We have all watched China, then Italy and Spain facedown the COVID-19 virus. COVID-19 has devastated families and communities, and will continue to impact the travel business for the foreseeable future. We are unsure of so many things, but here at Party Squasher we join in the global refrain that ‘we are in this together’ and hope your guests, neighbors, and our communities continue to STAY SAFE.
Now is the time to invest in your long term business and ensure your stakeholders feel your commitment to their safety. Simple gestures such as adding extra layers of cleaning and disinfection, adding days between stays, providing guests face masks, and providing contactless interactions will mean a lot to your stakeholders. Party Squasher can be an important tool to protecting guests and neighbors by limiting large congregations.
With these increased safety activities, be sure to also increase communications with your guests, neighbors, and community about your efforts to protect them. Take the long view with your employees, customers, and stakeholders. Consider suspending operations, especially if you employ hosts/managers that might be put at risk. Offer refunds or credits for future stays to customers.
Think long term and stay safe.
