Dear Vacations To Go Customer,

There's more good news on the Covid-19 front as new cases in the U.S. are down 73% since the peak on January 11 and cases in Canada are down 67% since the peak on January 9. Click here to see numbers for the U.S. and click here to see numbers for Canada.

The new, one-shot vaccine from Johnson & Johnson was approved by the FDA this past weekend and will be put to use immediately alongside the vaccines from Pfizer and Moderna. Merck will help produce the J&J vaccine and the expectation now is that every American adult who wants a vaccine will be able to get it by the end of May. Prime Minister Trudeau has said that every Canadian who wants the vaccine will be able to get it by the end of September.

Half of Americans age 65 and older have already received at least one dose of a vaccine and that segment of the population is helping to fuel a surge in cruise and resort and river cruise bookings at Vacations To Go.

I apologize to anyone who waited on hold to speak to one of our amazing cruise specialists in the past 10 days.

Since cruises are not yet operating, hotels and resorts are great alternatives for customers looking for a tropical getaway.

To make it easier for travelers to take the required Covid-19 test before returning to the U.S., a wide selection of all-inclusive resort companies in Mexico have arranged for tests to be administered to guests, at no charge, at the hotel. Many companies are even covering the cost of quarantining at the hotel (including accommodations, meals and nonalcoholic beverages) if a guest tests positive. For more information about the CDC's testing requirement, click here.
