Pandemic First Aid Kit
According to Jeff Weinstein, Senior Medical Officer and Medical Operations Supervisor at Global Rescue, which provides travelers with medical and crisis assistance, you need seven things.
You probably already have three: masks, a hand sanitizer and a hand sanitizer.
Carry isopropyl alcohol wipes and use them to wipe your phone. Big smartphone makers say they won’t harm devices.
Bring some washing powder to wash reusable masks during night trips.
Fever is one of the symptoms of Covid-19, so bring a thermometer with you to measure temperature.
Also consider a digital pulse oximeter that measures oxygen levels non-invasively. Any reading below 94% is relevant, says Weinstein. Prices vary, and some are less than $ 30.
Daniel Desir, 29 years old, always packs snacks and disposable napkins, and pre-studies its purpose in order to learn about the restrictions.

29-year-old Daniel Desir, living in Bridgeport, Connecticut, will not go anywhere without masks, hand sanitizer and hand wipes.
“We pack our own water and snacks,” said Desir, who has Affordable Travel Podcast and personal finance. “We are not always sure what will be available at the destination, and we do not want to be rejected.”
In fact, be prepared for the upset: Desir and her boyfriend went camping and found that the tower at the top of the mountain was closed. “The site did not mention it,” she said.
It’s important to be aware of the steps involved in opening the place you are visiting.
“Be sure to go to the tourism council in the region to find out the news and find out what things will be open,” Desir said. For example, some restaurants may only offer takeaway dishes. Others may require a reservation.
Clean this car
Perhaps even more dangerous than sitting on an airplane, says Dan Richards, CEO of Global Rescue, sitting in a rented car or taxi.
If you rent, be sure to wipe and sanitize the surfaces. Richards says open windows and doors and let the car air out – it should take five to 10 minutes. Your own car is safe, he adds.
