Reopening Hotel and Travel GUIDELINES

Reopening Hotel and Travel Guidelines

In partnership with the American Hotel and Lodging Association and U.S. Travel, AzLTA has compiled the latest health and safety guidelines and resources for reopening Arizona’s travel and hospitality businesses. Below is additional information which also includes guidance from the Governor’s Office. These guides provide ideas and concepts for interactions between guests and employees, workplace cleaning and safety suggestions. As everyone continues to learn more about operating a lodging facility during the COVID-19 pandemic and beyond, it’s important to stay updated on the latest information from the Center for Disease Controlthe Arizona Department of Health Services and your own local county health department.

As COVID-19 continues to impact our industry, we are continuously sharing all available resources to the entire hospitality, travel and tourism industry on our  COVID-19 page. If you are not a member and would like to join AzLTA or be added to our distribution list, please send your contact information to

“Safe Stay” is focused on enhanced hotel cleaning practices, social interactions, and workplace protocols to meet the new health and safety challenges and expectations presented by COVID-19.The standards of Safe Stay were developed under the guidance of an Advisory Council, comprised of industry leaders representing all segments of the hotel industry, and in conjunction with public health experts to advance best practices for protecting against the coronavirus.

U.S. Travel developed industry-wide health and safety guidance to ensure a consistent approach to safety that travelers can expect through all touchpoints in their journey, in the era of this “new normal”. This document follows an intense, collaborative effort between U.S. Travel, member organizations, other industry associations and medical experts to derive the guidance that all sectors of the travel industry can apply and each vertical segment can expand upon as necessary.
