More than 1,000 campsites reopen this Monday once the Ministry of Health has approved the protocol prepared for the sector by the Institute of Tourist Quality of Spain (ICTE), which applies to all establishments in the country regardless of their type, category or size .
The protocol requires the preparation of a contingency plan in each camping that identifies risks, allocates the necessary human and material resources, including the use of personal protective equipment, and determines how to act if cases of clients or employees with symptoms of COVID are detected- 19.
As explained in a note by the Spanish Campings Federation (FEEC), social distancing, temperature measurements and the “recommendation” to test are imposed for employees, as well as the disinfection of personal objects and work tools, among other measures.
For customers, online booking and payment by telematic means will be encouraged, in addition to avoiding visits to the reception and the plots will be assigned, giving priority to those that have been 48 hours unoccupied, with the possibility, if necessary, to leave an empty plot between two occupied.
In the common areas, in addition to respecting safety distances, gauging will be controlled, but how the use of the pools will be defined.
The president of the FEEC, Ana Beriain, points out in the note that this protocol allows guaranteeing “100%” the safety of customers, who also have an added bonus of security since they are in the middle of nature and with large outdoor spaces .
