10 June 2021

Albena Resort became the first resort on the Black Sea coast and in all of Bulgaria, which received a sticker "100% vaccinated". The sticker was prepared by the Ministry of Health and today was presented and symbolically pasted by the Minister of Tourism Stella Baltova. Prior to that, the caretaker Minister, together with the Chief State Health Inspector Dr. Angel Kunchev and the Director of the Regional Health Inspectorate - Dobrich Dr. Svetla Angelova got acquainted with the anti-epidemic measures in the resort and visited the temporary vaccination center there.

At the moment, Albena is the only complex that has found a successful solution for providing accommodation for quarantined contact persons in case of detection of a person infected with COVID-19. Minister Baltova visited the designated villa part, where people, despite the isolation, will be able to continue their vacation and enjoy their holidays. The quarantined will be accommodated in separate villas, where they will receive the necessary assistance, ready meals or will be able to prepare it themselves.

During the visit it also became clear that the central unit’s staff of the complex is 100% vaccinated and the average percentage for all staff is 75%. The aim is for it to become 80% by the beginning of July, and for entire hotels to be 100% vaccinated. For today, the number of vaccinated in the resort is expected to reach 140 people, among whom there are both Bulgarian and foreign workers on an employment contract with the status of permanent residents. On-site vaccinations are also available for guests who wish to vaccinate.

Currently, the complex has 6 open hotels, and by the end of the week the number of guests is expected to reach 4,000. In addition to Bulgarian tourists, many Romanians, Ukrainians, Czechs and French are staying in the accommodation.

"We are where the best example in Bulgaria is," said Minister Baltova and shared her excellent impressions of the incredible harmony that reigns in the Albena complex, as the measures taken are unobtrusive but tangible. According to her, every stage of the tourists' stay is designed so that they feel safe and protected, but at the same time enjoy their vacation.

The Chief State Health Inspector Dr. Angel Kunchev also expressed his good impressions of the preparation of Albena for Summer 2021. "Please do as Albena", he called on the entire tourism business in our country.

Dr. Kunchev announced that Bulgaria has submitted a request for participation in the European fund of 100 million euros for the provision of free tests at border crossings at airports for entry and exit of tourists from the country.
