The District that hosts one of the New 7 Wonders of the World announced that already has health protocols for the resumption of economic and tourism activities. Cusco Region Governor, Jean Paul Benavente, affirmed that the Machu Picchu Citadel would responsibly reopen at the end of this month.


According to local authorities the new protocols will assure social distancing, permanent and correct use of face masks, cleaning, constant hand-washing, and shoe disinfection. They stated that measures will be strictly complied with to prevent the spread of coronavirus in the area.


Peru reopened domestic air and cross-country bus travel last week in order to reignite the economy. Peru’s borders remain close, with the government looking into the possibility of restarting foreign travel in August.
