Airbnb has disclosed in a public statement how it plans on "developing a new Cleaning Protocol for hosts" indicating that hosts or cleaning staff use personal protective equipment and special disinfectants that are approved by regulatory agencies.

 Another new rule is that hosts have to wait at least 24 hours between rentals.
The statement goes on to mention "If hosts are unable to commit to our Cleaning Protocol, they can alternatively opt into a new feature called Booking Buffer, to create a vacancy period between stays. Hosts can commit to keeping their home empty for a set period in between stays, with no activity other than cleaning. Reservations will be automatically blocked during that time frame, currently set at 72 hours."
