Summer Travel Recommendations from the CDC Part 2

It is only fair that after such an unusual year spent cooped up in our homes that people will want to travel. Here are some additional recommendations from the CDC for taking your summer vacation.

Camping is also relatively safe, according to the CDC, as long as one is staying in a camper or tent only with members of their household and/or vaccinated people. They recommend trying to avoid shared toilet facilities if possible.

For food since they recommend staying in a cabin or vacation home, an RV or camping bringing your own food and cooking or getting take-out and/or delivery is the safest option. Going out to a restaurant, according to the CDC, is less safe but acceptable if the space is well ventilated, social distancing can be maintained and that the staff and other patrons are adhering to mask policies.

Long distance travel, travel by air, train or bus, traveling over seas are all considered far less safe by the CDC. Additionally, staying in hotels, motels or bed and breakfasts is considered less safe than the options listed above. Attending crowded events are visiting crowded attractions is not recommended.

The CDC suggest an RV as a possible all around good solution to travel and vacation this summer as long as the travel party in the RV is only from your household and/or vaccinated people.
