For many, the winter season and the holidays within are some of the happiest times of the year. It is a chance to visit family, give and receive presents, and experience an all-around feeling of joy as you see the holiday lights and decorations. If you are planning to travel this winter, then you need to do so safely as you are faced with colder weather, varied road conditions, and of course, COVID-19.
No matter how you travel this year, the pandemic will play a factor. But that doesn’t necessarily mean you cannot go where you want. Below we offer some helpful tips that should help you salvage some of those happy holiday memories in 2020.
Consider Staying Home
While you may be excited about winter travel, you should seriously consider the idea that you might have to sit this year out. The COVID-19 pandemic is still alive and well, and many experts are recommending that people remain extra cautious this holiday season, especially if you are in the more at-risk classes that include older people and those with pre-existing conditions. This doesn’t mean you can’t have fun where you live. As long as you find outdoor activities where you can socially distance, you can still celebrate safety.
