The travel opportunities which are scheduled between June and October 2020 that are shown below (and were in last month's newsletter) remain uncertain due to the COVID-19 virus situation.  Anyone who has signed up for any of those trips should check with the tour provider(s) as to the status of the trip and any potential cancellation of it.  In addition individuals who may be considering cancelling such a trip or are concerned about trip interruption and/or travel health insurance provisions should also check with their trip insurance provider in the event that such coverage may be terminated in the near future by the insurer (as is happening elsewhere).
