The health and safety of the community is always our priority. We want to share some advice on what you can do to help.
Dear World Traveler Club members
With all that is going on at the moment, we wanted to get a message out to our valued members.
We understand that the latest news about COVID-19 and the resulting uncertainty may cause to rethink your plans.
Flights have been drastically reduced and widespread closures of public areas are in effect. Italy, Spain and France are under lockdown, and the entire state of California is under a stay-at-home order. The last sailings by many major cruise lines are wrapping up, following a suspension of cruise operations.
For all GOLD and PLATINUM members we would like to give an additional 3 months membership of their levels.
For the free extension of your membership, please contact us here with your username, and we will extend your membership with an additional 3 months.
Traveler-Club is a community of like-minded travelers and together we will get through these uncertain times. It is likely that the impact of the coronavirus will temporarily affect us all, however, the desire to explore the world will never vanish.
We dearly hope deep in our hearts that we will soon overcome these difficulties.
Stay at home:
The most important thing you can do right now is to stay home if possible—this is especially critical if you’re feeling sick. This will help limit the spread of the virus and flatten the curve.
Restrictions to Travel
Many countries have now imposed restrictions to entry for international arrivals, and governments are advising against all but essential travel to some destinations. Please check the official channels of the destination you are scheduled to visit to see if this affects your trip.
If you are traveling, make sure that your destination has not restricted your arrival before embarking on an international trip, keeping in mind that the situation is evolving quickly and new restrictions are likely.
If you have visited or recently returned from an affected area, please check your local government advice and follow their recommendations, self-isolating for the required period of time.
Basic protective measures against the new coronavirus:
Avoid touching eyes, nose and mouth
Why? Hands touch many surfaces and can pick up viruses. Once contaminated, hands can transfer the virus to your eyes, nose or mouth. From there, the virus can enter your body and can make you sick.
Practice respiratory hygiene
Make sure you, and the people around you, follow good respiratory hygiene. This means covering your mouth and nose with your bent elbow or tissue when you cough or sneeze. Then dispose of the used tissue immediately.
Why? Droplets spread virus. By following good respiratory hygiene you protect the people around you from viruses such as cold, flu and COVID-19.
If you have fever, cough and difficulty breathing, seek medical care early
Stay home if you feel unwell. If you have a fever, cough and difficulty breathing, seek medical attention and call in advance. Follow the directions of your local health authority.
Why? National and local authorities will have the most up to date information on the situation in your area. Calling in advance will allow your health care provider to quickly direct you to the right health facility. This will also protect you and help prevent spread of viruses and other infections.
