Mandatory Checklist Before You Plan to Travel During Corona Outbreak

With the season of festivals soon approaching in the coming months, the urge to congregate with our kinsfolk is getting extreme. Are the festivals not about celebrating together? Should we not share the joy and magic of the moment with our near and dear ones? Indeed it is! But the recent Corona outbreak has changed everything into new normal, which is all about social distancing and keeping your guard up. 

Certainly, the pandemic has put a halt on family get-togethers and planned trips. With that said, if the avid wanderlust does not allow you to settle without hitting the roads, you should keep some things in mind considering the threat of the COVID-19 is not yet over. With proper precautions, you can take on an adventurous expedition with your kinsfolk in these distressing times. Get ready for the new normal, and keep your mandatory checklist with you before you plan to travel during the Corona outbreak.

Obligatory Precautions Before You Plan to Head Out

The WHO has released so many guidelines and precautionary steps that we must follow for maintaining hygiene, improving immunity, and staying safe. Here are some of the obligatory precautions you must follow:

  1. We always sanitize our hands when we go out or return home. Similarly, it is essential to sanitize your vehicle when you take it out for a ride. Regular sanitization will not allow germs to grow inside or on the surface of your vehicle.
  2. Make sure that you clean every surface that is touched frequently. Wear gloves and wipe off the surfaces using alcohol-based cleaners. Surfaces like the dashboard, seat belt buckles, steering wheel, gear shift, and door handles and similar most-touched areas must be sanitized well.
  3. The method you use to wipe a surface is equally important. Always wipe from left to right. Again, never rub the same surface twice like we often do in a left-right-left motion. Once the front areas are clean, you should sanitize the seating, ceiling, and window panes as well. If that sounds exhausting, why not give your car for a quick deep wash? It is always advisable to get your car serviced periodically.

  5. Always use sanitized cabs to travel from reputable taxi service providers. We at Rental Tempo Travellers ensure the sanity of our vehicles after every rental ride. For this reason, we deep clean and sanitize them along with periodic technical checks. Plus, we have installed partitions between the passenger and driver seats to ensure social distancing and remove chances of infection by contact.
  6. If you are planning to head out with family and friends, it is essential to keep ample sanitization essentials. Stock alcohol-based sanitizer, disposable tissues, face masks, and gloves. These essentials also come handy when you have to do a quick fix of your vehicle en route like changing a tire. 
  7. It is important to note that Corona is spreading at a high pace. Therefore, it is crucial to avoid outside food and drinks as much as you can. Carry ample clean drinking water from home. If you have to make a refill, make sure you do that from hygienic places only.
  8. Always pack smartly. It is more required than ever during the Corona outbreak. Cover up your faces with scarves and wear appropriate clothing. Keep an extra pair of clothes. Avoid direct contact with dust and pollution. Carry sachets of detergents and keep bottles of disinfectants. Wear washable slippers so that you can clean them as and when required.
  9. Never put down the mask. When you hit the roads, you may come in contact with many people. Sometimes, you may need to interact with them as well. Since you cannot identify a carrier in the case of Corona, it is safe and advisable not to remove your mask when you are out on the streets. Always carry an extra set of masks for emergencies.

Things to Know About COVID-19 Before Travelling

Make a list of nearby hospitals and COVID-19 testing centers. Keep a list of emergency numbers just in case required. Install the Aarogya Setu app to get instant updates about an infected person nearby. It is equally essential to follow the quarantine guidelines strictly during inter-state travel. 

Properly wash your hands when you are on the move. Do not touch your eyes, nose, or mouth even if it’s itching. If you have to, use a hand sanitizer first, before scratching. Follow proper hygiene. Disinfect your clothes at the earliest when you reach your destination. Carry disposable bags to throw litter. Avoid cash payments. Instead, try digital payments as much as possible. Avoid dining at roadside restaurants. Take enough food essentials from home. Always wash your hands before eating. Use separate serving dishes. You can also keep disposable plates and spoons. 

If you are using public transport for travel, make sure to sanitize your hands after leaving and before entering the vehicle. It is also necessary to avoid common touchpoints. Strictly practice social distancing. Limit currency exchange. Follow government-issued seating guidelines in public transport. More importantly, avoid travel if you feel unwell.
