoon Network Hotel in this new environment,” said General Manager Ryan O’Donnell. “We will continue working in step with local leaders, health experts and our industry colleagues to ensure best practices are in place at the Hotel.”
Key elements of the Cartoon Network Hotel’s new safety measures include:
Temperature Checks Upon Arrival
Face Coverings and Personal Protective Equipment
Adding Sanitizing Stations
Enhancing Cleaning Measures
Educating Guests & Team Members
The Hotel will limit not just overall capacity on the property, but also the number of guests in each dining location, the Cartoon Network Hotel store, and every recreational area to ensure compliance with recommended social distancing standards.
Upon arrival, guests will find signage reinforcing the importance of social distancing, following markers placed on the ground throughout the property, parking lots and entrance areas. All guests and team members will be required to have their temperature checked before entering the Hotel, with any person exhibiting a temperature of 100.4° Fahrenheit or higher (or displaying other symptoms related to COVID-19) denied entry.
Face masks will be required for all team members and guests in common areas, except children under three years of age. Guests will be required to remove their masks in water attractions including both pools and “The Powerpuff Girls” “Splashville” splash pad. Team members may also wear additional personal protective equipment, including gloves and/or face shields, while performing select work activities. Hand sanitizing stations have been added all around the property, and thorough cleaning will be conducted at regular intervals throughout the day at high-traffic locations. All of these cleaning and safety measures will be reinforced through instructional signage and additional staff training, and visitors will be able to purchase masks and hand sanitizer at the Cartoon Network Hotel store, located just off the main lobby.
Visitors will find new sights beyond the cleaning and safety measures. With the arrival of warm summer weather comes the official opening of the property’s new resort-style, zero entry pool complete with a water slide, cabanas for rent, and the Land of P’Oool Outdoor Concession Stand. Next to the pool, guests can enjoy the new “The Powerpuff Girls” “Splashville” splash pad. And, to round out the summer experience, the Hotel will premiere its outdoor movie screen. All of these additions will also be subject to the cleaning measures listed above.
