Chicago will start renting more than 1,000 of its empty hotel rooms to house coronavirus patients or those awaiting test results

Chicago Deputy Mayor Samir Mayekar told the Tribune[8] that the city’s hotel plan is unique in that the hotels will not be overtaken by city officials, but rather staffed by hotel workers. Without government aid, the US hotel industry stands to eliminate four million jobs[9] in the coming weeks due to unprecedented occupancy declines.

“What we’re announcing today is a pioneering model for the country,” Mayekar said. “It’s one of the first situations in any major city where we’ve actually worked out an agreement with a hotel operator, owner and the workers to help staff this type of agreement.”
