Coronavirus: guidance for tourism and hospitality businesses for a phased and safe re-opening: Greater Clarity on what can be reopened from 13 July
The WTA welcomes the greater clarity given last night on what can be opened on the 13th July. For details follow the Welsh Government link.
However, it is all subject to whether secondary rates rise or not, as we have seen with regard to Leicester, there could be further localised lockdowns subject to the R value and virus transmission.
This does though confirm that accommodation with kitchen, bath/shower and WC facilities which are used only by the customer is considered to be “self-contained” and so able to reopen on 13 July. The guidance, states:
Caravan and touring sites will need to ensure the strict application of industry guidance on shared waste disposal and water points.
All shared facilities, aside from water and disposal points will remain closed including toilets, shower blocks, laundry, restaurants, nightclubs, swimming pools, children’s play areas, bars, cafes, etc. Accommodation can only be let to members of the same household.
Local councils across Wales will be being vigilante so it will be important to ensure your Risk Assessments are written down, filed and readily available for possible spot checks and that all COVID-19 secure procedures are in place.
From tomorrow tourism businesses across Wales can register on the “We’re Good To Go”: https://goodtogo.visitbritain.com/home.
