In addition, Shurooq’s hospitality is also welcoming guests at The Chedi Al Bait, Sharjah and all three Sharjah Collection properties – Al Badayer Retreat, Al Faya Retreat and Kingfisher Retreat.
To keep social distancing protocols, there will be put visible markings and stickers helping visitors stick to the two-meter distance. All guests will have their temperature checked on arrival, and there will be a walk-through sanitization booth prior to entering the venue.
In order to provide safety, common areas will be regularly disinfected during operational hours and people are required to wearing masks or they won’t be allowed to enter. Visitors aged 12 and below, and seniors over 60 still will not be permitted to access these destinations until further notice.
All destinations have been prepared well before the reopening, and authorities have put safety and cleaning protocols including distant seating policies, sanitizing public spots such as door handles, railings and elevator buttons.
Novel Coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2, also known as COVID-19) is a new strain of coronavirus which is causing illness in humans and animals. Most people infected with the COVID-19 coronavirus will feel mild to moderate respiratory illness and recover without any special treatment. Older people, as well as those with underlying medical problems like cardiovascular disease, chronic respiratory disease, cancer or diabetes, are more likely to develop serious illness, and require immediate assistance. Novel Coronavirus was first identified in a cluster with pneumonia symptoms in Wuhan city, Hubei province of China, quickly spreading around the world. On early March 2020, the coronavirus COVID-19 pandemic had officially started, becoming the defining global health crisis of our time. Today, it is the greatest challenge people have faced since World War II, worsened by subsequent lockdowns of whole countries, collapse of entire industries, and a major economic recession.
