Operational capacity allows for 24 hour room turn-around between guests to allow for health and cleaning requirements between arrivals and departures. These requirements are much more thorough than a standard hotel room clean, and include the use of PPE equipment, sanitising and deep cleaning. The Occupancy figures now only include Managed Isolation and exclude Quarantine as of the report released 27 October 2020.
