Americans across the country—and people all around the world—have been cooped up for months in an attempt to slow the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic. If you’re one of the many who are going a little stir-crazy while stuck at home, you might consider a contactless bed and breakfast experience in Harpers Ferry, WV to get away from it all.
While vacations will undoubtedly be different in the COVID-19 era and beyond, booking a stay at an apartment-style bed and breakfast is the perfect way to get a change of scenery while exploring the natural beauty of Harpers Ferry.
COVID-19 travel recommendations and restrictions
We’ve all heard that travel is restricted or banned during COVID-19—the more people stay home, the harder it is for the virus to spread. However, as states start reopening, we expect to see more people traveling.
As of early May, West Virginia has eased its travel and stay-at-home restrictions. Small businesses are allowed to reopen, while small gatherings between households are permitted. Social distancing and the use of masks are recommended, of course, but residents are no longer required to stay home except for essential errands and work. Now residents are simply encouraged to stay home whenever possible.
As we know, staying at home for months on end can be an isolating experience. That’s why booking a contactless bed and breakfast stay is a reasonably safe alternative, so long as you follow the CDC’s guidelines for travel.
First, consider the travel restrictions for your specific state or county versus the one you’re traveling to. Is it allowed? Will you have to quarantine before or after? How will you get there? The fewer people with whom you come in contact, the better.
Second, consider the spread of COVID-19 in your community and your destination. If you have been exposed to COVID-19 or are feeling sick in any way, please stay home until the incubation period has passed (usually about two weeks).
Finally, consider whether you live with a person at high risk of contracting the virus. If they’re especially susceptible to complications, staying home is the best way to protect them.
