Mauritius has set out revised sanitation guidelines for its travel and tourism sector, and launched a new Safe Travels app to help businesses achieve certification, as well as a new video showcasing "the new normal" for tourism.
The new guidance from the country’s tourism authority has been endorsed by the WTTC, and aims to bring uniformity to the island nation’s ongoing efforts to reopen to tourism.
Advice is tailored for different businesses, ranging from car rental and golf courses to guesthouses.
Measures include recommendations on cleaning and disinfection, social distancing, contactless trading and operation, and protocols to follow for suspected Covid-19 cases.
Regular inspections will be carried out by the tourism authority to ensure the measures are being implemented correctly, while failure to comply may result in businesses having their licences cancelled.
