Following the official guidelines of the Ministry of Health, the National Organization for Public Health and the Ministry of Tourism all the seasonal tourist accommodations who will reopen and host travellers this season must follow a Health Protocol that emphasizes on the health and safety of the accommodation staff and their guests.
