Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) Precautionary Measures
Last updated: 8 March 2021
Committed to our “We Love to Care” service philosophy and safeguard the health and safety of everyone at Hotel ICON, extensive hygiene measures have been implemented, such as UV light air purification system, Quantum-dot photocatalyst coating from airDefender™, negative-pressure rooms, HEPA air filter to supply hospital grade air quality, and more. Hotel ICON is the first hotel certified with IEQ (indoor Environment Quality) for all hotel guest areas. Hotel ICON has also become Sharecare Health Security VERIFIED™ with Forbes Travel Guide for more than 360 standards across health and hygiene protocols.
Installation of Thermal Scanner at Hotel Entrance
In view of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak, since 31 January 2020, all staff members and newly arrived guests are requested to measure their body temperature upon check-in via a thermal scanner placed near the entrance. The thermo-vision researcher camera is an accurate and intelligent infrared vision system used worldwide in a variety of industries – enabling the detection of real-time subtle temperature variations. This is an ideal choice for our hotel to ensure accurate non-contact temperature measurements get carried out smoothly and effectively. And the device is set to activate a warning lamp to alert our concierge staff during unmanned period, as an extra precautionary step.
