Restarting tourism safely – New Guidance
New workplace guidance published.
Guidance to support Scotland’s tourism and hospitality sector to reopen safely has been published.
The industry has been asked to prepare for reopening on 15 July, if sufficient progress is made to move to phase 3 of the route-map.
It sets out the key public health measures that will need to be taken to allow safe reopening, including:
- Establishing physical distancing taking account of organisational capacity, queue management, signage and markings
- Enhanced hand hygiene measures and cleaning practice
- Advice on workforce planning, including training and equality issues
- Guidance for customers to ensure they know how to plan ahead and engage safely with the tourism and hospitality sector
The guidance is designed for use by the whole sector, including:
- all accommodation providers (hotels, B&Bs, self-catering, caravan/holiday parks etc. )
- visitor attractions
- marine and adventure tourism
- other activity or experience tourism operations/centres
- tour operators
- pubs and restaurants
- retail aspects of tourism
- natural spaces insofar as they relate to tourism, such as the National Parks
