Travel hasn’t seen this large of an impact since 9/11. Airlines are losing money due to travel bans around the world. Summer is the biggest time of year for some businesses, but with all the challenges we’ve seen thus far with this virus, it may slow down our travel. All these changes may mean fewer travel options and additional travel preparation. The best way to prepare for traveling is to know your options and what obstacles could hinder that.
What we wear when near other people has become a serious point of concern. Face coverings and even gloves are being scrutinized as to what materials are the best for repelling germs. While no fabric is 100% impenetrable, materials such as canvas, denim, thick t-shirts, and towels have shown promising results in limiting the number of particles that penetrate. The most important thing is to remember to cover your mouth and nose.
Cleanliness and safety are of utmost importance during this time and will become even more important as the world slowly begins to reopen. Items like soap, hand sanitizer, cleaning wipes, and even Clorox travel luggage will be significant in terms of safe travel. Buying travel-size hand sanitizer (not ones with extensive fragrance as those are likely to be less potent) and having it on you at all times is a great way to make sure that germs are kept from spreading. Wiping down surfaces you plan on touching will limit exposure and keep the people around you as well as loved ones safer.
Immune System Boosters
People don’t often think of vitamins when they begin preparing for travel, but vitamins are important to our overall health. While vitamins are particularly essential in our current climate, they offer amazing benefits for the immune system. Vitamins such as C, B6, and E are rich in immune-boosting power, which can help fight off infections and viruses.
If vitamins aren’t your thing, you can actually find plenty of vitamins in baby food. Baby food can be a great on-the-go snack, even for adults. It’s a great supplement when a fast meal is necessary, and they can be pretty tasty. Don’t underestimate the mashed fruits, because they are delicious.
Take Care of Loved Ones
The most vulnerable in our population are the elderly, children, and those with compromised immune systems. Travel can be a bit chaotic because of this reason, but if you stay organized, everything will work out. Make sure you pack any medication that might be necessary and bring some over the counter medications as a precaution. If you’re traveling out of the country, check with your doctor to ensure everyone is up to date with vaccines. Most importantly, watch out for loved ones. If someone is lagging behind, have everyone take a quick break before continuing. It’s the little things that can make a world of difference.
