Travel Information: COVID-19

Allegretto Vineyard Resort is actively monitoring the state of the COVID-19 virus and has stepped up precautionary measures on preventing the spread of the Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19).

The safety of our guests and employees are of paramount importance to us. Allegretto Vineyard Resort will do everything that we can to ensure that our guests have a safe and pleasant stay. This Health and Safety program outlines all of the precautionary measures we have implemented to ensure your meetings and events are safe.

A Message from the Owner

At Allegretto Vineyard Resort, we care deeply for our family of employees and guests alike and understand their need to be reassured that their health and safety is at the forefront of our priorities. As we move to the next phase of our state’s Stay-at-Home order where more businesses will be allowed to open and slightly larger gatherings will be allowed to occur with strict guidelines, we have devised a program that carefully outlines all of the measures that Allegretto is taking so that you can be confident that your stay with us will be in a safe environment. This plan adheres to Cal/OSHA requirements and is guided by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and our county’s Public Health Department, and presents what our employees will be doing, what cleaning products we use and sanitation protocols we have in place. It outlines how we will handle physical distancing, food and beverage preparation and serving, meetings and events, and what the new guest experience will look like.

Allegretto’s Health and Safety Program will be continually updated as changes occur and as we incrementally reopen, there may be a need to pull back if a spike in Covid-19 cases occurs. For now, it is our hope that this plan will be reassuring for you so you can feel confident and relaxed during your stay with us.

Employee Responsibilities

Handwashing

Correct hygiene and frequent handwashing with soap is vital to help combat the spread of virus. All employees have been instructed to wash their hands, or use sanitizer when a sink is not available, every 60 minutes (for 20-seconds) and after any of the following activities: using the restroom, sneezing, touching the face, blowing the nose, cleaning, sweeping, mopping, smoking, eating, drinking, entering the hotel, going on break and before or after starting a shift.

COVID - 19 Training

All employees have received training on COVID-19 safety and sanitation protocols with more comprehensive training for our teams with frequent guest contact including Housekeeping, Food & Beverage, Public Area Department, Hotel Operations and Security.

Personal Protective Equipment (PPE)

Appropriate PPE will be worn by all employees based on their role and responsibilities and in adherence to state or local regulations and guidance. Training on how to properly use and dispose of all PPE is mandatory. Every employee entering the resort is provided a mask and gloves which are required to wear while on property.

Cleaning Products & Protocols

Our resort uses cleaning products and protocols which meet EPA guidelines and are approved for use and effective against viruses, bacteria and other airborne and bloodborne pathogens. We are working with our vendors, distribution partners and suppliers to ensure an uninterrupted supply of these cleaning supplies and the necessary PPE.

Public Spaces and Communal Areas

The frequency of cleaning and sanitizing has been increased in all public spaces with an emphasis on frequent contact surfaces including, but not limited to, front desk check-in counters, bell desks, elevators and elevator buttons, door handles, public bathrooms, room keys and locks, ATMs, stair handrails, gym equipment, dining surfaces and seating areas.

Guest Rooms

Industry leading cleaning and sanitizing protocols are used to clean guest rooms, with particular attention paid to high-touch items including television remote controls, toilet seats and handles, door and furniture handles, water faucet handles, nightstands, telephones, in-room control panels, light switches, temperature control panels, alarm clocks, luggage racks and flooring.

Laundry

All bed linen and laundry will be changed daily and continue to be washed at a high temperature and in accordance with CDC guidelines. Dirty linen will be bagged in the guest room to eliminate excess contact while being transported to the laundry facility.

Air Filter and HVAC Cleaning

The frequency of air filter replacement and HVAC system cleaning has been increased and fresh air exchange will be maximized.

High Efficiency Disinfection Mister

We have purchased a hospital-grade misting system to disinfect our rooms and public areas. This machine, the Kärcher® PS 4/7 Bp delivers disinfectant into hard-to- reach corners and crevices, improving coverage more efficiently and effectively than spray wipe methods. It is used with Vital Oxide® disinfectant which reduces the risk of infections by killing virus, bacteria and mold, faster, safer and quieter.
