COVID-19 UPDATE

- Canadians are advised to avoid all nonessential travel
- Canadians currently outside the country are advised to return to Canada. An emergency fund has been created to help Canadians overseas get home by commercial means
- Anyone arriving in Canada, or who has arrived in the last few days, must self-isolate at home for 14 days
- Commercial airlines are not letting passengers with symptoms board planes to Canada. If you are Canadian with symptoms outside of Canada, contact the government for support

“Let me be clear: if you are abroad, it’s time for you to come home." - Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.

Stay safe, everyone 💙 If you have loved ones arriving home and going into self-isolation for 14 days, they will be grateful for grocery deliveries. Give them a call to welcome them home and ask if there are any essentials they need (e.g. toilet paper, medications, pet food).

DrugSmart Pharmacy (@bedrugsmart) delivers prescriptions and OTC medications for free, anywhere in Canada. Visit BeDrugSmart.ca/virtual to get started.

A best friend and travel companion 🐶 They are excited just to be along for the ride. Anyone else like to take their pup with them on adventures? ✋ We sure do!

Travel health is not only for humans! While we don't offer pet consults, you should make sure your vet has given your dog a clean bill of health before you leave and it is also important to look into the risk of rabies and tick-borne illnesses at your destination(s).

Got travel plans? What to consider during the coronavirus outbreak, from health to insurance

Before you decide whether or not to travel, consider:
1) Canadian government travel advisories for the area(s) you'd be visiting
2) your own personal health
3) what precautions you can take to stay healthy
4) your own comfort level and tolerance of risk

For those considering cancelling a trip, it’s important to keep in mind that fear alone of a rapidly spreading disease is not covered under most travel insurance

Handy advice for travellers, too!

Handy advice for travellers, too!

Washing your hands is the best thing you can do to prevent the spread of respiratory viruses. Make sure to get those areas that are often missed - fingernails, backs of hands, between fingers, and thumbs!

Going on vacation amid the coronavirus outbreak? Here’s what to know

"You can travel anywhere you want to go as long as you're prepared to do it, and preparation comes with knowledge."
- Irfan Jetha, Travel Health Now CEO talking to Global News on Tuesday.

With the COVID-19 virus outbreak spreading to new countries and Dengue fever outbreaks in the Caribbean and South America, Canadians are wondering whether it is safe to travel at the moment. Our response is that if you look at travel advisories for your destination and take the recommended precautions, you can certainly stay healthy while abroad.

We recommend booking a travel health consult 4-6 weeks before your trip to get the information you need to confidently explore.

Health Canada recommends that Canadian travellers don't buy medication in other countries unless they have been advised to do so by a health care professional. Medications in other countries may not meet Canadian Drug Standards, and in some places there is a risk of being sold counterfeit drugs. It is best to plan ahead and leave Canada with the medications you'll need.

• Take an extra supply of medication in case you are away longer than expected
• Even though it goes against space-saving instincts, carry all medication in its original packaging so customs screening goes smoothly
• Pack the original prescription with your medications while travelling
• If you have a lot of medication with you, consider asking your doctor for a note that explains why you need it
• It is illegal to carry cannabis across the border, even with a medical prescription
• It is always a good idea to check what drugs are illegal, unavailable, or require prescriptions in the countries you visit

You may need the Japanese Encephalitis vaccine if your trip will last more than a month, depending on where you are going in Thailand and what time of year you are traveling. You should also consider this vaccine if you plan to visit rural areas in Thailand or will be spending a lot of time outdoors, even for trips shorter than a month. We can help you decide if this vaccine is right for you based on your travel plans. 🌴 #confidentlyexplore | photo by @velascarlos
