Not following Airbnb's Health and Safety guidelines could cost you your payout. It can also be a real threat to your short-term rentals business.
There are specific requirements for hosts and guests alike to follow when they have been diagnosed with COVID19 or have had been in contact with someone who has been. Be sure that everyone involved in your Airbnb business is following them.
The penalties for violating these guidelines are pretty strong.
There is also specific guidance on who you can host during the pandemic.
Shared accommodation hosts should also pay attention, as I explain the nuances for hosting in shared spaces.
**** Airbnb's sample message to all guests requesting to book (copy-paste into your messages to guests and include in your instant booking message):
“In the interest of the health and safety of all my guests, I’m asking everyone to answer the following questions before they book:
In the last two weeks, have you or anyone you live with traveled to any areas that have been impacted by COVID-19?
Have you been diagnosed with, or suspect that you have contracted, COVID-19?
Do you currently have any travel restrictions in your area due to COVID-19?”
