Quore Helps Hotel Properties Transition to Isolation Wards for Covid-19 Patient Overflow

Operations Management Platform Enables Hotels to Support Health and Safety Compliance for Those Looking to Help Communities in Need

USA, Franklin, Tennessee. April 09, 2020

Quore, the leading provider of workflow management and productivity tools for hotels, today announced its Quore Aid Program for any hotel converting its property into a COVID-19 isolation ward or temporary medical facility. Quore has adapted its suite of solutions to allow for adherence to local and national healthcare guidelines to support housing facilities as they determine the right precautions each hotel isolation ward should follow in order to ensure the health and safety of staff, medical professionals and guests.

Individual states, counties and municipalities are actively seeking properties that are largely vacant due to growing Stay-At-Home mandates to serve as COVID-19 isolation wards. The goal is to relieve the pressure on hospitals, allowing them to focus treatment on the sickest of patients, and non-severe cases can be moved to an isolation ward. Hotels are prime real estate for these facilities, as most business and vacation travel has been cancelled.

Hotel isolation wards may be used for various scenarios, including for recovering patients, individuals exposed to the virus that may or may not show symptoms, moderately ill people awaiting test results, and individuals that may not be able to self-isolate in a home due to high-risk family members or personal homelessness.

"We want to support communities across the country in their efforts to stop the spread of COVID-19, and enable our hotel customers to contribute in a safe and secure way," said Scott Schaedle, Founder and CEO of Quore. "Not only does our platform help properties optimize operations, but it enables staff and guests to communicate with little-to-no physical interaction. We're providing a baseline of health and safety precautions each property or location needs to update to be in compliance with local and national guidelines, so each property can quickly adapt to new mandates and remain focused on its new role in ending this pandemic."

The Quore platform enables hotel management and staff to limit face-to-face interactions, implement mobile communications with guests, and access modifiable templates that guide staff through recommended and/or mandated procedures that are updated in real time. These include isolation room set up and turnover, hand and hygiene protocol, trash collection, sanitation requirements, signage placement and other actions to ensure the highest level of health and safety compliance throughout the property.

Hotel Law: Protecting Guest Privacy

Every business is obligated to protect their customers from identity theft but unfortunately, data breaches have become all too common. In an effort to protect a guest's right to privacy and to safeguard their personal data, the European Union passed a General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) that could hold hotels legally liable for any breaches that expose a customer's sensitive personal information. Though the GDPR only pertains to EU citizens' data, any international business that mishandles their data can be legally responsible. Another legal issue of concern is the fight involving hotel "resort fees." Several states attorney generals have recently filed suit against two major hotel chains in an effort to litigate this practice. Their suit alleges that these companies are "engaged in deceptive and misleading pricing practices and their failure to disclose fees is in violation of consumer protection laws." The suit seeks to force the hotel chains to advertise the true price of their hotel rooms. There are several other legal issues that the industry is being forced to address. Sexual harassment prevention in the workplace is still top of mind for hotel employers-particularly in New York and California, which now statutorily require harassment training. Hotels and motels in California will also soon be required to train all their employees on human trafficking awareness. Immigration issues are also of major concern to hotel employers, especially in the midst of a severe labor shortage. The government is issuing fewer H2B visas for low-skilled workers, as well as J-1 visas for temporary workers. Though there is little hope for any comprehensive immigration reform, hotel lobbying groups are actively seeking legal remedies to alleviate this problem. These are just a few of the critical issues that the December issue of the Hotel Business Review will examine in the area of hotel law.
