The COVID-19 pandemic that spread like wildfire since last December 2019 has affected human life and economies across the world and nobody knows how long it will continue. When the travel world might return to something like normal. We’re facing unprecedented times. COVID-19 has fundamentally changed how we live. Safety is now the responsibility of every employee, leader, partner and customer of an organization. Safety is the way of doing business.
To help you make an informed decision about the safety and well-being of your travelers during COVID-19 epidemic there are precautions you can take to minimize your risk of becoming unwell.
Wash hands regularly
- Wash your hands often with soap and
water for at least 20 seconds, especially after going to the bathroom, before
eating, and after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing.
- If soap and water are not available to clean your hands, use a hand sanitizer which is at least 60% alcohol. Always wash hands with soap and water when hands are visibly dirty.
Collect Sanitisation Essential.
Hand sanitisers are necessary. Make it a habit to use alcohol-based sanitisers as frequently as possible, preferably every 20 minutes for best results. Buy disposable tissues, alcohol based sanitisers and gloves.
Do Not Forget to wear Masks
Travel bring you in close contact with a number of people and locals, and thus call for certain precautions. Throughout the journey you should wear a mask. Pile up on masks because you never know when you’ll run out of them.
Wear a mask and make sure to change it every 10 hours while travelling. Carry along enough masks to help yourself and others in your surroundings.
Pack Smartly to Be Prepared
Make sure to carry sufficient clothes and do not forget to carry handy detergent sachets and bottles of disinfectants as nowadays it is important to stay clean. Keep washable sandals and slippers with you wherever you can because cleaning is the only cure to survive in the COVID-19.
Practice good hygiene
Avoid touching your own eyes, nose and mouth with unwashed hands, as viruses most frequently enter the body through these routes. Avoid close contact with people who are sick. Maintain at least three feet distance between yourself and anyone who is coughing or sneezing.
If you’re unwell, don’t travel
Travelling only when it is essential and avoiding visiting crowded places, among others. Stay home when you are sick.
Cover your mouth and nose when you cough, sneeze into your elbow and wear a facemask to protect your fellow travelers. If you begin to feel sick while at work, go home as soon as possible.
Carry antibacterial wipes to clean . Wipe from left to right and never wipe back on the same surface twice. The same advice is sensible for other items frequently used by travelers, including hotel television remote controls and clean your hands after travelling on shuttles, taxis, holding handrails and using elevators
