Day One Stays is offering discounts for those who need to live separate from their families during the Coronavirus pandemic. 

Headquartered in Seattle, Day One Stays is a luxury apartment rental and corporate housing company that caters to the higher-end business travelers and medical staff. 

To answer the growing concerns with the novel COVID-19 virus, and with Seattle being one of the worst cities in the nation affected by the pandemic to date, Day One Stays is offering discounted apartments to those in need of a quarantine getaway. 

Mack Owen, CEO of Day One Stays, said:

"We saw at least 30% cancellation  immediately. I just thought: 'they are sitting there empty anyway,' and when my brother got stuck in Europe because he didn't want to do mass transit with three small children at home, I knew I had to help here."

From now until the end of April (when several area schools are intending to be back in service), guests will receive an average of 40% off typical stay rates, pending availability. Once the stay is complete, the CEO vows to have an industrial cleaning service sanitize the living space and replace all linens. Additionally, spaces will stay empty for an additional 4 days (reports show the coronavirus can live on surfaces for 2-3 days).

Owen further explains:

"This isn't for everyone, and I know some people might even disapprove of me doing this, but I'm a husband and a father too. I would do anything to keep my family safe and I hope someone would be willing to help me if I needed it. This is what I know and how I can help."
