Fit to Travel
All expeditioners will be required to obtain a ‘Fit to Travel’ certification from their doctor before travelling with us within 3 months of travel which outlines any pre-existing medical conditions.
Thermal infra-red scanners will be used to check temperatures for all expeditioners and crew prior to boarding and during the voyage.
All expeditioners will be required to complete a pre-departure questionnaire, 72 hours before departing for your trip and a pre-boarding questionnaire. Expeditioners travelling from or through known high risk COVID-19 affected areas or with acute illness will be denied boarding.
Influenza testing will be available for all expeditioners and crew as required.
Aurora Expeditions has installed onboard the latest Point of Care diagnostic equipment which allows rapid testing of all expeditioners with high levels of accuracy.
All expeditioners will be asked to take a COVID-19 test 7 days before departure from their local doctor/testing facility and present a negative result. The day before or the day of embarkation on the vessel, all expeditioners will be required to undergo another COVID-19 test. Crew will also be required to take a COVID-19 PCR test prior to each voyage.
Once the voyage starts, further testing may be required depending on the voyage length. In the event an expeditioner or crew presents with COVID-19 like symptoms, the person will be tested immediately for both COVID-19 and the flu to ascertain the cause of the illness.
