In the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, Jupiter Hotel, a Portland-based hotel company, recently announced the brand will be donating 81 hotel rooms to homeless people showing symptoms of COVID-19 to allow them to stay in quarantine. The donation of this space will assist in halting the spread of the virus, as many shelters are having trouble keeping occupants 6-feet apart.
“This story highlights exactly why small businesses are so important to the community and why they need our support, especially in times of need, they are our backbones. We have the ability to solve problems quickly and swiftly," said Nick Pearson, manager of the Jupiter Hotel on East Burnside Street.
