The deadly coronavirus has been the talk of the globe lately and the number of infected people seems to be skyrocketing with each passing day. From congested market places to deserted hotels, the virus is spreading its wings across every industry. Amidst the slowdown of global travel, the hotel industry is also bracing up for the impact. However, while it is for the best if one refrains from globe-trotting at this point of time, for some, travel and hotel stays are an inevitable part of their job. At places like a hotel that remains thronged throughout the day, whether you are a staff member or a mere tripper looking for a temporary abode, it becomes imperative to take precautionary measures against the lethal virus.

In light of the virus outbreak, Suresh Nanda, Chairman of Claridges Group of Hotels, advised hoteliers to devise precautionary protocols including deep-cleaning measures across the hotel premises – restaurant, kitchen, public areas, etc. “At Claridges, we take the health and wellbeing of our guests and staff members at the utmost priority because of which extra measures have been undertaken to ensure their safety,” he said.
Since the symptoms of coronavirus illness range from mild fever, cough and respiratory problems – similar to flu, the hotelier suggested body temperature measurement of newly arrived guests as an extra precautionary step. Furthermore, to safeguard the dining experience of the guests, Suresh Nanda emphasised upon the need to undertake various measures to ensure food hygiene safety. "It is advisable for the chefs to wash their hands on a frequent basis and wear gloves while handling any food item,” he added.

With almost two decades of experience in the hospitality sector, the entrepreneur has achieved much acclamation during his venture and has been a major catalyst in bringing a positive change in the industry. His hotel, the Claridges Group, is known for its lush atmosphere, professional staff and fine dining. However, in the wake of the virus spread, Suresh Nanda is further looking to go an extra mile to ensure the wellbeing of the guests and staff alike.
