OTTAWA — The Hotel Association of Canada is issuing an updated fourth iteration of Safe Stay guidelines as COVID-19 vaccinations rates continue to rise and provincial restrictions are lifted.
More Than 2,200 Canadian hotels have consulted Safe Stay guidelines to assist their operations, which was developed by the American Hotel & Lodging Association and adopted for Canadian hotels to keep both employees and staff safe.
The Public Health Agency of Canada (PHAC) suggests that fully vaccinated individuals are not required to wear masks in the following circumstances: outdoors with a small group of fully vaccinated individuals, indoors with a small group of fully vaccinated individuals or outdoors with people from multiple households who are unvaccinated, partially vaccinated or their vaccination status is unknown. However, PHAC recognizes provincial and municipal guidance may differ.
Safe Stay can be downloaded in both English and French from HAC’s website.
