Even though we are currently still in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, many tourists come to visit Singapore for tours or just a staycation. The number of tourists in Singapore makes those who come to visit and stay at Tanjong Pagar Hotel must pay attention to various things to maintain health.
Here are some things that must be considered when you stay in order to feel comfortable and safe from the threat of COVID-19.
Tips for Comfortable Staying at a Hotel During Pandemic
- Research the selected hotel
After deciding to travel to Singapore, it is time to choose the hotel where you will stay. First, research several hotels in the area and pay close attention to what health protocols they apply. Of course, choose a hotel whose management supports the strict implementation of health protocols and all services that minimize touch.
- Wear a mask and keep your distance
In accordance with general health protocols, you must wear a mask and keep your distance when outside the room. In lobbies, restaurants, elevators, swimming pools, and all open spaces in hotels, it is mandatory to apply this health protocol for the good of yourself and others.
- Ask for a room that hasn’t been occupied for a few days
Please ensure that the room you are going to occupy has been vacated for at least three days before you enter. That way, there is time for the room to ‘rest’ before being filled with guests again. Do not accept if the room has just been left by a previous guest or has only been vacant for one day.
- Clean the room when you just come in
Of course, the hotel manager has cleaned all the parts and facilities in the room. But there’s nothing wrong with re-cleaning. Therefore, always carry hand sanitizer and tissue to clean frequently touched objects, such as television remotes, light switches, doorknobs, table surfaces, and frequently touched objects in the bathroom.
- Put up a “do not disturb” sign
A “do not disturb” sign should be posted in front of the door when leaving the hotel temporarily. This easy method adds an extra level of security because hotel employees will not enter the room, especially if guests are carrying valuables.
In addition, you should not need to ask for room cleaning services during your stay. That way, fewer people will be able to enter or access your room. And this step certainly prevents the spread of COVID-19.
- Choose your travel destination wisely
Pay attention to whether the tourist destination or place you are going to is a green zone, yellow zone, or COVID-19 red zone. Choose a hotel that is in the COVID-19 green zone and set a schedule for arrival and return or check-in and check-out.
Keep in mind, choosing a hotel or inn in the green zone does not mean you will be free from COVID-19 infection because after all there are many people who come to the hotel and they come from various places.
