Unsure about using vacation rentals in the era of social distancing and anti-maskers? Airbnb is implementing mandatory health and safety protocols for both guests and hosts that will require masks, distancing and enhanced cleanings.

The company announced Wednesday that beginning next week, all hosts and guests must commit to wearing masks and distancing when interacting. And starting Nov. 20, hosts must abide by a five-step cleaning protocol or risk being removed from the platform.
