The holiday season has arrived, and this year’s festivities will be rather different as we continue to fight against the health, social, and economic emergency created by Covid-19. Staying home and limiting travelling remains the best defence against the virus, but many still have to travel home to visit family or for business purposes.
It has been almost a year since the novel coronavirus infiltrated our daily lives. The past year has been extremely challenging, with limited time to socialise or travel. Many enter the festive season with the hope of reconnecting with family and enjoying a short holiday break to relax before the new year commences.
The travel and tourism industry has been one of the worst affected sectors because of travel restrictions imposed due to the pandemic. To help rebuild and boost the tourism sector; the Department of Tourism is encouraging people to explore their country while adhering to strict Covid-19 protocols. After differentiating lockdown levels, and months of restriction on our movements, many folks are eager to be out and about exploring again.
Should you choose to travel, you can do so wisely and safely by making a few adjustments to meet the evolving health and safety measures required during a pandemic.
