The guests at the two hotels included 140 professional cyclists.

Two luxury hotels in Abu Dhabi, which had been in lockdown amid concerns about the coronavirus during a professional cycling event, allowed some guests to leave on Sunday after they tested negative for the disease, company spokespersons said.

The W Abu Dhabi and the Crowne Plaza Abu Dhabi had been placed under lockdown on Friday as authorities screened all guests, including scores of professional cyclists. There were concerns they might have interacted with two Italian cyclists who were suspected of contracting the disease.

The guests at the two hotels, on Yas Island, included 140 professional cyclists participating in the final two stages of the UAE Tour, which was also canceled after the tests.

“No cases have been confirmed at the Crowne Plaza Abu Dhabi Yas Island. We are working closely with the local authorities to facilitate the departure of remaining guests,” a spokeswoman of the hotel said.

W Abu Dhabi said some guests at the hotel were cleared to leave the property following their screening results.

“All other guests (will) remain in the hotel pending their screening results and clearance from authorities,” a spokeswoman said. “We will resume normal operations as soon we have clearance from the authorities.”

Some guests, including professional cyclists, took to Twitter to say they were allowed to leave on Sunday after they tested negative for the virus.
