Canaston Oaks Covid-19 Re-opening Policy

At Canaston Oaks, we are continuously monitoring the development of the Welsh COVID-19 regulations. Our number one priority is the well-being, health and safety of our guests and team members.

In order to secure that, we have initiated procedures, and have plans and routines in place, so that both guests and team can feel safe when staying, working or visiting our accommodation or restaurant.

Our purpose at all times is to eliminate as far as possible the spread of COVID-19.

  • Our team members are trained to handle situations that may occur and we have confidence in their abilities.
  • Hygiene and cleanliness are our priority. We have strict hand hygiene policies for our team members before eating or preparing food and after using the bathroom. We also encourage guests to frequently wash their hands with soap and warm water.

Staff Social Distancing

It is extremely important our staff keep themselves and others safe. Staff will keep the recommended distance away from each other at all times, as people may be infected and not showing symptoms yet. We will ensure all of our team understand what is expected of them and make sure their working area is reviewed and rearranged if necessary to allow this to happen safely.

We will ensure the recommended distance rule applies at all times, in the kitchen, front of house, lunch and break times and monitor compliance.
