Your team at Global Traveler is heading westward to attend our second annual Globility Board meeting; subscribers will gather at The Westin La Paloma for two days of meetings and a little time off to enjoy the resort’s amenities. I will be hitting the 27-hole Jack Nicklaus Signature Golf Course — the Hill, Canyon and Ridge courses (three nines) that make up this fantastic golfing experience. Other GT staffers will review the Elizabeth Arden Red Door Spa. When you go to Tucson, you can be sure that business is a pleasure.
Without a doubt, the pandemic changed the role of airports in the travel industry. Hamad International Airport’s role evolved in many ways since the pandemic hit. Now, more than ever, airports are responsible for creating a secure passenger experience. As the gateway to Qatar and the world, the safety and wellbeing of staff and passengers has always been at the core of Hamad International Airport’s strategy.
Tuberculosis is an airborne disease that causes more deaths than any other infectious disease, infecting about 2 billion people worldwide and 15 million in the United States. TB is caused by the bacterium Mycobacterium tuberculosis, which spreads when a person with TB of the lungs or throat coughs, sneezes, sings or talks. The bacterium can float in the air for several hours and can infect anyone who breathes in the contamination. TB is not spread by shaking someone’s hand, sharing food or drink, touching bed linens or toilet seats, sharing toothbrushes or kissing.
