In Turkey, tourists are forbidden to impose food themselves on the “buffet tables”

Food standards in Turkish hotels, including those operating on the “all-inclusive” system, remained the same, but on the “buffet” food in the plates of customers is now imposed by the staff due to the coronavirus pandemic, the head of the Federation of hoteliers of Turkey Sururi Chorabatyr told.

Russia has resumed flights with the United Kingdom, Turkey, and Tanzania since August 1. From this date, flights to Turkish cities such as Ankara and Istanbul began and starting from August 10, flights to the resorts of Antalya, Bodrum, and Dalaman will resume.

“The all-inclusive system and food standards in hotels remain the same, but the “buffet” now involves more staff who serves food to guests and brings plates with it from the buffet. Dishes and cutlery are disinfected under special rules developed by the Turkish Ministry of health,” the source said.

According to him, the rules developed in the country to combat coronavirus are aimed at maximum protection of tourists from infection.

“The staff has received appropriate training on working in the context of a pandemic. Social distance and masks-of course, there is no escaping this, these rules apply not only in Turkey but also around the world. Disinfection, the markup for compliance of social distances – all already used in our hotels,” said Chorabatyr.

According to the Turkish Ministry of Health, 900-1000 cases of infection with a new type of coronavirus per day have been detected in the country in recent days. In total, since the beginning of the pandemic in the country, according to official data, more than 230 thousand people have become infected, and more than 5.7 thousand have died.
