Safety Guidelines and Resort Information

Hyatt Regency Chesapeake Bay is committed to caring for our guests, colleagues and customers, as your safety and well-being is always a top priority. We continue to closely monitor the COVID-19 situation, remain vigilant, follow procedures and protocols developed in consideration from various health organizations including the World Health Organization (WHO), U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), local authorities and other leading organizations and experts.

As part of Hyatt’s Global Care and Cleanliness Commitment below are some of the steps we are taking to ensure your health and well-being so you can enjoy your Chesapeake Experience: 

Hygiene and Safety 

  • Disinfecting of high-touch surfaces in areas with hospital-grade disinfectant such as lobbies, guestrooms, restaurants, meeting/event space recreational areas, public restrooms, elevator buttons and employee areas. Our onsite hygiene manager will be ensuring we are adhering to all operational guidelines and protocols.
  • For the safety of our guests and colleagues, we will not be entering guest rooms at any time during your stay. Simply dial ‘0’ for contactless room-delivery of any needs you may have.
  • The front drive will be designated as a guest drop off for unpacking vehicles and there will be bell service and sanitized bell carts available for guest’s use. The front drive will also be available for ADA assistance. We have convenient premium parking, steps away from the front doors with a fee associated.
  • Hand sanitizer stations will be placed in prominent areas throughout the hotel’s public spaces and entrances.
  • The updated arrival process will include a safety glass barrier at the front desk for a contact-free check in experience. You will also have the option of keyless guestroom entry by using your World of Hyatt app for World of Hyatt members.
  • Social distancing will be required in all public areas and meeting space. There will also be social distancing signage and floor decals displayed throughout the resort. Furniture in the lobby, pool deck, restaurants, and other relaxation areas will be rearranged to allow for proper distancing.
  • Face masks Guided by our purpose – to care for people so they can be their best – and through our Global Care & Cleanliness Commitment, Hyatt continues to review COVID-19 mandates and guidelines in consideration of federal and local mandates, guidance from health authorities, as well as medical expert and industry guidance. The health and wellbeing of guests and colleagues, who are the heart of our business, remains a top priority, as we continue to move through the phases of COVID-19 recovery. In light of relaxed CDC and AHLA face coverings guidance for vaccinated people, and after considerable review, we have determined the best the approach for our business and recovery is to update our face coverings mandate for fully vaccinated guests and colleagues at Hyatt hotels in the U.S. Effective immediately, Hyatt hotels in the U.S. will encourage guests to wear face coverings on property where social distancing is not feasible. However, aligned with the CDC’s new guidance, face coverings are no longer required indoors or outdoors for guests who are fully vaccinated. Face coverings are still required for non-vaccinated guests in all indoor public areas of hotels, as well as outdoors where social distancing is not feasible (with some limited exceptions). All hotel colleagues are still required to wear face masks indoors. We will ease face-coverings requirements for fully vaccinated colleagues working outside who are not in close contact with others.  As we navigate through the COVID-19 pandemic recovery together, Hyatt continues to lead with care, creativity and flexibility, offering guests peace of mind for when they’re ready to travel again. We are hopeful that this guidance, combined with vaccination distribution, will help boost people’s confidence around travel and will be an important step to getting the hospitality industry back on track. 
  • Each colleague will be trained and certified in updated processes for hygiene and cleanliness.


Pool Modification  

  • Pool chairs will be configured to ensure separation between groups of guests traveling together. If you need to move the pool chairs for any reason, we ask that you please ensure they remain at least 6 feet away from other parties.
