A new survey commissioned by the Washington D.C.-based American Hotel & Lodging Association found that while Americans remain hesitant about traveling, they largely support efforts by Congress to help the travel industry recover and bring back employees.
The report found that 70% of Americans support the passage of additional economic stimulus for the industries most negatively impacted by the pandemic, including the travel and hospitality sectors.
Only 18% of respondents to the survey reported taking an overnight trip since March and the AHLA reports that the hotel industry has been hit nine times harder than during 9/11 with more than 8 in 10 hotels having to lay of or furlough workers during the COVID-19 pandemic.
