Marriott To Require Masks In Lobbies, Public Spaces

USA Today reports:

Marriott hotels will require guests to wear masks in lobbies and other public spaces starting July 27. The Bethesda, Maryland-based hotel giant — which has more than 7,300 hotels worldwide — has been requiring employees to wear masks for several months.

But in a video message released Monday, CEO Arne Sorenson said the mandate is being extended to guests.

“Health experts have made it clear that wearing face coverings in public spaces is one of the easiest steps that we can all take to protect one another and reduce the spread of COVID-19,” Sorenson said in the video, after removing his own cloth mask.
