With the outbreak of Covid-19 these already stringent measures have been enhanced in accordance with the World Health Organization and local governments’ guidelines to adapt to the current global situation. Typical expanded measures include the testing of guests and crew, updated air filtration systems, social distancing throughout, the conversion of buffet-style dining venues, new medical facilities and staff training, and further cleaning and fogging measures.
