Cleaning Protocols for Wales Self-Catering Properties and Short-Term Lets in the Context of Covid-19 to be released in due course
The WTA in partnership are in the process of drawing up cleaning protocols for short-term accommodation operators: owners, hosts, and property management companies. It is the responsibility of every self-catering or short-term rental operator to ensure that they and their properties comply with health and safety legislation in relation not only to self-catering accommodation, but also to ensure the safety of guests and staff in relation to Covid-19 once we have the go ahead to re-open. Limiting the spread of the Covid-19 Virus will be an additional consideration beyond your existing responsibilities. Owners and operators will have a duty of care to customers and staff even where specific legislation does not exist. It is essential that housekeepers and cleaners are retrained, and that managers provide them with the right equipment to carry out their jobs effectively. Watch this space.
