Bali Hotels Association (BHA).
Travel agencies, hotels and event organisers have been issuing updates and warnings on the coronavirus situation. We, the Bali Hotels Association (BHA), wanted to update those thinking of traveling to Bali and those in the hospitality industry on the situation here related to the novel coronavirus outbreak in China.
The World Health Organisation (WHO) declared the novel corona virus a public health emergency of international concern, as this would allow the WHO to better coordinate the international response and hold nations to account if they overstep the organisation's standards -- which may pertain to travel, trade, quarantine or screening.
To date based on reports from the Bali Department of Health, there are no confirmed cases in Bali. Preventative measures have been in place for quite some time to alleviate any risk of the novel corona virus spreading in Bali.
The BHA has maintained close contact and communications with the Bali Department of Tourism and Health and all member hotels have enacted strict controls to guard against any risk of contamination. The best source of current and accurate information on the novel corona virus is WHO. BHA is checking with WHO regularly to ensure that they have the latest facts on hand.
The Chinese Government recently imposed a ban on tour groups travelling overseas and the booking of flights and hotels abroad to try to stem the spread of the virus, forcing thousands of Chinese tourists to cancel their plans.
The situation remains a challenge for many in the industry worldwide. The risk to travelers outside of China is actually quite minimal.
