Holiday parks and campsites around the country are preparing to re-open.
Look out for the Visit Britain / Visit England – “Good to Go” Scheme – COVID-19 industry standard and consumer mark being used by tourism businesses. It is reassurance to local residents and for you visitors that clear processes are in place and that a business displaying the mark adheres to Government and public health guidance.
11,000 tourism businesses have now enrolled and received their “We’re #GoodToGo“ accreditation.
“We’re Good To Go” is the official UK mark to signal that a tourism and hospitality business has worked hard to follow Government and industry COVID-19 guidelines and has a process in place to maintain cleanliness and aid social distancing.
The “We’re Good To Go” industry standard mark is a self-assessment scheme that has been designed by VisitEngland in partnership with the national tourist organisations Tourism Northern Ireland, VisitScotland and Visit Wales to provide a ‘ring of confidence’ for all sectors of the tourism industry, as well as reassurance to visitors that businesses have clear processes in place and are following industry and Government COVID-19 guidance on cleanliness and social distancing.
The process aligns to latest UK Government guidelines and there is a requirement that all business signing up have read the relevant public health guidelines and understand the need to aid social distancing and cleanliness. Visit England have also put in place an alert system so that all those signed up receive notification of any relevant changes in this guidance.
Signing up has a compulsory requirement that Visit England have a key contact at the business so that they can continue to up-date on any changes in guidance that a business needs to address. Working closely with sector membership organisations, they have a process in place to ensure the individual and the membership organisations are kept informed.
Spot checks will happen throughout the recovery period as required and the business may need to take further steps to support feedback.
