April 1, 2021
The year 2020 is best described as an analogy: a rollercoaster ride. Communities around the globe have gone through devastating lows and high glimmers of hope. The COVID-19 pandemic created unprecedented change in our lifetime. So what does that mean for travel in 2021? Here’s what to expect while traveling this year.
Although the number of cases has fallen since the peak in November, it’s important to remember that the pandemic is ongoing. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) suggests that travelers: get fully vaccinated if eligible, get tested 1-3 days before a trip, wear a mask properly in public, avoid crowds and stay at least 6 feet from anyone who didn’t travel with you, get tested 3-5 days after travel and self-quarantine once you get back, even if you don’t feel sick and, of course, follow state and local recommendations or requirements.
The CDC also has a helpful Travel Planner. Simply type in the destination and the state’s health department information is readily available, along with frequently asked travel questions. We understand the past year has been exhausting, and frankly, many are ready for life to go back to normal. But for that to happen, we must work together, continue following expert recommendations and think as a community. Motorhomes are the safest form of travel during COVID-19; however, it’s essential to protect your loved ones and others while on the road and once you get to the destination.
At the campground, the precautions will vary by location. Some campgrounds may have closed due to local ordinances, but many have been communicative with updates. KOA, for example, has an updated list of which campgrounds are closed and for how long. For open campgrounds, processes and procedures evolve, which means you should contact your campground for updates before a reservation. Be mindful that campgrounds are doing their best to protect staff and guests, so it’s important to respect their guidelines.
