Summer vacations during COVID-19 era The Do’s and Don’ts
The new way of life has already brought a lot of changes and challenges to our everyday routines. Covid-19 is here and has generated numerous different regulations and different countries have to impose in order to safely get out of this crisis.
BUT what about our summer holidays?
“Will my summer holidays be the same again?”, many of you are wandering.
Well, one thing is for certain. We need to be careful and cautious at all times and especially when we are about to travel to a foreign destination like Greece or to a domestic one by the bus, airplane, train, ferry and all the means of transportation that require sharing the same space and “air” with other people that you don’t know.
There is no need to feel uncomfortable and since you and your family or close ones follow the specific procedures and take the necessary measures, then you are just going to be fine!
Privacy, caution and social distancing are the keys to keep ourselves and other people safe.
