As we are all adjusting to new travel norms, Larkin Hospitality is committed to ensuring the safety and well being of our guests and employees every step of the way.
In the last few months, Larkin Hospitality has taken a series of precautionary steps in response to this developing public health impact. These include increased cleaning and sanitizing procedures at all of our properties. While there is no proven playbook for how to handle the situation we are currently in, we have made a commitment that we will continue to be driven by data, science and public health guidelines as we evaluate and evolve these safety protocols and policies.
Public health experts say that it will take some time for life to return to a sense of normalcy, and even at that point we will have a new definition of what normal is. What we can do now is take what we know about the virus and give our employees and guests the tools they need to be safe and responsible, along with create environments designed to curb its spread.
As we prepare for the future, our priority is adjusting in a manner that puts health and safety at the center of our operations. We believe it is our role and responsibility during this time to prioritize two things: the health and well-being of our employees and guests, while also playing a constructive role in supporting local health officials and government leaders as they work to contain the virus.
