ABSTRACT

Background:

The Go To Travel campaign in Japan was launched to subsidize travel and accommodation costs for tourists through vouchers that could be used at domestic destinations. We examined the relationship between using Go To Travel and infection prevention behaviors.

Methods:

We conducted a cross-sectional study of 26,637 workers who responded to a large-scale questionnaire survey about COVID-19 under the pandemic in Japan. We undertook logistic regression analysis.

Results:

Among the 26,637 participants, 7,959 (30%) used Go To Travel. Compared with non-Go To Travel users, we observed statistically significant differences in multivariate analysis with Go To travel users for the following gargling (odds ratio [OR], 0.91;95% confidence interval [CI], 0.87–0.97;P = .001);room ventilation (OR, 0.94;95% CI, 0.88–0.99;P = .017);and washing hands (OR, 0.94;95% CI, 0.89–1.00;P = .036).

Conclusions:

We observed the tendency for Go To Travel users not to implement some infection prevention behaviors. It is necessary to continue the encouragement of applying infection prevention behaviors implementing such travel support policies as Go To Travel during COVID-19 could spread the risk of infection.
