Staying Safe During Summer Vacation

Summer is here once again, which means sunny days, hot weather, and of course, a well-deserved vacation. Unfortunately, this year we are faced with COVID-19, which will make each of us think about the way we travel. Below are a few ideas on how to stay safe this summer during your travels, as well as guidelines for airplane travel from the Government of Canada.

Anticipate Travel Needs

  • Bring enough of your medicine to last the entire trip.
  • Pack enough alcohol-based hand sanitizer (at least 60% alcohol) and keep it within easy reach.
  • Bring enough disinfecting wipes for everyone in the family to use during the trip.
  • Bring a cloth face covering to wear in public places.
  • Prepare food and water for your trip. Pack non-perishable food in case restaurants and stores are closed.

While Traveling

  • Wear a cloth face-covering in public.
    • While in an airport or on an airplane, try to keep your face covering on at all times.
  • Wash your hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds or use hand sanitizer that has 60% alcohol prior to taking off your face covering or mask.
  • Avoid close contact with others by keeping 2 meters of physical distance from others whenever possible.
    • If you’re on the beach, follow current beach capacity guidelines and set up your towel and umbrella away from others. 
  • If you’re pumping gas, try to wear gloves when touching the pump and the gas nozzle.
    • If you have no gloves available, you can either wipe down the equipment with a disinfecting wipe or use hand sanitizer after handling.
  • Pick up food at drive-throughs, curbside restaurant service, or stores and eat meals in a public place away from others or in your hotel room. 

Flying Requirements

As of March 30, 2020, all passengers flying in Canada will be subject to a health check prior to boarding. You will not be permitted to board if you:
  • Show any symptoms of COVID-19
    • If you have symptoms of COVID-19, you will not be allowed to board any flight until 14 days have passed or you present a medical certificate confirming that your symptoms are not related to COVID-19.
  • Have been refused boarding in the past 14 days due to a medical reason related to COVID-19
  • Are subject to a provincial or local public health order
Wherever you’re going this summer, make sure to have fun and stay safe!
