Many of the larger hotel chains have released the details about their new procedures, including Marriott International, Hyatt, and Hilton.
Hilton now has partnerships with the makers of Lysol as well as the Mayo Clinic, and have developed new procedures that include disinfecting things like door handles, light switches, remotes, and other high-touch areas.
