How to Stay Safe and Have Fun While Traveling During Covid
2020 has certainly changed the way we do things. However, that doesn't mean everything has to come to a standstill. If you are traveling or planning a summer 2021 Asheville mountain vacation there are things that you can do to make sure you have a safe and fun trip. Here is all the latest information you need to know to travel safely during Covid-19.
After planning, get your supplies in order. This includes products for keeping hands and surfaces clean and sanitized. It is a good idea to pack hand sanitizer, disinfecting wet wipes, disposable gloves, sealable disposable plastic bags and tissues. If you have small children make sure to have appropriate cleaners and supplies for them.
Road trips are fun, but require a little extra care
Road trips are fun, but it's a good idea to remember that you are out of your normal routine. Make sure to remind yourself to wash your hands or use hand sanitizer more frequently. This is especially true after touching gas pumps, the windshield washing squeegee and of course, after using public restrooms. The simple fact is – you can't wash your hands too often.
Travel and school
One hidden blessing of Covid is that with schools shifting to virtual classes, it has freed up families to choose from a broader range of vacation times. Now you can take that extended ski trip in February or a longer spring break. Almost all of our well-appointed cabins have Wi-Fi, making it easy to not only take a vacation, but keep the kids up to date with their class work.
Wear a mask
There seems to be a lot of debate about masks, but all the scientists agree that wearing masks is a good idea. Here in Asheville you will find that most businesses do require you to wear a mask. No matter where you are traveling, it is a good idea to wear a mask in public. This helps protect you and the other members of your family. Luckily, you'll be enjoying all those fun mountain adventures that won't require a mask. Just be prepared and have one ready for those times you do.
Choose dine in or delivery
Vacations are about food, wait, ok ... maybe more than just food, but we all love a great meal while on vacation. You might choose to take advantage of the well-appointed kitchens in our vacation rentals. If you are staying in a rental close to town you could use a delivery services like GrubHub or Uber Eats, both of which are easy to use and offer contactless delivery. Greek, Chinese, Vegan, Thai, Indian – well you get the picture. All just a few button pushes away.
Cabins are perfect vacation homes
Forget hotels. Why share a hallway with a bunch of strangers coming and going? With our safe, clean and well-appointed cabins you can vacation with your family all while maintaining proper social distancing. All of our cabins are thoroughly cleaned and sanitized prior to your visit. Stay in comfort and with peace of mind surrounded by your immediate family in the beautiful Asheville area.
Mountain adventures are perfect for social distancing
We all know by now that social distancing is an effective and important way to prevent the spread of Coronavirus. One of the easiest ways to practice social distancing is to head into the mountains. Whether you want to go hiking, skiing, snowshoeing or cycling, all are the perfect activities for social distancing. No matter how you choose to spend your time, there are plenty of ways to do so while staying safe in and around Asheville.
Cards, not cash
Covid or not, cash is dirty. Think of all those hands touching your money. When on the road, one of the best things you can do is to use your card instead of cash.
Most gas stations and most retail vendors use touchless payment systems which are a great way to pay.
One of our favorite ways to pay for things is with Apple Pay. It is easy to use and a great way to start using touchless payments.
