Touring in Instances of the Pandemic: Sources and Solutions

Travel or not travel: a question that is much harder to answer now as a seemingly endless pandemic ravages the world.

The decision to travel or not is very personal, so I don’t advise here either. It’s up to you to make your own decision, and in all honesty, I don’t even know what to do myself!

One thing is certain, however: a good decision is based on facts and verified information. So I wanted to list here all the sources of information that I have found so far and that I rely on to decide whether or not to travel where and when.

Please note that the information below is intended primarily for Canadians. In addition, the situation is constantly changing (!!). So check them regularly.

Official website of the Government of Canada

The Canadian government advises every country in the world. This information has an impact on whether your insurance covers you abroad. So it is very important to check them out.

It is important to read all the information carefully as notices are sometimes issued for different parts of a country, e.g. B. For a province where travel is very dangerous but the rest of the country is safe.

CDC’s Health Health Notices

On this page you will find the advice from the CDC, Center for Disease Control and Prevention, about your health and the state of Covid-19 in the world.

For example, they will advise you to avoid unnecessary travel to practically any country in the world due to the pandemic (Level 3 alert).

The level 2 notice, ie with high precautionary measures, lists countries where the situation is better controlled and therefore less dangerous for travelers.

Finally, the Level 1 alert “Take normal precautions” also lists countries where there are hardly any cases of Covid-19. And yes, there are countries where it is safer to travel, even now during this pandemic.

IAMAT Covid-19 Travel Rules Card

On this page you will find a world map. By clicking on the countries you can check their own entry regulations, up to a maximum of 10 countries in the free version.

It’s fun that it’s a world map so you can easily see the countries that no one can enter and the ones that almost everyone will accept lol

IAMAT COVID-19 Government Public Health Mitigation

Here you can see the guidelines that have been implemented by countries to cope with the crisis, travel restrictions and required quarantines. For example, we see that in Canada we have to be in quarantine for 14 days after our return from our trip.

I will keep this list updated to the best of my ability so that you always have the complete information on hand! And if you know of any other reliable source, please let me know in the comments section below!
