More hotels will be contracted to house people in quarantine ahead of an expected jump in the number of Australians landing in Melbourne from next month.
The Age can reveal the Andrews government has asked the Hotel Grand Chancellor in Melbourne’s CBD, which has 160 rooms and operated as a quarantine hotel from July until the government stopped using it in October last year, to prepare to host quarantine guests again from next month.
A government spokeswoman confirmed details of the new hotels would be announced once plans to expand the international arrivals cap were finalised.
The Andrews government is recruiting hotels in addition to the 11 already operating with the number of Australians allowed to land in Melbourne set to climb next month.
