Vacations or traveling during a pandemic are very different from what we usually do. This is because there are additional health protocols that we must go through before traveling, such as attaching a vaccination certificate, proof of PCR test results or Covid-19 antigens, and quarantine to prevent transmission of the Corona virus. Therefore, it is important that you and your family follow the latest health rules and protocols to ensure a safe journey.
Here are tips from experts so that you and your family can have a safe year-end holiday during the Covid-19 pandemic.
1. Ensure the Covid-19 Level in Tourist Destinations
Even though you have been vaccinated, you must ensure the level or level of Covid-19 in tourist destinations, both domestically and abroad. If the number of Covid-19 is high, it poses a greater risk for you and your family to contract the Corona virus.
2. Know the Limits
When you are at your destination, you will find restrictions on activities or PPKM levels that may differ from where you live. Find out the requirements for activity in the area, including rules for dine-in, shopping centers, attractions or tourist attractions, and other rules.
3. Plan a Covid-19 Test (PCR or Antigen)
Before going on year-end holidays, you must confirm the need for Covid-19 test results as one of the travel conditions. Recheck the applicable rules before carrying out PCR or Antigen tests through official information, both from the government and airlines. Careful planning can reduce anxiety and save money because you don’t have to do a last-minute Covid-19 test.
4. Keep your distance on the plane
Referring to the data, the Covid-19 virus is not easily spread on the plane. Because the air continues to be filtered and circulated in the cabin. However, overcrowded flights can make social distancing difficult, so it’s important to limit contact and wear a mask during flights. Instead of using a paper boarding pass or handing it over to staff for inspection, opt for an electronic boarding pass that you can display via your gadget.
5. Choose Safe Activities
Choose a safe activity after arriving at a tourist destination. When entering and leaving any facility or place, make sure you always wash your hands thoroughly for at least 20 seconds using soapy water or hand sanitizer. Don’t forget to continue to wear masks, keep your distance, and sanitize during this year-end holiday.
