The story here on the Ideal site has details.Here is a Google translation of the article:

El Ejido puts the AR Almerimar hotel at the disposal of Health

The municipality is ahead of health needs and popone this facility in case it is needed in the crisis

The Poniente Hospital still has the capacity to absorb patients both from emergencies and those infected by the coronavirus, although the El Ejido City Council has already moved forward and has made a series of spaces available to the Health Department of the Board and the Ministry of Health in case it is necessary to expand the capacity of the Hospital de Poniente, located in the municipal area of ​​El Ejido.

Although it is true that part of its staff is in quarantine, due to contact with positive cases, the reality is that the Hospital de Poniente still has the capacity to continue covering the health demand in the region. However, the El Ejido City Council has made several facilities available to the Health Service to alleviate the predictable collapse of the Hospital if necessary, if the coronavirus continues to grow exponentially, among which are the Santa María Pavilion del Águila and the Hotel AR Almerimar.

It was the director of the Hotel AR Almerimar himself who contacted the City Council to offer his facilities, not only thinking that it would become a sanitary resource, but also if they needed kitchens or facilities to meet essential needs. It should be noted that this hotel is closed seasonally and that it used to open its doors every year for Easter, to remain open until after summer.

for the patient, and those that affect common areas will be carried out by the building's
cleaning services.
