Mar 30 2020, 7:00 am

Both the Broadview and Gladstone Hotel have closed in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, with each haven planning to reopen when it’s safe to do so.

The Gladstone announced the “pause” on operations on social media, by sharing an image of the well-known mural by Shepard Fairey that hangs over the neighbourhood, reading “Rise Above.”

“We’re looking up to [the mural], knowing that our community will find a way to Rise Above during this difficult time,” reads the post’s caption.

“We’ll open our doors to everyone again as soon as it’s safe to do so. Until then, we hope everyone stays safe and healthy.”

The Broadview Hotel announced its closure through social media as well, with a simple image that reads “The Broadview Hotel, Important Update.”

This closure includes The Broadview Hotel, The Civic Restaurant, The Bistro+Bar, and The Rooftop, and will be in effect “until the current situation subsides.”

“We feel this is the only responsible action to be taken under these circumstances to mitigate the transmission of this global virus,” the post reads.

“We are hopeful that these challenging times fighting coronavirus will come to an end, but to reduce the spreading, let’s choose to be safe and not sorry. Our actions can save lives, so we ask you, with sincerity, take social distancing very seriously, and let us get through this together.⁠”
