The first return to New York Governor Edward Cuomo’s call for unity was the Four Seasons Hotel NYC and opened its doors to health care workers.
The luxury hotel Four Seasons Hotel NYC, located in Manhattan, was the first hotel to respond to the New York Governor’s call on March 25 and open its doors. The Four Seasons Hotel NYC team and the hotel’s owner, Ty Warner, acted quickly and made the hotel safe for health workers. On Thursday April 2, the hotel welcomed its first medical staff guests from The New York State Nurses Association. The hotel has made 225 rooms available for medical experts and local authority employees, each with a minimum seven-night stay. The hotel will continue to increase its numbers to work safely and effectively, welcoming guests in small increments of 25 people a day until it reaches full capacity by the end of this week. “Our healthcare workers are working tirelessly on the front lines of this crisis,” said Mr Warner. “Many of those working in New York City have to travel long distances to and from their homes after putting in 18-hour days. They need a place close to work where they can rest and regenerate. I heard Governor Cuomo’s call to action during one of his press conferences, and there was no other option for us but do whatever we could to help” he said, announcing his full support for the coronavirus fight.
