The Coronavirus situation is constantly evolving. I recommend that you monitor the State Department for travel restrictions and check the CDC’s latest reports. These will help guide you to make the best decision based on your comfort level and travel plans. Currently there are 4 countries on CDC's travel advisory list: China, South Korea, Italy and Iran. You will also note there are numerous destinations with no travel restrictions nor cases of Coronavirus. If you do travel in and around impacted countries, be prepared to follow the CDC’s recommendations for health screenings and quarantines.
Please note that no travel insurance company is covering cancellations for Coronavirus as it's now a named epidemic/pandemic. There are Cancel For Any Reason (CFAR) policies which will reimburse you for a portion (up to 80%) of your travel but these are also being amended (ie no CFAR option) or the coverage is being reduced to 50% in terms of Coronavirus. However, some policies are still providing coverage for emergency medical care and emergency medical transportation claims due to COVID-19. CNN did a great article which succinctly answers many questions on trip insurance coverage for Coronavirus but it's best to confirm specific policies with the insurance carrier, such as Allianz. I can certainly help with trip insurance and specific policies based on your needs.
For clients with travel plans over the next few months, I'm closely monitoring the situation not only through CDC but also with my travel partners on the ground to get real time updates so I can provide you with as much information as possible for you to make an educated decision.
Making the decision of whether to travel or not is a deeply personal choice. Please know I am here for you if you have any questions or concerns regarding your travels. You can also contact me to further discuss travel, Coronavirus, and you.
