We understand that these are uncertain times for tourism businesses across Wales. We will aim to update you on matters of relevance as the situation around us unfolds.
As a responsible tourism destination we are keen to support the safety of the people of Wales and the visitors we welcome each year, hence we have issued this statement over social media:
Visit Wales. Later.
Please do not visit Wales at this time and avoid all unnecessary travel within Wales. Following these guidelines will save lives.
We look forward to welcoming you back in future; but for now, let’s all #staysafe.
During this unprecedented and exceptionally difficult time we are issuing regular bulletins and updates to industry.
We recognise the massive and unprecedented challenges Coronavirus is having on businesses and the economy. The Welsh Government is committed to doing everything possible to support businesses and has already taken a range of measures. Further details are available here https://businesswales.gov.wales/government-support-businesses.
We would like to reassure you that Visit Wales is continually monitoring the impact of Coronavirus (COVID-19) on the tourism sector and are working with colleagues across Welsh Government and UK Government to take appropriate measures in response to the unfolding situation.
Tourism businesses and stakeholders in Wales are advised to:
- visit the Business Wales website or call Business Wales helpline on 03000 6 03000 for specific guidance for businesses
- regularly visit the Public Health Wales website for up-to-date public health information for you, your staff and your visitors.
