The corona virus pandemic has put a new focus on everyday tasks, from washing your hands to making sure surfaces are sanitized. This increased attention to health and safety will be apart of the new normal when regular travel resumes. Here are some tips to keep in mind before your next trip.
Include sanitizing wipes in your carry-on bag. If opting for a gel or liquid hand sanitizer, make sure you stay under 3.4 ounces maximum allowed by TSA.
Major airlines clean the plane’s cabin in between flights, but it wouldn’t hurt to do some sanitizing of your own. Wipe down hard surfaces like your head and arm rest, seat-belt buckle, touchscreen, set back pockets and tray table.
While your hotel room will be cleaned before you arrive, there’s no harm in wiping down common surfaces for that extra layer of protection. For instance: the TV remote control, alarm clock, cabinet and drawer knobs, door handles, light switches, desk surfaces, info booklets, etc. In the bathroom be sure to wipe down all surfaces, faucets and handles.
Whether you are at home or on the road, the CDC advises that regular hand washing with soap and water is one of the best ways to keep yourself form getting sick.
Don’t forget to wear a mask!
Stay safe and healthy everyone.
