Tourism NI recently partnered with the national tourism bodies of England, Scotland and Wales to roll out a new UK-wide industry standard and consumer mark to provide reassurance to businesses, customers and communities that safe working guidelines in relation to COVID-19 have been adopted.
Over 400 business have signed up to date and, with the tourism and hospitality sector re-opening over the weekend, Tourism NI’s Chief Executive John McGrillen has paid a visit to the Clayton Hotel Belfast, Culloden Hotel and Brunel’s restaurant in Newcastle who were among some of the first businesses to register.
‘We’re Good To Go’ is a free scheme that allows businesses to sign-up and commit to implementing the relevant Government and public health guidance, including undertaking a COVID-19 risk assessment. Businesses can in turn use the licensed mark as part of their communications.
To obtain the mark businesses must complete the registration process through the ‘We’re Good to Go’ online platform goodtogoni.com and will go through a number of steps to verify they have put the necessary processes in place to re-open safely.
Accommodation, visitor attractions, restaurants and pubs, business conference and events venues and tour and coach operators are currently eligible to apply.
