Following the current public health advice, it is believed that the tourist industry in the UK could reopen on the 4th of July. Already, many UK residents are opting for a ‘staycation’ this year. This is instead of travelling abroad, as currently there is a strict 14-day quarantine for those returning from overseas.
Furthermore, those looking to travel in the UK are predominantly focusing their search on properties where they can enforce social distancing, such as self-catering short-term lets, property rentals and Airbnb bookings.
While this is excellent news for businesses with self-catering and short-term let properties, it is vital to ensure guests that the property is COVID-safe through effective cleaning practices.
The New Industry Protocols
Working with the government, leading industry bodies such as Quality in Tourism and the UK Short Term Accommodation Association have come up with three main protocols for businesses to follow;
- Risk assessments for each property
- Cleaning protocols
- Safe contact with guests.
