Traveling during Covid is not risky if you choose the right destination and master the skills to ensure the safety of yourself and your family.
Choose a safe destination
Destination is something that cannot be chosen based on feelings but must be used rationally. It is important that you are informed about the rates and risks of Covid-19 where you are going. Based on the number of Covid-19 cases in the localities, the epidemic prevention policies and the authorities’ ability to handle the outbreak when there is a risk of an outbreak. Knowing where you plan to spend your time is essential to minimizing the risk of your vacation.
Besides, instead of going to crowded amusement and entertainment areas, you should choose more secluded “check-in” spots such as mountains, forests, islands, and suburbs.
Choose the right place to stay
After choosing a destination, the next thing is to choose a safe place to stay. People who come to the hotel come from all regions and around the world. Therefore, even if you go to an area with no or few Covid-19 cases, it is always necessary to carefully check the information.
First, find out the customer and employee protection policy of the hotel or property you intend to book.
Check the website of the hotel or accommodation to see if they have posted essential information to protect customers. For example: Is the hotel required to wear a mask, does it provide masks for visitors, what social distancing measures are taken at the hotel, does the hotel post notices? Regarding the Covid-19 prevention policy, does the hotel leave antiseptic solutions in areas of the hotel, does the hotel perform contactless check-in registration or not…
If you can’t find answers to these questions online, pick up the phone and call the hotel directly to make sure you have the necessary information.
Don’t forget to wash your hands frequently and wear a mask when interacting with strangers
When you arrive at the hotel, always wear a mask and stand at least 1m away from strangers. Even if you are in a place with no Covid-19 cases, don’t forget that the Covid-19 pandemic is still out of control globally. Besides, washing your hands often with an antiseptic solution is never superfluous.
You should also limit access to the gym, swimming pool and spa areas in the hotel. Because these are areas with a large number of common users, the safety distance requirements are not guaranteed.
Strengthen resistance from within
The most important of all is still exercise to improve health. Moderate exercise and micronutrient supplementation are ways for the immune system to become stronger. Especially during this covid season, supplementing with vitamin C is a top priority to increase the body’s resistance from within. You can get vitamin C in many different ways such as: eating fruits containing natural vitamins (oranges, lemons, apples…), drinking fruit juices, using oral tablets…
Keeping the above tips in mind, right now you can pack your backpack and travel without hesitation.
