The COVID-19 pandemic has had a massive impact on the tourism industry, with travel restrictions and other health measures having a severe effect on the sector. But while the industry has taken a major hit, there is hope that tourism will eventually return to pre-COVID-19 levels. Governments and businesses around the world are working hard to ensure that the necessary safety protocols are in place to allow for the safe resumption of travel. With the right measures in place, it is possible for the tourism sector to recover and even thrive in the coming years. With travelers eager to explore the world again, there is a real chance that tourism could reach pre-pandemic levels in the near future.
