THUA THIEN-HUE – As part of the efforts of the local government to better control the coronavirus outbreak and help guests feel more comfortable, three establishments in the central province of Thua Thien-Hue have been given the green light to operate as paid quarantine centers for guests in need, according to information unveiled by the provincial Department of Tourism after the meeting by the Provincial Steering Committee for Covid-19 Epidemic Prevention yesterday, August 8.

Accordingly, the committee assigned the Department of Tourism with coordinating with the Department of Health to complete procedures so the hotels can immediately begin operations. The hotels comprise Sun and Sea Resort (near Thuan An beach, Phu Vang District), the Dien Bien Hotel (7 Dien Bien Phu Street, Hue City) and the Nursing Center for People with Merits (Lang Co Town).

The tariff ranges from VND1 to 1.8 million/room/night depending on the kind of room, while the F&B service is priced from VND250,000 to 500,000 a person. Meanwhile, quarantined guests can pay from VND500,000 to VND1 million/room/night to stay at the Dien Bien Hotel and from VND600,000 to VND1 million/room/night at the nursing center.

According to Nguyen Van Phuc, deputy director of the Thua Thien-Hue Tourism Department, part of Sun and Sea Resort had been used as a quarantine center before, so it was allowed to welcome one Dutch and two Vietnamese guests who needed to be quarantined some days ago. The two other hotels will welcome guests next weekend following final inspections.

Phuc said people in need can send requirement letters to the steering committee for approval. They must first get a negative result from the SARS-CoV-2 RT-PCR test, a  mandatory condition to be allowed to stay at the three hotels.

Meanwhile, service staff at these three hotels must also stay at the hotels and be assisted by medical staff to monitor their health.

At the meeting, Phan Ngoc Tho, Chairman of Thua Thien-Hue Provincial People’s Committee, emphasized the need for teamwork to fight the pandemic.

Tho suggested that all locals with smartphones must immediately install the Bluezone application to detect close contact with Covid-19-infected people.
