COVID-19 - Guests Guidelines


With scientists warning that the coronavirus COVID-19 won’t be disappearing anytime soon, it has become clear that we need to learn how to live with it. This includes while traveling. At misterb&b, we know how important travel and connection are for the global LGBTQ community. We also recognize how resilient LGBTQ travelers are. So how can we all travel safely with the virus still spreading throughout the world? After releasing our guidelines for hosts amid COVID-19, we present some recommendations for guests to help you adapt to this "new normal" and avoid potentially transmitting the virus to your host. Plenty of hand washing, respecting new house rules, and maintaining physical distancing are a given.



1 - Look for "COVID-19 fighters" when searching for a place


We have created a new badge to help travelers find listings whose hosts have agreed to follow our new Covid-19 cleaning protocol and to have their calendar blocked for 24 hours between 2 guests or to have their calendar blocked for 72 hours between 2 guests. These hosts offer you the greatest level of safety in regards to Covid-19.


  • No hand shaking, no hugging, no kissing upon arrival. We know it’s tough but it’s safer.
  • Ask your host if they provide hand soap, sanitizer and tissues. If not, bring with you.
  • If you experience the loss of taste or smell , feel unwell, have a fever, cough and difficulty breathing, seek medical attention and follow the directions of your local health authority. Don’t travel, cancel all your bookings immediately until you’re recovered. No penalties will apply we’ll just need a note from your doctor).



2 - Help hosts keep the virus away from their homes:


  • Ask them about local guidelines and recommendations regarding Covid-19.
  • Wear a mask/face covering in public places.
  • Avoid crowds.
  • Maintain physical distancing everywhere you go.
  • Avoid public transportation as much as you can. If not, maintain a 6-foot (1.5 to 2 m) distance from other passengers and avoid touching high-touch surfaces such as handrails.
  • Wash hands or use hand sanitizers as soon as possible after leaving.
  • Avoid car ride sharing. If that’s not possible, limit close contact and create space between others in the vehicle. Follow ride sharing companies guidelines.
  • Everytime you return home, wash your hands immediately.
  • If you plan to date / hook up either outside of the place or inside (if allowed by the host), then remember that the virus is spread through respiratory droplets that can be exchanged.


You will be asked to read these guidelines and accept to enforce them before finalizing your reservation. The host will be notified that you accepted to follow these recommendations.


Reminder for keeping hands clean:

  • Wash hands often with soap and water for 20 seconds (Sing “Happy birthday” twice in your head).
  • Always wash immediately after removing gloves
  • Hand sanitizer: If soap and water are not available and hands are not visibly dirty, use hand sanitizer with at least 70% alcohol. If hands are visibly dirty, wash with soap and water.
  • Additional times to clean hands include:
    • After blowing one’s nose, coughing, or sneezing
    • After using the restroom
    • Before eating or preparing food
    • After contact with animals or pets
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
