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 unfolds.
We’re Good to Go – free scheme for tourism and hospitality businesses
The “We’re Good To Go” industry standard mark is a self-assessment scheme that has been designed in partnership with the national organisations (Visit Wales, Tourism Northern Ireland, Visit Scotland and Visit England) to provide reassurance for all sectors of the tourism industry, as well as reassurance to visitors, that businesses have clear processes in place and are following industry and Government COVID-19 guidance.
The scheme is free to join and open to all businesses across the industry.
It means that businesses can demonstrate that they are adhering to the respective Government and public health guidance, have carried out a COVID-19 risk assessment and checked that they have the required processes in place as they get ready to re-open.
“Addo. My promise to Wales”
As Wales’ tourism industry starts to re-open, our key communication message is ‘Visit Wales. Safely.’ This is a simple phrase that can be adapted for your business or local area, to encourage people to be responsible during their visit.
The focus of our messaging is a pledge that we are encouraging everyone travelling around Wales to get behind. To do the little things that make a big difference. To make a promise together, to ‘Addo’ as we prepare to start exploring again, to care for each other, our land and for our communities. The pledge can be signed virtually on www.visitwales.com/promise
