HRCC Receives Cleanliness Award

HAMPTON-The Hampton Roads Convention Center, which is currently being used as a COVID-19 vaccination site, has been honored with the Global Biorisk Advisory Council (GBAC) STAR accreditation for its implementation of the most stringent protocols for cleaning, disinfection, and infectious disease prevention. GBAC is a division ISSA, The Worldwide Cleaning Industry Association.

“The safety of our guests and employees is our top priority,” said Eric Nealy, general manager of the convention center. “We have established key best practices to ensure a clean, healthy, and safe environment for all our clients, guests, and visitors.”

The GBAC STAR distinction means that Hampton Roads Convention Center has the best practices in place to prepare for, respond to, and recover from outbreaks and pandemics. To be accredited, the convention center had to demonstrate compliance with GBAC STAR’s 20 core elements, which range from standard operating procedures and risk assessment strategies to personal protection equipment and emergency preparedness and response measures.
