AALARA releases guide for the reopening of Australia’s attractions industry
Aiming to aid attractions as they approach reopening after the Coronavirus shutdown, the Australian Amusement, Leisure and Recreation Association (AALARA) has released its Reopening Guide: Considerations for the Australian Attractions Industry.
Developed in association with AALARA partner the International Association of Amusement Parks and Attractions (IAAPA), attraction professionals and operators from around the world, medical experts, as well as health guidance from Australian and global government departments, the guide outlines principles and approaches to consider for reopening once when lockdown restrictions are lifted for attractions business operators.
Available to members, AALARA expects that its Reopening Guide will be used to suggest operational adjustments to ensure a COVIDsafe facility and develop operators’ own plans.
AALARA will be submitting the Guide to Federal and state governments in an effort to expedite reopening times, ensure conditions are commercially appropriate and deliver a safe environment for staff and guests.
Commenting on the release, AALARA advised “while we lobby and advocate for our members and industry, we find ourselves in a positive position where we are making progress in getting in front of the right people and by providing them (with) proactive information and resources we have made available to our members and industry, we believe this will be looked upon favourably by state and territory health departments.”
The AALARA Reopening Guide, along with many more COVID-19 resources relevant to the attractions industry is available on the AALARA website at www.aalara.com.au
