COVID-19: EU Guidance for the progressive resumption of tourism services and for health protocols in hospitality establishments.

  • Posted On: 13 May 2020
 European Commission has set out guidelines to allow the resumption of tourism so that people may be able to stay in hotels, eat in restaurants or go to beaches safely in the coming months despite the coronavirus pandemic.

According to documents seen by Reuters on Wednesday, the EU executive also wants EU governments to take into account personal considerations to allow people to visit family and loved ones who live in different countries in the European Union.

The Commission is also proposing that its restrictions on non-essential travel to the 26-nation Schengen zone should be extended by 30 days to June 15.

From the President of Wattrain: “When this is over..."

  • Posted On: 13 April 2020
A member of Wattrain’s Board perfectly expressed our feelings: “When this is over... and who knows when that will be, WATTRAIN's role will be even more essential in helping our members and the wider heritage railway sector to recover from what are bound to be serious financial implications”.

Covid-19.. A Message from WATTRAIN's Board of Directors.

  • Posted On: 13 April 2020

WATTRAIN can continue to function behind the scenes as we are all well spaced out,two in Australia, two in USA, one in Italy, three in the UK and one in Argentina. We communicate via the internet so we pose no risk to others.

 

During these unprecedented times, all we can advise our Heritage Railways and Tramways worldwide

is to follow the advice of your Governments and help prevent the transmission of this dreadful virus.
