Travel light and lower your risk of exposure
Even though you are not travelling to China, you’re still be exposed to the risk of catching the flu whenever you are out in a public space — especially at the airport and public transport. At Cube Self Storage, we encourage you to take preventive measures for any infections seriously. So, here’s what you can do to prevent yourself from getting infected during your travel:
1. Practice hand hygiene
Indeed, hand hygiene practice is simple yet it is proven to be one of the most effective ways to prevent infections. Cleaning your hands helps to prevent the spread of viruses. So, make sure to wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after going to the bathroom; after coughing, sneezing or blowing your nose; and before eating. Always carry an alcohol-based hand sanitizer (at least 60% alcohol) when you’re travelling because soap and water may not be readily available everywhere. Always be aware of sick people, avoid close contact with them, and never touch your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
2. Keep calm and wear a facemask.
The best thing you can do when travelling now is to keep calm and take every preventive measure seriously, including wearing a facemask whenever you’re outside. However, it is important to be mindful when purchasing facemasks; refrain from hoarding masks ‘just in case’ you need them later, as this may lead to a lack of masks in places and for people who really need it.
3. Spend less time in public spaces when travelling
Reduce your waiting time at the airport by travelling light. The lesser the time you spend being in public spaces, the lower the risk for you to get infected by any viruses. Other benefits of travelling light includes, no excess baggage or checked baggage fees, makes multi-destinations trips less of a hassle, and of course quicker and efficient mobility. One way to make travelling light possible is to use a self storage. Store your belongings with Cube Self Storage and travel only with your essentials. We’ll make sure your items are safe and protected while you’re away.
