The latest health information
Our policy for new and existing bookings in destinations which are marked as safe by WHO
As destinations reopen and lockdown restrictions are lifted gradually, we aim to slowly restart hosting experiences in some of our cities starting June 2020.
See the guidelines below and note that each of these is subject to local city, are and country policies (see full list with links below). We intend to:
- Host experiences in the cities where lockdown restrictions have been lifted and the warning levels are minimal.
- We follow the WHO and local government’s health and safety recommendations at all times.
- Our hosts are receiving weekly updates, training and are required to follow our policies in compliance with the WHO and local government’s health and safety recommendations.
- Hosts and guests must check their temperature max 6 hours before the start of the experience and certify that the temperature is below 37.3C. If the body temperature is above 37.3C the experience will be cancelled (see Our policy for travelers with existing bookings above)
- For outdoors experiences, hosts and guests will be required to keep a safe social distance of minimum 1.5 meters from each other at all times (refer to the local governments guidelines as social distancing rules varies by city and area).
- Guests and hosts are required to carry a mask with them at all times. Read the WHO advice for the public: When and how to use masks for further details.
- On public transport, when entering indoor places, or when walking through particularly crowded areas, hosts and guests must wear a mask.
- The best way to prevent the spread of infections and decrease the risk of getting sick is by washing your hands with plain soap and water, advises the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Washing hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds is essential, especially after going to the bathroom; before eating; and after coughing, sneezing, or blowing one’s nose. If soap and water are not available, CDC recommends consumers use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol. City Unscripted provides the hosts with hand sanitizer and hosts are required to carry hand sanitizers and use them regularly if there's no access to soap and water (every 30 minutes as a minimum). If you don't have hand sanitiser with you, the host will recommend places where hand sanitizer can be purchased.
