From the Background: "This document is an update of the interim guidance published on 31 March 2020, which was developed by a review of WHO [World Health Organization] and UNWTO [United Nations World Tourism Organization] guidance documents and internal consultation at WHO, UNWTO and UNICEF [United Nations Children's Fund], based on new knowledge available about COVID-19 [coronavirus disease 2019], including prevention of transmission and the management of suspected or confirmed cases. It is designed to cover hotels and other accommodation facilities of all sizes, including campsites, operating in the time of the current pandemic. Private tourism accommodation providers are invited to follow the operating guidelines. In addition, this document should be helpful for any authority involved in public health--including the International Health Regulations National Focal Point, local health authorities, local, provincial, and national health surveillance and response systems--to respond to a public health event in hotels and other establishments providing accommodation. The present guidance should be used in conjunction with the continuously updated information on the WHO COVID-19 website and should consider the SARS-CoV-2 [severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2] transmission scenario."
