The European ‘stamp’ for safe tourism arrives in time of coronavirus. The Member States, the Commission informs, will be able to attribute the new safety mark to tourist facilities that comply with the ISO (International Organization for Standardization) protocol on health and safety.

The optional measure should help facilitate the safe reopening of tourism in time for the summer season, improving the EU’s reputation as a tourist destination, even during the Covid-19 pandemic.
