We take standards for hygiene and cleanliness very seriously and are taking additional steps to ensure the safety of our guests, staff and the broader USU community. Our hotels’ health and safety measures are designed to address a broad spectrum of viruses, including COVID-19, and include everything from handwashing hygiene and cleaning product specifications to guest room and common area cleaning procedures. We take direction from the Bear River Health Department, CDC guidelines, and USU prevention protocols found here

Staff Health, Safety and Knowledge

Hotel staff have been trained and educated on prevention through hygiene. They have and will be asked to stay home if they have any signs of illness.

Hand Hygiene

Proper and frequent handwashing is vital to help combat the spread of viruses. It’s important for their health and that of our guests.
