For those who do travel for urgent or essential purposes, TBDHU strongly encourages individuals to be vigilant in all measures to reduce their risk of COVID-19 while they are away, including avoiding social gatherings and limiting their interaction with others. For individuals who are essential workers, including those who travel as part of their work, they should follow their employer’s policies if they are returning to work within those 14 days or for staying safe when traveling for work. Essential workers should still follow the recommendations for staying at home when outside of work hours.
“With the rise in case numbers in many jurisdictions, travel is not advisable and should be for urgent or essential reasons only. Hosting visitors from other areas is also not advisable and should be limited to essential reasons.” Said Dr. Janet DeMille, Medical Officer of Health. “Our updated travel recommendations provide direction to people who travel to reduce their risk. In doing this, they also protect their communities”
