The Ministry of Tourism has launched a project to promote safety and health in the hospitality industry during the pandemic and boost confidence in visitors.

The Safe Stay in Croatia project establishes a seal of assurance granted to businesses certified in the program. The seal ensures the businesses are compliant with national health and safety protocols in the hospitality industry. More than 2,400 tourism businesses in Split-Dalmatia County have been certified so far, said the according to Joško Stella, the head of the county tourism association.

Local tourism business organizations are also working on setting up more testing locations for visitors. Representatives of these groups met Monday with Tourism Minister Nikolina Brnjac to discuss the issue. Split-Dalamtia County is pitching their own on-line solution to the problem, an app that helps visitors locate the closest testing site. They say there is no reason why this could not be used on the national level.
