In order to present Austria as a safe country to travel to, the Austrian government has announced that employees in the tourist industry across the country should be tested for the coronavirus from July. A renowned Tirol medical laboratory has been testing test mountain (hiking) guides as well as staff working in accommodation services, restaurants, cable cars, sports shops and leisure facilities since the beginning of June.
We are also arranging training for coronavirus prevention and hygiene in conjunction with doctors in the Stubai Valley and the traditional “hollu” Tirol hygiene specialists.
This is how we aim to make our contribution to making hospitality safer in the Stubai.
