Check out these 5 tips that’ll help you enjoy your favorite beaches while taking care of your health this summer.
As you already know, the COVID-19 virus continues with an increase in cases, therefore trips must be planned responsibly.
It’s important we follow all recommendations like the use of a mask, safety distance between people and hand washing, as well as other more specific ones for beaches, swimming pools, tourist routes or bar terraces.
Following these tips will not only reduce the possibility of infection, it will also help us take care of our health.
Bring the essentials
When you visit the beach, these are some of the items you should carry with you: face masks, hand sanitizer, disinfectant wipes, a bottle of water, and hopefully a hat to prevent the sun from reaching your face directly.
Research the beach you want to visit
Make sure to visit beaches that are mostly empty or with fewer people.
Maintain an ideal distance of two meters between groups that are on the beach.
Avoid crowds at the beach or swimming pools
If your destination is a beach or you like to be in a pool, pay attention to the maximum capacity policies and keep a safe distance of 2 meters.
Avoid using hand sanitizer to enter the sea or the pool in combination with solar radiation, it can cause burns, especially on the most sensitive skins.
Disinfect the surfaces where you put your belongings and when you return to your stay take a shower.
Wear a face mask
Under no circumstances is it good to bathe with a face mask, but it is important that you have it on while you move from one place to another. A face mask will help you have fewer chances of getting COVID and enjoy your vacations to the fullest.
When you want to change your mask on the beach, you should have a plastic or paper bag on hand to store the dirty one until you can throw it away.
Although too much sun is negative for our skin, it is necessary that we expose ourselves to it moderately in order to obtain vitamin D, which contributes to the strengthening of our immune system, always using sunscreen.
If you want to get to know beaches, the ideal thing will be to do it in a private vehicle to avoid contact with other people. Still, it is important to be careful, especially at tolls, gas stations, or places where you buy food.
