COVID-19 Support for North America Members
For the past year, IAAPA has been working to support members around the world through the COVID-19 pandemic. Guest and employee safety has always been our industry’s top priority, and IAAPA continues to provide resources, guidance and connections to members around the world.
IAAPA's thorough resource, “COVID-19 Reopening Guidance: Considerations for the Global Attractions Industry” is available in both English and Spanish. IAAPA continues to share it with local and regional governments and public authorities tasked with reopening their communities to help communicate the work the industry is doing to ensure safe operations for guests and employees. The guidelines have also been referenced by the United Nations World Tourism Organization (UNWTO) in their Global Guidelines to Restart Tourism, and the World Tourism and Travel Council (WTTC) in their Attractions: Global Protocols for the New Normal resource.
We encourage members to download, use and share this document as they prepare to reopen in 2021.
For additional resources and support, IAAPA members can access the exclusive COVID-19 resource center for timely information, contacts, updates and data, as well as current advocacy efforts.
