Traveling in Times of Coronavirus

Do you have a Cambodian trip report you want to share? Post it here, and feel free to link to your blog if it's a travel blog for Cambodia, South East Asia, or anywhere really. You can ask and answer questions about travel advice in Cambodia or just share your pictures and videos with us. Most people who live in or visit Cambodia have also checked out nearby countries like Vietnam, Thailand, Laos, Myanmar, Malaysia, Indonesia and the Philippines, and you can get to most of these countries by traveling overland, so put any travel plans, reviews or questions here. Discussions about dirt bike trails in here as well.

You gave more than a reason why nobody should be travelling unless really necessary.

Going to self isolation in Australia, I landed on gold coast, no mask provided couldn't buy one , proceed to domestic wait for plane to Sydney domestic crowded nobody wearing mask, board plane full, arrive catch train to central station, wait on crowded platform 20 minutes catch train to my home walk from station to home though shopping center arrive home.

Once home I now cannot leave must stay away from family, neighbors get food delivered for 14 days

I've followed the instructions but to late how many people have I had contact with getting to my home, we should be picked up at airport buses as a group to an isolation place for 14 days I'm feeling somewhat pissed of with the lack of action from governments around the world they're seen whats happening and have dropped the ball in my opinion, giving rise to skeptics that there is an underling agenda

I've got no symptom of the virus so far
You (and I) are in the majority. No symptoms, might have it.

Why would anyone purchase a ticket to anywhere now?

so, you are blaming your government for not having a chauffeured ambulance pick you up and take you to your private quarentine from the airport?
And everyone was supposed to have government issued N95 masks too?
Your story proves Darwin's theory.
Your blaming others and your government seems to be the new generations answer to everything.
At least you are aware of the Wuhan chinese virus and not in a crowded Italian airport a month ago.
You made an informed choice to place your health in jeopardy...
As opposed to all the Italians who had no idea that thousands of infected chinese from Wuhan came over in December and January and spread the virus across the country...
I think President Trump should send his private plane with an incubator to pick me up in Siem Reap..
Oh, I forgot.
I am self quarantining here with my wife and we have been stocking up for weeks .

Not so, according to your link to Singapore Airlines, passengers can still transit through Singapore airport as long as they have not visited or transited through the following banned countries: Mainland China, France, Germany, Italy, Iran, Republic of Korea, Spain. Otherwise,you can still fly through Singapore if you don't leave the international zone.

I've re-read my link and I don't see reference to the above.

My Singapore Airlines link: Last updated 22 March 2020, 1745hrs (GMT+8)

Your ICA link: Updated as of 21 March 2020

One of them is wrong or not updated then..

I could be wrong, but I think that they/we are not talking about the same thing - mine is about passengers transiting through Changi airport, and your link refers to "short-term visitors" who enter or transit through Singapore.
Singapore to bar short-term visitors from entering or transiting through Singapore in view of heightened risk of importation of COVID-19 cases
2020-03-22
The Singapore government has announced that it will bar all short-term visitors from entering or transiting through Singapore, in view of the heightened risk of importation of COVID-19 cases into Singapore, will now not be allowed to enter or transit through Singapore.

This will take effect from Monday (23 March 2020), 2359 hours.

Minister of National Development and coronavirus multi-ministry taskforce co-chair Lawrence Wong at a media doorstop on Sunday (22 March) said, “These are significant moves, especially for a small, open economy like Singapore that has always been connected to the world”.

He added, “I can understand, Singapore is attractive and people want to be here… but for every visitor that comes through, for every work pass holder that comes through, they take up resources,”

“During this time, we need to focus our resources on returning Singaporeans because they are coming back in large numbers,”

Previously, except for a handful of countries, short-term visitors from elsewhere were allowed to come into Singapore, save they were issued a 14-day Stay-Home Notice (SHN) upon arrival. This meant, however, that resources were being expended to serve and enforce SHNs on them, and if they fell ill, to provide them with medical treatment.

According to Ministry of Health, there were still 533 short-term visitors arriving in Singapore on Saturday.
