Everyone everywhere is cautioned to shelter at home and avoid public contact whenever possible. Schools are closing and most businesses are limiting the amount of workers permitted to the work place. The television news is alive 24/7 with updates and information about the spread of the Covoid-19 virus. There is nothing about this world pandemic that should be taken lightly. Everyone needs to pay attention and follow the CDC and WHO guidelines.
The Hospitality Industry has all but shut down. However, there is a niche market for those seeking an escape to a place other than their home. A shelter in place rental that limits public access and allows one to escape sitting at home glued to the news stations increasing anxiety which often produces negative side effects by increasing stress levels.
SG Resorts Travel & Vacation Club has a limited number of niche properties that offer an alternative to shelter in home confinement. Confinement is necessary and self-confinement whenever possible should be the rule of thumb for everyone but if you need to escape your home confinement of if your home lacks the necessary space required to keep the entire family together, you do have options.
For example as an extreme example, you can escape to paradise on the north coast of the Dominican Republic where SG maintains a few SIP Rentals in private gated communities with little outside access granted to the general public. These are SIP Rentals where you control who comes onto the property and when. SG has now made these properties available for monthly rental as a direct result of the Covid-19 outbreak. If you are in the country or traveling to the country, you can isolate your family and enjoy a small private staff to run errands or do your shopping. If you would like more information on Dominican Republic SIP Rental Availability contact Ian Shopsis at 1-809-722-7734.
SHELTER IN PLACE RENTALS (SIP Rentals) represent a niche rental market which evolved as a direct response to the Covid-19 global pandemic. The Graph on the right illustrates just how fast the Covid-19 can spread if Social Distancing is not practiced.
Social Distancing is the first step towards shelter in place and it is the only known way to prevent the virus from spreading to deadly levels as illustrated in the graph. Who should practice social distancing? The short answer is everyone on earth today.
Many people are still on vacation or stuck in vacation locations while others are still considering travel and possible vacation plans but at the end of the day it is not a good idea or practice when you consider the severity of the Covid-19 virus and all the warnings by basically every government agency all over the world.
Social Distancing and Shelter In Place is the new normal for the hospitality industry at least for the next several months and without a doubt until we get to the otherside of the Covid-19 Pandemic Curve which is upon us today. SG Resorts International has a portfolio of properties that have been removed from the nightly (transient) rental inventory and made available for those who need to shelter in place other than in their own home and for those who may be stuck in a location and need a SIP Rental.
In the Dominican Republic there are a few unique SIP Properties still available in such communities as Seahorse Ranch, Orchid Bay Estates, Haciendas El Choco and others including the Watermark Boutique Residences located on Cabarete Beach. If you are an American Citizen and find yourself stuck in the Dominican Republic for any reason you are invited to contact Ian Shopsis. at 809-722-7734. We also invite all our European & Canadian friends to contact us a well.
Taking a closer look at social distancing you will see just how effective it can be in slowing down and eventually, at least hopefully, eliminating the pandemic before us today. Taking no responsibility and not heeding the warnings of the importance of social distancing you can see just how horrific the results are.
If you are seeking an alternative to home sheltering yourself you need to consider a few critical factors. First- if you travel don't travel with a lot of people and avoid public transportation whenever possible. Next - when you get to your destination make sure your contact with the others is at a minimum and you follow the suggested distance required for effective social distancing when contact with others is required. Social Separation and Shelter In Place is the new normal for a while.
Getting to the other side of the curve is possible if everyone follows the guidelines set by the CDC and the WHO. The critical word is "everyone" because it only takes one irresponsible person to affect or "infect" the lives of many.
