For general workplace guidelines, please refer to COVID-19 Workplace Information. All businesses operating in Saskatchewan must be in compliance with these guidelines. The information below provides specific guidelines for hotel/motel operators.

  • Regular housekeeping services should not be provided to rooms where individuals are isolating. Advise staff to leave linens, toiletries, cleaning supplies (including garbage bags) and food/meals outside the door. Staff should not enter these rooms.
  • Staff should wear disposable gloves and wash their hands with soap and water or an alcohol-based hand sanitizer approved by Health Canada (DIN or NPN number) after handling soiled items from rooms (e.g. linens, tableware and garbage bags).
  • Clothing and fabric items should be washed and dried in mechanical laundry machines at the hottest settings possible.
  • Steam cleaning can be used for areas that may be contaminated, but cannot be laundered (e.g. armchairs).
  • In a commercial dishwasher, properly wash and sanitize any reusable glassware or dishes in rooms between guests. Or, consider providing disposable dishes and utensils in rooms.
  • If possible, isolate guests in rooms with an independent HVAC unit.
  • Guests who are in isolation must not enter common areas of the hotel.
  • After guests are done isolating in a room, staff should thoroughly clean and disinfect all surfaces that may be contaminated, including laundering all clothing and fabric items. Cleaning and sanitizing information is available at
