The border states of Sonora and Arizona will have a certification process to standardize protocols against Covid-19 in hotels and that it is certain that tourism from both neighboring entities will be equally safe in either of the two sites.
Luis Núñez Noriega, head of the Commission for the Promotion of Tourism (Cofetur), said during a meeting with members of the Sonoran Association of Tour Operators, Guides and Tourist Hosts, that it is the next step they will take so that there is a more efficient and safe reactivation of the sector in the entity.
“What follows in this matter is a homologation process that we are preparing with Arizona so that we have a certification process, particularly for hotels, which is a space that tour operators travel with their own clients,” he said.
With this, it is expected that tourists from Arizona and Sonora have the certainty that they are the same protocols that will be applied on both sides of the border, he argued, which will generate a space of greater confidence for tourists .
“Obviously, it is around two cross-border states that are going to be reinforced with this certification process and hence that trust scheme we want them to know in other places for when they visit Sonora again,” emphasized the state public official.
Núñez Noriega stressed that currently the entire tourism sector in the state is attached to the strictest, as well as rigorous protocols, which once tourism can be reactivated 100%, will facilitate the flow of visitors to the different destinations of the entity .
He concluded that throughout the almost 10 months of the health contingency in Sonora, the Sonora tourism union has been an example of preparation, as they have constantly been in training to provide their services in the safest and most Covid-19 free way.
