Entrepreneurs will restart activities despite the fact that they still do not have the Tourist Health Certification that will be issued by the Tourism Secretariat of Quintana Roo in coordination with the Ministry of Health. Cancun Quintana Roo. –The Cancun hotel industry announced this Thursday that on June 1 they will reopen with 20 percent of the supply of hotel rooms, which would amount to just over 10,000 of the 47,000 that are offered. Hoteliers also reported that they will gradually increase the number until they return to normal operation. This, despite the fact that they still do not have the Tourist Health Certification that will be issued by the Quintana Roo Tourism Secretariat in coordination with the Health Secretariat.
Roberto Cintrón Gómez, president of the Hotel Association of Cancun, Puerto Morelos and Isla Mujeres, stated that Cancun needs to recover its activity and economy, which is why they will only start with that number of rooms available. In addition, they will not wait for state certification because most of the hotels in their agency and in Quintana Roo have health certificates issued by private organizations that include 140 protocols to guarantee that guests are safe and have peace of mind during their stay. The hotel leader affirmed that although they do not have the Tourist Sanitary Certification of Quintana Roo, the hotels will begin their operations with some restrictions, both in the number of rooms available, as well as in the diners of the law firms and common areas, as well as the placement of disinfectants for alcohol-based hands on each floor, entrances and exits, disinfection of TV controls, light switches, thermostats and door handles, cleaning and reduced capacity in elevators, among others.
For her part, Marisol Vanegas Pérez, the State Secretary for Tourism, announced that there will be 266 protocols that around 1,600 companies will have to comply with in Quintana Roo to obtain the Tourist Health Certification. The state official mentioned that starting this Friday, companies will be able to enter the Sedetur page, from where they can fill the 266 criteria that include areas of services, facilities, suppliers, personnel area and facilities of allies (companies with the that there are agreements). He estimated that at the end of this month the first thousand companies will already have their health certificate, although he rejected the opening for June 1, because the restart of the activity is decided in the federation and not in the companies.
