If you have a box of masks at the ready you at least won’t have to worry about beating the rush if the time arises. Plan for the worst, hope for the best – Always have masks at the ready.
- Wash your hands frequently and use hand sanitizer
If you haven’t already adopted a strict sanitizing regime then if you are looking to travel, there is no time like the present to start. If you are spending time in public places then you should be sanitizing your hands frequently, especially if you are travelling to places you wouldn’t normally spend time at.
- Download the Covidsafe APP
An absolute necessity before travelling anywhere is to download the Covidsafe App and to always have it open on your mobile. The benefits of having the Covidsafe App are the you will be kept up to date with any changes regarding outbreaks and restrictions. It will also help with contact tracing if you are unlucky enough to be stuck when any new cases emerge.
