SAFE, SECURE AND READY TO SERVE - The hospitality industry is slowly and carefully moving forward with reopening. The California Office of Emergency Services is donating Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) including masks and hand sanitizer to Monterey area hotels. The Monterey Conference Center is a distribution point for this effort - 1,000 masks for hotels up to 100 rooms, 2,000 masks for hotels between 101 and 200 rooms, and 4,000 masks for hotels with over 200 rooms. Tourists visiting our hotels, which is now allowed, will be receiving this PPE.
