Planning to Cancel Your Spring Plans Because of the Coronavirus Outbreak?



The novel coronavirus is yet to be at large still and the outbreak continues to spread all over the world and many people are anxious to know if they would need to cancel their travel plans be it business or leisure. 

Spring is coming and one of the most awaited breaks for the students is the spring break.

The departure time is certainly almost so near that people take a crucial amount of time deciding whether they should push thru with their plans or cancel it. 

According to the founder of the global travel agency Embark Beyond, Jack Ezon, “Forty-seven percent of our clients have canceled their original plans.” He also added that March and April are always the busy seasons “Now, the good news is about 73% of those have rebooked in somewhere else.”

So for everyone who is still contemplating, here are some of the tips you may want to consider:


Avoid traveling to countries where there are Level 2 or 3 warnings from the CDC. Some of them include China, Italy, South Korea, Iran, and Japan. 

For now, everything is so fluid that there may be a lot of big changes throughout a couple of days. According to the director of UCLA’s Center for Public Health and Disasters “So, you have to be prepared. You have to follow the news about the country you’re going to before you leave, and be prepared to cancel or to possibly have to self-quarantine when you get back.”

For domestic travel, do some researching before you start traveling “I would recommend checking local public health resources rather than just the CDC website before your trip, I would reconsider visiting areas where there are significant numbers of people under quarantine or where there have been major disruptions.”

Air travel is the least to worry

According to the director “It’s not the plane itself. It’s not even the airport, it’s where you are going that may raise flags.” There may be two scenarios about it – the surface where the virus may still be living and the coughing and spreading of the coronavirus outbreak. Disinfecting and wiping with a sanitizing solution could be done as temporary alternatives.

Head of Project VIPRA (Viral Infection Through Air Travel) also mentioned about aircraft air, “The air from the vent, even with the partial recycling, can be as pure as that in-hospital operation theaters!” He added “The problem does not lie in the air supplied by the airplane. The problem is if someone coughs or sneezes, causing you to breathe droplets with viruses. The air that has not gone through the filtration system is the potential problem.”

Be wary of the crowd

For someone going to the destination with fewer people as compared to some amusement parks, more likely the chances are higher for those parks. “If you’re going to fly to Tokyo and go to Disneyland, that’s a problem.”

Know your health well

Be in the know of what your risks are to stop you from worrying about the coronavirus itself.
