Extending its support to India’s healthcare system and in interest of the public, OYO rolled out a feature on the OYO app, where users can now book their quarantine stay through the app itself.

In 2020 OYO Care tied up with several hospitals, ministries and government authorities to offer quarantine facilities for stranded tourists, frontliners, the medical community and asymptomatic patients. Considering the rising cases in the second wave of COVID-19, OYO reinitiate the OYO Care initiative to further support the quarantine requirements of COVID-19 positive patients as well.

OYO’s presence across India enables us to support the healthcare system that has been stretched for space during such times. We are dedicating select properties across cities as quarantine and isolation facilities for COVID-19 positive patients.

We also empathize with and stand ready to welcome frontline workers such as health care professionals, law enforcement authorities, essential workers or even a relative of a COVID-19 patient who needs safe and affordable accommodation options near a hospital. We hope our initiatives, in a small but meaningful way, provide refuge to everyone who needs it right now. We are extremely grateful to our asset partners who have joined hands with us to cater to the growing needs of healthcare and the frontline workforce during these distressing times.

OYO Care have tied up with 30+ hospitals, several government authorities and private sector companies to open its doors to dedicated properties across cities as self-isolation and quarantine centres for health care professionals, frontline workers and offer a safe stay for relatives of COVID-19 positive patients near hospitals and several others. Currently, it is also serving the accommodation requirements for the employees of local government bodies. We also stand ready to provide accommodation for post-travel isolation for tourists, and individuals travelling for emergencies, and other reasons.
