Do you remember that when was the last time you travelled? Travelling for business is one thing, but I am talking about packing your bags, logging out of your all social media accounts and disconnecting from your normal routine for a week or more.
Without a doubt, the year 2020 was dedicated to lockdowns and travel restrictions. Never had we all imagined that there will come a time when we will not only be able to travel but will also have to work from home for a long period of time. Although, it is too early to predict that when we all can go back travelling as we used to without any mask or such.
But, if you are travelling now in 2021 then you need to keep in mind certain things to keep yourself healthy and safe. Even if you gradually step out to travel then don't forget your mask and hand sanitiser with you. Let's see what all are the rules that you should follow if you are stepping out for travelling.
Here's what I will cover in my article
#1. What rules do you need to follow while travelling in 2021?
Do you want to get ill while travelling? Of course, not. No one wants to. Everyone wants to remain fit and enjoy the trip to the fullest. Right? So, for that you need to follow certain rules:
1. Travel and testing
Testing before and after travel can reduce the risk of spreading COVID-19. So, make sure that whenever you are at a place where the COVID tests are going on then, don't skip it, just get yourself tested.
2. Maintain a distance of 6 feet (2 meters) between you and others as much as possible.
3. Avoid contact with anyone.
4. Limit contact with frequently touched surfaces, such as door handles, elevator buttons etc. If you touch these surfaces, use a hand sanitiser or wash your hands afterwards.
5. Wear a cloth face mask.
6. Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth.
7. Cover coughs and sneezes.
8. Clean your hands often. It's especially important after going to the bathroom, before eating, and after coughing, sneezing or blowing your nose.
9. Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds.
10. If soap and water aren't available, use a hand sanitiser. Cover all surfaces of your hands and rub your hands together until they feel dry.
So, these are the rules that one need to keep in mind before stepping out for travel.
