ATLANTIC CITY, NJ (April 7, 2021) – Resorts Casino Hotel is proud to announce that it has become Sharecare Health Security VERIFIED™ with Forbes Travel Guide. The comprehensive facility verification helps ensure that guests and travel planners can book with confidence at properties that have appropriate health safety procedures in place.
This verification comes with an easily identifiable “seal of approval” – the Sharecare VERIFIED™ with Forbes Travel Guide badge – based on a hotel’s compliance with expert-validated best practices that minimize the risk and impact of COVID-19 and potential future public health events.
“We are very proud of becoming Sharecare Health Security VERIFIED™ with Forbes Travel Guide,” said Mark Giannantonio, President & CEO of Resorts Casino Hotel. “We have worked tirelessly over the past year to make sure Resorts Casino Hotel is a safe environment for our guests and team members, and we will continue to maintain this verification by keeping the health and safety of everyone who walks through our doors a top priority.”
Developed by Forbes Travel Guide, the global authority on hospitality excellence, and digital health industry leader Sharecare, the comprehensive verification covers more than 360 standards across health and hygiene protocols, cleaning products and procedures, ventilation, physical distancing, the guest experience, and health safety communication with guests and employees. Hotels are required to verify their health protocols on an ongoing basis to ensure continued compliance with the most up-to-date global health standards.
“The pandemic has made it clear that hotels and resorts must, first and foremost, assure guests of their safety,” said Filip Boyen, CEO of Forbes Travel Guide. “By becoming VERIFIED™, Resorts Casino Hotel has demonstrated its commitment to creating a culture of accountability and following global best practices to heighten health security, verified by a third party.”
In response to the global COVID-19 pandemic, Resorts Casino Hotel developed the “Play Safe, Work Safe” operations plan to create a fun, comfortable and safe environment for all guests and team members. This plan has incorporated advanced cleaning, sanitization and a bipolar ionization air purification system that is proven to be 99% effective in neutralizing COVID-19. Safety protocols were also implemented, including mask requirements, enforced social distancing, providing hand sanitizer and hand wipe stations throughout the property, implementing capacity limits at restaurants, mobile hotel check-in/check out, and more. In addition, all team members were required to complete an extensive training program to ensure they follow CDC and industry-wide health and safety guidelines prior to returning to work.
All health and safety protocols at Resorts Casino Hotel are regularly reviewed and updated to reflect the needs of the community, along with state and federal recommendations. For the full “Play Safe, Work Safe” operations plan, visit resortsac.com.
