There was a similar directive in Phuket, but hotels with guests remain open. Hotels were closing anyway as their employees are eligible for government handouts if laid off. The worry was that hotels with guests may follow suit leaving guests stranded.

What about the people who stay in the hotels?

See post 4 it's with the exception of those that already have guests, at least I hope so because I stay long term in an hotel.
