Although many communities are still under strict stay-at-home restrictions, travel is slowly starting to pick up again. It looks like we may finally be able to travel, albeit with strict precautions in place. When airports and other transport systems finally open their doors to the public, it is crucial to know how to stay safe and avoid contracting the deadly coronavirus. Here are some of the safety precautions you can take to ensure you travel safely during this period.
Before you head out to catch a flight or bus to your destination, you must get tested for the coronavirus. People exhibiting symptoms of coronavirus can’t travel since they are a danger to public health. Ensure that you get tested and have the necessary paperwork to avoid inconveniences while travelling.
Make a List of Necessary Items
As you travel, you will need a few items that will help you to maintain a certain level of hygiene to prevent you from catching the coronavirus. These items include hand sanitizers, disinfectant wipes, face mask, and tissues.
Mind What You Touch
Coronavirus has been spreading at an alarming rate, and this calls for a heightened sense of caution, especially when travelling. It’s essential to be cautious when touching surfaces that other people have used. As you travel, avoid touching your face, eyes, or nose unless you have thoroughly cleaned or sanitized your hands.
Keep Your Distance
It would help if you tried to minimize human contact as much as possible. Stay at least one meter away from people, especially if they are coughing, sneezing, or show other flu-like symptoms.
