Self-Isolation Apartments

Self-isolation is now becoming a regular occurrence with travellers and the pubic around the world with the outbreak of COVID-19. Our team knows you may have to as well during your stay with us. This is why we have self-isolation apartments, to ensure your stay has as little disruption as possible.

What Are Self-Isolation Apartments?

Simply put, they are your standard serviced accommodation from TheSqua.re but they have a variety of options and extras to make the self-isolation process less stressful and put your well-being to the very forefront. These include the following three options:

Cleaning and Sanitisation Services

Our housekeeping team will use COSHH, Diesin Maxx Acid Cleaner Disinfectant and other medically approved products on the apartment. This is a longer clean than our standard procedure. This also covers hand sanitiser and gels

Grocery Pack

This will cover the 14 days required isolation. The essentials will all be included and it can be changed to suit all needs if our guest services team are given 24hrs notice before food collection.

Entertainment Package

We supply guests with a Google Chromecast to stream from their laptop to the TV. Boredom is no longer an issue when there are many hours of content waiting to be watched.

All of these are subject to availability and cost.

However, our self-isolation apartments do also come with the following amenities and services already provided for at no extra cost:

Intercom System

Ensures distance from others and stops further contamination.

High Spec Broadband

Working from the apartment is easy, fast and efficient.

Flexible Stay Policy

Bookings can be changed 24hrs in advance to a new date in 3 month’s time if needs be.

Why Should You Self-Isolate?

To stop the spread of the coronavirus, it is vital that anyone who displays symptoms (even mild ones like headaches or a running nose) stays indoors and doesn’t venture outside. If you or an employee shows signs, then self-isolation is the key to stop further contamination.

As the World Health Organisation states, “avoiding contact with others and visits to medical facilities will allow these facilities to operate more effectively and help protect you and others from possible COVID-19 and other viruses.” (World Trade Organisation, 2019)

Precautions to Take

*as of 17/03/2020

The NHS and the World Health Organisation have recommended the following precautions to contain the virus:

Our staff have been trained on the guidelines provided by the local authorities, the risks of the virus and ways to identify the symptoms.

Our staff and apartments will be equipped with hand sanitisers, and necessary sanitary products, subject to the availability of these supplies.

We now avoid shaking hands on “meet and greets”.

We have a solid business continuity plan so our staff can work remotely in case they have to self-isolate.
