Update on travel health precautions

February 28, 2020


Greetings 11th World Wilderness Congress delegate!

It is with great excitement that we anticipate your presence in Jaipur where committed leaders from around the world will gather to address the dual emergencies of climate breakdown and mass extinction, and jointly pave the way for a future that is safe for all life on Earth. WILD11 continues as planned for March 19-26, 2020.

As you prepare for the Congress this March, we encourage you to follow the CDC’s everyday preventative actions to help you stay healthy:

    • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
    • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth.
    • Stay home when you are sick.
    • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash.
    • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces using a regular household cleaning spray or wipe.
    • Follow CDC’s recommendations for using a facemask.
      • CDC does not recommend that people who are well wear a facemask to protect themselves from respiratory diseases, including COVID-19.
      • Facemasks should be used by people who show symptoms of COVID-19 to help prevent the spread of the disease to  others. The use of facemasks is also crucial for health workers and people who are taking care of someone in close settings (at home or in a health care facility).
    • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after going to the bathroom; before eating; and after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing.
      • If soap and water are not readily available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol. Always wash hands with soap and water if hands are visibly dirty.

While there is no Coronavirus outbreak in India, we encourage all travelers to adopt standard traveling precautions. For more information please consult cdc.gov or you own government’s health ministry.

As you make travel plans for Jaipur, be sure to:

See you in Jaipur in March!
