(For tours departing Jan. 1–Dec. 31, 2022)
To help safeguard your health and wellbeing as well as that of your fellow tour members and tour leaders, we are asking all tour members to agree to the conditions outlined in this COVID-19 Health and Safety Pledge. We will send an e-form out to you later this year for you to sign.
☐ I agree that if I test positive for COVID-19 during the 14 days prior to my tour departure date, I will notify Photography Travel Tours and acknowledge that I will not be able to join the tour. I understand that standard cancellation terms will apply.
☐ I agree that upon arrival and prior to my joining my tour, I will be able to present the following: an authentic COVID-19 vaccination certificate showing date(s) and time(s) of vaccination(s) with the final dose having been given at least 14 days prior to my tour departure date. Proof of a booster shot may be required if the initial vaccination is out-of-date. I agree to email a photo of the certificate to Photography Travel Tours.
☐ I understand that I will also need to comply with specific requirements imposed by airlines and/or countries that may differ from the vaccine/testing requirements listed above. It is my responsibility to be aware of and to comply with airline carriers’ and countries’ requirements and present valid documentation for my flight and/or entry.
☐ I understand there may be some restaurants, museums, transportation providers, etc. that require proof of vaccine or a negative COVID-19 test before I will be allowed to enter. I understand that if I do not have the required proof, I will not be allowed entry and I will not receive a refund for any portion of the tour I miss as a result.
☐ I agree to take personal responsibility for my own health and wellbeing while on tour. If I am asked to attest to my health on tour, I will do so honestly. If I show symptoms of COVID-19 or any other contagious illness, I will notify my guide, quarantine myself, and, if requested by Photography Travel Tours, be seen by a health professional at my own expense as a condition of continuing on the tour. I understand that I will not receive a refund for any portion of the tour I miss while properly managing my health.
☐ I agree to follow all safety precautions and health directives set by Photography Travel Tours, or by local officials. I understand that these safety precautions will include maintaining proper social distancing, the use of snug-fitting N95, KF95, KN95, or KF94 masks, which need to cover both mouth and nose(especially while traveling in our rental vehicles and crowded public transportation), regular temperature checks, proper handwashing, the use of hand sanitizer, etc. NIOSH-Approved N95 Respirators provide great protection. Beware of counterfiets. Masks with exhalation valves or vents are not allowed. It is important that the mask is comfortable and fits snugly to avoid leakage. Facial hair can interfere with a proper seal so you may have to shave before using your mask. If your masks are disposable, one-time use, please have an ample supply for the duration of the tour. Cloth masks are not allowed.
☐ I understand that noncompliance with the conditions listed on this COVID-19 Health and Safety Pledge by myself or those traveling with me will result in our party not being able to continue on the tour.
IMPORTANT: Each tour member must complete, sign, and submit this form prior to participating in this tour.
