Is it safe to travel for holidays now?
The spread of the Omicron variant and a surge in COVID-19 cases have raised concern about traveling over the holidays.
Health experts offered the following advice.
WHO CAN TRAVEL SAFELY?
Experts said people can proceed with travel plans provided they are vaccinated.Vaccinated individuals who are immunocompromised or traveling with unvaccinated children should assess their tolerance for risk and their plans upon arrival.That includes checking the vaccination status of people you will gather with.
WHAT ABOUT UNVACCINATED PEOPLE?
Unvaccinated individuals should not travel and should get vaccinated as soon as possible. Unvaccinated people who must travel should get tested both before and after their trips.
HOW CAN I MINIMIZE CORONAVIRUS RISK?
Experts said that holiday activities pose more risk in large crowds, indoors and in poorly ventilated spaces where the virus spreads more easily. People should gather outdoors, wear masks and perform rapid tests before meeting unvaccinated family and friends and before returning to work .Social distancing both indoors and outdoors is recommended.
WHAT ABOUT INTERNATIONAL TRAVEL?
Many countries have advised against travel to Mauritius, many parts of Europe, South Africa and several other countries. Check current recommendations before travelling.
