Cairo - Mubasher: More than 70 hotels in Egypt last week have received the health safety certificate, which is necessary for resuming their operations, according to Egypt’s tourism and antiquities minister.
Receiving the certificate came after hotels have undergone inspections by a specialised committee from the health ministry, the chamber of hotels, governorate authorities, and the tourism ministry.
The committee verified the hotels' commitment and adherence to the health guidelines issued by the government and the World Health Organisation (WHO) to contain the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.
With the health safety certificate, hotels in the Red Sea, South Sinai, Alexandria, Suez, and Cairo will be enabled to reopen from 15 May with a maximum capacity of 25%.
Starting early June, hotels are allowed to receive guests at 50% of their capacity without holding parties, weddings, and overnight activities.
