South Africa’s tourism business council has launched a new app and training programme to help tourism businesses and restaurants reopen and operate safely.
Its new Travel Safe, Eat Safe scheme is based on industry-led protocols, and aims to build on South Africa’s Safe Travels certification from the WTTC.
The Opus4business app allows businesses to record compliance with new Covid protocols, such as health screening and cleaning procedures, and manage contact tracing.
It will also feature up-to-date information and industry updates, and offer training on key aspects of the protocols, as well as a PPE marketplace.
Travellers, meanwhile, will be able to download the app to check the status of various tourism sector businesses as the industry gears up for an increase in intra-provincial leisure travel and eventually, international tourism.
