We, at ARIVA Academy, stands firm with our mission of producing fun-filled and high-quality learning events. We added the Safety and Health Factors, amidst the COVID-19 contagion, which is at large worldwide. The safety and well-being of our Participants, Guests, Speakers, and our ARIVA Team are our primordial and non-negotiable priorities. For months now, we have been vigilant against the threat of COVID-19. In view of this dire medical emergency, authorities campaigned for increased public awareness. ARIVA made better its precautionary measures and put them in place to cover our Learning Events. To ensure this, ARIVA Academy has stepped up measures to protect everyone’s safety by introducing new measures and adequate sanitation techniques.
We are closely working with our Venue partners, which also observe their own precautionary measures. They have implemented additional hygiene procedures throughout all facilities in the hotel including increased cleaning and disinfection routines. All Hotel staff at entry and exit points, Food and Beverage, as well as offices in both front and back-of-the-house is well equipped with sanitizers, disinfectants, and surgical masks for sanitation measures. And as mandated by the Department of Health (DOH) Memorandum No.2020-0057, all guests entering private premises are required to undertake a temperature check. Guests whose body temperature is at or above 38°C, and with history of travel from China, Hong Kong and Macau, shall be directed to an holding area outside the hotel for consultation with the hotel medical doctor and may be taken to the nearest hospital. Likewise, asymptomatic guests with similar travel history will be directed to a separate holding area for consultation with the hotel medical doctor for clearance. In case of unusual emergency, our Venue partners are compliant to having 24/7 medical clinics with licensed nurse and physician on stand-by. For further information, hotel protocols and circulars in relation to COVID-19 issued by the DOH, you may be view www.doh.gov.ph/2019-nCov/interim-guidelines.
