The Guam Homeland Security/Office of Civil Defense's new contracts with Wyndham Garden Guam and Santa Fe Hotel for quarantine service cost $200,000 combined and will be paid with local funds.
Both hotels are being used as holding facilities for arriving passengers who are required to be placed in quarantine for 14 days as part of the measures to contain the spread of Covid-19.
The government is renting 98 rooms at Santa Fe Hotel at $99 a day, including meals and laundry service; and 144 rooms at Wyndham for $110 a day. Contracts with both hotels expire on Aug. 16 or on exhaustion of fund.
The government announced earlier that all individuals quarantined at the Pacific Star Resort & Spa were to be transferred to Santa Fe and Wyndham.
