It is remarkable how much life can change in such a short time.
The outbreak of COVID-19 has changed the face of travel on a global scale. Governments and communities around the world are taking stronger action to limit the spread and flatten the curve. Orders for staying at home, complete lock downs, and states of emergency are quickly becoming the norm. Our government has issued a level 3 avoid all non-essential travel advisory for all international travel and just recently, the long awaited Oberammergau Passion Play performances have been postponed until 2022.
History has shown us that in times of great stress the global community can work together to overcome any challenge. Now is the time to look beyond our borders and strive for the protection and advancement of humanity. We must all do our part to overcome this incredible challenge in front of us.
Let’s all do our part to limit the spread and protect each other. Wash your hands, avoid large gatherings, and if your contribution to flattening the curve includes staying home then please do so. For those contributing as essential workers, we are extremely thankful for your services and fully recognize that your efforts will help lead us on a quicker path to safety. We are all in this together. And we will get through this together – with the help of some very special, very essential people.
I want to personally thank everyone who has reached out to Craig Travel, sending well wishes and messages of support, over the last several weeks. It means more to our staff than you could possibly know, as we continue to navigate through this challenging situation.
Although we remain six feet apart during this process, we can still reach out with love. Call a friend or family member to see how they are doing. Share a smile and a wave when you see others. Embrace the tools and technology that can help you stay connected. Be the light, love and kindness you desire to see in the world.
We have every hope and belief that we will overcome this great challenge and once again be able to enjoy the great freedoms, we as Canadians, have that allow us to experience our world. Please keep yourselves up to date on government advisories and let’s all work together.
President, Craig Travel
