Health & Safety

Committed to delivering a clean and safe environment through health and safety protocols

One of our highest priorities is the health, safety, and security of our guests, team members, and business partners. COVID-19 has fundamentally changed the way we live, and we are adjusting our daily operations to fit within the new normal. In response to this, we and a team of experts have reviewed our existing health and safety processes and developed a new safety protocol. This in-depth cleanliness and disinfection protocol was created in partnership with SGS and is designed to ensure your safety and peace of mind from check-in to check-out. To learn more, watch our cleaning and safety protocol videos.

Safety Protocols update

Face Coverings and Personal Protective Equipment (PPE):

  • To help protect the health and safety of our guests, team members, and visitors, we require the use of face coverings in indoor public spaces (areas) in all hotels, pending local regulations*For those children under the age of two or anyone who has trouble breathing, is unconscious, incapacitated, or otherwise unable to remove the mask without assistance, face masks are not mandated. 
  • In hotels located in selected countries in Europe, Africa, the Middle East and Asia Pacific, team members are mandated to wear Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) where locally required.
Rapid onsite COVID-19 testing for event attendees:
To provide ease and confidence to return to face-to-face meetings and events, we have launched onsite, rapid COVID-19 antigen testing for attendees. To provide this service, we partner with leading healthcare providers to make the option available in 23 countries in Europe, the Middle East and Africa. For more details, please check the ‘Rapid COVID-19 testing’ tab below.
PCR testing 
To facilitate the return of travel, Radisson Hotels are able to direct guests to an easily accessible and affordable PCR testing location. In addition, selected hotels will offer PCR testing on location for groups or individuals, or self-sampling PCR tests via the Group’s specialized partners.

What are the new protocols?

A new 20-step protocol for hotels and 10-step protocol for meeting and event spaces is currently being introduced to our hotels. New cleaning and disinfection procedures, increased attention to safety in communal spaces, protective equipment, and updated training for team members are included in the new protocols. All our worldwide locations are being briefed on these protocols and strongly encouraged to implement them. These protocols describe specific processes and measures that are designed to make you feel confident when you visit us. Read the outlined steps below or watch the video with more details.
