Some People Don’t Want to Pay Hotel Quarantine

Director of Health Services, Doctor Marvin Manzanero says that repatriated persons are not a cause for concern once due process is followed. What is worrisome, says Doctor Manzanero, are those persons who do not want to come home because they don’t want to pay the hotel bill for mandatory quarantine.

“If they follow the due process that are in place for the flights that are coming as scheduled, there should not be a cause for concern. I think we need to especially make sure that people are coming back as quickly as they can, especially when you see the growing numbers in Mexico, Guatemala, [and] the U.S.  I understand that some people don’t want to come because of the issue of having to pay hotel quarantine, but I would wish that people see it from the point of view that it is a protection not only for the community, but your immediate family and friends that you’d interact with. So I think you should appreciate that that’s a further layer that you are able to offer your family members then I think you should take it from that angle.”
