Destinations prepare for return of tourists

Stefan Sack, a German citizen living and working in Shenzhen, Guangdong province, usually spends the summer vacation making several excursions in Europe with his family.

However, this will not be possible this year due to the COVID-19 pandemic, even though many European countries have started to ease containment measures to enable the tourism industry to recover.

"I am not planning to go back to Europe this summer, not only because of the coronavirus situation there. I also have concerns about travel restrictions imposed in different countries," said Sack, general manager of a factory employing 2,500 workers.

"These restrictions and social distancing recommendations would also mean that the holiday would be unlike those we had before the emergence of COVID-19."
