This year we will host both the Pearls IX and OMS Review Course in Person. The Marriott hosting hotels are committed to providing you with a safe environment that aligns with expert protocols for working to defeat COVID-19 consisting of in-house and outside experts in food and water safety, hygiene and infection prevention, and hotel operations. The Marriott Cleanliness Council is redefining their cleaning and safety standards. They will actively monitor and evolve their solutions to ensure a continued focus on the health and safety of their guests and associates. This includes wearing face coverings, contactless services, rigorous cleaning and hospital grade disinfectants, enhanced electrostatic sprayers to sanitize surfaces, social distancing signs, hand sanitizing stations, F&B inspections and enhancing sanitation guidelines and training videos for their associates, and modifying its operational practices for in-room dining and designing new approaches to buffets.
