Reason #6: The hotels will otherwise be empty anyway
As we all know, tourism is dead for the time being. Hotels are facing dark times and their staff are worried about their livelihoods as
occupancy drops to zero or near zero. So, a contract with the government to provide bulk Stay-Home Notice accommodation

in addition to the recently announced Resilience Package.
According to this list, Far East H trust has 10 of it's hotel/service apt in the list.. Huat har!
--- The above is persuading returnees to self-isolate in the hotels & they have to bear their own room costs, etc. Is that right?
I thought govt whisks them from airport straight to hotel & govt bears the cost of room, etc. Are there 2 different schemes?
