With the lockdown coming to an end in India, it seems like a lot of us would want to travel again. Lifting of lockdown does not mean everything is back to normal. But, if you are travelling, you have to travel with precautions. Here are some tips on staying safe while travelling post lockdown.
1. Be aware of what you’re eating
I love eating local food wherever I go and I am sure you do too. Make sure that the food you’re eating while travelling is thoroughly cooked and goes through all the quality checks.
2. Be aware of what you touch
When we are out, we keep coming in contact with things other people have touched. This requires a heightened sense of caution. Be aware of what surfaces or devices you are touching that others might have used too. ATMs, escalators and the like. Don’t forget to use a sanitizer if at all you’re touching any of those things and do not touch your face.
3. Be careful of water contamination
Again, the water I drink during travelling is usually local. Sometimes, it happens so that for some people their gut bacteria might not react well with the local produce. So it’s better to take precautions and drink bottled water.
4. Don’t forget to carry the essentials
There are a few things that you must carry if you’re travelling. The list includes hand sanitizer, disinfectant tissues and a face mask. These items will help you in maintaining a certain level of hygiene during your travel.
5. Keep washing your hands
Yes, I know. Everybody knows that. But, during our travels we keeping coming in contact with things people have touched or used. So, we have to be extra cautious and keeping washing our hands every now and then.
