If you're going to travel during the pandemic, there are things you can do to help reduce your risk. Follow these simple steps to make your hotel stay during COVID-19 as safe as possible.
Chose a hotel that's following enhanced safety protocols
Your safety strategy starts before you book. Do some research before making a reservation to make sure that your hotel is following enhanced safety protocols (like stepping up sanitation in common areas, enforcing mask-wearing, and making check-in contactless). If the hotel doesn't seem to be taking the pandemic seriously, it's best to take your business elsewhere.
Keep following best practices
Don't relax your guard just because you're on vacation. Follow the same general COVID-19 safety tips that you practice in your daily life while you're at the hotel. The three most important things you can do are:
— Maintain 6 feet of distance from other people
— Wear a mask
— Wash your hands frequently, especially after checking-in/checking out, as soon as you enter your hotel room, after handling cash/credit cards, and before eating.
