Definitely Coronavirus is impacting our lives in many ways.
We are learning to be more proactive in taking care of our health and that includes:
We have to be aware that our actions affect others and that is in our hands to prevent spreading this virus. Let’s become a responsible citizens.
As a travel advisor I had to deal with clients feeling afraid to travel, clients looking into their trip insurance policies and clients canceling their trips.
Rest assure that my first concern is your well-being and health. I am closely monitoring all the development on regards of this virus. I will never recommend you travel to a destination that is not safe to you and your family. I will be the very first one on suggesting you to change your itinerary, reschedule your trip or cancel it.
I work with trusted tour operators that has the same vision and care for my customers and many of them are changing their cancellation policies to accommodate the traveler's needs.
Sandals for example has introduced a year-long no- penalty policy for valued guests that decide to revise a booking due to concerns related to COVID-19 (for 12 months from the original date of travel.)
Don't rely on what the media is portraying; there is too much sensationalism and media hype instead of true facts.
There are two places where you can find trustworthy information about the virus and one of them is the CDC and WHO . They update their information day by day so is your best source to keep yourself informed and to make decisions base in real facts.
Do not let this pandemic disease stop you from living your life in full. Be cautious and follow the recommendations of The CDC but keep up with your normal life as much as you can.
