3 Health and Safety Tips to Follow as You Travel to Your Boracay Hotel
The COVID-19 pandemic has forever changed many aspects of our lives and has ushered in a “new normal”. This definitely applies to travel, once restrictions have been lifted and people feel it is safe enough to do so.
If you will be traveling to Boracay for leisure or for business in the coming months, know that you’ll want to take certain measures to ensure your health and safety as you travel to your hotel in Station 2. Here are three steps you should prepare before you fly to Boracay:
Wear a Face Mask
Wearing a face mask helps reduce the chances of viruses and microbes gaining entry to your body. Just make sure you avoid touching your mask and then touching any part of your face. If you do end up having to touch your mask for any reason, make it a practice to wash your hands with soap and water immediately. If that isn’t possible, use hand sanitizer with at least 70 percent alcohol. The best option would be to use a washable mask or one that allows you to change its filter. If these are not available to you, just make sure you bring enough masks for the duration of your trip.
Bring Your Own Cutlery and Water Bottle
Shared cutlery and glassware can increase your chances of exposure since you have no idea who last touched an item. Given this, it may be a good idea to bring your own cutlery and a water bottle during your trip. Some hotels near D’Mall, like Feliz Hotel Boracay, provide guests with a glass container of water in their rooms to help refill personal water bottles. There are many great travel cutlery sets available online. Using your own water bottle also helps you cut down on plastic waste.
Practice Cashless Transactions
It is no secret that bills and coins can carry many different kinds of microbes on them, especially since these tend to change hands frequently. Fortunately, many businesses in Boracay are adopting cashless transactions like the use of credit cards, G-cash, and the like, so it’s best to use those options. That said, you shouldn’t travel without cash on hand. However, the use of cash should always be the last option. When you have the chance, you should take care to disinfect your cards and your phone with alcohol.
