Coronavirus has changed the world to the extent that no one would have ever imagine. A lot of companies, people, and communities had a major setback when the world was first hit by the Covid-19. One of the most affected sectors was  traveling, especially traveling abroad. The first wave of Covid-19 really did damage to the big airlines, who lost billions of dollars. During the first wave, traveling was stopped to prevent Covid-19 from spreading. However, as cases started to go down and life was “getting closer” to normal, we still saw a decline in the number of people at the airports and also on airplanes.

People who used to travel abroad regularly, or here and there, now have fears in their hearts regarding traveling, as they might catch Covid-19. There are people who had plans of seeing their families in 2020, but couldn’t travel and risk their lives or the life of their loved ones. As we are seeing the cases going down in 2021, people are being vaccinated, and we are trying to get back to our normal lives. Traveling abroad and domestically has started again. Americans, however, should not forget that Covid is still not fully under control, and people are still dying. We should be cautious while traveling. Here are some travel tips:

  • HAVE A SEPARATE BAG THAT CONTAINS A MASKS, HAND SANITIZER AND GLOVES.
  • TRY TO HAVE LESS CONTACT WITH OTHERS OUTSIDE YOUR FAMILY. 
  • USE SELF CHECKING MACHINES AT THE AIRPORT. 
  • TRY NOT TO EAT AT THE AIRPORT.
  • WASH YOUR HANDS AND USE SANITIZER EVERY CHANCE YOU GET.
  • DON’T TOUCH YOUR FACE.
