Tourist spots, hotels, motels and resorts in Bandarban will be opened on a limited scale for tourists from tomorrow, after a five-month closure due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
"After around five months, tourism and relevant businesses of Bandarban hill district will be allowed to open from tomorrow while maintaining the health guidelines strictly," said Md Mahbub Alam, additional district magistrate of Bandarban.
The district administration took this decision at a meeting on Thursday, he said.
"We have prepared guidelines and health directives in line with the government's instructions to ensure the safety of tourists," he said, adding that action will be taken if anyone violates the instructions.
All hotels, motels and tourist spots remained closed from March 19 as per decision of the district administration following the coronavirus outbreak in the country.
Over one hundred establishments catering to tourists and thousands of workers in the sector remained almost idle since the closure.
