When Will It be Safe to Travel Again?
As some parts of the world start to slowly open up, the future of travel is most certainly on travel lovers’ minds! With countries still in lockdown and borders closed, people are wondering when it will be safe to travel again. And even more so, everyone wants to know if they can even start planning. At least, this way, there is something to look forward to.
We’re not saying it is safe to travel now, it’s not. And we don’t know the exact date of when it’s going to be safe. Nonetheless, we’re going to do our best to advise you and give you some hopeful information to help you dream of your next trip.
Useful Tips and Advice
First of all, we advise you, if you have the opportunity, to postpone your trip. Don’t cancel, just hold on and book it for example for next fall, or even next year.
We recommend, for now, that you enjoy your country, your city, and most importantly, your local businesses, restaurants, small shops, and even hotels.
Go for a small trip, avoiding airplanes, with your family to some places in your country. Never, ever forget your face mask. This is a new reality and it doesn’t have to be necessary an ugly or boring face mask. Come discover the most stylish ones! Don’t forget also to maintain a six-foot (or more) distance from other people when possible, and to wash your hands.
We also advise you to avoid big crowds. There are so many health benefits of enjoying nature, and of course, the risk is lower outdoors. Until now, there’s no evidence that we know of that you can catch COVID-19 from water, so low-capacity swimming pools or a dip in the sea are good for now.
More to Love:
For now, it’s advised that anyone who travels to or from global hot spots, must remain in quarantine for 14 days. So, if your planning to go to any of these places, be sure to take into consideration these days and book your stay accordingly.
In addition, if you’re planning to rent a house, or go to a hotel, be sure that the place has been cleaned according to public health guidelines. If you go to a hotel, avoid the elevators and take the stairs. This way you can also exercise – a great away to boost your immunity system.
We will travel again, I promise. It’s just a matter of time! Keep your eyes on these websites for more information: Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), World Health Organization (WHO), and State Department.
