Covid-19: Greek Tourism Bodies Ready to Submit Proposals for Hotel Health Protocols
Proposals for the creation of protocols for the seamless and safe operation of hotels during the post-coronavirus period will be submitted on Monday, May 11, to the Greek Tourism Ministry, an announcement by the Greek Tourism Confederation (SETE) and the Hellenic Chamber of Hotels said on Wednesday.
SETE and the hotel chamber underlined that they are in constant cooperation with the tourism ministry for the establishment of operation protocols adapted to the hygiene requirements of the health system due to the Covid-19 pandemic. They are also in contact with EODY, Greece’s public health organization.
In their announcement, SETE and the chamber underlined that any “leaks” from the press regarding the protocols is only causing confusion to the market “at a time when seriousness, responsibility and valid information are required”.
SETE is cooperating with its member companies Cosmocert, SGS Hellas, TUV Austria and TÜV Hellas (TÜV Nord Group), to compose health protocols for hotels and also for tour buses and ferries.
On its part, the hotel chamber has launched a special working group to put together a series of positions on how hotels should operate in the post-coronavirus period.
Greece’s year-round hotels are expected to resume operations as of June 1 and the government sees the tourism season opening in July.
