Maine’s Inn by the Sea achieves health security verification from Sharecare and Forbes Travel Guide
Inn by the Sea, Maine. (March 24, 2021) — Inn by the Sea is proud to announce that it is has become Sharecare Health Security VERIFIED™ with Forbes Travel Guide. The comprehensive facility verification helps ensure that guests and travel planners can book with confidence at properties that have appropriate health safety procedures in place.
This verification comes with an easily identifiable “seal of approval” – the Sharecare VERIFIED™ with Forbes Travel Guide badge – based on a hotel’s compliance with expert-validated best practices that minimize the risk and impact of COVID-19 and potential future public health events.
“The Forbes verification goes a long way to ensure confidence that we are putting safety first, now and in the future for both our guests and team members,” said Inn by the Sea General Manager Michael Briggs. “While many of the recommended safety protocols were already in place at Inn by the Sea, the comprehensive certification process gives both visitor and staff the assurance of additional oversight and third-party verification.”
Developed by Forbes Travel Guide, the global authority on hospitality excellence, and digital health industry leader Sharecare, the comprehensive verification covers more than 360 standards across health and hygiene protocols, cleaning products and procedures, ventilation, physical distancing, the guest experience, and health safety communication with guests and employees. Hotels are required to verify their health protocols on an ongoing basis to ensure continued compliance with the most up-to-date global health standards.
“The pandemic has made it clear that hotels and resorts must, first and foremost, assure guests of their safety,” said Filip Boyen, CEO of Forbes Travel Guide. "By becoming VERIFIED™, Inn by the Sea has demonstrated its commitment to creating a culture of accountability and following global best practices to heighten health security, verified by a third party.”
