On behalf of California’s more than 6,000 hotels and 235,000 hotel employees, the California Hotel and Lodging Association released this statement in response to Gov. Newsom’s advisory that travel be limited to essential needs and that returning residents and visitors from out-of-state self-quarantine for 14 days:
“Since the beginning of the pandemic, the priority of California hotels has been cleaning and safety protocols that protect the health of travelers and our employees,” said Lynn S. Mohrfeld, President and CEO of CHLA.
“We join Gov. Newsom in encouraging all segments of the lodging industry to abide by public health guidance to stop the spread of the coronavirus so we safely can bring our employees back to work and return visitors to California.”
