As case numbers begin to drop and summer nears, travel is likely to become commonplace again. Even with case numbers down, it’s important to remain vigilant, no matter which country or region you’re visiting. Below is a list of our top tips for traveling safely during the pandemic. Bon voyage! 


Assess Case Numbers 

Before you book a vacation abroad, research the COVID case numbers both at home and at your prospective destination, and find out if there are any travel advisories in place. If cases are particularly high in your country or the country you plan on visiting, then you may wish to wait to book your trip. Not only could a high case count increase your risk of contracting and spreading COVID, but it could also lead to a change in travel restrictions, as other countries have been known to bar entry to nations with surging COVID cases. 


Get Vaccinated

The best way to travel safely during the pandemic is to get vaccinated. COVID-19 vaccinations are free in Canada and the majority of the population is now eligible. If you’re thinking of traveling abroad, before you leave is the ideal time to receive your first, second, or third dose. Unvaccinated travelers might not be allowed to enter certain countries, and if they are allowed to enter, will likely require a negative COVID test in order to do so, which could be expensive. 


Fly with a Mask

Mask mandates are constantly changing, but when you’re in a crowded, enclosed space for hours on end, such as when you’re on a plane, it’s best to keep your face mask on. This minor inconvenience could mean the difference between contracting and spreading COVID and staying healthy. 


Check Local Testing Requirements

Before you book your trip, research the local testing requirements at your destination. Many countries still require a negative COVID test in order to enter, Canada being one of them. Find out if the countries you’re traveling to and from require a negative test and the type of test that must be taken. 


Keep yourself and others safe this spring and summer by exercising caution when traveling. We also suggest signing up for the L.I.T. First Aid and Lifeguard Training courses to learn important first aid skills and CPR that could save your life, in the event that you or a loved one gets sick while traveling.
