As part of our Return to Travel series, this week we are sharing an extensive collection of mitigation measures to apply in a variety of travel situations. As travel increases, travel disruptions such as civil unrest, crime, terrorism, and natural disasters are returning to the forefront of concerns being reported and tracked. Remaining informed and situationally aware cannot be stressed enough, and whether you are heading across town, cross-country, or out of the country, we encourage you to equip yourself with updated information as a first step for any travel.
Today's Focus - Mitigating Measures to Apply for Civil Unrest:
Research historic locations for civil unrest
Avoid large crowds, which have the possibility of turning violent and may also serve as a catalyst for COVID-19 spread
Allow extra time to travel to/from the airport, destination, and accommodations
Avoid travel after dark, when civil unrest tends to escalate
Prepare for disruptions caused by protests, such as increased traffic/security, blocked roads, and potential travel into demonstration sites (i.e. airports, highways, government buildings)
