As lockdown eases in countries around the world, the hospitality industry is welcoming back employees and guests after months of uncertainty.
According to a new survey by UKHospitality, nearly a million hospitality employees are expected to return to work in the UK before the end of July. Elsewhere in Europe, Spain has already begun easing itself out of quarantine as hotels open to a ‘new normal’ of strict health and safety measures.
New Zealand – with its low number of active cases – is looking to set the benchmark for global tourism’s road to recovery, while Australia, despite localised outbreaks, has opened hotels adhering to COVID-19 health protocols. Despite struggling to overcome the first wave, North America has welcomed the re-opening of many hotels with occupancy levels rising day by day.
There’s no doubt the travel and tourism industry has been heavily impacted by the coronavirus crisis, leaving hotels across the globe considering the future very carefully. While businesses worry about workplace conditions and health and safety regulations, employees and guests want to know that they’ll be safe. Easing post-lockdown anxiety will not be straightforward.
