7 Necessary Tips to Stay Safe While Traveling during this pandemic

1. Create an inventory list

Some things that you should always carry in your pocket while voyaging. Your list should include a hand sanitizer (with more than 60% alcohol content), disinfectant wipes, tissues, and a face mask. These things can help you maintain hygiene and prevent contact with disease-causing respiratory droplets.

2. What you touch, be mindful

You would have read that the coronavirus has been spreading at a fast rate. This merits a heightened sense of being cautious. It’s important to remember when using devices or touching exterior things that others have used too, such as ATM, doors, escalators, and the like. Use a generous amount of sanitizer whenever you touch any of these surfaces and be careful not to touch your faces and any part of the body.

3. Reduce contact with human

Wherever possible, try to rely on technology. within the airport don’t touch any type of food and retail outlets and common surfaces. keep distance minimum of 6 feet from a human. Try to pay using a digital payment option this is the better option, don’t use cash because’ the risk of spreading the diseases with cash is higher.

4. Prioritize window seat

It is not up to you to choose your seat on the plane once the journey begins in this pandemic. if you can, choose the only window seat. A study by researchers at Emory University and Georgia Tech found that the best way to avoid germs and viruses on a plane is to sit on a window seat. Infected people will most likely not infect people sitting farther than two seats beside them or one or two rows in front or behind. The risk of indirect transmission can be eliminated by keeping hands clean and avoiding contact with eyes, nose, and mouth.

5. Thoroughly clean Your Surroundings

While sitting on your seat in a plane take a page or any cloth and do a quick scrub down of the hard surfaces around you with disinfectant wipes. While sitting on your seat in a plane take a page or any cloth and do a quick scrub down of the hard surfaces around you with disinfectant wipes. The back of the seat in front of you, the tray table and those all surfaces where infectious respiratory droplets can remain alive. Be sure to allow the surfaces to remain wet for the time it takes for the disinfectant to work (which is usually mentioned on that box) and to not use wipes on soft surfaces, such as upholstery which would leave an uncomfortable wet seat and spread the germs and virus out further.

6. Avoid drinking water if possible

According to the US Environmental Protection Agency, the water from the plane water tanks is not mostly clean, so drinking tea, coffee, and whatever which is usually made from this water they are not good for your health. If possible avoid this.

7. It would be better to stay home if you are sick

This is the most important point. More often than not, we think about how to protect ourselves from the disease but don’t think about preventing ourselves from spreading it. The CDC recommends waiting for a minimum of 25 hours after a fever has completely abated before stepping out. It’s important to think about everyone if the virus is ever to be contained.
