**We don't encourage travelling during a global pandemic, ultimately whether your travel is essential for you is decision you make for yourself. But many of you have reached out with questions so, for curiosity's sake.. here is what we know as of 07/14/20**
🙋🏼♀️ Btw this is Sydney, if we haven't met, here's my Coles Notes (or Sparks notes if you're American). I currently live in Atlanta, Georgia 🇺🇸 and have taken 4 domestic flights since lockdown began... (Actually 5 if you count the DAY they announced lock down and I got on a flight home to ATL by the grace of god with no identification... another tale for another time 🥴)
Plus, having a couple of friends who have travelled internationally successfully and unsuccessfully. I'm gonna tells ya what we know below.
Domestically Travelling: (Within 🇺🇸)
Cross Border Travel: (🇺🇸 ↔️ 🇨🇦)
Travelling to Europe: 🇪🇺
Keep in mind, travelling anywhere greatly increases your chances of contracting COVID, as well as the continual spread of the virus. Also, if you were to contract it abroad know that insurance will most likely not cover your expenses, and consider the quality of medical care in the countries you plan to be in.
For example, friends of mine have a trip to Jamaica for this fall they plan to keep. It is legal for tourists to go to Jamaica but the rules so far state they must take a COVID test upon landing and quarantine for 48 hours until the results arrive. If results are negative, you are in the clear to enjoy their vacation. But- if the test comes back positive you cannot fly out and will have to endure the virus in a Jamaican hospital (luckily I've never had to go to a hospital there, so I can't comment on their health care system but just be aware that you could be somewhere with care much different than you're accustomed to!)
Hope this was helpful and answered some queries. All this info was gathered by word of mouth and personal experience. If you travel across borders often you'll know the decision of whether you're granted entry ultimately falls upon the customs agent you get paired with at the border - can be a bit like Russian roulette 😅 If you have any information not mentioned here, or if you have questions or found this helpful please comment below!
And if you do need to get somewhere essential, we wish you a very SAFE journey. Wear your masks and wash those hands! 👽♥️

The Love Affair Collection stems from a personal Tale of Two Cities. Mainly because it involves a character named Sydney, a couple cities and tbh it rly was "the best of times, it was the worst of times, it was the age of wisdom, it was the age of foolishness".
I made this collection for other Canaliens who may have left part of themselves in another city, too. I feel ya! Be proud of your nomad-icity.
