Covid-19: Faro Council to provide accommodation for health professionals

Faro Council says it is in contact with hotels and local lodging establishments in the municipality to provide accommodation to health professionals who fear going home to rest and putting their family at risk.

The council is appealing to these establishments to provide rooms so that doctors, nurses and health professionals have somewhere to rest without the fear of potentially infecting their loved ones.

Health professionals who are interested in the scheme are advised to contact their employers and highlight their needs.

“These are exceptional measures for exceptional times,” the council says in a statement to the press.
