Operating Standards


  • Guest & Employee Health Concerns. Our staff has been given clear instructions on how to respond swiftly and report any and all presumed illnesses. Employees are instructed to stay home if they any symptoms consistent with COVID-19 and/or if they do not feel well enough to work. All employees will receive COVID-19 training (safety and sanitation protocols).


Health and Services Practices

At Alisal Ranch, we care deeply about our family of guests, members, employees, and our community. This plan presents what we will do to keep everyone as safe as possible. In addition to the plan below, each operating department has its own customized set of procedures. We have relied on the best available science and sanitization methods to develop our plans, which we will continue to refine and update as additional information becomes available.

Public Spaces and Communal Areas: The frequency of cleaning and sanitizing has been increased in all public spaces with an emphasis on frequent contact surfaces including, but not limited to, front desk check-in counters, door handles, public bathrooms, room keys, gym equipment, dining surfaces, and seating areas.

Guest Rooms: Industry-leading cleaning and sanitizing protocols are used to clean guest rooms, with attention paid to high-touch items, including toilet seats and handles, door and furniture handles, water faucet handles, nightstands, light switches, temperature control panels, alarm clocks, luggage racks, and flooring. All bed linen and laundry will be changed daily and continue to be washed at a high temperature and in accordance with CDC guidelines.

Back of House: In the spaces where associates work “behind the scenes,” there is an increased frequency of cleaning with a focus on high-touch areas.

Shared Equipment: Shared tools and equipment will be sanitized before, during, and after each shift or anytime the equipment is transferred to a new employee. This includes phones, radios, computers, and other communication devices, payment terminals, kitchen implements, engineering tools, keys, timeclocks, and all other direct contact items used throughout Alisal Ranch.

Food & Beverage: Minimal items will be placed on guest tables to allow for effective disinfection between each guest, including condiments, silverware, glassware, napkins, etc.

Responding to Potential Illnesses
The General Manager, Director of Housekeeping, and the Safety & Security Manager are to be notified immediately of ANY sick guest(s). If the manager is not available, then any Front Desk personnel should be informed.
