Stay Informed, Healthy & Optimistic
In the past few weeks, the Coronavirus has presented an unprecedented global challenge that has significantly impacted all aspects of our daily lives, businesses and communities. There is a lot of uncertainty and misinformation being circulated about the virus. We hope to help you stay informed with the most accurate information on the travel restrictions issued by European & U.S. governments. We recommend staying informed with these trusted sources:
- World Health Organization: WHO on COVID-19: COVID-19 Updates from WHO & Advice & Guidance
- Centers for Disease Control & Prevention
- Travel Information and Restrictions: U.S. State Department
The World Health Organization reminds us, “Most people will recover! People with mild illness recover in about two weeks, while those with more severe illness may take three to six weeks to recover.”
