The Treehouse Lodge team has been working on guidelines to prevent Covid-19 and maintain all safety precautions, both for guests and their workers, to be able to adapt to the new normal, receive guests again at the lodge and offer you an unforgettable and safe experience in the middle of the Peruvian jungle.
Below we detail the 7 proposed guidelines to face the global Covid-19 pandemic at Treehouse Lodge.
1. Cleaning and disinfection of work centers
During the months that we did not receive guests, the lodge’s areas were kept clean. But, before operating again in August, a deep cleaning was also carried out, followed by disinfection guided by the official MINSA recommendations to prevent Covid-19.
These are the areas of the hotel that will be subjected to constant cleaning and disinfection, at least twice a day:
- Office, kitchen, dining room, gazebo, access, bridges, walkways, transport units, community toilets, and rooms (will also be cleaned after each reservation).
2. Evaluation of the health condition of workers
The health of each Treehouse Lodge worker is very important to us, that is why we have a person in charge of the Occupational Health Service who will manage all the processes of reincorporation of the workers and the constant processes such as taking the temperature before entering the hotel.
3. Mandatory hand washing and disinfection
Proper handwashing is very important to prevent the spread of COVID-19. For this reason, at Treehouse Lodge we have set up hand washing and disinfection points in different areas to comply with the recommended prevention measures.
The following spots will be conditioned with liquid soap, hand sanitizer with 70 to 95% alcohol, paper towels, and toilet paper:
- Office, entrance to the lodge, kitchen, dining room, gazebo, transport units, community toilets, and rooms.
Also, posters will be posted at each hand washing and disinfection point on the correct way to wash hands.
4. Raising awareness of the prevention of contagion
After the period of isolation, each Treehouse Lodge worker will receive training about the prevention and protection of the coronavirus. Likewise, hand washing reminders will be posted and the use of masks will be mandatory.
5. Preventive measures of collective application
Another of the preventive measures that have been taken in the lodge is the adequate ventilation of rooms, the cyclical renewal of air volume, social distancing (minimum of 1.5 m) and, always using a mask.
The capacity of all common areas has also been defined, in the dining room the respective social distancing must be maintained (minimum 2 meters) and the previously established shifts must be respected. In the case of excursions, the required distance will also be maintained. Also, physical barriers will be implemented in shared modules. When registering guests, we will try to avoid contact or exchanging materials.
The transport used for transfers from the airport will be conditioned to isolate the driver; he and the passengers will be provided with: liquid soap or disinfectant, alcohol gel or 70% alcohol, masks and face shield, cleaning cloths, as well as safe and effective surface disinfectants.
6. Personal protection measures
Respirators and /or masks (Epp) must be worn at all times at Treehouse Lodge.
7. Surveillance of worker’s health in the context of COVID-19
As a surveillance activity against Covid-19, the body temperature of all workers will be controlled at the time of entering and ending the working day.
