The world is facing a crisis due to the outbreak of the Corona pandemic. Life as we know has changed, travel restrictions have been imposed, and managing daily life has become eminently different.
As COVID -19 is evolving and in the absence of a permanent cure for this virus, the World Health Organization recommends following a comprehensive precautionary approach and guidance in supporting travelers before departure and upon arrival. General advice for travelers is to always wear a mask, use hand sanitizer, and always practice good hygiene. Maintaining a physical distance of at least one meter is a must as well.
Travelers who are ill and people at risk, including elderly travelers and people with serious chronic diseases or underlying health conditions, should delay international travel to and from areas where there is community transmission.
We do not know how the travel industry will recover, or when will the countries begin lifting their travel restrictions.
According to Bloomberg News, what we know is that traveling will be fundamentally different. Airlines, airports, cruise routes, and hotels will need to develop their services and adhere to new guidelines on social distancing, cleaning, sterilization, and catering services.
