Some 487 hotels and resorts in 19 governorates across Egypt have received health and safety certificates in the period between May 15 and July 4, according to the Ministry of Tourism and Antiquities.
The certificates allow them to resume business again as Egypt adopts coexistence plan with the novel coronavirus (Covid-19). Tourism businesses and hotels in Egypt receive the certificates after fulfilling regulations outlined by the Ministry of Tourism and Antiquities in this regard. This is in accordance with standards put in place by Egypt’s Ministry of Health and the World Health Organization (WHO).
The ministry has called on citizens and tourism companies to restrict dealing to hotels that have obtained a health safety certificate, to protect general health and safety. This brings the total number that have received the health and safety certificate to 30 diving centres, 13 yachts and 4 marine activity facilities. The certificates were awarded following the verification that the businesses have met all the health and safety requirements set out by the Egyptian government and WHO.
