In such scary and unprecedented times, although travelling isn’t recommended, it can at times, be necessary and urgent. So if you have to travel despite the spread of the virus, here are some tips that you should keep in mind to protect yourself effectively.
Wear a mask at all times
Since you are going to another place and will meet new people, you must wear a mask at all times. You can also follow double masking to protect yourself and others from this deadly virus and stay safe and healthy.
Ensure cleanliness and hygiene
Wherever hotel you decide to stay in, make sure that the place is well-kept, hygienic, and clean. Ensure that the rooms are regularly sanitized and that the place follows proper precautions and rules. The same thing goes for restaurants that you decide to eat at, during your visit.
Try your best to avoid crowded areas. Don’t go out during peak hours or visit places that you know will be crowded at all times. Maintain social distancing and stay at least 6 feet away from other people.
Keep a pocket sanitiser with you
Since you will be touching commonly-touched surfaces such as lift buttons, handles, knobs, etc. it is best to always keep a pocket sanitizer with you. Don’t touch your face or eat anything without sanitizing your hands.
