Rangamati’s attractive tourist complex has been reopened on Monday after being shut down for 137 days due to coronavirus.
Srijan Bikash Barua, manager of Rangamati Tourism Center, said, “We have decided to open the tourist center to a limited extent by following health guidelines as per the advice of DC.”
As tourist centers have been launched in different places including Cox's Bazar and Chattogram, so most attractive tourist complex of the district has been reopened, for the time being, for the visitors in compliance with the hygiene rules on a limited scale, he also said.
He added that the tourist center was shut down on March 18 due to the Covid-19 epidemic. “Rangamati Tourism Corporation has faced a loss of Tk one crore in the last four months,” Srijan Bikash Barua informed.
Now that the tourist complex has been reopened, it will be clear how many tourists will come or not at all depending on the situation in the next few days. However, no one will be allowed to enter the tourist center without social distance and mask, said the manager of the tourist center.
Rangamati DC AKM Mamunur Rashid said, “The tourism manager came to me and talked to me about opening the Rangamati Tourism Complex. I told him to open by following social distance and hygiene. I also told that no one should go there without a mask.”
