Spain has started setting out detailed guidance to ensure its tourism sector is ready to resume operations on 1 July, while remaining safe for tourists, workers and residents.
The country’s health and tourism ministries are working together on the guidance, which covers service, cleaning and disinfection, maintenance, and risk management.
So far, it has produced 12 guides, with instructions and recommendations for: hotels and tourist apartments; restaurants; travel agencies; golf courses; rural accommodation; spas; museums; tourist guides; information offices; hostels; camping sites; and active tourism pursuits.
Another eight guides are awaiting Ministry of Health validation. These cover: protected natural areas; water sports and nautical activities; nightlife; amusement and leisure parks; tourist transport; visits to vineyards and other industrial facilities; cultural, historical and natural sites; unique public spaces and beaches.
