COVID-19 Update | Stabilization Phase

Posted on May 01, 2020 2 min read

Utah Leads Together 2.0, Summit County Health Order, and Sea to Ski

As we move through these evolving circumstances, treating your home like our own is still at the core of everything we do. The health and safety of our clients and employees remain our top priority, always.

Effective today (May 1, 2020), we begin to navigate the Utah Leads Together 2.0 plan Stabilization Phase (Orange) of the COVID-19 emergency, in alignment with the newest Joint Public Health Order 2020-05. Summit County has lifted the stay-at-home order and is allowing business and social activity to gradually reopen under specific protocols that continue to protect the public. To ensure that we continue to provide the safest property management experience, we are updating our protocols in compliance.

Sea to Ski has been very fortunate to remain healthy throughout the pandemic and did not furlough or layoff any employees, including housekeeping. Our staff has been adaptive to the changing protocols and we do not anticipate much (if any) learning curve as we continue to adapt through the stabilization.

Sea to Ski continues to adhere to the CDC Guidelines for the General Public, with regard to strict hygiene and social distancing measures, as well as Mandatory Business Practices outlined in the Joint Public Health Order 2020-05.

Specifically, at this time, property managers and similar services are encouraged to proceed with operations under these guidelines:

  • Strict hygiene
  • Inquire if homes have symptomatic individuals and exercise caution
  • Monitor symptoms of employees
  • Wash or sanitize hands before and after leaving each home
  • Remove shoes prior to entering each home
  • Disinfect tools after each site
  • Share estimates, invoices, and other documentation electronically

In accordance, Sea to Ski will continue to require employees to use Personal Protective Equipment (PPE), including:

  • Masks
  • Gloves
  • Hand soap
  • Hand sanitizer
  • EPA-approved surface disinfectant
  • Sanitizing wipes
  • Booties
  • Plexiglass [Our office is already equipped with a plexiglass partition, between the front entrance and the reception area.]

We remain committed to providing you with customized care for your home.

  • Personal Home Managers will continue to utilize video conferencing technology to enhance communication with homeowners, such as FaceTime, Zoom, etc.
  • Vendors will be scheduled expediently for projects that need to be completed, to minimize interactions once an owner arrives.
  • Personal Home Managers and Housekeeping staff will work together to perform an extra pre-arrival disinfectant wipe-down of light switches, counters, door knobs, key pads, faucets, remotes, etc.
  • When possible, a 48-hour waiting period will follow an occupant’s departure from a home. Housekeeping staff will use disinfectants safely and correctly. Staff will wear masks or face coverings, and gloves when cleaning. Sea to Ski will also be exploring the opportunity for our Housekeeping staff to complete a cleaning and disinfecting for Coronavirus certification.

Although much remains uncertain, we look forward to progressing through these stabilization efforts and restoring the vibrant community that is Park City. We will continue to provide you with relevant updates, as necessary.

Staying ahead of COVID-19

While Sea to Ski still aims to maintain "business as usual," we have updated our operations to address the evolving crisis.
