Safety & Hygiene Protocols

Safety and Hygiene Protocols

The health and safety of our event attendees, exhibitors, and sponsors remain the utmost concern and priority for the Connected Plant Conference. In an effort to maintain the health and well-being of all at our events, we are committed to following the guidelines put in place by the CDC and the U.S. Travel Association. We are currently in the planning stages and the team will be working closely with the Margaritaville, Lake Conroe and all of our event vendors to ensure the strictest safety protocols are in place to keep our attendees and partners safe. We recognize that the situation is ever-changing and that all events/venues are different, so we will be adapting our protocols constantly and updating our participants on specific safety measures along the way.

As part of Margaritaville, the Margaritaville Lake Resort at Lake Conroe has implemented a multi-pronged approach to meet the health and safety requirements.

All Margaritaville locations receive comprehensive health and sanitation protocols, including brand health training for all management and team members at the property. These brand standards were carefully developed based on guidance from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), World Health Organization (WHO), Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), the National Restaurant Association (NRA), and American Hotel and Lodging Association (AHLA).

Face Coverings:

Margaritaville has updated its mask guidance, consistent with CDC, AHLA and OSHA recommendations. Masks are no longer required, however remain optional for guests and team members.

Social Distancing:

Guests are encouraged to enjoy the outdoor spaces Margaritaville properties are known for, whether by the lake, ocean, poolside, or in the mountains. All properties have created additional outdoor seating in restaurant venues, indoor spaces and common areas have been reconfigured to support distancing with ease where possible.

Cleanliness & Food Safety:

Cleanliness is always top of mind for the Margaritaville team. All venues clean, disinfect, and sanitize using COVID-19 approved products. Surfaces in common areas are continually disinfected. Kitchens receive a daily deep cleaning. Soiled linens and towels are transported in sealed single-use plastic bags. All food and beverage self-service, grab-and-go, and buffet areas are monitored by team members to ensure a consistent sanitized environment.

Dedicated Health & Sanitation Leads:

Each Margaritaville property has a designated Health & Sanitation Lead, responsible for implementing and enforcing standards across all latitudes.

Commitment to our Team Members:

Team members have been provided with appropriate safety gear for their positions. Any team member showing symptoms of illness are sent home and welcomed back when it is safe for them to return as deemed by a medical professional.
