We used recommendations from the CDC to compile a list of additional precautions hosts can take to reduce the spread of COVID-19 in addition to the standard cleaning protocol.
Limit guest count based on state and local capacity guidelines
Space out bookings to allow for enhanced cleaning
Follow CDC guidelines for cleaning and disinfecting the space between every booking
Disinfect high touch surfaces and shared amenities such as light switches, door knobs and coffee machines with EPA-approved products
Properly clean or remove soft, porous materials
Schedule a licensed professional cleaner to come between bookings
Provide a supply of disinfecting wipes, disposable gloves, or disposable masks for guests
Reconfigure the space or add markers to allow for physical distance
Hosts have the ability to add details about how they clean their space and what cleaning amenities they have for guests. Keep an eye out for these details on the listing page.
The golden rule is to stay at least six feet apart from anyone you do not live with.
All attendees should wear a mask that covers both their nose and mouth while indoors or in close proximity to one another.
Increasing outdoor air ventilation can help minimize risk. If there’s outdoor space, stay outside if you can.
And frequently. Use warm water and soap and wash for at least twenty seconds. If water and soap are not available, use a hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol.
You’ll find which additional measures the host is taking on the listing page.
To ensure the safety of every individual, we ask that you be responsible for your own face mask. Some hosts may provide personal protective equipment, and it will be noted under their cleaning protocol on the listing.
Wear a mask, increase outdoor air flow, maintain physical distance, and wash your hands. You can see more details in our guidelines above.
Make sure to document the condition of the space and reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org no later than 72 hours after your booking start time.
