Crown Spa Physical Distancing and Hygiene Program
The health and safety of our employees and patrons is our priority. With this in mind, Crown has developed a number of extraordinary measures to support a COVID-19 safe workplace and environment for employees and patrons:
Physical distancing: Restaurant tables, bars and other physical layouts (including workspaces) are arranged to ensure appropriate distancing. All hotels and food and beverage outlets comply with government mandated occupancy limits. Queuing areas are clearly marked for appropriate physical distancing.
Face mask usage: All guests, patrons and employees of Crown are required to wear a fitted face mask in line with Victorian government mandates while on property, unless a medical exemption applies
Cleaning Protocols: Enhanced cleaning protocols have been implemented at increased frequencies across all areas of the entertainment complex with an emphasis on high contact surfaces and frequently used areas, using products and processes in accordance with SafeWork Australia guidelines.
Hand Sanitisation: Crown recognises that frequent hand hygiene is one of the most effective ways to prevent infection with COVID-19. Employees will be educated as to appropriate hand hygiene practices Hand sanitiser dispensers are placed at key patron and employee entrances, carparks and high contact areas. It is mandatory for patrons to use hand sanitiser upon entry to restaurants and when approaching hotel reception counters.
Personal Protective Equipment (PPE): PPE, including masks, shields and gloves will be made available to staff and shall be worn according to specific roles and job requirements. The wearing of face masks at work is voluntary, unless made mandatory in line with the Victorian Government directions. Training on the use and disposal of PPE will be provided.
