Local Guidelines

In addition to safety guidelines, preventative health measures such as frequent hand washing and social distancing are encouraged to combat further outbreaks. More restrictive or relaxed guidance, including lockdowns and curfews, may be in effect depending on the region you are visiting. A 'quarantine pass' may be required for movements outside the residence. We recommend keeping up-to-date with official guidelines throughout your trip.
