If you are an older adult or live in a household with a serious chronic illness, you should consider passing COVID 19 on to others during your trip. If you fall ill with CO VID 19 after returning from a trip, your household contacts can also pose an infection risk. These people are at high risk of becoming very ill and there is a high probability that they are older adults or have serious chronic illnesses. Sources: 2

Practice 3-W for now and This applies to travel as well as public places such as hotels, restaurants and public transport. If COVID 19 spreads in the US or abroad, the CDC recommends that everyone wears a fabric face mask and covers their nose and mouth. This slows the spread of COID 19 by helping to prevent the spread of the virus to other people. Sources: 5

Currently, most people in the US have little immediate risk of being exposed to the virus. The CDC recommends travelers avoid contact with sick passengers and wash their hands frequently. Due to the way in which air is filtered in aircraft and the type of air traffic in general, most viruses and other germs do not spread through the air. As a result, the risk of infection from air travel has been low in recent years, with only a few cases of respiratory infections. Sources: 1

Symptoms include fever, cough and shortness of breath and can occur between 2 and 14 days after exposure. You may have to stay in a place of self-determination – quarantine – for up to 14 days after your arrival. Sources: 1, 3

If you are at serious risk of disease from COVID 19 onwards, you should reduce your chances of being infected with the virus. If you are travelling to areas with few doctors or hospitals, avoid going to communities as often as possible. Those who enter the community should wear face masks, wash and disinfect their hands frequently, and avoid contact with people with respiratory diseases such as coughing, sneezing, vomiting and diarrhea. Sources: 3

There are several things to consider when deciding whether a trip there is safe. If COVID 19 is extended to your destination but not to your place of residence, there is no high risk of you being exposed to danger from there and there are no other travellers with it. Overcrowded travel environments such as airports increase your risk of being exposed to CO VID 19, as do crowded hotels and other public places such as hotels, restaurants and bars.
