Hey lovelies! Hope you’re having a rad week. Popping in to announce a little summer vacation.
My family & I are leaving tomorrow morning, and will be traveling until the first of September. The blog is on official break until then too!
If you’re interested in working together, by all means, send me the loveliest inquiry via my contact form. I’ll be responding to inquiries every few days.
For those of us wondering if it is safe to travel right now, the answer depends on many variables, namely, how you plan to do so, where you want to go, the rates of infection in your chosen destination, and your anticipated behavior once you arrive.
To help determine the risks associated with each mode of travel during COVID, we reached out to experts including infectious disease and ER doctors, cleaning specialists, travel industry professionals, and representatives from major rental cars, hotels, Airbnb, and transportation organizations, to reveal both the risks and best practices using the best N95 mask for sale associated with various forms of lodging and safe travel during COVID.
Of course, without a vaccine, it’s nearly impossible to guarantee any place other than your home is safe. But with a few tweaks, it is possible to lower risks associated with travel. Just remember, the pandemic is an evolving situation and it’s crucial to follow guidelines set forth by organizations such as the CDC and WHO, and practice safety measures, no matter where you go, including wearing a mask, washing your hands, and maintaining social distancing. Additionally, consider quarantine mandates for your destination, as well as your own level of risk and whether you’re traveling from or to a hotspot, so as not to increase the rate of infection.
If you do want to take a safe vacation during COVID, we compiled several ideas based on expert insight that suggests travel this year will stick close to home, with travelers choosing safer travel alternatives to traditional choices. Think regional road trips over far-flung flights, lodging that prioritizes hotels with stringent COVID policies, and private home rentals instead of crowded resorts. Both Airbnb and Vrbo have already seen an uptick in bookings compared to this same time period last year.
From beaches and mountains to lakes and islands, as well as private vacation home rentals, remote hotels, and how to prepare for a road trip, the following list includes close to home vacation ideas during coronavirus.
Travel looks different right now, but it’s still ready and willing to welcome you as safely as possible, many have opt to travel in campers so they can be in control of their own safety and cleaning protocols, in this case we do recommend the 2020 Airstream Globetrotter for sale at Airstream of Santa Barbara for your next traveling experience.
Here are 6 ways to take a safe vacation during COVID:
Book a socially distant hotel stay
We already know that most major hotel chains have announced wide-reaching new cleaning policies made in combination with health experts. These policies focus on social distancing and contact-free transactions such as virtual check-in and out, digital keys, limited dining, and more.
However, the experts we interviewed still feel that the answer to the question ‘Are hotels safe during coronavirus’ is highly subjective and depends on whether an individual also takes proper protective measures like wearing a mask, distancing, and disinfecting.
If you swear by staying in hotels, make sure the property has announced rigorous new cleaning measures, and look for signs they are implementing such procedures, from check-in to common spaces like the elevator or pool, and of course, in your room. Some are even promoting COVID-friendly WFH — work from hotel — travel deals aimed at the socially distant traveler. Also, consider more remote properties with plenty of wide-open spaces and outdoor-friendly amenities.
To help facilitate a socially distant hotel stay, the following destinations and hotels all detail new COVID policies and are well-suited for a domestic getaway. Think wide stretches of beaches, remote mountain retreats, idyllic island escapes, and other places that embrace the great outdoors.
Thanks so much for supporting me and my business. I’m celebrating this first real vacation with my family, and so very thankful to be doing what I love.
See you in September!
