Palm Beach Country’s three luxury resorts – The Breakers, Eau Palm Beach Resort & Spa and Boca Raton Resort & Club each have joined with Discover The Palm Beaches (DTPB), the official tourism marketing organization for Palm Beach County, Fl., in the launch of, “The Palm Beaches Pledge,” to help prevent the spread of COVID-19.
As part of The Palm Beaches unified promise, hotels, attractions, restaurants, transportation services and a variety of other businesses vow to follow CDC and government guidelines, among taking other measures. Businesses will also continue encouraging guests to follow mandated mask, social distancing and sanitation guidelines.
Other Palm Beach County hotels and resorts participating include Crane’s Beach House Hotel & Luxury Villas in Delray Beach; Opal Grand Resort & Spa in Delray Beach; The Chesterfield in Palm Beach; Jupiter Beach Resort; The Colony on Palm Beach; The Brazilian Court on Palm Beach; and Palm Beach Marriott Singer Island Beach Resort & Spa.
This past June, The Palm Beaches became the first and only destination in Florida to commit to the Global Biorisk Advisory Council (GBAC) STAR accreditation program for its hospitality facilities. Established by ISSA, the worldwide cleaning industry association, the GBAC STAR program offers one of the highest standards of safety and sanitation for the global tourism and other industries – one that already has been adopted by major companies such as American Airlines and The Leading Hotels of the World.
“Our public pledge is a promise to The Palm Beaches community and visitors that our tourism businesses take this virus seriously and have established enhanced cleanliness guidelines for the betterment of all,” said Jorge Pesquera, president and CEO of DTPB.
“We’re confident we can work together to prevent the spread of COVID-19, while keeping our businesses open. However, it will take everyone – business owners, employees and guests – to heed guidelines from health and government officials, including wearing a mask, respecting physical distancing and frequently sanitizing one’s hands and places of business.”
