The Grapevine Convention & Visitors Bureau is championing the process to allow all Grapevine Hotel partners to pursue the Global Biorisk Advisory Council (GBAC) STAR accreditation. GBAC STAR is the gold standard of safe facilities, providing third-party validation that ensures facilities implement strict protocols for biorisk situations. GBAC STAR is an outbreak prevention, response and recovery accreditation. The program establishes requirements to assist facilities with work practices, protocols, procedures, and systems to control risks associated with infectious agents, such as SARS-CoV-2, the virus responsible for COVID-19.
Grapevine is committed to being a GBAC STAR Community and the latest facilities to receive accreditation are Gaylord Texan Resort, Hilton DFW Lakes, Grand Hyatt, Hyatt Regency, Grapevine Convention & Visitors Bureau World Headquarters Building and the Historic Palace Theatre.
