The management of Hostal Fernando reveals us how their confinement was.
Today, we want to introduce you Jaime Cabeza, one of the managers of Hostal Fernando for more than 12 years.
During the closure decreed by the Government of Spain, he and part of the team that builds the Hostal Fernando have been working on the maintenance of all its facilities, to be ready to reopen.
To have more details, about how confinement has been for Hostal Fernando, we asked a few questions to its director:
What has Covid-19 meant for the Hostel?
As the entire sector, a paralysis that nobody expected. We have already begun to notice its effects since the cancellation of the Mobile World Congress, where we received many cancellations, even so, we did not expect that the Covid-19 would close the Hostal Fernando for more than two months.
Which are the departments that worked in Hostal Fernando during its closure?
The essential was the maintenance team, who use this time to tune up all the rooms and adapt the hostel to the new normality, for example, installing protective screens at the hostel’s reception and placing disinfectant gel dispensers in common areas.
What hygienic and preventive measures have you had to implement?
We have had to adapt to the protocols published by the CEHAT.
– We have distributed personal protective equipment such as masks and gloves to workers.
– We use cleaning products recommended for the disinfection of Covid-19 and the frequency of disinfection and cleaning has been increased throughout the hostel.
– We disinfect the room keys every time guests leave them at reception.
– We give individual disinfectant gels in the rooms
-Each member of the team has had to be trained in preventive matters against Covid-19.
Finally, I would like that all those people who make trips during this time, they have to be aware that this pandemic has not ended and only if all of us respect prevention and security measures, we will be able to face it.
