TripsGuard

An online tool that informs countries’ restrictions due to the coronavirus

Precautionary measures to slow the spread of the coronavirus are not the same in all countries, and they change frequently.

So if you want to know what are the restrictions in force in a certain country, you will have to look in the tab created by Google with updated information in the search engine, or resort to options such as TripsGuard.

It is a website that offers information that may be of interest to travelers or those who want to return to their countries. It shows relevant information such as the restrictions of each country, if the borders are open or the permanence requirements.

And it also adds additional information on those means and activities that are essential for users when they travel to other countries, such as public transport, places of food, lodging or healthcare. You can search for information on a region by scrolling on the interactive map or using the search engine.

For example, if you search for Portugal, I will briefly tell you that the country is partially open, but only for travelers arriving from countries that are members of the Schengen zone. Or that the mask is mandatory in public transport and that restaurants are open at 50% of their capacity until 11pm.

It also offers statistics on detected cases, deaths, and recovered patients, along with the source that provides that information. All these data can give an overview of the situation in the country and assess whether it is convenient to travel to that part of the world, although it is always advisable to corroborate all the information with reliable local sources.

To do this, you can Google:[el nombre del pas] + coronavirus or COVID-19. And you will see in the results a box Local and national resources with links to see information provided by the national government.
