The Preah Sihanouk Provincial Administration has decided to temporarily shut Keang You hotel and turn it into a quarantine facility after some staff members and guests there tested positive for Covid-19.

The hotel is located in Village III of Sihanoukville's Sangkat III.

In a notice on August 7, provincial governor Kuoch Chamroeun said a Covid-19 response team from the provincial health department had taken samples from the hotel employees and guests, though he did not disclose the number.

The provincial administration told the hotel owner to work with the authorities to track down other people who had been in contact with the infected persons.
