The Covid-19 health crisis has engendered detrimental influences on the tourism industry, generating substantial losses of jobs and economic benefits. In this context, restoring tourism businesses is becoming increasingly crucial for the revival of the economy. Nevertheless, during the pandemic, the invested interests of tourism sites can be somewhat contradictory to the interests of the local governments, which focus more on containing the virus transmission. Facing this dilemma, this study aims to review the interests of tourism sites and governments. Based on our analysis, it is found that their interests can be mediated through appropriate policy-making. Consequently, an array of recommendations to reach a win-win situation for both parties are put forward. This study would practically contribute to the management of the tourism industry during the pandemic and theoretically shed light on the application of interest-based theories in the social governance field.
