COVID-19 travel guide

Travel safe

Traveling, especially in the time of COVID-19, has inherent risk. We’ve compiled travel guidelines from health organizations around the world to help you make informed choices and reduce your risk when you travel.

This list is not exhaustive, and there might be special precautions you should take based on your personal health history. Please consult your health provider. It's important that you do your own research and make your own determination about whether travel at this time is right for you.

Wash your hands often

You've heard it before, and it bears repeating. Wash your hands frequently and thoroughly for at least 20 seconds with soap and water. If soap and water are not readily available, use a hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol. Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.

Wear a face mask

Clean your hands with alcohol-based hand sanitizer or soap and water before putting on a mask. Make sure your mask covers your mouth and nose and make sure there are no gaps between your face and the mask.

Avoid touching your mask while you're using it. If you have to touch it, make sure you clean your hands with alcohol-based hand sanitizer or soap and water afterwards.

Practice good coughing and sneezing etiquette

If you're not wearing a mask, cover your mouth or nose with a flexed elbow or use disposable tissue and discard it immediately after use. Make sure you clean your hands with alcohol-based hand sanitizer or soap and water after you cough or sneeze.

Keep your (social) distance

Maintain at least 6 feet or 2 meters (about 2 arm lengths) distance between yourself and others around you.

Avoid traveling if you don't feel well

If you have a fever, a cough, difficulty breathing, a sore throat, or recent changes in your ability to taste or smell, medical professionals recommend that you not travel. If you get sick while you're traveling, stay put and follow the advice of local officials.

Bring backup supplies

If you take medication, medical professionals recommend you bring enough to last you for the entire trip, keep medication in original packaging with label intact, and have prescription paperwork with you.

Consider packing your own alcohol-based hand sanitizer (at least 60% alcohol) and keeping it within easy reach. But also remember that some airports or airlines may have limitations on volume of liquids you can carry.

Bring a mask or other face covering to wear in public places. Consider bring back up masks or face coverings, too.

Bring non-perishable food items and water bottles for your trip in case restaurants and stores are closed. Again, keep in mind that some airlines may limit carry-on food and beverages.

There's a lot to keep in mind as you consider your options, but the right time to travel will come again. When you’re ready, we'll be here to help you discover new destinations.
