Many people ditched their camping plans last year because of the coronavirus pandemic. For many reasons, the decisions are worthy of praise. With some levels of progress made already in combating the virus, it is expected that many will start doing the things they love doing once again.
Are you planning to go camping? You can actually do that safely during COVID. The truth is that camping is regarded as one of the safer forms of recreation you can enjoy right now. You just have to take precautionary measures. Here are some safety precautions you can take:
Choose Your Campground Carefully
It is true that most campgrounds take relevant measures to ensure that their facilities are as safe as possible. It is still important that you research carefully to ensure that your destination is safe. Make reservations earlier and monitor its capacity too.
Pack Everything You Need at Home
Stopping on the road to get some supplies is unnecessary in this period. The few minutes it may take to walk into an unknown store and grab a few things can be enough to contract the virus, risking your life and that of your co-campers at the same time.
Keep Your Camp Crew Small
While it is relatively safe to camp, doing so in a large crowd is unwise and dangerous. Avoid crowded campgrounds. In addition, keep your camping crew small. It is not advisable to go camping with extended family members and many friends. You can go with your immediate family or a loved one.
Don’t Be in a Haste to Take Off Your Face Mask
Wearing face masks is still very important even as you enjoy various interesting activities in the campground. Don’t be in haste to take off your mask for any reason.
As Much as Possible, Avoid Sharing
It is important that you pack everything you need before heading to a campground. There is love in sharing, but that love can wait until it is safe to share. Do not share anything that touches the mouth, face, and eyes.
In everything you do, ensure that you obey the important COVID guidelines. Maintain social distancing and sanitize your hands as often as possible.
