The owner of Paradise Resort Gold Coast, Dr Jerry Schwartz, has recently mandated vaccination for his resort staff. He hopes to lead the way and warns that without vaccinated staff, the hotel industry will vanish.
Schwartz also owns hotels in Australia that are now used as quarantine services where staff have been required to be vaccinated to work there. Paradise Resort will be the first non-quarantine hotel in the group to mandate COVID vaccinations for staff.
Schwartz believes that having hotel staff across the country fully vaccinated will give the industry the best possible footing to recover.
Paradise Resort has been consistently rated one of Australia’s premier family resorts over the past decade, and Schwartz said that with so many unvaccinated children staying at the hotel it was essential for staff to be fully vaccinated.
