After a long spell of strict lockdown measures implemented by the government across the world to control the COVID-19 spread, the restrictions are easing up and the lockdowns are lifted in a phased manner. And, consequently many people are looking forward to finally stepping out of their homes once again and traveling.
While you surely deserve the holiday, you must not get complacent about taking the necessary security measures while you travel. You must exercise some basic caution to keep you and your family safe while you are on the go. So, let us look at some of the travel essentials you must pack in while traveling during the Covid-19.
PPE, masks and gloves
While PPE kits are available for the general public, it is advisable not to buy them as of now at least, due to the dearth for frontline medical professionals. Instead you could use a longer-lasting sanitizer such as Dr Rhazes Ultra Protect Gel that lasts for 2 hours or a surface disinfectant such as Dr Rhazes 7 Day Surface Disinfectant Shield that lasts for 7 days continuously on surfaces. This comes in combination with full sleeved clothing, masks and face shields especially if you are traveling by air, or any other public transport. It acts as a first layer of protection from the COVID-19 infection. Also, it is advisable to carry a box of gloves so that you can keep yourself safe from touching any potentially infected surface.
The importance of sanitizer cannot be stressed enough while traveling during the COVID. A pocket-friendly bottle of sanitizer must be an indispensable of your travel essentials just as your phone and wallet. Make sure that you use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer like the Dr. Rhazes Ultra Protected Gen Sanitizer. It contains 70% ethanol and provides complete protection against enveloped virus. And, the best thing about this sanitizer is that it provides up to two hours and it can be used on both skin and surface. So, you can easily disinfect your hands, mobile, wallets, etc. while travelling.
Disinfectant wipes and sanitizer spray
Like sanitizers, disinfectant wipes are a must-have in your bag while travelling. You can use these wipes to wipe and disinfect the surfaces like car seat, arm rest, door handles, sunglasses, wrist watch, wallet, etc and every surface around that you could potentially be touched by an infected person. The wipes are a great way to ensure safety from getting infected due to touching an infected surface.
Similarly, if you are going to spend a night at a hotel, it is advisable to carry your own room sanitizer spray. This will help you ensure safety from the harmful germs and viruses. Besides, if you are using Dr. Rhazes Spray Hand Sanitizer, it has a fresh and pleasant lemon fragrance and keeps the surface smelling fresh.
Today, in the purview of the Covid-19, the healthcare experts worldwide recommend maintaining social distance of at least two metre from the people. This is especially important while travelling. Since, your interaction with people is limited, you may invariably be using your mobile phone more to keep yourself engaged during the trip. So, to ensure that your phone doesn’t run out of battery, you must carry a power bank. This will also help you call for help during an emergency (if any).
Traveling for holidays is a great way to enjoy a good time with your family and friends, but make sure that you take the right safety measures.
