Airbnb has announced that its hosts and guests must wear face masks and practise social distancing when interacting with one another.
These requirements are part of Airbnb's COVID-19 Safety Practices, which Airbnb has said all of its hosts and guests must follow, and which also include a requirement for hosts and their teams to abide by Airbnb's five-step enhanced cleaning process.
