What measures do Orlando’s tourism businesses take to prevent the spread of germs?
As the No. 1 travel destination in the U.S., Orlando takes safety extremely seriously. We have an extraordinary infrastructure of major public and private entities that work together to protect the health and safety of our residents and visitors alike.
To ensure a vacation to Orlando is both happy and healthy, our tourism businesses employ some of the highest cleanliness standards in the industry. Our major facilities that are the most common stops for visitors — such as the airport, convention center and world-famous theme parks — lead the way in best practices with rigorous health and sanitation standards across their properties, and have now increased measures even more.
These measures include:
- Frequently disinfecting common high-touch surfaces;
- Providing hand sanitizer and hand washing stations for guest convenience, especially now during this cold and flu season; and
- Ongoing employee training on hygiene practices and ensuring guests have easy access to on-site medical support.
As leaders in the industry, these businesses also maintain close relationships with local, state, national, and international public health authorities and follow their guidance if additional preventive measures are needed.
