This week, the Globus family of brands – consisting of Globus, Cosmos, Avalon Waterways and Monograms – announced important updates to its pre-trip Health & Safety Protocols including proof of COVID-19 vaccines, a negative test result or virus immunity in order join its tours, river cruises and independent vacation packages in North America and abroad.
“The health and safety of our travelers is our number one priority,” said Scott Nisbet, CEO of the Globus family of brands. “We have continued to enhance on-trip safety standards throughout the pandemic to ensure we’re ready to welcome guests back to travel when the world is ready. Today, we’re unveiling new pre-trip requirements.”
Travelers are now required to offer Globus family of brands’ personnel one of the following printed and/or digital verifications upon arrival:
- Proof of COVID-19 vaccination at least 14 days prior to travel
- Proof of a negative COVID-19 test (NAAT/PCR or antigen) result within 72-hours of travel
- Proof of recovery from a confirmed COVID-19 diagnosis within three (3) months of travel
Without one of these verifications, travelers will not be able to join a planned vacation with Globus, Cosmos, Avalon Waterways or Monograms.
In addition to unveiling new COVID-19 parameters required at the start of each vacation departure, the Globus family of brands announced that they will facilitate – and cover – additional COVID-19 testing, if required, for guests to return to their home country, as well as tests on trip if guests show symptoms.
These new protocols will take effect in April.
