Airbnb will work with its host network to provide temporary accommodation for 1

00,000 COVID-19 emergency responders and health professionals, the company said Thursday. The expanded efforts build on pilot programs in Italy and France, where, according to a press release, nearly 6,000 hosts have already offered their homes.

In the new program, hosts can open their homes free of charge via Airbnb's Open Homes platform for emergency accommodation created in 2012. Airbnb also announced that all guest stay fees will be waived if hosts are unable to offer their apartments for free. The company announced plans to implement stricter disinfection and safety measures in the participating residences.
