Here are some updates from this week…

Here’s some of what we are watching this week

  • Canadian travel restrictions remain in place and the Mandatory Isolation Order is extended to November 30th
  • Rapid Covid – 19 testing has begun at Calgary airport;  with the goal of shortening and then perhaps alleviating the required isolation period.  Ottawa is also investing in a project at Toronto Pearson, and there is some domestic travel testing happening in Vancouver as well
  • Air Canada Rouge has returned to the air
  • The CDC’s “no-sail” order has expired and cruise lines are working to abide by the stringent rules that accompany their ability to open up.  This is going to be a process that requires many steps and tests along the way, resulting in a certificate that will allow the cruise line to resume sailing.  From the outside, this is looking like a marathon, not a sprint.
  • The UK has banned leisure travel thru December 2nd.  This includes a mandate that hotels be open only for work-related trips and other exemptions to the ban
  • Costa Rica and Machu Picchu have re-opened, along with many destinations in the Caribbean and Mexico.  All destinations have requirements and protocols, many of which are evolving.
