Pre-Trip Planning and Covid-19 Safety Tips

Written By Violet Dennis for – Posted October 20, 2021

Something to keep in mind about travelling during the Covid-19 pandemic is that everyone in the United States must wear face masks regardless of vaccination and while using any method of public transportation.  And if you haven’t been vaccinated and plan on travelling by plane, you will need to take a Covid-19 test 3 days prior to the date of travel and have received a negative test result.  Since very young children are not able to take any Covid related vaccines as of yet, keep in mind when planning out of country travel that they will not be allowed to enter.

To stay abreast of any changes frequently updated by the United States, as well as, travel to other countries you can visit the U.S. Department of State’s Bureau of Consular Affairs website to avoid surprises that may prevent you from being able to keep your pre-planned trip. In addition to often checking this website, it would also be advised to add an extra layer of protection to your travel plans by purchasing travel insurance so that you won’t lose money for unexpected last minute changes that might be out of your control.

Although travel brings about a stir of excitement and joy, preparing for a trip can often be tedious and stressful especially when you make it to your destination only to realize that you forgot to pack some trip essentials. The new normal for travel now includes trying to figure out how to travel safely during a world-wide pandemic and keep yourself and your loved ones from getting sick.  Check out the list below for must have travel accessories to get before your next upcoming trip.

  1. Airplane Seat and Arm Rest Covers. Disposable airplane and armrest covers will assist with giving you additional peace of mind and comfort by fully covering the seat from top to bottom.

2. Flushable Toilet Seat Covers. Add an extra layer of protection to hotel room and public restrooms by using disposable toilet seat covers that are individually wrapped and can easily be carried in your luggage and personal bags.

3. Hand Sanitizing Wipes. Since airline passengers are prohibited from packing fluids in their luggage a good alternative to ensuring that you are able to properly cleanse your hands are these individually packaged hand sanitizing wipes that can added to your carry-on bags, purses, back packs and briefcases.
