The gathering of humanity

... is one of the fundamental needs in creating a sustainable and cohesive culture

We look to all the individuals around the world who come together to share our common interests in various spaces to now drive the social change needed to keep one another safe. Our social responsibility has allowed us to support one another at times of need and to reach out and connect even when the challenges are great. We look to bridging the divide we currently face by using technology, hybrid Events and online platforms. This however will never replace the need to come together and meet face to face. We look to implementing Protocols worldwide that might assist us in achieving a positive outcome.

A simple cloth mask can keep those around us safe. Our crews depend on the Events Industry for livelihoods and if we achieve a few more of these measures then we may once again open safely. There are many ways in which we can assist in developing techniques like planned social distancing and Protocol Monitors and Officers that will keep our passion and workspace alive. Our strength is in connection and planning. We can achieve anything once we set our minds to it. We thank all who are currently involved in the process and invite all those in our Industry to actively participate in the process.

Science & Medicine

The formation of Protocols are based on scientific evidence from various fields and the implementation is to go through public testing and sustainability studies. Protocols are about saving lives and protecting the public and private sectors.

Compassion & Ethics

In considering the implementation and use of Protocols we put People First as lives are at stake. Ethical considerations are to form a baseline in terms of the sharing of information and the use of data to form the needed Protocol measures.

Technology & Monitoring

The use of Technology fundamentally changes how effectively we are able to implement Protocols and then monitor their effectiveness. Monitoring data and the ever changing direction of the challenges we face in the world determines the speed of our response.

The Covid Protocols series are a collaboration between Hello Adventures and Khotso from Southern Xplorer to offer YOU a behind-the-scenes look at what tourism businesses in South Africa are doing to get travel-ready during the Covid19 pandemic.

The one above is "Covid Safety Protocols for Accommodation".

The other videos in this series are:
- 10 Reasons Why You Should Travel After Lockdown - Tips for Travelling in South Africa After Covid-19
- Travelling in 2020 and 2021 - 6 Tips for Travelling After the Covid-19 Lockdown
- Covid Safety Protocols for Airports

With safety protocols in place, as a traveller you’ll feel safer when you travel after lockdown, and as a tourism business you’ll know you’re ready to welcome guests as soon as possible.

Important Note: These protocols are guidelines, drawn up by the tourism industry in South Africa.
Surveys and studies are being put together by Youth Tourism South Africa in collaboration with the Department of Tourism and Events at CPUT in order to record the impact of COVID-19 on Tourism and Events.
Covid-19 Protocols documents and footage are there to advise the public on the regulations set our in Government documents.

Protocol guidelines

important things to know

The protocols being implemented worldwide and relating to the current COVID-19 pandemic are guidelines, measures and procedures formed by medical bodies, councils, and scientific research and study. It is advised that you consult directly with your Government or representative Council or Association before implementing any COVID-19 protocols. There are many legal implications if you implement measures that are not uniformly accepted worldwide. Currently the main reference point for all COVID-19 protocols is the World Health Organization - https://www.who.int/emergencies/diseases/novel-coronavirus-2019

Please seek legal assistance and oversight when developing or implementing any protocol measures.
This site and all related sites DO NOT in any way or form develop protocols and all protocols listed on the site are guidelines only, by the relevant representative organisation. This site is a Public Benefit page with the aim of studying the impact of COVID-19 on Tourism in South Africa.
