If you were wondering which services Canada’s quarantine hotels may end up offering, the federal government might have some answers.
Hotels must be located near one of the 4 Canadian airports currently accepting international flights.

Most importantly, the government is looking for accommodation close to the four airports that are still accepting international flights.
More specifically, it’s looking for facilities within 10 km of either Montréal-Trudeau International Airport, Toronto Pearson International Airport, Calgary International Airport, or Vancouver International Airport.
The location must also be able to provide “clear and congestion-free access to hotel room” as well as be “accessible to a tertiary care hospital facility.”
In addition, it must be able to provide “secured, controlled, and monitored entry and exit points,” as well as a 24/7 reception desk service.
Due to the nature of the program, the hotel needs “measures in place to monitor compliance with mandatory isolation requirements (e.g. traveller movement within hotel).”
It would also be required to provide laundry facilities, contactless meal services, TVs and radios and free wifi for guests quarantining.
This includes reporting the number of travellers daily, generating daily lists of who is checking in and out, and having the “capacity” to report non-compliant guests to the Public Health Agency of Canada (PHAC).
