Tulum, Queensland, Australia’s Gold Coast has been a popular destination for families with children for years, but there have been concerns about safety since the 2015 coronavirus pandemic.
Many hotels are currently closed for renovations, with some resort owners refusing to reopen for the first time since the coronavids outbreak.
But a group of parents and grandparents in Queensland have decided to reopen their hotels after the government announced it would lift its lockout on them.
The hotel industry in Queensland is not immune to the threat of pandemic, as there have also been a number of hotel fires in the last few months.
In the last year, two hotels have burned, killing 11 people.
In the last week, the Government announced a major new safety plan, including a new $5 million grant to provide new air quality monitoring equipment, and a pilot scheme to build more air quality monitors at hotels.
But the hotel industry is also facing some pressure to open again.
There is an ongoing debate within the industry about whether the government should be making hotel renovations mandatory or allowing hotels to reopen if they cannot meet the government’s new standards.
Many hotel operators, including The Royal Hotel Group, are concerned that if the Government relaxes lockout requirements and allows hotels to return to business as usual, they will not be able to meet their obligations to improve air quality, and may be forced to close.
“The Government has stated that the majority of hotels will be reopening as normal, but some operators are concerned they may have to re-open for other reasons,” said Queensland Tourism and the Australian Hotel & Resort Association in a statement.
While the government has announced a new program to provide air quality monitor equipment, the hotel lobby has been lobbying for the Government to allow hotels to rework and reopen if the standards are not met.
At the end of last year it was revealed that the Government was funding a new air monitoring system for hotels.
However, the pilot scheme will not have the air quality control equipment, which will be used to help ensure air quality remains within acceptable levels, and to determine if the hotel has met the Government’s new air standards.
The Government’s latest decision to allow hotel operators to reopen has created uncertainty for hotel operators.
Some hotel owners have expressed concern that they may not be eligible to receive the new equipment and may have difficulty getting new workers to work at the hotels if the facility is closed for renovation.
Queensland’s hotels are also facing a challenge of meeting their own new air standard, which is set to be introduced next year.
This new air measure aims to ensure hotels are operating within acceptable standards and will be a step in the right direction for the hotel sector, but also will cause uncertainty for the industry, according to the hotel association.
It has been claimed that hotel operators will be forced into the new air test if they do not meet the Government-mandated standards, which may lead to some hotel operators closing their doors.
