As the Corona virus is one of the most dangerous respiratory diseases that humanity is exposed to, due to the speed of its transmission between individuals and its effect on the lungs as life activities are not as normal as they were before.

This study aims to shed light on the challenges facing the tourism sector in Jordan. With the aim of reaching future plans capable of reviving this sector to face the challenges caused by Corona by measuring the impact of digital awareness announcements on the commitment of tourists to implement health safety instructions related to the Coronavirus. In order to achieve the objectives of the study, a study model was proposed, and then an electronic research survey was conducted for decision-makers in the tourism establishments. Accordingly, 100 questionnaires were distributed and 92 valid questionnaires were retrieved for the purposes of analysis and study on the basis of the structure. Equation modeling (SEM). When analyzing the data, the results showed that health advertisements and educational advertisements have a positive impact on digital advertisements, which in turn raise awareness and health protection for tourists through their commitment to health instructions during their visits to tourist sites and their practice of entertainment programs, and activities. As digital media plays an important role in the lives of individuals as it is the main information key for all individuals, which strengthens its role in spreading awareness of the Coronavirus, and this has been confirmed by the World Health Organization about the role of digital media in quickly reaching the public with regard to any important information to protect them.

There are many studies dealt with tourism promotion in Jordan, and the factors that help in encouraging tourism in Jordan in light of the Coronavirus have been discussed to provide a helping hand to decision-makers in the tourism sector to comprehensively understand the factors that affect individuals, by encouraging them to undertake tourist tours in light of The Corona pandemic. Through the perceptions of the study results, we recommend more future studies dealing with the marketing of digital health advertisements to increase awareness among tourists, which will ensure the reopening of the tourism sectors and alleviate the general health crisis in the sectors affected by closures. Despite the scientific contribution to this research, it suffers from some limitations, represented in the fact that the study is limited in Jordan only.

There may be more comprehensive contributions, in addition to the fact that this study was conducted in a crisis, which may give some indications that are possible To be different in a normal situation.
