CORONAVIRUS COVID-19 UPDATE
All of us at Summitour Travel Agency hope that you and your families are safe and well.Like many of you, we continue to put off our dreams of traveling, a little longer. As of July 31, 2020, the airport in Havana remain closed to international arrivals. However, the Cuban government has announced a phased plan to allow tourists back to the island, however, no dates have been announced. To keep everyone safe and to ensure safe passage for all of our guests, we’ve suspended tours through October 31. We are looking forward to resuming operations November 1, once all safety and wellness protocols have been established.
We’ve been in constant contact with our partners and friends in Cuba. Like us, they too are sheltering at home with their loved ones, their livelihoods temporarily on hold. We’ve shared the many good wishes of our past and future travelers, and true to the Cuban spirit, and despite many hardships there, they are sincerely concerned with their friends in the U.S. and wish to convey their thoughts of well-being and safety, with you.
Cuba, has implemented many of the same precautionary measures implemented around the world to minimize the spread of COVID-19 including social distancing, restricting travel to the island until further notice, and closing schools. Additionally, Cuba has deployed its national health services to local communities around the country with reports of medical volunteers going door to door to check temperatures and provide guidelines for residents to stay healthy. By all accounts, they have minimized the impact of COVID-19 on the population.
At the end of the day, I believe this crisis will bring us together and make us stronger as a global community. Because we’re all in this together.
Stay safe and healthy,
Summitour Travel Agency Team.
