Coronavirus (COVID-19) information & travel advice

The COVID-19 pandemic continues to cause significant disruption to all forms of transport around the world. With countries closing their borders and imposing rigid travel restrictions, many transport operators are operating at reduced capacity or even halting services at this time. 

Given the fluidity of this information, we strongly recommend you refer to the relevant transport operator for real-time schedule information together with your own government travel advisories to understand the latest travel guidance.

Rome2rio will continue to display regular schedules and transport information so you can plan your next trip for those better days ahead.

What is COVID-19?

COVID-19 is a zoonotic virus which means it was spread from animals to humans. COVID-19 is a part of the wider Coronavirus family which in the past has included other zoonotic viruses such as SARS and MERS. Common symptoms caused by COVID-19 can include fever, cough, shortness of breath and breathing difficulties. In more severe cases, an infection can cause pneumonia, severe acute respiratory syndrome, kidney failure and even death. For more information surrounding COVID-19 refer to the World Health Organisation (WHO).

How can I stay safe?

The World Health Organisation (WHO) recommends following the below measures to protect yourself and others from spreading the virus:

1) Wash your hands frequently
2) Maintain social distancing of at least 1 meter between yourself and anyone who is coughing or sneezing
3) Avoid touching eyes, nose and mouth as these are the common areas in which the virus can enter your body
4) Practice respiratory hygiene by carrying around tissues, covering your mouth and mouth with your bent elbow when coughing or sneezing and disposing of used tissues immediately
