Wanderu - Face Masks

Stay Safe While Traveling

If you choose to travel, you have the responsibility to do your part in keeping yourself and your travel mates safe. Here are some simple tips to help you do just that:

Always wear a mask – Face coverings are the most effective way to curb the spread of Covid-19 when you are in close proximity to other people. That’s why, we highly encourage you to wear a face mask for the entire duration of your journey. In fact, many bus & train carriers will not let you on board without a mask on, so please have one on.

Maintain physical distance – Most carriers are currently running at reduced capacity to allow for social distancing between passengers. If that’s not the case on your trip, look for any empty rows available before sitting next to a fellow passenger, unless you are traveling together.

Don’t travel if you feel sick – If you are experiencing Covid-19 or flu-like symptoms, please refrain from traveling and contact the carrier to cancel or postpone your trip.
