July 21, 2020 0 Comments

The last few months have been a complete whirlwind. We stayed home. We DIY-ed. We (maybe) worked out. One thing we didn’t do? Beach.

Now that summer is here, we’re more than ready to hit the sand. Fortunately, many of our favorite destinations are starting to reopen, but you may still be curious about what vacationing in the new norm means for you. Fear not, fellow beach lovers! We’ve got you covered from beginning to end.

Stay Safe While Flying

Airlines have been doing a great job working with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) as well as the World Health Organization (WHO) to ensure that your health and safety come first. While these procedures may vary by airline, you’ll commonly find that masks are required for passengers and staff, along with the use of hand sanitizer wipes and quality disinfectants on high-touch surfaces to prevent the spread of infection.

Be Prepared When Landing

Most destinations have several safety precautions for travelers upon landing, which may include face coverings, social distancing, and temperature checks. Keep in mind, these procedures vary by destination. If you’re in the process of booking your vacay, it’s best to stay informed and continuously check for any health and safety updates. That way, you’ll always know what to expect!
