Abu Dhabi has introduced a certification programme to standardise cleanliness and hygiene levels in the tourism sector.
The Department of Culture and Tourism - Abu Dhabi says the programme will be rolled out in phases. Phase one covers hotels, while the next two will focus on other tourism attractions and businesses.
The move comes as hotels, malls and other attractions in the capital prepare to welcome guests again.
DCT Abu Dhabi has urged interested organisations to follow its social media channels and website for updates regarding the programme.
"Our priority is to ensure that our residents and visitors feel safe and comfortable in Abu Dhabi," said Ali Hassan Al Shaiba, Executive Director of Tourism and Marketing at DCT Abu Dhabi.
"We believe that it is imperative for all institutions and businesses to elevate and then maintain hygiene standards. Our dedicated team has been working closely with different stakeholders to ensure that this programme considers all elements of health and safety and we encourage all hotels and industry partners to attain the certificate."
