Current COVID-19 Status
We are so appreciative of our valued guests and wanted to take a moment to explain what you can expect, given the current situation with COVID-19.
We are continuing to follow the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), World Health Organization (WHO), and state/county health department recommendations regarding COVID-19, including guidelines for cleaning and sanitation. We are maintaining our enhanced cleaning processes and working with vendor and industry partners to ensure compliance with any changes in protocols.
The Pinellas County Board of County Commissioners has rescinded the mask mandate following Florida’s Governor’s Order. passed an emergency ordinance requiring that citizens wear face coverings in most indoor public places, and restaurants and bars to implement new safety and anti-crowding measures.
Masks are now optional for TradeWinds' employees. While no longer required for guests, we kindly ask that guests consider doing the same when indoors and where social distancing isn’t possible.
TradeWinds will also continue to enforce strict cleanliness protocols including the use of Electrostatic Spraying Technology which uses the highest classification of disinfectants and sprays entire areas including rooms, lobby, fitness centers, dining venues, etc. Hand sanitizer dispensers will also continue to be accessible at key guest and employee entrances.
Social distancing will also be encouraged for indoor settings, like the check-in process.
