first_imgBanyuwangi regency in East Java has begun to reopen tourist destinations under “new normal” policies to alleviate the economic impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on tourism, regent Abdullah Azwar Anas has said. “We have begun opening several destinations in Banyuwangi. It is still limited, including hotels,” he said in a virtual discussion with the National Disaster Mitigation Agency (BNPB) on Sunday, as reported by kompas.com.Abdullah said prior to opening tourism, the administration had simulated other in-person activities, such as public events and services at houses of worship. He said the COVID-19 pandemic had hit the local tourism sector hard. Therefore, in a bid to breathe life into the industry, the administration would reopen the destinations under strict health protocols.“If, in the past, we promoted the price as a selling point, we cannot longer do that now. Health must be our number one [concern],” he added.Read also: Gnarly, brah: Foreign surfers invited to Mentawai to kick-start tourismHe also explained that hotels and restaurants in Banyuwangi would be required to obtain and renew city administration health licenses weekly to ensure health protocols were being enforced properly.
