Hotels in Los Angeles offer 10000 rooms as temporary shelter for COVID 19 patients

Published on : Wednesday, April 1, 2020

There are more than 115 Los Angeles County hotels have volunteered more than 10,000 guestrooms to the County Public Health Department as temporary shelter to support the COVID-19 response. The response represents approximately 15 percent of all Los Angeles hotel rooms.

 

Heather Rozman, executive director of the Hotel Association of Los Angeles said that their hotel community responses are just one more example of extraordinary men and women behind the hotel business. Hospitality is a people business and in a time like this, we’re going to step up and take care of people, it’s what we do best.

 

HALA and member hotels have been working with Mayor Eric Garcetti, city councilmembers, county supervisors and county officials to determine how hotel rooms can best be deployed. Priorities and processes continue to evolve for who would be housed in the hotels and how an individual’s health would be monitored while sheltering in a hotel.

 

He continues that their hotel rooms are available now and they know their public officials are working hard to assure the well beings of all Angelos and individuals who may need temporary shelter.

 

 

Unprecedented challenges require unprecedented action, and our hope is that by opening up thousands of hotel rooms, we can reduce the spread of this virus at a time Los Angeles needs hospitality the most.
