These Standards outline standards for general cleaning, staff health and communication, and procedures for checking guests in and cleaning after check-out. This intervention aims to provide people with a place to self-isolate or quarantine if they do not have a permanent home or if they are returning from travel and do not wish to infect members of their household.
