IMPORTANT OFFICIAL Self-Catering COVID Cleaning Protocols
Dear All
We trust that this email finds you well and gearing up as we move towards finally reopening.  We are working extensively with the South West Tourism Alliance and our Local Enterprise Partnership the Heart of the SW LEP in supporting a speedy recovery.  
We are pleased to provide you with a link to the Self-Catering COVID Cleaning Protocols. These were cleared yesterday and can now be published as widely as you like.
They are being included in the UKH Guidelines, will be part of the AA and VE COVID Certification schemes that will launch on the 18th June and have been produced in conjunction with the following Membership Associations.
  • PASC UK (Professional Association of Self-Catering UK)
  • ASSC (Association of Scottish Self-Catering)
  • WASCO (Welsh Association of Self-Catering Operators)
  • Tourism Alliance
  • Wales Tourism Alliance
  • Scottish Tourism Alliance
  • Premier Cottages
Our objectives remain six fold.
  • To provide robust protocols for the Self-catering sector free of any charge to all that want it
  • To reassure Guests that cleaning protocols for COVID are robust
  • To reassure Owners that cleaning protocols for COVID are robust
  • To reassure communities that when hospitality businesses are opening are aware of their responsibilities and will have the correct protocols in place.
  • To work collaboratively with everyone to ensure the highest standards in the short-term letting sector, in whatever form that takes. 
  • Finally, for the above to reassure HMG that this sector knows its responsibilities and is safe to open at the earliest opportunity. 
Please let us know if you have any questions and if you let us know if any other steps are required we would be very grateful.
