COVID-19

Tybee Beach Vacation Rentals remains diligent in keeping our guests, owners, and staff safe during this serious health concern. We are practicing social distancing in the office and requesting housekeeping and maintenance staff to wear personal protective gear while working in all units. In addition to the protective gear, all units are being disinfected and sanitized during cleaning and again during the inspections before and after each guest. Our laundry is brought to an offsite facility and washed and disinfected using the highest quality detergents and dried with an industrial dryer on the highest heat recommended. Our company would like to assure our guests and owners that we are using the appropriate measures to accomplish our goal to keep everyone safe and healthy against this virus. 

Although we are very diligent in our housekeeping procedures, the CDC recommends all households consider daily cleaning and disinfecting of "high-touch" surfaces in shared household areas (e.g., tables, hard-backed chairs, doorknobs, light switches, remotes, handles, desks, toilets, sinks). As has been recommended by many authorities, wash your hands often, avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth.
