Tourism is one of the key economic sectors in Tanzania. Over the past few
years, the sector’s impressive growth has enhanced macro-economic
diversification from the traditional reliance on agriculture. Tanzania is
endowed with a variety of tourist attractions categorized into nature and
non-nature based. The existence of these attractions appeals to a significant
number of tourists both from within and outside Tanzania, thereby supporting
the economy. In December 2019 the world experienced an unexpected invasion of
infectious disease caused by SARS-COV-2 virus (Corona Virus Disease-2019
or COVID-19), the disease was declared by WHO as a pandemic on 11th
March 2020. The United Nations World Tourism Organization (UNWTO) and
the World Health Organization (WHO), through a joint statement issued on
27th February 2020 asked countries in the world that, their response to the
outbreak of COVID-19 be measured consistently and proportionately to the
threat posed for public health (put people first).In recognition of the importance of health, safety and security of tourists and
the general public, Tanzania’s tourism industry is presenting detailed protocols
regarding control measures and procedures towards preventing the spread
of COVID-19. The protocols referred to as Standard Operating Procedures
(SOPs) have to be adopted and customized by all tourism entities (companies,
authorities and other related service providers dealing with tourists) to prevent
the spread of COVID-19.
