No question about it, people will travel after coronavirus is over. But how to stay safe when traveling and avoid COVID-19 contagion?
If you are looking for how to travel safely after Coronavirus ends, there are a lot of practical steps you can take.
· Wear a mask
· Regularly wash your hands (with soap and water or an alcohol-based hand gel), especially after direct contact with ill people or their environment.
· Avoid touching eyes, nose and mouth and keep a social distance of 1 meter minimum.
· Avoiding close contact with people suffering from acute respiratory infections.
· Travelers with symptoms of acute respiratory infection should practice cough etiquette (maintain distance, cover coughs and sneezes with disposable tissues or clothing, and wash hands).
Choose stable well-known brands
Stay away from too-good-to-be-true offers from unknown operators. Chances are, these are fire sales from desperate companies on the verge of bankruptcy. Focus on well-known brands that are financially stable.
Get a travel insurance
It’s important to read all the fine print and understand what trip insurance does and doesn’t cover to ensure that you’ll receive a reimbursement.
Be ready to make some last-minute changes
This is a fast-changing situation so be ready to rearrange your travel plans according to the last Coronavirus updates. Even if you travel to an area without an outbreak, you should be prepared for the possibility of being quarantined if an outbreak develops in the region where you’re traveling.
Traveling is good for the soul but, especially in this case, it must be good for health too. We all need a holiday after this long Coronavirus lockdown, but we will need to be more careful than usual to travel safely after Coronavirus is over.
