What We Know

With the World Health Organization announcing that the Coronavirus is a public health emergency, the American Hotel & Lodging Association is sharing the most updated facts and resources with you to inform both your employees and your guests.

Hotels already follow strict guidelines and protocols designed to help prevent spread of diseases from the flu to less common illnesses, and AHLA will continue to monitor the latest developments tied to this virus issued by government and health officials.

In these kinds of evolving cases, it is imperative that we stay informed, be vigilant, and adhere to official guidelines. To that end, we encourage our members and guests to get the latest information from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) webpage. In addition, we urge all individuals and families particularly traveling internationally to China to heed the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) guidelines and recommendations for travelers.

AHLA has released a prevention & preparedness resource featuring relevant information from government and public health agencies, industry experts and more.
