With COVID-19 cases on the rise, it’s important that you take every precaution to keep yourself healthy. People that travel for business are putting themselves at risk, but it’s a manageable risk as long as you follow the right steps.
So what should you know about traveling during the pandemic?
Here are some COVID-19 tips that business travelers should follow.
Do Business With Companies That Take Every Precaution
Safety during this pandemic is all about decisions and controlling variables. While you can’t control every variable, you can choose to do business with companies that are taking the virus seriously and taking every precaution.
For instance, if you’re booking a limo, make sure that they are in compliance with COVID-19 measures and that they are thoroughly clean and disinfect the inside of the vehicle. The company should be monitoring the health of their drivers and should refrain from offering magazines or reading materials unless the client requests them.
If you’re booking a flight, find out about the precautions the airline is taking, such as spacing out the boarding process, leaving middle seats open, and checking temperatures before boarding passengers.
Keep Your Mask On
Always keep your mask on when you’re not in the privacy of your hotel room. It’s easy to let the mask droop below your nose or to get casual about using it, but this can’t be stressed enough.
When you’re indoors in poorly ventilated areas, the risk of contracting or transmitting the virus goes up exponentially. Purchase a few different masks that you can throw in the rotation and wear them frequently while making sure to keep 6 feet between you and the person closest to you.
Pack Some Hand Sanitizer
Keep plenty of hand sanitizer healthy and use it as needed. While washing your hands with antibacterial soap and hot water is always the best course of action, hand sanitizer is incredibly effective at preventing the spread of the virus.
Choose a sanitizer that is at least 60% alcohol. Bring some lotion to go with it, since constantly using hand sanitizer can dry out your skin.
Build Your Immune System and Keep an Eye on How You Feel
Focus on your overall health, and not just preventative measures. When you have a strong and healthy immune system your chances of fighting the virus are always better.
Eat a healthy diet filled with plenty of alkaline, immunity-boosting properties. Drink lots of water and make sure that you’re getting 8 to 10 hours of sleep each night.
Monitor your symptoms and don’t hesitate to cancel any travel plans if you’re not feeling well.
