Abu Dhabi has launched its safe and clean certification programme across all businesses and organisations in tourism. As yet there are no moves to re-open the medical tourism sector in the city.
The Department of Culture and Tourism Abu Dhabi (DCT Abu Dhabi) has launched its safe and clean certification programme as it seeks to uplift and standardise the cleanliness and hygiene levels across all businesses and organisations in tourism.
As hotels, malls and other attractions in Abu Dhabi prepare to cautiously re-welcome guests to their venues, DCT Abu Dhabi is aiming to safeguard the health and wellbeing of consumers by offering certifications that ensure the compliance of standardised hygiene levels in tourism destinations and industry businesses within the emirate.
Phase One will be dedicated to hotels in Abu Dhabi, with other tourism attractions and businesses to follow. Hotels and, restaurants in Abu Dhabi will be permitted to reopen only if they adhere to new guidelines issued by DCT Abu Dhabi.
The rules include:
- Installation of thermal cameras integrated with the National Emergency Crisis and Disaster Management Authority system
- A separate room to isolate suspected coronavirus cases and a medical team on standby throughout operating hours
- All visitors must wear masks at all times and should be encouraged to use smart payments
As yet there are no moves to re-open the Abu Dhabi medical tourism sector.
Abu Dhabi plans to open its borders in July.
