The COVID-19 (Coronavirus) outbreak has caused entire countries to shut down, forcing millions of people to stay inside their homes for long periods of time, and causing many people to lose their jobs.
Schools have closed in many states, meaning parents must keep them at home or find alternative, safe, childcare options. Of course, the school year hasn’t finished, so there’s a feeling that parents must continue their children’s education, even if they have to work.
Healthcare workers are suffering from a shortage of essential protective equipment, meaning they’re at huge risk of catching the virus. There’s also a shortage of tests, so it’s impossible to know the true scale of the outbreak.
On a global level, shares have been hit dramatically. The BBC reported that the Dow Jones Industrial Average and the FTSE have seen their biggest one day declines since 1987, though banks in several countries have cut interest rates to try and combat the negative impact this will have.
For those who are social distancing or self isolating, the worry of having enough food and essential supplies means that people have panic-bought so many groceries that others have been left with nothing.
Travel bans have been put in place in over 100 countries in an attempt to stop further spread of the virus, forcing vacations to be cancelled and leaving thousands of passengers stranded abroad, trying to get home. Many families have been forced apart for fear of the virus being spread to elderly or vulnerable members. In the UK, thousands missed out on celebrations on Mother’s Day, as advised by the government, to prevent spreading the virus.
It’s a priority for us here at Ready Stays in Tampa Bay to offer help and support to those that need it. Already we’ve opened our doors to individuals fleeing from New York who are trying to escape the increasingly serious situation there.
We have the capacity to work with families, professionals and anyone in need of temporary housing during this global crisis, to give you the time and space you need to plan for the future, both in the long and short-term. You’ll have everything you need to keep up to date with the situation as it develops, and plan accordingly.
We won’t lock you into a long-term contract, so you can stay on a month-to-month basis. We’ll also offer a minimum notice to vacate period, so you can rest safe in the knowledge your stay will remain flexible should you need to change your plans quickly to the changing tides of this pandemic. We know the last thing you need is to have to worry about having somewhere to stay, or being evicted from your home, during a crisis such as this one.
We perform a full, top to bottom, white glove cleaning service as standard for all new guests staying at one of our apartments here in Tampa, no matter the property or length of stay. We’re also taking extra precautions, increasing our cleaning measures and using strong cleaning agents to eliminate any possibility of the spread of germs and the coronavirus.
All of our temporary housing properties have their own air conditioning and ventilation systems, so there’s no risk of anything being spread or passed between other rentals or shared, common areas. So, if you need to stay in isolation or quarantine, you can do so without the worry of any airborne particulates entering – or leaving – through the centralized HVAC ducts.
Effective immediately, we are offering a reduced price for full housekeeping services for all our guests staying at Ready Stay properties. Take a look at our available properties and know that you will be well looked after in our short-term rentals. We have immediate availability, and your temporary housing will be spotlessly clean, comfortable, and provide everything you need to ride out this pandemic. Together, we will get through this.
