Tourism departments told to get nationwide resorts ready

The Phnom Penh municipal and provincial tourism departments have been instructed to organise all tourist attractions across the country in accordance with safety standards before reopening resorts after the government lifted the inter-provincial travel ban and the closure of all resorts on April 25.

Minister of Tourism Thong Khon said: “All tourist destinations need to improve management, especially the maximum number of guests allowed at one time and to follow social distancing.”

Khon said that for small family gatherings in restaurants or cafes in tourist areas, it is necessary to maintain proper safety measures.

He said the departments must cooperate with provincial administrations and local authorities to implement measures to conduct proper screening and not allow people who are in quarantine or testing for Covid-19 to visit re-opened tourist areas.

He said that all tourist destinations must implement the measures set by the Ministry of Health and the Tourism Safety Rules of the tourism ministry to prevent the spread of Covid-19.

He added that all tourist areas must record visitors’ details and use the “Stop Covid-19” QR code system.

All destinations must arrange temperature screening, alcohol spraying, disinfection, and tourists are required to wear masks in accordance with safety measures.

In addition, operators must improve the quality of tourism products, maintain the environment, hygiene and apply appropriate prices for products and services.
