  •  Regarding cruise ship vacations, because the virus can spread quickly due to the close contact between passengers, the PHAC is recommending Canadians avoid traveling on cruise ships. Visit for more information.
  • While travelling, there are everyday actions that can reduce exposure to germs to protect your health: 

          ~ Clean your hands using soap and water or alcohol-based hand sanitizer (minimum 60%).

          ~ Avoid touching your face. 

          ~ Avoid shaking hands and use alternative greetings instead, including head nods or waves.

          ~ Cover coughs and sneezes with a tissue or sleeve; get rid of used tissues immediately in the garbage and clean your hands. 

          ~ Keep a distance of 2 metres from those showing symptoms (e.g. cough).

          ~ If you are feeling ill while travelling, stay away from others/crowds and do not use public transportation. Seek medical attention.

          ~ Masks are only recommended for those with symptoms (e.g. cough, fever).
