Travel during a pandemic, what do you need to know?
Travel has already become one of the basic needs of people, there is much more to be done if people do not want to travel completely during a world pandemic.
It is more difficult to travel now than usual because of various kinds of restrictions, and in some places it is not possible. But the borders of different countries began to open more and more - and this year's vacation already sounds like a plan, not just a dream. But how risky and can you in general protect yourself from a vacation? See the pros and cons together.
Go or not to go? This is the question for all those who are thinking about a vacation in the future. On the one hand, the coronavirus. On the other - the desire not to stop living, as before. Although it is worth recognizing that, as before it will not happen. Another reality dictates its own rules and make adjustments.
First and foremost, you should think about your safety and the people around you. Wherever you are, you should follow simple rules:
- Stay in the mass at the airport or train station. Take a few masks on the trip, do not lack other means of personal protection: mittens or hand sanitizers.
- Observe the rules of social distance. If possible, keep a distance of 2 meters from other people.
- If possible, take your temperature before you travel. The temperature is regularly measured at airlines, and if you have symptoms of COVID-19, you may be denied boarding.
Another - it is important to follow the rules of the trip to each country in reliable journals, monitor the changes (which occur quite often), so that at the time of travel you have the complete package of necessary documents. Some countries require additional documents to enter their territory, such as:
- Health certificate, negative result of the test for COVID-19
- Complete or partial vaccination passport
- Fill out the questionnaire on the visit (HES-code).
During this period, more and more countries are open to tourists with full vaccination passports.
People who exceeded COVID-19 require vaccination regardless of whether they travel or not. The vast majority of infected people produce a certain amount of antibodies and immune cells to fight the virus in the future, but the level of immunity can be very different.
Is it safe to stay in hotels during a pandemic?
Large chains of hotels and small family hotels are well aware that in the era of covids the demands of guests to hygiene and safety of rented accommodation has increased. To reduce the risks for guests, many hotels offer contactless check-in and check-out and virtual reception, trying to move away from the usual type of food - the buffet.
In hotels of the world's major networks even room service was replaced by an add-on: you make an order via your smartphone - and it is left at the door of the room.
Social layout and automatic systems with SANITIZER on each bed - a new reality of the hotel world. Many hotels use disinfectant kilims, ionizers for air purification and electrostatic precipitators, and offer guests free masks.
The cleanliness of the rooms is now much more closely monitored than before the pandemic: many hotels have tables with a schedule of the last and scheduled cleanings, increased staffing protocols.
Most hotels around the world now allow you to cancel or change your reservation free of charge up to 24 years before the scheduled check-in date.
We would like to point out that all the preventive measures mentioned in this article are implemented in the Ribas Hotel, and all employees are fully vaccinated, as the safety and health of our customers is of paramount importance.
