Grupo Marriot reported that it closed its branches in Sinaloa and advanced its employees three months of salary
Baja California Sur Governor Carlos Mendoza Davis reported on his Twitter account that all hotels in the country will be temporarily closed, by order of the Ministry of Health, after he ordered the closure of all Mexican beaches.
According to Ciro Gómez Leyva in the morning newscast, the Marriot Group reported in a statement that, as of today, April 1 and tentatively, until the 30th of the same month, it will keep its hotels in Sinaloa closed and indicated that it advanced to his staff three months salary.
Meanwhile, Monex analyst Brian Rodríguez noted that the Mexican Hotel Association reports the temporary closure of 153 such establishments.
He explained that according to the association, in recent weeks the beach hotel complexes have presented an occupancy of between 10 and 15 percent, approximately; however, the rest of the states have had close to 5 percent.
Rodríguez considered that for the future, this sector could be affected by the temporary closure of some complexes, as well as a drop in tourism worldwide, which could imply a reduction in job capacity.
The specialist pointed out that the impact on hotels will depend on the duration of the health contingency caused by COVID-19, the occupancy rate, the effect on their income and the liquidity of these businesses.
Manuel Tórruco, head of the Tourism Secretariat, regretted the situation the hotel industry is going through in the face of the coronavirus pandemic.
