Global industry research continues to highlight that prospective travelers place a high value to health safety certifications as the top consideration when choosing their vacation destination and accommodation provider. It is vital for hospitality businesses to continue to train their teams and seek these resources that will help provide reassurances to visitors, employees and residents.
These are not certifications, these are recognitions of your health safety commitment. Receipt of these tools is based on commitment from the organization to implement and continue compliance of the requirements set forth by CHTA along with the objectives established by the CARPHA-CTO-CHTA-OECS-GTRCMC COVID-19 Task Force.
