While making the difficult decision to close during this unprecedented time, Treetops personnel will remain to ensure the operation of essential functions on the resort continue as we prepare for our Guests’ return. Daily, our resort will continue to ensure that the latest guidance on hygiene and cleaning measures are met and that our Employee and Community Safety is at the forefront of our actions.
Employee Health and Safety Knowledge is essential to the effectiveness of designed safety measures. Here are a few guidelines to remember, keeping in mind that the best way to prevent infection is to avoid exposure:
- Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. If soap and water are not available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer.
- Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
- Avoid close contact with others, especially those who are sick.
- Refrain from shaking hands with others for the time being.
- Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash.
- Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces.
- Perhaps the most important message we can give: stay home when you are feeling ill or are taking care of an ill family member.
To help limit contact:
- Treetops is working on staggering employee starting and departing times, along with lunch and break periods, to minimize overcrowding in common areas such as elevators, break rooms, etc. Employees are advised to refrain from sharing office space, equipment, and phones. Based on what is currently known about the virus, spread from person-to-person happens most frequently among close contacts (within 6 feet).
- Employees are to perform routine environmental cleaning: clean all frequently touched surfaces in the workplace, such as workstations, countertops and doorknobs. Use the cleaning agents that are usually used in these areas, no additional disinfection beyond routine cleaning is recommended by the CDC at this time. Use disposable wipes so that commonly used surfaces (for example, doorknobs, keyboards, remote controls, desks) can be wiped down by employees before each use.
- Departments are utilizing remote work capacities and cyber-security needs where available. Consider teleconference or other remote work tools in lieu of meeting in person when available.
- Safety & Security – information about the coronavirus has been stationed on each “Right to Know” bulletin board in each Treetops department. Additionally, steps are being taken to enhance the security of our property and limit access into specific buildings.
- Personal Protective Equipment – The World Health Organization (WHO) has stated that people only need to wear face masks if they are treating someone who is infected with COVID-19. Likewise, gloves can protect your hands from coming into contact with the virus, yet the virus remains on the surface of the gloves and may even last longer if they are not washed frequently, leading to an increased risk of catching the virus by touching your face or food with your gloves, as well as the risk of passing it on to others. Doctors agree that the best defense against COVID-19 and influenza is simply washing your hands.
