Travel Restrictions Worldwide

Updated December 18, 2020

O.K., so we officially have two vaccines available to us. But it will take sometime before most people are vaccinated. Also, once vaccinated, you still have to wear your mask and social distance until it’s figured out how it all works. I interviewed Dr. Yvette McQueen and she explains it all.


Be sure to check with your airline, airport and your destination before venturing out on a trip.

You can always check the flight schedules as well to the right.
