How Carpathian Ski Resorts Will Work This Winter. Here Are the Covid Rules

2250 0
To visit the ski resorts in Ukraine’s Carpathian Mountains this winter season, customers will have to comply with quarantine requirements. As explained by Ukraine’s Ministry of Health, stays in such locations will be possible for those who have a negative PCR test, a certificate of vaccination from Covid-19, or a certificate of recovery.

The two most well-known ski areas in Ukraine are Bukovel and Dragobrat. The town of Slavske, accessible from Lviv via a two-hour train ride, is also popular with Leopolitans.

It is recommended for staff to check the documents when guests are settling into a hotel or estate, or when they purchase skiing and equipment, or in specially organized centers for checking documents.

After the inspection, the Ministry of Health offers to assign visitors unique marks in the form of a sticker on outerwear or a helmet, which will identify its owner as acceptable. This option will allow you to use other services without additional verification of documents, such as skiing on cable cars, visiting street fairs, and outdoor entertainment.

All visitors must be in personal protective equipment indoors, i.e., masks, and in public areas of the resorts. At the same time, owners and managers of facilities should provide tourists with personal protective equipment, constant availability of liquid soap, antiseptics, paper towels, etc.

We will remind, the Minister of Health Victor Lyashko reported that only vaccinated or proven-Covid-negative visitors will be able to lodge at hotels on ski resorts. 

Later, Chief Sanatorium Igor Kuzin said that ski resorts will operate even despite the «red» zone.
