How to safely go on holiday during the coronavirus pandemic

So, you’re thinking of going away on holiday… Nobody can’t blame you to be honest, don’t we all need a holiday? I know I do. Of course, with the thoughts of going on holiday, there are plenty of questions that you ask yourself “How can I keep my children safe?” “Will it be more stressful than being home?” “Where can I travel to?” “Will we have to self-isolate when we get home?” are some of the questions that pop into my head at the moment.

It’s only normal to ask yourself these questions and I’m glad you are because making sure you and the ones around you are safe is one step further to reduce the spread of the virus. This goes to everyone, no matter if you are going to the supermarket or going on holiday – be safe! In search of the answers I contacted a close friend at leading Aviation Tooling website AviationSpares.com, and here is what she said. 

Use personal protective equipment.

Face coverings are now mandatory in shops, supermarkets, public transport and other indoor settings in England and other countries around the world, so don’t forget to take face masks for the travel to and from your destination, as well as for while you are away.

If you are worried about how your children will react to having to wear a face mask, Janine Huldie has a blog post dedicated to face coverings and their use by children where she gives advice on how to wear face masks and how to introduce them to kids.

Besides face masks, you can also use face shields, disposable gloves and sanitising products, such as hand sanitising gel. These should be used alongside proper hand hygiene. You might not know where to purchase these types of products – ALL PPE is a great place to start, where you can find all you need in one website!

Follow guidelines.

Try to keep up with the Government’s coronavirus guidelines and your destination’s restrictions and advice. I know it can be overwhelming but it’s important to be aware of what you can and can’t do during the pandemic.

Consider all the factors.

I know how badly you want this holiday but you’ll have to consider if you and your family are ready to travel during a pandemic. As Scrapbook Blog says “Travelling with children can be stressful as it is, so would you do it when there is the added stress of keeping on top of all the safety requirements?”

Perhaps if you need a holiday and don’t want to travel abroad, why not have a staycation and drive to a lovely British destination? You will still need to be careful and take all the right precautions but it will feel like a smaller step than going to a country abroad.

Are you going to be going on holiday this summer?
