What are we doing to minimise the risk?
PS Murray Princess is a COVID Clean Practicing Business which is a Quality Tourism Australia accreditation, and is also recognised by the World Travel & Tourism Council’s Safe Travels stamp.
We have always had stringent and rigorous hygiene standards, cleaning procedures and health and safety practices but during this time, we have stepped up our practices and procedures even further.
Our staff are all trained on appropriate hand hygiene and sanitising practices and we will continue to maintain these practices in accordance with the necessary State & Territory health protocols and ensure we maintain these to the highest standards.
All our operations have increased vessel, vehicle and room cleaning procedures and practices. Hard surfaces (such as tables, handrails, door handles, counters etc.) are cleaned more regularly to minimise any risk.
Where possible we have made additional hand sanitisers and cleaning stations available to our customers and employees and we have also placed hygiene communications from the relevant health authorities in our vessels, vehicles, accommodation, food venues, shop fronts, counters, terminals and offices.
In the unlikely event that a customer or staff member presents with symptoms, where possible we will supply them with a mask and follow the instructions and recommendations from the Australian Government Health Department.
We will continue to follow the advice and direction of the relevant health authorities and the Federal, State and Territory Governments when making decisions about our vessels, cruises, tours, accommodation, and operations.
What can you do to minimise the risk of COVID-19?
Practising good hand and sneeze/cough hygiene is the best way to minimise the risk from COVID-19. You should:
- Wear your mask at all times, except when eating and drinking on our vessels and coaches
- QR code check-in
- Wash your hands frequently with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, before and after eating, and after going to the toilet.
- Cover your cough and sneeze, dispose of tissues, and use alcohol-based hand sanitiser.
- If unwell, avoid contact with others. Consider deferring travel and seek healthcare advice.
- Exercise personal responsibility for social distancing measures.
