Prince George's County

National Harbor Hotel Shut Down for ‘Unreasonable’ Coronavirus Violations

Prince George’s County health officials have shut down the Hampton Inn in National Harbor for violating the county’s coronavirus pandemic restrictions.

A citation on the hotel door said it is an “unsafe facility” with an “unreasonable coronavirus risk,” WTTG-TV (Channel 5) reported.

County Executive Angela Alsobrooks has expressed concerns about large groups of young people partying at the Harbor amid the pandemic, particularly those without adult supervision.

Especially troubling, she said, are adults reportedly renting hotel rooms for these children to use unsupervised.

However, county officials have not indicated that the Hampton Inn hosted such parties, WTTG reported.

The Hampton Inn closure comes in the wake of Prince George’s officials instituting stricter guidelines as cases spike in the county. Residents will now be mandated to wear masks in public — whether indoors or outdoors. Indoor gatherings are limited to 10 people while outdoor events are capped at 25 people and both grocery and big-box stores are to handle 50 percent capacity.
