TTA is collating information for submission to the Tourism Business Council of South Africa (TBCSA) in order to assist in the development by the tourism industry of COVID-19 protocols.
This is an opportunity for you to give your opinion about sustainable measures to be put in place to protect ourselves, our guests and our businesses upon re-opening.
One of the strategic pillars of the TBCSA strategy is informing government policy; these COVID-19 industry protocols will inform the future policy discussion as well as showing the industry’s commitment to mitigating the spread of the virus. The TBCSA will put all proposed protocols in one document for discussion with the government through the Ministry of Tourism and other relevant platforms.
These protocols should follow the journey of the travellers and map-out safety protocols that we, as an industry will put in place to safeguard our staff and tourists. In preparation of these protocols, we must take into consideration the guidelines from the Department of Health, WHO, and UNWTO. These include basic hygiene, wearing of appropriate masks, social distancing, and others.
Please complete and submit your suggestions for protocols by 21 April 2020
The following sub-sector protocols are envisaged, but not limited and there is a section below where you can add further suggestions.
