COVID-19 RELATED QUESTIONS AND PROTOCOLS

Like other organizations and establishments reopening to the public, Go Atlanta and Beyond, LLC has put in place protocols to facilitate responsible group travel based on public health guidelines and local jurisdiction regulations. Travelers will be required to take responsibility for their decision to travel and abide by additional requirements. You will receive before your departure the current local and iternational requirements.


Will I need to have had the COVID-19 vaccination to be allowed to travel with Go Atlanta and Beyond, LLC?

Yes, you will need to provide proof of a current and valid COVID-19 vaccination, with the final dose given at least 15 days prior to the start of the tour and you will be required to have your vaccination card with you at all times during the tour. You can send a copy to Go Atlanta and Beyond, LLC prior to the start of the tour.
Please note that guests will also need to comply with specific requirements imposed by airlines and/or authorities in the destination visited, which may be more restrictive than above.  


How will Go Atlanta and Beyond, LLC be assisting with any mandatory testing required pre, during and post travel?

Any testing that is required pre travel will be the responsibility of the guest to organise, as these requirements will be in accordance with airline policies, and the entry requirements of the destination you are traveling to. During your tour, your Tour Director will facilitate any mandatory testing and this will be done with as little impact as possible to your experience. This testing will be at the expense of the guest. Any testing required post travel will again be the responsibility of the guest to organise.


If someone in my group tests positive for Covid-19, who pays for the 14 days of quarantine in a hotel and the associated additional expenses like food, etc?

Go Atlanta and Beyond, LLC requires all guests to have travel insurance to cover situations such as these. Unexpected events can happen when you travel, like an accident or illness during your trip (such as Covid-19), which can bring additional personal risks and costs. We suggest several insurance providers. Please be sure you are covered for the complete dates of your tour and please validate that you have the appropriate level of coverage in the currency for your country of origin, in the following categories: Trip interruption; (to cover the cost of your trip, including air); Trip Delay; Emergency Evacuation/Repatriation; Medical Expenses from illness (covering individual or pandemic event; etc.)


I have already received my vaccination, will I still need to comply with testing?

Depending on the airline you travel with, you may be required to show proof of vaccination and/or testing, and similarly the destination you are traveling to may have specific requirements with regards to the vaccine and / or testing.

What happens if I test positive on my pre-travel PCR test?

We require all guests to have travel insurance to cover situations such as this. If you test positive on your pre-travel PCR test, you should self-isolate and delay travel as symptoms may well develop, or until you have recovered from COVID-19. You will be unable to join your tour with a positive PCR test and we recommend you contact your local health department and health care provider. If you decline travel insurance, you will be required to sign our "insurance denial form" and you will be responsible for all cost.


What happens if I test positive on my trip?
- If a guest shows COVID-19 symptoms, testing will be required.

- If a guest tests positive while travelling with us, your Tour Director  will follow a specially designed protocol as follows:
- First, they will notify the local health department of the country you are in to initiate contact tracing for the locations your tour has visited prior.
- All guests will be tested at a certified COVID-19 testing facility.
- Those who are cleared as fit-to-travel may continue the tour.

We require you obtain travel insurance to cover situations such as these. Please be sure you are covered for the complete dates of your tour and validate that you have the appropriate level of coverage for Trip Interruption; (to cover the cost of your trip, including air); Trip Delay; Emergency Evacuation/Repatriation; and Medical Expenses from illness (covering individual or pandemic event; etc.)
