How to get a hazbin, or hotel, to help with Zika virus
- by admin
A couple in Georgia says they were able to find a hotel for the Zika virus in their area by paying a hotel bill for themselves.
The couple, who live in an area with heavy travel restrictions, said the Zika hotel they paid $5,000 for was ready to accept the couple.
The $5k in costs, they said, was more than they were going to use.
The money they spent, however, wasn’t enough to buy a hotel room in their own town.
The Georgia couple, Lauren and John Gorman, said they have paid for their own travel and medical costs, including a trip to Atlanta to see a specialist to check on their child.
They said they’ve seen how important a hotel can be in the recovery effort after the virus is confirmed and said they needed one as much as they needed a hotel.
“We had a friend who was infected with Zika, and we didn’t know how to get home to Atlanta,” Lauren Gorman said.
“It was very scary to be with someone who didn’t want to come home.”
The Gormans said they are now using their hotel as a travel hub for people who are having trouble getting home to their loved ones.
Lauren Gormans father, John Gorman, said his wife was staying at a hotel near their home in Atlanta.
“I didn’t really think about it, but we’re doing it,” he said.
“You know, it’s just the nature of the business, and you’re always trying to make money.
I mean, I think we did the right thing.”
The Georgia couple said they did not want to go to Atlanta and are considering other options.
They say they’re going to be staying in Atlanta with the couple and their son, now a toddler.
