I got this notification in my app that I have to agree to a new Covid enhanced cleaning protocol, social distancing and mask use by November 20th or they’ll block off my calendar. I can’t comply. I’m a live-in homestay host and other people besides Airbnb guests live here too. The home has central air. Even if you were a mask, it doesn’t matter because we all share the same air. So whether you are 2 feet away or on the other side of the house, all of the air is recirculated and the filters aren’t capable of removing viruses.
So basically this will be the end of Airbnb for me for now. By November 20th, it would’ve been a full year since Covid started an yet they are shutting me down now. If I get reported and violate the terms, I’m sure my account will be terminated but if I shut down voluntarily I’m sure there’s a chance to start hosting again later.
