Public Health anticipates shutting down floors one through eight pending the results of an inspection report.
Guam – The Verona Hotel is the latest establishment to be cited for sanitary violations and may be partially shut down.
Department of Public Health and Social Services Director Jim Gillan confirms Public Health issued Verona Resort a citation due to rat and cockroach infestations.
Another area of concern, according to Gillan, is mold. Inspectors were at the hotel facility today to conduct an inspection and complete walkthrough where they discovered mold in several of the floors. Gillan says Guam EPA will need to step in to test the samples of mold taken from the hotel.
For now, Public Health’s Administrator for Environmental Health Tom Nadeau says they anticipate shutting down floors one through eight pending the results of an inspection report.
The remaining floors 9 to 11 will remain open, but Gillan says those floors seem to be operating as condominiums.
Nadeau says a tavern operating inside Verona was also cited and given a letter grade D with 72 demerit points.
We contacted Verona Resort and left a message for President David Su but did not receive a return call as of news time.
