Travel in the New Normal: Industry Guidance for Promoting the Health and Safety of All Travelers

The “Travel in the New Normal” guidance is focused on six main areas, with the document providing specific examples for each:

  1. Travel businesses should adapt operations, modify employee practices and/or redesign public spaces to help protect employees and customers.
  2. Travel businesses should consider implementing touchless solutions, where practical, to limit the opportunity for virus transmission while also enabling a positive travel experience.
  3. Travel businesses should adopt and implement enhanced sanitation procedures specifically designed to combat the transmission of COVID-19.
  4. Travel businesses should promote health screening measures for employees and isolate workers with possible COVID-19 symptoms and provide health resources to customers.
  5. Travel businesses should establish a set of procedures aligned with CDC guidance should an employee test positive for COVID-19.
  6. Travel businesses should follow best practices in food and beverage service to promote health of employees and customers.



“Safe Stay” is AHLA's initiative focused on enhanced hotel cleaning practices, social interactions, and workplace protocols to meet the new health and safety challenges and expectations presented by COVID-19.
