Extenuating circumstances due coronavirus (COVID-19)
The World Health Organization (WHO) declared the outbreak of coronavirus, known as COVID-19, to be a global pandemic on March 11, 2020.
Since then, the outbreak has evolved rapidly and various policies and travel restrictions have been enacted by local, regional and national governments around the world to slow the spread of COVID-19.
Helping travelers to experience the world is our vision and we understand that in these extenuating times it is difficult and may not be possible.
We hope the Explorist Platform can still offer inspiration and help future travelers to discover all that the world has to offer while many of us are sheltered in place. But we urge everyone to follow their government’s guidance and policy, observe social distancing, and stay healthy.
When the pandemics are over and the world opens up again, Explorist will be here to show you the best experiences around the world.
