Thankfully, the majority of Europe has now taken very positive steps to delay the spread of this virus and therefore we are much more positive about getting things back to normal in the not too distant future.
At home in France, all our schools are now shut and we have all been asked to take precautions for at least 3 weeks. It is likely that we will be advised to stay at home in the next couple of days and all but essential business and travel will stop for a short time, in order to definitively contain the virus.
At the moment there are no cases of coronavirus in or around Chamonix Mont Blanc, but nevertheless we are all following the current advice from the government. We are able to use the mountains to ski, hike and snowshoe and hope that this will continue.
We realise, however, that our clients visit us from all over the globe, so here are some updated resources to help you make informed decisions about your travel plans.
We recommend your own government’s travel advisory service information for your destination country:
UK, the FCO Travel Advice
Ireland, the Department of Foreign Affairs
USA, the State Department Travel Advisory
Canada, use Travel Advice & Advisories
Australia, the Smart Traveller Information Service
New Zealand, it’s SafeTravel.
Here is a roundup of the most up-to-date travel restrictions related to the COVID-19 pandemic.
