The Anassa Hotel in Paphos is suspending operations until further notice after 13 coronavirus cases were found among its staff members.
The hotel management announced on their Facebook page that the positive cases did not have any contacts with customers and that some of them were already in self-isolation in recent days.
The health ministry was alerted and the protocol activated immediately after the positive cases were detected, the statement says.
Moreover, the hotel management has informed the staff and the existing customers, as well as the people who were planning a stay at the hotel.
“We have tested 520 staff workers at the hotel throughout the last weeks,” the CEO of Thanos Hotels & Resorts group, of which Anassa Hotel is part of, Thanos Michaelides told the Cyprus Mail.
“Out of the 13 cases, five were already in self-isolation since last week. Also, I want to reassure everyone that the people who tested positive were working in positions that did not require any contact with the customers,” he said.
“I can also confirm that all existing hotel customers have already been informed and that the vast majority will leave in the next three days. We will not be accepting new bookings for the time being.”
