Important guidelines for hitting the road.
If you’re planning to travel for spring break, be sure to keep up those COVID-19 protocols and safety practices. Consider airports, bus stations, train stations and rest stops as places travelers can potentially be exposed to coronavirus, according to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). So here are a few CDC guidelines to follow while you’re away:
When using bathrooms and rest stops, make sure to wash your hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds.
After getting gas, use disinfecting wipes or hand sanitizer on your hands.
Consider bringing your own food. Otherwise, use drive-through, delivery, take-out or curbside pick-up options.
Always wear a mask in public, stay at least six feet apart from anyone who is not from your household, wash your hands regularly and avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth.
