Short term actions: Days 2 to 14

Depending on the impact of the event, the 'short to medium term' response time to a crisis can vary for tourism operators. Typically this period can last up to 14 days. However, it could be longer if an operator has been directly affected and the response requires a significant amount of work to reopen the business.

It can also be longer if a business is open but their region or local area is closed for business. For example, if the region is too heavily flooded or fire affected to cater for visitors.

This section provides advice to follow for the period of time your business, region or local area is closed for trade.
