- Several hotels operating locally have decided to temporarily close their properties as a result of a number of global travel restrictions that have been instituted, due to the spread of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19).
- Among these are the Iberostar Rose Hall Beach and Grand Rose Hall in St James, which has closed from March 24 to April 30.
- “In light of the world health emergency caused by the spread of COVID-19 globally, we are following all current protocols and recommendations published by both the World Health Organization (WHO) and local authorities,” the hotel explained in a statement.
- “As a result, we are taking the following measures, with the health and safety of our guests and employees as our maximum priority. As of March 19, guests arriving at our hotel – Iberostar Rose Hall Beach – will be redirected to the Iberostar Selection Rose Hall Suites where they will be accommodated,” the hotel said.
