In order to support tourism industries operators in the State affected by the Covid-19 pandemic, Kelantan government has provided special allocations of RM50,000.
State Unity, Culture, Heritage and Tourism committee chairman Major (Rtd) Datuk Md Anizam Ab Rahman , said RM500 to RM1,000 will receive special one-off aid to artists, hotel operators, tour guides and tour boat operators.
“The assistance to tourism industry operators will ease their burden following the Covid-19 outbreak as they depend solely on domestic tourists.
“For the first phase today, we have allocated RM238,000 that will be given to 155 recipients while the second phase will be distributed in early April,” he said.
Anizam further said that interdistrict travel is a timely break for tour operators to continue their business activities and tourism in line with established standard operating procedures (SOP).
“On weekends like yesterday, we can see most hotels and tourist spots filled with domestic tourists. But what is important is that we need to comply with the SOP outlined by the government, if we feel feverish, have cough or feel unwell, we should not visit these places,” he added.
