When a crisis affects a particular place, it is rarely presented in a way that provides updated information for visitors. Many tourism businesses, not to mention regional and national ministries, are reluctant to announce problems. Scaremongering media kicks in and things go from bad to worse. The consequence for not engaging the public in dialogue during times of crisis diminishes the level of trust for official sources. Said one colleague about a state tourism website that was not updated, “if they are not telling the truth about this, how can I trust anything they say?”
