When we'll travel Again!
A few destinations have begun taking the first steps at reopening their cities to domestic travelers, including hard-hit Italy, and several states in the U.S. Even a few national parks like the Grand Canyon and Yellowstone have opened back up. Experts say a few things need to happen before air travel can return—and note that some health precautions might be permanent. Many expect travel bubbles to dictate where we go in the months to come.
How coronavirus is impacting the travel industry
The impact of this pandemic has been felt in every corner of the travel industry. And yet, despite the strain placed on the hotels, airlines, cruise ships, and destinations that are no longer receiving visitors, these players have also been quick to react and adapt accordingly. In many cases, the industry has stepped up to help as well.
Destinations are closed and major events are canceled
As entire countries and cities have closed down, so too have historic landmarks around the world—from the Eiffel Tower in Paris to Disney parks throughout the world. Disneyland Shanghai was the first of the parks to reopen this week, hopefully providing a road map for U.S. parks. Some of our favorite bars and restaurants have also shuttered for good; some small business owners say it could take until next spring to reopen. The Tokyo 2020 Summer Olympics have been postponed to 2021, with a new opening ceremony date already announced. Throughout it all, the CDC Museum in Atlanta is avidly documenting the pandemic for future generations.
