Feeling apprehensive about COVID-19? By taking precautions, it is possible to explore the world safely. It is important to consult the COVID-19 guidelines for your destination as well as recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Make sure vaccinations are up to date, carry proof of vaccination (required in many places, including restaurants), wear a mask, self-monitor for symptoms, and test before and after travel.
The most important thing: get out! Travel fuels passions and sparks inspiration, which is what everyone needs.
