What to Know About Booking Travel Right Now

Many nations are enacting more stringent travel restrictions or travel bans, and new policies are being implemented daily. The IATA is also maintaining a comprehensive country-by-country list of Covid-19 restrictions on travel.

Most commercial airlines have reduced routes because of the pandemic. In addition, several hotels, restaurants, and attractions around the world have closed to avoid large gatherings.

It’s uncertain when travel restrictions will lift completely. If you’re considering a trip, make sure to check cancellation policies before booking. The following resources are a helpful place to start.

What to Do When Returning Home From a Trip

Travelers returning home are advised to self-monitor for symptoms for 14 days and follow their country’s national protocols, which may include self-quarantine for the incubation period.

Common signs of infection include shortness of breath, breathing difficulties, fever, and cough. In more severe cases, it can lead to pneumonia, organ failure, and death.

If symptoms do occur, travelers are advised to seek medical care and inform healthcare providers of their symptoms and their travel history.

For more information, visit the World Health Organization’s (WHO) COVID-19 Resources hub or the Centers for Disease Control’s (CDC) COVID-19 and Travel hub.

How to Help Slow the Spread of COVID-19

COVID-19 is mainly spread from person to person through respiratory droplets when an infected individual speaks, coughs, or sneezes at close range

The CDC has also advised against touching a high-contact surface (such as door knobs) and then touching their own mouth, nose, or eyes, though this is not thought of as being the primary way the infection is passed.

There is currently no vaccine against COVID-19. Here are some things you can do to help fight the spread of COVID-19. The WHO recommends:

  • Washing your hands regularly with an alcohol-based sanitizer, or with soap and water
  • Maintaining distance six feet of distance between yourself and anyone who is coughing or sneezing
  • Avoiding touching your eyes, nose, and mouth
  • Seeking medical care immediately if you are showing symptoms
