You will then only be required to sign the screening declaration form on arrival. We are required to take a copy of your id or passport – we prefer to take a photo with our work mobile number and the information is then saved in a passport secured e-file. Alternatively, you can e-mail us a copy of your id in advance.
We are required to take your temperature daily.
This will be done using an infrared temperature reader.
The guest should preferably handle their own luggage to move it into or out of, their own vehicle. If handled by staff, the luggage should be sprayed with disinfectant.
