The Covid-19 pandemic has struck global travel over the last few months. While it is advised to limit all non-essential travel, what to do if it’s an important trip that is unavoidable?
At Trip Experience Blog, we bring you some precautions that you must follow while travelling in a post-Covid world. Take a look:
- Wash your hands frequently with soap and water, for at least 20 to 30 seconds, especially after accessing public spaces. If you took the flight to your destination, never forget to wash your hands after leaving the airport.
- Always keep a hand sanitizer with you. In case you don’t have access to soap and water, you should use a few drops of the sanitiser gel and rub it on your hands, to keep them virus-free.
- Avoid touching your face with unwashed hands, especially when you have been to a public place. The novel coronavirus can stay on surfaces for hours after they have been touched by an infected person. It can easily spread to anyone who comes in contact with the infected object.
- The symptoms of coronavirus disease are similar to common flu or cold. So, if you see someone is coughing or sneezing, stay at least three feet away from that person.
- Stay in a place with good hygiene and cleanliness. If you must stay in a hotel during your travel, book a trusted and hygienic place. It’s always better to ensure your room is thoroughly cleaned.
- Avoid crowds, since they are a major source of infection during the coronavirus outbreak. If it is absolutely necessary to visit such places, make sure your nose is covered with a face mask.
- Make it a habit of researching about the Covid-19 situation in the country or city you are visiting. Always check what the government officials are advising in the country/city and abide by the instructions.
- In case you develop any Covid-19 related symptoms, seek medical help immediately so that you don’t further spread the virus and infect other people. Isolate yourself and stay quarantined for a minimum of 14 days.
The world is changing due to the Covid-19 pandemic, and so must we. Stay safe, stay healthy!
