The company also advised that they would be implementing stringent safety procedures to help protect those with a greater risk of exposure to the virus while maintaining the health and safety of their staff.
These procedures include check-in and check-out being made without any contact, additional cleaning and disinfectant protocols, and 72-hours between the same rooms being used.
