8 Important Tips On Traveling Safely During The COVID-19 Pandemic

Because let's face it, flights are cheap right now.


With the Coronavirus spreading at such a rapid pace, things such as traveling and being exposed to large groups of people have become very risky. Those with impaired immune systems or pre-existing conditions are highly advised to limit travel as much as possible.

For those of us with average immune systems, the temptation of flying for such low prices is very, VERY tempting. My friends and I happen to be among those who gave in to the temptation.

Being a slight hypochondriac, I had to outweigh the pros and cons of traveling. Ultimately, a $50 plane ticket to Florida outweighed the cons. With that being said, as excited as I am, I am also stressing high-key about being clean and taking every precaution possible to prevent catching Coronavirus.

So, for those of you who can relate to my panic, here are some of my best tips for staying clean and safe while traveling during this crazy time.

1. Keep hand sanitizer on you at all times.

2. Do not wear a mask if you do not show symptoms of the virus. Hospitals and actual ill patients need it more than you do.

3. Keep a mini pack of disinfectant wipes on you.

4. If you are flying, wipe down not only the seat but the seat belt as well.

5. If you have allergies, make sure you are taking medication for it. Having a runny nose or watery eyes will ultimately make you want to touch your face. Don't do it!

6. Keep tissues on you and hold them over your hand each time you touch a doorknob to prevent germs from traveling. 

7. Stay hydrated. If you are dehydrated, your immune system will not be at its best.

8. Last but not least, try to be cautious, but enjoy yourself! Life goes on, and as long as you are being careful, you shouldn't stress too much!

It’s everyone’s favorite time of year. Christmastime is a celebration, but have we forgotten what we are supposed to be celebrating? There is a reason the holiday is called Christmas. Not presentmas. Not Santamas. Not Swiftmas. Christmas.
