(Chuck Muth) – The World Famous Historic Chicken Ranch brothel in Pahrump, Nevada has announced steps it’s taking to keep its workers and clients safe and healthy during the COVID-19 crisis.
“We’ve always maintained a clean and safe environment here at the Chicken Ranch and I believe our risk of coronavirus exposure is pretty low,” said General Manager Trudy Kevoian. “But in light of current circumstances we’ve expanded and enhanced our cleaning, sanitizing and disinfecting procedures.”
Kevoian said ranch staff are following National Institute of Health standard protocols for normal day-to-day operations, as well as the Coronavirus Guidelines for America recommendations issued by the White House.
“We are reminding everyone to wash their hands regularly and use hand sanitizer as needed,” Kevoian continued. “We’re also doing repeated cleanings of the front gate, handrails, all doors, the ATM machine, table tops, bar tops, chairs and restrooms with sanitizing wipes and spray disinfectants.”
The ranch is also banning smoking and vaping in public areas and encouraging “social distancing” by reducing the number of bar stools in the lounge area.
In addition, enhanced screening procedures to assess the health of all staff, customers and vendors have been put in place.
Anyone showing any signs of congestion, shortness of breath or other flu-like symptoms will have their temperature taken, and anyone above 99.5 will be asked to leave the premises until their health is back to normal.
“We are following all new developments and will adapt our practices as needed to provide the safe, high-standard level of service we are known for,” Kevoian concluded. “Take care, stay well and come visit when you can.”
