8 Ways to Go Out and Remain Safe during the Pandemic
AJ! and Sharon recently traveled safely to Cancun, Mexico and back. We received a Covid-19 test before we left and after we got back. AJ!'s test came back negative for Covid-19. Sharon is still waiting on her test results but is relatively sure she is Covid-19 free as well. So it is possible to travel and go out safely by following these steps. We will provide information in an upcoming article about how we not only survived Covid but also a Tropical Storm Gamma and Hurricane Delta. So stay tuned!
As COVID-19 continues on through our summer, fall is quickly approaching us. Many people have decided that they are done with lockdowns and social distancing and are ready to continue with their normal lives again.
Many areas are beginning to reopen but there are still plenty of states and counties that are still in full effect.
If you are planning on traveling and going out, here are a few important things to keep in mind to reduce your risk and keep not only yourself safe, but others as well.
Let’s take a look!
Go On An Outdoor Adventure
The CDC and experts have told everyone that going outdoors is a great way to spend your time during the pandemic (of course, this is only if you are practicing social distancing).
When we say outdoors, we are talking about going to national parks, fishing, mountain biking, boating, ext.
Wear Your Mask
This may seem obvious, but a lot of people either forget or choose not too. Wearing a mask is going to help reduce the spread of the Coronavirus and help keep you safe while going out.
Many businesses will require you to wear one as well, so it’s best to always have one on when leaving your house.
Keeping Good Hygiene
Again, this one may seem obvious, but washing your hands and not touching your face is important. This is especially important if you choose to leave your home often and/or if you come into contact with surfaces that are touched frequently.
Make Your Trips Count
I’m sure that by now you’re sick of being inside your apartment and either feel cooped up or bored, but refraining from going to the store every day is going to help keep down your risks.
Try to get everything you need on as few trips as possible. Stock up on food and necessary items to last you a bit longer than normal so you don’t have to go out as often.
Avoid The Crowds
The CDC has continued to tell us that we all need to keep 6 feet apart. If you are going out, it’s best to stay away from any places that may have large crowds, such as clubs and big events.
With so many people attending, it may be impossible to follow the CDC guidelines.
Pay Attention To Surfaces
One of the ways COVID spreads is by touching a surface that someone else has touched. Pay attention to frequently touched surfaces and try to steer clear of them.
Think surfaces such as slides, benches, countertops, and door handles.
Choose Who To See Carefully
Create a "closed circle" group with either close friends or family. Try only to socialize in person with just a few select people.
And even with your closed circle, try to avoid contact as much as possible.
We already know that some people are at a much higher risk than others. So if you fall into that group, you need to be extremely cautious
One of the best ways to do this is by taking the guidelines to the next level. Double anything the CDC has said. If they say 6 feet, you stay 12 feet away.
