How can RV travelers help to prevent the spread of coronavirus?
You can still enjoy the fresh air outdoors during this time of social distancing! While planned activities and live entertainment are canceled, for the time being, you can still take the time to enjoy the peace of nature and stay out of harm’s way.
- Disinfect Your RV
- Sanitizing on the Go
- Connect with Nature
- Follow Safety Precautions
1) Disinfect Your RV
If you’ve already started spring cleaning your RV, you’re a step ahead of the game. Clean dirty surfaces in your travel trailer with soap and water then disinfect with an alcohol-based solution. Rugs, furniture, and drapes can be vacuumed and laundered to remove debris and any stains. It’s recommended to clean and disinfect frequently touched surfaces daily!
2) Sanitizing on the Go
Make sure you have all the supplies you need if you are taking a trip away from home. If you don’t have access to soap and running water, have some hand sanitizer on deck for your hiking adventure. Bring a disposable baggy of some sort to take care of used tissues when covering a cough or sneeze, if you don’t have a trash can immediately nearby.
3) Connect with Nature
If you’re going to be self-isolating, why not do it in the great outdoors? There are plenty of outdoor activities to enjoy on your own or with the family while you’re taking a break from the city’s amenities. Some activities that require rentals like kayaking or fishing might be limited, but you can always read, write, pray, meditate and go for a walk in nature.
4) Follow Safety Precautions
We all have a responsibility to follow the necessary precautions implemented by the CDC during the threat of coronavirus. This means no gatherings of more than 10 people, and self-quarantining when needed to prevent the spread of sickness. The people most at risk of being affected by COVID-19 are the elderly and immunocompromised; they must be kept in mind as a reminder of why we are socially distancing ourselves.
Pro Tip: You can apply the same protective measures that you would at home to your RV; by keeping your hands clean, disinfecting surfaces, and distancing yourself from others.
Staying Happy & Healthy in Your RV
When using your RV as you practice social distancing, treat it like your home away from home. Distance yourself from those who are possibly sick and if you are sick, make sure to self-quarantine as necessary. Practice good hand hygiene and frequently wiping down surfaces to ensure the safety of yourself and your family.
