Travel Is Possible

Whether you want to stay closer to home or want to see Europe and fly further afield – you can absolutely travel. And really, if you follow the guidelines, stay safe and be smart there’s never been a better time to travel than right now.

Many of the countries and territories re-opening to tourists require a negative COVID-19 PCR test within 48-96 hours (depending on the country.) Some require a quarantine period, either at your hotel, apartment, or at a government facility.

Be Safe, Be Smart

Travel doesn’t mean throwing caution to the wind. Give others their space even if they don’t demand it. Giving them space also keeps you and your family safe too. It’s just good general hygiene practice to wash your hands frequently. Keep mindful of interactions and touchpoints like restaurant credit card machines, handrails, TSA trays, door handles, and seatbelts.

CDC Travel Guidelines

The Center for Disease Control has issued guidelines for travelling. Some of the guidelines are just good tips and things to follow regardless of the threat of COVID-19. From the CDC:

If You Travel

During your trip, take steps to protect yourself and others from COVID-19:

  • Avoid close contact by staying at least 6 feet (about 2 arms’ length) from anyone who is not from your household.
  • Wash your hands often or use hand sanitizer (with at least 60% alcohol).
  • Avoid contact with anyone who is sick.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth.
