The African Regent Hotel is offering government its facility to be used as a quarantine centre as part of measures to contain the spread of the novel coronavirus.
According to management, the decision to make the facility a quarantine centre is to show solidarity and patriotism to Ghana in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic that has taken many lives across the globe.
“The request to accommodate the individuals is to show solidarity and patriotism to our dear nation in these trying times. But committed to ensuring a safe space for all guests while also providing needed support as we go through these challenges,” management noted.
There were calls by some individuals urging government to take over hotels and use them as isolation centres.
Government however heeded to the calls and put in place mandatory quarantine for all passengers who arrived from outside the country in the past two weeks.
These passengers were taken to the Airport View Hotel, La Palm Royal Beach Hotel and the Alisa Hotel to undergo a 14-day quarantine period before they’ll be cleared to go to their various homes if they don’t show any symptoms of COVID-19 and their test results come out as negative.
