TULSA, Okla. -

New Year’s Eve is just a day away, and the CDC wants to remind you about the importance of helping to stop the spread of COVID-19.

Staff members at the DoubleTree Hotel in downtown Tulsa said they're not expecting a large crowd for New Year’s Eve, but they are preparing by sanitizing rooms before guests arrive.

"After we do that, we go ahead and seal the room, so there is no one else that goes into the room prior to the guess,” Diclemente said.

Charles Diclemente the General Manager said since the pandemic they've had to operate differently.

The CDC has recommendations to help make sure you stay healthy from COVID-19 and other illnesses during New Year’s Eve celebrations.

The recommendations are to wear a mask, stay six-feet apart, avoid crowds and poorly ventilated indoor spaces, wash your hands, and get a flu shot as soon as possible.

"We are here to serve you and make sure you have a great experience," Diclemente said.

Diclemente said anyone who walks into the hotel must wear a mask and practice social distancing, which includes limiting the number of people on their elevators to only two or three people at a time.

"We are making sure everyone has a great experience, but you just have to be careful," Diclemente stated.
