2020 has brought on a unique set of challenges that our industry wasn’t quite prepared for. As a community, we can come together to help everyone so that we can return to some type of normal.
The only way this will happen is if we collectively stop the spread of COVID-19 and prepare our frontline emergency workers for any kind of pandemic outbreak. Besides being good for humanity it will also be for Bali and returning to the tourist paradise full of world Travelers, where our businesses thrive.
