, as well as other tourist attractions located in that region, its Governor Jean Paul Benavente affirmed on Monday.
Within this framework, the dignitary said that precisely this Sunday Cusco will receive the seal that recognizes the southern region as a Safe Destination.
Likewise, the governor explained that —in order to receive this recognition— joint efforts were undertaken by the Central Government, municipalities, and the private sector to train officials and implement biosafety protocols.
He said that all tourism sector employees —such as waiters, hostesses, tour guides, artisans, and others totaling 115,000— will also be monitored.
"We will conduct the epidemiological follow-up inspection on all of them in order to avoid an outbreak," he told Andina news agency.
"There is great expectation, and now the tickets are gone; there will be nearly 10,000 tourists who will be visiting Machu Picchu starting November 1," he stressed.
