Hygiene
There are hand disinfectant stations around VALO, one at VALO Work reception. We have bathrooms in all office rooms and in the quiet workspace as well as the casual workspace: please take advantage of the facilities and wash your hands regularly.

Masks
Please wear a face mask in all shared workspaces and public facilities.

Office Rooms
We recommend taking advantage of the VALO office rooms, which you can easily book and claim from our app. The office rooms are cleaned between each customer and daily. They have private bathrooms, kettles, tea and coffee. You can go straight to your office room from our lobby or the garage without any face-to-face service situations.

Safe distances
We follow the recommended safety distance of 1-2 meters between all visitors and employees. We ensure that the recommendation is followed by guiding our customers in service situations. Furniture such as chairs and table groups are laid out more loosely than usual in all public areas and meeting rooms.

Service situations
Our staff wears face masks in all of our public spaces except plexiglass-protected areas and kitchen areas. The counters at our receptions have plexiglass to protect our guests and staff. We prefer card payments and avoid receiving cash. Card payment terminals and other contact surfaces are disinfected more efficiently. Room keys will be disinfected when they are returned to reception. We guide our guests to take care of safety distances when dealing with the reception.

Staff instructions
We actively inform our staff of the latest recommendations and monitor that the guidelines are followed. Our staff invests in good hand hygiene accordance with the guidelines prepared by THL. We pay special attention to a high level of hygiene in all service situations. Hands are washed more often and hand gloves are used regularly during the shift. Disposable gloves are used in the kitchen for handling unpackaged food. We have placed safety queuing points on our premises with floor markings.

Enhanced cleaning
We have increased cleaning and hygiene measures at our hotel even further. All hotel rooms and public areas are thoroughly cleaned daily. Frequently touched surfaces such as door handles, elevator buttons, faucets, and sanitary facilities are cleaned several times a day with a disinfectant cleaner. The surfaces of tables and chairs are cleaned regularly after use.
