Leisure tourism ready to reopen

As the economies of the Middle East countries are gradually re-opening, the Middle East North Africa Leisure Attractions Council (Menalac) has started working on recommended minimum standards before re-opening.

A robust reopening strategy that takes into account the new health, safety and social distancing regime will help the Middle East’s leisure attraction facilities that includes amusement parks, theme parks, family entertainment centres and cinema theatres to gain customer confidence to avail the world-class entertainment facilities and bounce back soon after the planned re-opening of the economy.

Menalac has asked its Health and Safety Committee to draft a set of recommended minimum standards and procedures for its members before re-opening of these facilities.

Menalac members have started investing in implementing in the new Standard Operating Procedures that ensures health and safety of employees, customers and all stakeholders, training of the staffs on the new requirements as well as regular cleaning, the availability of hand sanitisers, personal protective equipment within facilities to ensure the customers remain healthy and free from virus infection while they avail amusement facilities.
