But if you're still determined to have some a relaxing beach vacation this summer because the lockdowns mostly lifted, you should be aware of the risks and know some important guidelines.
Here we collect some tips & tricks to help you, and hope you can enjoy the beautiful scenery without ignoring you and your family safe.
1. GET A CORONAVIRUS TEST BEFORE AND AFTER YOUR VACATION
You can get a coronavirus test before and after your vacation, and should postpone your vacation if you feeling sick or cold or any other symptoms.
2. AVOID THE GO THOSE KNOWN CORONAVIRUS HOTSPOTS
You should pay attention to those COVID hotspots, and avoid travel to these spots as COVID-19 is highly contagious.
3. KNOW THE BEACH RULES AHEAD
The rules differ even from county to county and beach to beach, so it's a good idea to know exactly the regulations for the area you plan to travel before you make your trip plan.
4. CLEAN AND SANITIZE YOUR TEMPORARY HOME
Whether you choose to live in a hotel or seaside chalet, it's better to clean and sanitize your temporary home before you arrive.
5. ALWAYS KEEP WEARING A FACE MASK IN PUBLIC
The coronavirus spreads much more easily from person to person, so you need to pack several face masks for yourself and your family, and always keep wearing a face mask in public.
6. KEEP AWAY FROM CROWDED AREAS
Keep away from crowded areas, such as farmers markets, shopping areas, bars, grocery stores, restaurants(you can get your drinks and food to go), and elevators. Stay away from crowded areas; search those spots having fewer people.
7. KEEP SOCIAL DISTANCING
When going out in public, it is important to stay at least 6 feet (about 2 arms’ length) away from other people, even on the beach.
8. FOLLOW THE SAME SAFETY PRACTICES AS USUAL
During vacation, you should continue to follow the same safety practices you would at home, such as avoid touching your face, cover your coughs and sneezes, avoid going to these crowded enclosed indoor spaces, and isolate anyone who shows possible COVID-19 symptoms...
We can still enjoy beach time with our family in this special summer, but first, we need to keep the health and safety of ourselves and family on top of mind.
