For an extra level of safety and security, there’s now the VERIFIED certification from Sharecare and Forbes Travel Guide.

Sharecare health security VERIFIED with Forbes Travel Guide is a comprehensive facility verification that addresses more than 360 global health security standards. Going far beyond basic facility standards, VERIFIED establishes a consistent global baseline for health security, covering health and hygiene protocols, cleaning products and procedures, ventilation, physical distancing, the guest experience, and health safety communication with guests and employees.

Additionally, participating hotels have the option to track daily employee virus screening results and provide relevant tools for guests and visitors including clinically validated health screeners and information and updates on that facility’s guidelines.

As a Sharecare health security VERIFIED hotel or resort, each property has earned the right to display the VERIFIED badge—an easily identifiable seal of approval that signals to guests and employees that the facility complies with public health protocols and best practices.

To date, more than 500 hotels, resorts, and venues in 50 countries have achieved health security verification from Sharecare and Forbes Travel Guide. In April Los Cabos, Mexico became the first VERIFIED destination, reflecting both the locally led effort to make health security verification a region-wide standard and the successful achievement of the VERIFIED badge by a majority of its properties.
