Hotels ‘open for recovery’ - The Evesham Observer

Hotels ‘open for recovery’

Evesham Editorial 7th Apr, 2020   0

HOTELS across the county have offered to house hundreds of recovering patients during the coronavirus pandemic.

Last Monday Worcestershire County Council launched an appeal, urging local hotel bosses to get in touch if they had spare rooms available.

Our newspapers featured the drive on our Worcestershire websites and the authority was able to book a staggering 300 hotel rooms in 48 hours.

The rooms will be used as a safe space for those recovering and also eases pressure on the NHS.

Councillor Karen May, the County’s cabinet member with responsibility for transformation and commissioning, said:

“It’s amazing to see the wonderful people of Worcestershire have come together to help us book the rooms we so desperately needed.

“This is just one of many great examples of community spirit that has been shown by everyone in recent weeks.”
