To support our medical service providers and the medical teams travelling to Brisbane to aid us in these challenging times, The Kingsford will be offering them the rest they need to continue to protect and care for our community. Our hotel will cater to the needs of medical workers that want to reduce the chance of spreading the virus to their families or don’t want to travel too far from the hospital.
As doctors, nurses and public health professionals step up to join the battle against the spread of COVID-19, it’s important to us that we show our gratitude and ensure that they have safe and secure accommodation. The reality is that they are at the frontline of this outbreak and are putting their health at risk and are at the greatest danger of contracting COVID-19.
If you have friends or family that are public health workers, medical service providers living in Brisbane or travelling to Brisbane to support the COVID-19 crisis, please inform them of this offer. They will be able to book their accommodation by contacting our reception at firstname.lastname@example.org or through 07 3622 0400.
We have already introduced enhanced health and hygiene protocols to protect our guests, staff and community.
These measures include:
- Increasing the frequency of cleaning of high-touch surfaces and public areas such as doorknobs, elevators, hotel reception desk, and public bathrooms, EFTPOS machines (after each use) and room keys after each use with the use of a hospital-grade disinfectant.
- The continued use of hospital-grade cleaning products and meticulous sanitisation protocols to clean rooms after guests depart and before the next guest arrives, with particular attention paid to high-touch items.
- Increased sanitisation of the food preparation table for takeaway meals and food trays.
- Daily staff briefings to educate and train on the practices and actions as recommended by the Chief Health Officer to prevent the spread of the virus.
- All of hotel receptionists and housekeepers have a Certificate Acknowledgment of Infection Control Training – COVID-19.
This is an uncertain and difficult time for all of us and in the midst of this, we have a responsibility to contribute to the effort and provide some reprieve to our wonderful medical workers that are continuing to protect our community.
