Covid has changed the way people live their lives worldwide. Traveling during the pandemic
could be a personal choice.
It is necessary to carefully navigate through a safe road map so that you and your loved ones can enjoy your holiday but at the same time stay secure and healthy.
Here is a five-step travel planning checklist that should be adhered to if possible:-
1) Carefully read all the travel guidelines –
City, states, and countries have different sets of covid protocols that are updated or changed regularly.
Make sure you know what your destination or any other destination you are passing through is asking of travelers.
Many states these days are asking travelers to quarantine themselves for 14 days on arrival.
Therefore, it makes complete sense to check the latest covid guidelines and policies issued
by the place you are traveling to.
2) Consult your physician –
Immunization rates have decreased rapidly during Covid 19 and especially because people have stopped going for their routine checkups during the lockdown.
If you are planning to travel, then you do need to stay up-to-date with your vaccines to avoid contracting any disease.
It is advisable to check with your family physician before you start planning your trip, about your individual risks and essential safety precautions.
Your doctor would be the best person to advise whether you should be traveling or not.
3) Avoid Covid 19 hotspots –
Before you set out to choose your next destination for your travel, it is necessary to check the Covid 19 situation in your plan.
You will also need to be flexible during this time as you may face sudden changes in Covid protocols, restrictions, or guidelines.
Avoid Covid 19 hotspots to ensure you and your loved ones are safe and protected during the trip.
4) Consider location while booking your accommodation –
You will find hotels offering great deals to encourage traveling but do consider the Covid 19 situation while you make your plans.
Remember that hotels have many shared spaces and elevators that may be highly infectious
It could be a good idea to avail homestays during the pandemic.
5) Pack a pandemic essentials bag –
Do remember to stock up on all pandemic essentials before you start your traveling. Staples should include oximeters, hand sanitizers, face masks, hand soap, latex gloves, etc.
