Broadway hotel rooms in Macau for “code yellow” observation
Rooms at Broadway Macau, a Cotai hotel and casino, are made available at low prices starting October 5 (Tuesday) for people with a “yellow” Macau health code, which means they must undergo what the city calls self-care, due to the they may have been exposed to the virus that causes Covid-19, but have yet to show symptoms.
The news was given during a press briefing on Tuesday by the city’s Novel Coronavirus Response and Coordination Center. Broadway Macau is operated by Macau gaming licensee, Galaxy Entertainment Group Ltd, adjacent to the Galaxy Macau complex.
Broadway Macau can be used by people with code yellow who may not have other accommodation in Macau. But with the code yellow, they are not allowed to leave Macau for a certain period of time, nor to stay in other hotels in the city.
Those with a yellow code are identified as having been in the vicinity of confirmed cases of Covid-19. Code yellow people are those who have been found following such close contact, or who have already undergone a mandatory quarantine in Macau in another hotel, but whose health code has not yet returned to ” green”; that is, the safest level.
“Considering that some non-resident workers and tourists with a yellow health code have nowhere to stay after quarantine ends, and they are not accepted by any regular hotel… we finally have the support of Galaxy Entertainment Group to have its Broadway Macau hotel bookable “for these” self-care “people, Macau Government Tourism Board (MGTO) official Lau Fong Chi told Tuesday’s briefing.
According to Ms. Lau, approximately “200” rooms on Broadway Macau are used for this purpose. The property charges these guests a nightly rate of MOP 350 ($ 44) and does not provide in-room meals, the MGTO official noted. Galaxy Entertainment corporate documents described Broadway Macau as a 312-room hotel.
Guests with a yellow code will not be allowed to eat at restaurants on Broadway Macau, or have meals delivered to their rooms, as requested by GGRAsia at the property’s reservation desk.
