What the Antlers at Vail is Doing to Contain COVID-19

Any employee who starts to feel sick or who has a fever is required to stay home.

Hand sanitizing gel is provided in common areas throughout the property for frequent guest and employee use.

As we have advised employees, we would also ask guests to please be sure to take good care of yourselves: get plenty of rest, drink lots of water, follow the advice of experts to wash your hands frequently with soap & water for 20+ seconds every time you wash.

Additional Antlers Housekeeping Sanitation Procedures

In addition to our usual meticulous cleaning standards, the following additional sanitation processes have been implemented.

In common areas, our Antlers at Vail housekeeping team is taking extra precautions to disinfect a minimum of three times daily frequently touched surfaces such as: door handles, key cards, elevator buttons, coffee machines, credit card machines, etc.

In condominium units, in addition to regular cleaning, daily cleaning includes disinfecting of frequently touched surfaces such as: door handles, appliance controls, faucets, thermostats, remote controls, and light switches. Antlers at Vail housekeeping staff wear disposable gloves for cleaning/disinfecting, and the gloves are changed between rooms.

*Since this video was produced, we have revised our protocol per guidance from the Colorado Department of Public Health & Environment for short-term rentals, and now ensure that condominiums are left vacant for 48 hours between stays.

What the State of Colorado is Doing to Contain COVID-19

The morning of March 10, Governor Polis declared a state of emergency for Colorado. While this may sound scary, it is actually really good news for our community and visitors. It proactively gives the state the ability to access funds and to put important prevention and containment measures into place. The state of Colorado has implemented emergency measures to contain the spread of the virus.

On March 15 the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment issued a recommendation that all visitors and residents of Eagle, Summit, Pitkin, and Gunnison counties minimize social contact.

On April 6 Eagle County published a Standing Public Health Order in order to slow the spread of the COVID-19 virus.

On April 27 Eagle County published an updated Standing Public Health Order in order to continue slowing the spread of the COVID-19 virus.

Beginning May 25th Eagle County has issued a new Standing Public Health order which sets forth Phase 2 (“Blue Square” of the Transition Trail Map1) of Eagle County’s protocol to further lift restrictions of previous health orders.
