From The Toronto Star:
A small Toronto-based hotel chain is also trying to spread the word that it wants to help health workers who need safe spaces. The Silver Group, has set aside three of its 16 hotels for the exclusive use of front-line health-care workers, who can stay for $60 a night, the lowest price the company can offer and still maintain staff to care for the guests, said vice-president Shivani Ruparell.
There are 285 rooms at the Bond Place Hotel near Yonge-Dundas Square and another 224 at the Hilton Garden Inn near the airport. The Silver Group is also offering 98 rooms at the Fairfield Inn and Suites in Kanata in the Ottawa area.
The hotels will place workers on floors based on their shifts so they aren’t waking one another up. Some floors are being dedicated for self-quarantine and there is a separate floor for workers who may be isolating because they have symptoms or have tested positive.
All the hotels have grab-and-go food service.
Health-care workers and first responders are already checking in to try and distance from their families, said vice-president of operations Melissa French.
