    Carey Standard of Cleanliness
    As always, we take great care in maintaining the highest standards of cleanliness and hygiene throughout Carey Centre, Cafeteria and Classrooms. We have supplemented these normal procedures with additional COVID-19 cleanliness-specific guidance, training, and information to make our cleaning and hygiene protocols even more rigorous:
    • Our facilities and housekeeping team members are receiving ongoing briefings and enhanced operating/cleaning protocols.
    • We have increased the frequency of cleaning our public areas including lobbies, elevator, door handles, public bathrooms, stairways, and even room keys.
    • Additions to our normal high standard, cleaning, and disinfecting protocols to clean rooms after guests depart and before the next guest arrives have been increased, with attention paid to high-touch items.
    • In the spaces where team members work behind the scenes, we have increased the frequency of cleaning and focusing on high-touch areas like entrances, housekeeping room. laundry room and staff offices.
    • We will continue to adjust our food service in accordance with current food safety recommendations. Carey Café is open for breakfast, lunch, dinner, and take-outs from September – April.
    • We have increased the deployment of antibacterial hand sanitizers throughout our properties.

    What did we change?
