Tourism Brantford is delighted to announce that it has been awarded the #SafeTravels Stamp. The Safe Travels Stamp is an international symbol designed to allow travellers to recognize governments and companies around the world, which have adopted health and hygiene, standardized protocols – so consumers can experience ‘Safe Travels’.
Upon reopening in July, Tourism Brantford implemented new health and safety measures at the Brantford Visitor & Tourism Centre so that visitors will feel comfortable coming into the building and learning more local activities and attractions. Contact tracing, social distancing reminders, plexiglass boundaries, and increased cleaning of high touch points are implemented to keep staff and visitors safe, while still allowing for friendly interactions. Brochures on Brantford and surrounding areas are available upon request and the Tourism Counsellors can provide helpful tips to help you plan a fun day or weekend in Brantford. As with all public indoor spaces in the City of Brantford, masks are required to be worn at all times inside the Brantford Visitor & Tourism Centre.
“We are delighted to confirm Tourism Brantford has been awarded the #SafeTravels Stamp”, says Beth Potter, President & CEO of the Tourism Industry Association of Ontario. “Across Canada, tourism businesses big and small are doing all they can to offer Canadians the perfect vacation. More and more Canadians are looking closer to home to escape from the challenges of and rediscovering their own provinces.
When they see the ‘Safe Travels Stamp’ has been awarded to the destination or hotel they’re planning to visit they will know that they are upholding the highest standards of health and safety and demonstrating they are adhering to the global health protocols issued by the World Travel and Tourism Council (WTTC).”
Brantford is a small community that has worked hard to reopen almost all tourism related businesses after the initial closures due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Many attractions are offering social distanced tours and virtual events to welcome individual comfort levels while still providing fun and entertainment. Restaurants and retail shops have adjusted their layouts and capacities so that they can continue to provide products and services to their consumers with little or no interruptions.
