Emerald Grande COVID-19 Update
Emerald Grande at HarborWalk Village COVID-19 Updates
Our highest priority is the safety, health and welfare of our Owners, Guests, and Associates.
We continue to closely monitor guidance and directives given by the Federal government, Governor DeSantis’ office, the Florida Department of Health (DOH), and the U.S. Center for Disease Control (CDC) as they pertain to COVID-19.
Along with implementing guidelines set-forth by the organizations mentioned above, we have also adjusted and elevated our day-to-day operations to ‘The Grande Standard’ in an effort to keep our Owners, Guests and Associates safe.
Associate Training & Screening
All Emerald Grande Associates are required to attend a COVID-19 sanitation and safety training. Upon daily arrival to work, all Associates are screened for temperature and symptoms. Associates with a temperature of 100.4 degrees or higher are immediately sent home.
Updated Policies & Procedures
We are committed to providing exemplary guest service and memorable experiences; and over the last few weeks we have implemented a comprehensive cleaning plan and social distancing protocols throughout the property.

To ensure that our Associates have ample time to clean and sanitize units between guest occupancy, we will not be accepting early check-ins or allowing late check-outs at this time. Check-In begins at 4:00 PM and Check-Out is at 10:00 AM.
Upon arrival, the Emerald Grande bell staff will greet Guests and assist with unloading luggage. Bellmen will not be opening car doors and touching door handles at this time. Guest luggage will be sanitized prior to delivery to the Guest unit and bell carts will be sanitized after each Guest is assisted.
Luggage will be delivered to the door of the unit. Bellmen will not enter units.
