Safer Summer Travel

Summer vacation can be a motivation to work all year long but with travel restrictions and many unknowns, some people aren’t adventuring too far away from home.

Here are some safer ideas to consider for those who are antsy to get back out there and want to be as safe as possible:

Hit the Road. Getting away puts you in the driver seat for controlling your environment and who you are exposed to.

Think Outdoors. Vacations off the beaten path might be a smarter choice than an urban getaway.

Get the vaccine. International travel may require proof of vaccination for entry. Be sure to check local, state or national guidelines ahead of time.

Be flexible. Look for options that allow you to easily change or cancel your plans if needed.

Spend quality time. Focus on loved ones and use vacation time to reconnect with the people you may have missed while social distancing.

NO matter what you decide, be sure to follow CDC guidelines to travel safer. Pack your mask and hand sanitizer as even those who are vaccinated need to take the same precautions.

SUN SCREEN REMINDER: Use a sunscreen of SPF 30 or higher that is broad-spectrum, water resistant and re-apply every two hours or sooner, after towel drying and after sweating or swimming.
