Information about COVID-19
Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome Coronavirus-2 (SARS-CoV-2) is the name given to the most recent coronavirus that originated this past winter in China. COVID-19 is the name of the disease associated with the virus.
While animals are believed to be the original source of contagion, the virus spread is mainly from person to person. The virus is transmitted via small respiratory droplets through sneezing or coughing or when people interact with each other for some time in close proximity. These droplets can be inhaled, or they can land on surfaces that others may come into contact with, who can then get infected when they touch their nose, mouth or eyes.
The COVID-19 virus can survive several hours, or even up to several days, on certain surfaces (metal, plastic etc).
In light of these scientific findings, we have decided to enforce a “safe window period” between guests, that is, to wait for a minimum of 24 hours between the check-out of guests from a property and the check-in of the following guests, by blocking the apartment.
This extra measure, added to a thorough cleaning and disinfection process, will reduce any potential risk of contagion between visitors.
