A cleaning certificate program has been launched especially for all the hotels and tourist attractions by the Hong Kong tourism board to make sure that all the visitors are safe from covid 19
In collaboration with the Hong Kong quality assurance agency, the Hong Kong tourism board has launched a certification program known as Cleaning certification so that all the tourist attractions and the hotels are safer for the visitors, visiting amidst the pandemic.
The two organisations have gotten together and have formed a list of hygiene protocols and standards that have to be performed by the hotels, tourist hotspots and restaurants so that people are aware of the coronavirus protocol.
This protocol will be applicable everywhere like stores, tourism attractions, malls, hotels, restaurants etc.
All these organisations will have to follow the hygiene and anti-pandemic measures once all of them have passed the assessment which the quality assurance agency and tourism board will conduct.
Once the quality assurance test is done, all the details will be posted on the website of HKQAA, to show that these spots are safe for tourists. All this information will help the locals as well as visitors in understanding which hotspots are safe for them. Moreover, HKQAA will randomly conduct inspections to see if the protocols are being followed or not.
Chairman of HKTB Dr. YK Pang stated that all thanks to the pandemic, the new normal, especially in the sector of tourism. Public health, as well as safety, is now a priority for the visitors.
A lot of international travel and tourists’ organisations have laid down the strict hygiene and anti-pandemic guidelines, which means standardising the hygiene measures and spreading the message to visitors that Hong Kong values their life and is committed towards hygiene and safety.
The best part is, once the guidelines and decisions were out around 1800 business showed interest, this includes the Hongkong Disneyland, which has opened earlier and was taking advanced reservations.
