Tourism Minister Nigel Huddleston said

"I want to encourage the public to experience a great British holiday this summer and be confident that they can do so safely.

"This new industry standard will show people that tourism businesses, destinations and attractions are adhering to the guidance. It puts safety first and is an important move in getting this industry back up and running."


Businesses across the UK are required to follow their respective national guidance. In England, businesses must align with the UK Government’s official guidance for the sector

The guidance for hotels and accommodation providers - such as campsites, caravan parks and short term lets - indoor and outdoor visitor attractions and conference and events centres outlines the processes and facilities that tourism businesses in England need to put in place before re-opening.

These include:

  • Hotels and accommodation providers will need to introduce deep cleaning regimes between guests.
  • Meal services including breakfasts will need to be pre-booked and timed, and shared facilities will only be accessible to one family group at a time.
  • Timed tickets will be introduced for exhibitions, theme parks, galleries and attractions to reduce the number of visitors in locations at the same time.
  • One way systems, clear floor markings and a queue management system should be in place to maintain social distancing measures at all attractions and help to limit contact between both staff and visitors.
  • Organisations should also encourage cashless payments 
  •  attractions need to introduce regular deep cleaning regimes 

 

All businesses signed up to the ‘We’re Good To Go’ industry standard will be notified if there are changes to the official guidance. A call-handling service will provide support and assessors will also carry-out random spot-checks to ensure businesses are sticking to the guidance.
