But, just like everything else, I will take it one step at a time. I will see first-hand, how today's vacationing really feels. Join me along this journey, by following my blog posts over the next few weeks.
You CAN travel safely during Covid-19! Begin by knowing that you will need to be flexible & that there will be extra steps required to make this happen. As if there aren't enough things on my to-do list for a trip already!

Research your destination's entry requirements.
Chances are, you don't have an extra 14 days to spare, being quarantined in destination. So make sure you're visiting a country that will allow you to enter with a negative Covid test, in lieu of that. Of course you'll still need your valid passport with at least 6 months left before expiration, but you may also be required to complete a pre-arrival health form or get mandatory travel insurance, if the country requires it.
Know where you'll be staying.
Get familiar with the new protocols & safety measures being taken. From the airport, all the way to your hotel room, most all-inclusive resorts like the Playa Resorts I'll be visiting in the Dominican Republic, have designed very thorough safety regimes with assistance from health and hospitality agencies. Using proven sterilization techniques, your room and it's furnishings, fixtures and services will greet you with a sanitization seal across your door. Your luggage is even disinfected before being delivered to your room!
Have your passport number and information about your trip handy, and it should take less than 10 minutes to complete.
Watch for my next blog post about Getting a COVID Test for Travel.
The Dominican Republic requires a negative PCR Covid test administered within 5 days prior to arrival, so that's my next step. Leave me a comment if you have any questions. Until next time...pray for peace and a vaccine to end this pandemic.
