  • Avoid close contact with people and maintain 6 feet distance between you and others as much as possible.
  • Wash your hands frequently with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after being in a public place or the bathroom, before eating, and after coughing, sneezing, or blowing your nose.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
  1. Research about the place where you are going

So, there is a higher tendency for people to catch the virus inside the airport but fortunately according to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention most viruses do not easily spread inside an aircraft because of how the air circulates their and how it is filtered.
  1. Consider the place where you will be staying
    Hotels are a place to gather and there are a lot of things that are shared and reused by visitors after visitors so staying in a hotel might be a little risky but you can still check in a hotel if you have no other places to go just make sure that the place that you are going to be staying at have implemented risk-reduction protocols, such as requiring guests and staff to wear masks in public areas, shutting down common areas and disinfecting rooms when guests leave and arrive.
  1. Consider the activities that you will be doing
    Make sure that the activity that you will be doing in your trip will give you enough space to social distance to lessen the risk of getting the virus. Avoid planning an activity that will make you go near other people.

So, if you have decided to go on a trip make sure to take into consideration this tips and always remember that as person who is travelling you are not just responsible for yourself but also to the people around you because if you catch the virus you can spread it to your loved ones when you return home.
