Travelling During The Coronavirus Outbreak (Covid-19)

The outbreak of COVID-19 continues to evolve and travellers may have questions regarding their travel plans and the best way to prepare and protect themselves from exposure to the new virus.

Did you know?

  • Contrary to popular belief, most viruses and other germs are not easily spread on airplanes due to the way air is circulated and filtered?
  • The CDC has three classifications for travel destination: Warning level 3, Alert level 2, and Watch level 1; and these classifications determine whether you should postpone/cancel a nonessential trip.
  • On cruises, the most important steps to take are avoiding close contact with an infected person and disinfecting possible contaminated surfaces. 
  • The CDC does not recommend that travellers wear facemasks to protect themselves from COVID-19.
