Updated 9/25/2020 9:35 AM

The Global Biorisk Advisory Council, a division of ISSA, has awarded GBAC STAR accreditation to 57 new facilities this week in recognition of their thorough approach to cleaning, disinfection, and infection prevention. New facilities earning the accreditation include Montreal-Trudeau International Airport; CenturyLink Field, home to the NFL's Seattle Seahawks; and Lincoln Financial Field, home to the NFL's Philadelphia Eagles; as well as additional Hyatt properties.

"Each week, we see more organizations achieve GBAC STAR accreditation and others commit to completing this process because they are dedicated to protecting their patrons and employees," said GBAC Executive Director Patricia Olinger. "While it's unclear when the COVID-19 pandemic will end, we are certain that accredited facilities have the highest regards for health and safety in this new normal along with a commitment to continuous improvement going forward."
