A Message From The Venetian Resort’s President & COO

Dear Partners,

Meetings are at the heart of The Venetian Resort, and we are committed to doing everything in our power to keep your programs safe and successful. In light of the current COVID-19 pandemic, we have taken numerous steps to minimize risk and enhance safety for meeting attendees, Team Members and all Las Vegas visitors.

We appreciate the flexibility from groups that have had to make significant changes to their programs, including selecting new meeting dates. We have been working tirelessly to get our new plans in order so we will be ready for you when the time comes. In anticipation of our eventual reopening, we have reviewed all areas of our business. A detailed plan is currently in place to address these changes; from the arrival experience to the suite experience, from our meeting rooms to our exhibit halls, as well as our restaurants and lounges.

To provide transparency into these new plans and protocols, as well as our COVID-specific changes, we have combined this top-line information into a single location. This summary, which we call our Venetian Clean Commitment, represents more than 800 separate initiatives rolled out in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. It outlines our pledge to meet or exceed guidelines set forth by our national, state and local governments, and introduces new protocols to ensure all events are Venetian Clean at our Congress Center, Sands Expo Convention Center and throughout The Venetian Resort.

Full procedures and recommendations are forthcoming in a new updated Meetings Services Guide. Although these guidelines will continue to evolve, we are pleased to share this top-line overview. This summary is posted on our website, and will be updated as guidelines change.

At this time we have not announced a specific opening date. We look to data to inform our decision on when best to resume operations, and we will continue to adhere to guidance provided by our governor.

As you know, we strongly believe in the power of meetings, conferences and conventions and fully appreciate the vital fuel they contribute to a strong economy. We are ready to continue our partnership as we work together to bring to life the most dynamic group events in the industry. Until we see you again in person, please be safe and be well.

The Lodge at Torrey Pines

Lodge at Torrey Pines’ Commitment Cleanliness and Hygiene

They always take great pride in maintaining the highest standards of cleanliness and hygiene. In response to COVID-19, they have increased the frequency with which their public areas, guest rooms, and facilities are deep-cleaned and disinfected, using hospital-grade disinfectants. They also offer hand sanitizer throughout the property for guest and employee use.

Staff Training and Hygiene:

Hand Sanitation: Employees are reminded daily by managers of proper and frequent handwashing technique – emphasizing its importance in combating the spread of viruses.

Employee Training: All resort employees have completed enhanced COVID-19 prevention and preparedness training.

Cleaning Protocols:

Guest Rooms: After guests depart and before the next guest arrives, their housekeeping team thoroughly cleans and disinfects guest rooms with a heightened focus on frequently touched surfaces.

Public Areas: We have increased the frequency of cleaning and disinfecting in public spaces, with a focus on high-trafficked areas.

For Employees

Non-Attendance Policy: Their staff members have a strict prevention program in place that includes not reporting to work when demonstrating any cold or flu-like symptoms, and call-offs related to illness are reported to our Human Resources team for monitoring. Employees who exhibit flu-like symptoms or live with someone who exhibits such symptoms are required to stay away from work for 14 days from the last day the person exhibits such symptoms.

Travel Protocol: They have curtailed business travel to impacted areas and employees have been instructed to inform the hotel of the destination and means of any personal travel. Employees returning from any country or region designated by the CDC as a warning level of 2 or 3 or by the Department of State as level 3 or 4 are required to remain away from the hotel for 14 days after their last day in the area of question.

Guest Recommendations

They encourage everyone to follow guidance offered by the CDC as it pertains to prevention and treatment and review the latest updates on Coronavirus Disease 2019 Information for Travel.

Prevention: They encourage you to follow CDC recommendations and the same personal best practices that are standard for typical flu season – frequent washing of hands; avoiding contact with eyes, nose, and mouth; and limiting exposure to other sick people

Experiencing Symptoms: To safeguard the health of our guests and other visitors, they ask that you postpone your visit if you are ill with flu-like symptoms, or if you have recently traveled to a region that is experiencing widespread transmission of COVID-19. We also request that you assist us in their efforts by immediately reporting to them any flu-like symptoms you may experience during your stay. They will be happy to assist in locating appropriate medical treatment in the area.

Silverado Resort and Spa Statement on Coronavirus (COVID-19)

The health and safety of our members, guests, and associates is our highest priority. We are closely monitoring the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and World Health Organization’s statements regarding the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) cases and following the guidelines from these agencies as well as local health departments and medical professionals. As the COVID-19 virus continues to spread throughout the country, we wanted to share some of the actions Silverado Resort is taking to help protect both you and our associates.

Our housekeeping department has increased the frequency and rigor of cleaning all public areas, elevators and guest restrooms. Items cleaned in public spaces and guestrooms include phones, remotes, and touch-points. Hand sanitizer dispensers are located in our public spaces and meeting areas.

For associates who have direct contact with guests, i.e. front desk agents and bellmen, we provide them and all associates with surface disinfecting products and hand sanitizer bottles and/or dispensers.

Our managers have been provided with details of the CDC guidelines to share with their associates during pre-shift meetings. Managers will ask associates to stay home when they are sick. Additionally, we have communicated directly to all associates regarding the necessity of safe hand-washing and hygiene practices.

The CDC has not issued a travel health notice for the continental U.S. regarding the COVID-19 virus. The CDC’s Prevention & Treatment guidelines provide travelers with the best methods of protecting themselves against possible infection. From the CDC:

“…CDC always recommends everyday preventive actions to help prevent the spread of respiratory diseases, including:

Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth [with unwashed hands].
Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash.
Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces [such as your laptop or cell phone].
Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after going to the bathroom; before eating; and after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing.
If soap and water are not readily available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol. Always wash hands with soap and water if hands are visibly dirty.”

From every single associate at Silverado Resort and Spa we take great pride in the role that we play each day and understand that this issue is cause for concern. Rest assured that as circumstances continue to develop, one thing will remain the same: We will make our decisions with the health and well-being of our members, guests, associates and communities as our highest priority.

We look forward to welcoming you to Silverado Resort and Spa and to Napa, California.

The property has donated about $100,000 worth of food from the resort’s 20 bars and restaurants to three charities in the Riverside County area. Pallets of fresh berries, 461 gallons of milk, and dozens of 25-pound bags of onions, carrots, and celery were among the shipments to organizations providing food assistance to the area’s most needy.
