Transcript for What hotels and rental homes are doing to keep guests safe
We do want to turn to travel picking up again. A look at what hotels are doing to keep visitors safe. Some using high-tech sprayers and robots but the CDC says even with that you should still take your own precautions. Let's go back to gio Benitez with more. Good morning. Reporter: Hey, whit. Good morning again. Yeah, even in hotels right now even staying in a hotel. That looks very, very different than before the pandemic so this morning with so many changes, we ask how do we stay safe? As thousands hit the road for the fourth of July weekend, many wondering this morning what are hotels and companies like airbnb doing to keep us safe? We are redefining our cleaning and safety standards. Reporter: Hotel giant Marriott releasing this video promoting cleaning procedures. A lot of the same technology we've seen on airplane, those electrostatic sprayers, disinfecting hotel rooms and the buttons on the elevators. When you're in the lobby at the pool in a workout room or hallways anywhere the public is gathering or passing each other you will see a lot more cleaning. People physically cleaning more than they have in the past. Reporter: The Beverly Hilton in Los Angeles using a uv light robot which the manufacturer says reaches a 99.9% level of disinfection but even with these measures, the CDC suggesting you take matters into your own hands, avoid the check-in desk altogether and get a mobile key on your phone. Minimize use of public areas like pool, game rooms or fitness centers and consider taking the stairs instead of the elevator. What they should look for, the hotel cleans the frequently touched surfaces often and that they require everyone to wear a face mask when not in their hotel room. Reporter: What about short-term rentals like airbnb? Those are homes owned by private individuals. There is no inspection by the hosts have to agree to airbnb's cleaning protocol. What we require is those hosts who are participating in the cleaning protocol to attest that they are, in fact, applying it. Reporter: The company saying there's a 24-hour hotline customers can call if the room isn't clean. And many of those airbnb bookings are actually for rural areas like the adirondacks here in New York and the blue ridge mountains in the southeast. A lot of people going outdoors this summer and, T.J., they are doing it right here in America. All right. Gio, thank you so much.
