Lau Fong Chi, who heads the Public Relations Division of the Macao Government Tourism Office (MGTO) announced during Monday’s press conference that from Sunday (20 December) those required to undergo 14-day quarantine can opt to stay at a hotel of their choice – Sheraton Grand and the newly-completed Lisboeta, apart from the current six designated “quarantine hotels”.
However, while residents’ first-time stay at one of the government-designated hotels is free of charge, a stay at the Sheraton Grand or Lisboeta costs MOP 700 a day, including three meals.
Starting from 20 December, non-residents required to go into 14 days of quarantine upon arrival in Macao can no longer stay at one of the government-designated hotels but must stay at the Sheraton Grand or Lisboeta.
Lau also announced that the 144-room Royal Dragon Hotel in Zape has also been rebooked by the government as a designated hotel for quarantine in response to the rising number of people required to undergo medical observation, raising the number of such hotels in Macao to six.
