Duabi: After months of COVID-related mayhem that’s touched every aspect of hotel industry, there’s finally a bright spot in the form of vaccines being approved and rolled out in UAE.
Fortune Group of Hotels becomes the first budget hotel chain in Dubai to get its staff members vaccinated against COVID19.
They target to vaccinate all their team members and dependents with first dose of vaccine within the month of January 2021. As the hotel staff are working 24/7 and are in direct contacts with travelers of many countries who get their RT PCR test done at the Dubai airports and then isolate themselves till their reports arrive. Despite following all guidelines, Hotel staff are still venerable to the transmission.
Hence, Fortune Group of Hotels (a leading budget chain in Dubai) organized a Vaccination Drive at newly opened Fortune Atrium Hotel – Bur Dubai on this morning of January 26, 2021. In the Phase 1 around 450 staff members were given the first dose of vaccine by DHA officials.
Mr. Praveen Shetty, (Chairman – Fortune Group of Hotels) on the occasion said “Even though me and my team leaders have already navigated a number of pandemic-related trials over the past year—from keeping employees safe and healthy. Getting a jab is yet another important step in fighting the virus”.
He added, “We pledge to save lives & livelihoods, It is our duty and responsibility to get a jab. As vaccination is important to break the chain of COVID-19 transmission and give protection to us and safety to our valued guests”.
Mr Shetty also highlighted that “It will not only save many lives but also help accelerate economic recovery. This will be a significant boon for tourism, which has been affected by border closures, travel restrictions and social distancing measures related to Covid-19”.
He specially thanked His Excellency Helal Saeed Al Marri, Director General of the Dubai Tourism, his team and the entire team of Dubai Health Authority for this kind and noble gesture of organizing the Vaccination drive without whom this would not be possible.
