The Jacksonville Marriott Marquis is offering free dinner and free drinks to guests in a bid to combat the Zika virus outbreak.
The hotel, located in the Jacksonville city limits, said Thursday it is also opening its doors for free to guests who have contracted Zika in the United States.
The city of Jacksonville has had nearly 1,600 cases of the Zika infection, which causes mild symptoms, since March.
The virus is not spread by mosquitoes.
Hotels in the area are also accepting guests who haven’t had any symptoms and who have not tested positive for the virus.
The Marquis hotel has been offering free meals and drinks since March 6.
The Jacksonville Marriott said in a statement that it is working with state and local officials to ensure that guests are offered free food, drinks and transportation to and from their hotel rooms.
