Partnership with City of Baltimore and UMMS
Mayor Bernard C. “Jack” Young, University of Maryland Medical System, Lord Baltimore Hotel Announce Partnership to House Individuals Who Need to Self-Isolate
Agreement will allow residents who may have difficulty self-isolating due to their living situations
BALTIMORE, MD — Today, Mayor Bernard C. “Jack” Young, the University of Maryland Medical System (UMMS), and the Lord Baltimore Hotel announced a partnership that will allow residents with COVID-19 symptoms but cannot self-isolate to be referred to the Lord Baltimore Hotel. Mayor Young issued the following statement:
“I want to thank the Lord Baltimore Hotel and UMMS for their efforts in putting this partnership together,” Mayor Young said. “By accepting referrals from hospitals for people who, due to their living situation, may have difficulty self-isolating, this partnership will reduce the number of interactions among residents who have tested positive.”
Through the partnership, individuals experiencing mild or moderate symptoms who do not require hospitalization may be referred to the Lord Baltimore Hotel, if their living situation makes it difficult to self-isolate. This includes residents who live in multi-generational households, congregate living settings, individuals experiencing homelessness, members of the immigrant community, and frontline workers who wish to reduce the risk of transmission at home.
QUOTE FROM LORD BALTIMORE
For 92 years, we have provided hospitality to the Baltimore community. We couldn’t be more proud to be able to continue to do so today during these trying times.
UMMS and the Baltimore City Health Department will work together to provide resident and clinical support services. Meals and cleaning services will be provided to residents at this location as well.
