LAKE PLACID — Whiteface Lodge in Lake Placid has become Sharecare Health Security Verified with Forbes Travel Guide. The verification helps ensure that appropriate health safety procedures are in place.
Forbes Travel Guide’s website (www.forbestravelguide.com/verified) shows the Mirror Lake Inn Resort and Spa in Lake Placid is also Sharecare Health Security Verified.
This verification comes with an easily identifiable “seal of approval,” the Sharecare Verified with Forbes Travel Guide badge, based on a hotel’s compliance with expert-validated best practices that minimize the risk and impact of COVID-19 and potential future public health events.
“The Whiteface Lodge team works tirelessly to provide a best-in-class experience for guests, and that includes ensuring a safe environment,” said Joe Giannino, general manager of Whiteface Lodge. “Enhanced cleaning protocols and operational adjustments were activated quickly last year in response to the pandemic, and Forbes Travel Guide’s verification reflects the extent of our efforts to safeguard guests.”
Developed by Forbes Travel Guide and digital health industry leader Sharecare, the comprehensive verification covers more than 360 standards across health and hygiene protocols, cleaning products and procedures, ventilation, physical distancing, the guest experience, and health safety communication with guests and employees. Hotels are required to verify their health protocols on an ongoing basis to ensure continued compliance with up-to-date global health standards.
“The pandemic has made it clear that hotels and resorts must, first and foremost, assure guests of their safety,” said Filip Boyen, CEO of Forbes Travel Guide. “By becoming Verified, Whiteface Lodge has demonstrated its commitment to creating a culture of accountability and following global best practices to heighten health security, verified by a third party.”
