Coronavirus: Hotels urged to close until April 30

The Association of Cyprus Tourist Enterprises (ACTE) whose members comprise many of Cyprus’ upscale hotels urged its members on Friday to consider suspending operations until April 30 in the wake of Coronavirus-fuelled repercussions on bookings and the economy as a whole.

The announcement was made following a meeting where members of the Association discussed the impact of Coronavirus on Cyprus’ tourism and hotel industry.

“Given yesterday’s inclusion by the Ministry of Health of the United Kingdom, our primary market for tourism, among countries whose nationals should be placed in self-isolation for 14 days (Category 2) upon arrival in Cyprus, in addition to the limit of 75 people imposed for group gatherings, we deem it wise to suggest to our members to consider an organised suspension of operations until April 30, to prevent disorderly closures,” ACTE said.

It also suggested the formation by the State of an administrative entity to monitor developments, record suggestions by competent authorities and coordinate necessary action.

Finally, the Association said that it will keep its members informed on further developments.
