Reading of US news with covid on the rise makes me shutter. Gavin Newsom is the latest in a long chain of vax, and double boosted folks affected.
On our EU tour bus we have mandated masking, and I continue this practice religiously in each store, and hotel lobby. To return to the US a negative covid test is required, and, if positive, where would one quarantine??
I return to the EU in 7 days upon my return. Have a 3 day pre-EU layover in New York City. Crazy, but trips purchased need to be completed, or loose the money. Travel companies have been very patient, and the current trip I am on was purchased in 2019.
My next trip will be to England, then a cruise. Traveling to England no longer requires a covid test. Ship travel requires a negative test result in 72 hours pre-boarding, so have a test scheduled 2 miles from my youth hostel at Lloyd’s Pharmacy in London. What a data mining feat that was!
In the meantime.. will continue to mask-up.
