LONE STAR VALET & STAR PARKING SYSTEMS: COVID-19 OPERATIONAL HEALTH & SAFETY GUIDELINES
We understand the concerns regarding COVID-19, and we can help. We are taking COVID-19 very seriously in our daily operations and have made significant changes to the way we do business to ensure the safety of our team and your guests:
Hand sanitizer and disinfectant products are available for all operations. All team members use hand sanitizer before and after the handling of keys, luggage, and other items.
Disinfecting facilities, equipment, and vehicles – Counters, valet stands, keyboards, phones, and other high traffic areas or objects are cleaned regularly with disinfectant wipes.
Social distancing – Where possible, our teams are maintaining proper distance between each other and guests, following the 6-foot social distancing recommendations
No in-person team meetings
Staggered employee start times
Remote office staff work flows
Educating and training for our team about COVID-19 operating procedures
Lining steering wheels when appropriate
PPEfor parking attendants and valets including masks and gloves
When valeting a customer’s vehicle, valets will clean all vehicle touch points with disinfecting wipes, including key fobs, steering wheels, door handles (inside and out) and gear shifts
In our shuttle operations, we implement social distancing practices by transporting a smaller group of guests (half capacity) and/or making more trips for larger groups. We frequently wipe down seats and other commonly touched areas with disinfecting wipes and carry hand sanitizer in each vehicle.
In our healthcare locations, we are providing golf cart transportation for disabled or handicapped patients and assisting with car unloading while wearing PPE masks and gloves.
