Eight hotels in Bagan region have reopened since 15 June because they already passed the inspection process and met with the criteria set by the Public Health Department, said an official from the Directorate of Hotels and Tourism (DHT Bagan-branch). To be able to resume the hotel operation, the regional government has issued the 57-point rules that the hotel owners must follow. At present, 22 hotels in Bagan region have applied for reopening and are under inspection as to whether they abide by the 57-point rules or not. After being inspected, the inspection team submitted a report to the regional government for the latter to be able to grant resumption of the hotel operation. Now, only eight hotels have been permitted to resume their businesses. The hotels in Mandalay Region were inspected for reopening at the end of May. The hotels in Bagan and Mandalay need to undergo inspection in line with the health and workplace protocols announced by the Ministry of Health and Sports and the Ministry of Labour, Immigration and Population, stated the Directorate of Hotels and Tourism. The inspection team was composed of the officials from the Ministry of Health and Sports, the Ministry of Labour, Immigration and Population, the Ministry of Hotels and Tourism, the General Administration Department and Myanmar Hoteliers Association (Mandalay Zone). Then, the regional government grants permission to reopen. There are about 400 hotels, motels and guesthouses in Mandalay Region. However, the regional government shut down these hotels, motels and guesthouses and closed the tourist areas on 6 April to prevent further spreading of coronavirus pandemic.—Aye Maung (Translated by Hay Mar)
