Safety First! Lessons from the COVID-19 Crisis on Practicing Safety in Las Vegas
As the number of COVID-19 cases continues to climb, the general public is regarding this situation as a cautionary tale for our future generations.
In addition to the general lack of personal space, the spread of the COVID-19 virus shows how quickly something infectious can spread and how susceptible we can all be, despite maintaining an overall healthy way of life.
Especially in major cities like Las Vegas, many restaurants and businesses are using the COVID-19 outbreak as the reason for newer laws and changes being put in place. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is also encouraging people to follow basic personal safety guidelines, so people can be safe, wherever they may be.
Here’s the lowdown on what these rules and guidelines are!
How to Avoid Getting Sick
– Maintain An Arm’s Length Distance at All Times
Aside from your immediate household, it’s recommended that people maintain a distance of at least three feet from others. The COVID-19 virus is spread when a person expels airborne particles of the virus by sneezing, coughing, or even breathing. Maintaining distance will ensure that people do not come in direct contact with a sick person.
– Sanitize What You Touch
Although casinos in Las Vegas are planning to space out the slot machines and sanitize the floors, we still recommend carrying hand sanitizer and antibacterial hand wipes with you when you use the machine. Sanitize your hands, use a wipe to clean anything you’re about to touch, then play.
– Don’t Opt for Discounted Rooms
Remember, you get what you pay for. With discounted, low-rated rooms, it’s very likely that they won’t receive a five-star cleaning treatment. When planning a trip to Vegas, either book a hotel at the right price or stay at a loved one’s residence, so you know you’re in safe hands.
– Don’t Travel Unnecessarily
You might want to delay your experience of people-watching while sitting in a coffee shop for some time. Unless it’s necessary, it’s better to stay at home than to walk around, just for the sake of eliminating boredom. Even if we find a way of controlling the COVID-19 pandemic, it will be some time before we’re able to eliminate it. So, practice caution and stay indoors.
– Be Respectful of Other People’s Safety
When customers use Cubby for short-term luggage storage services in Las Vegas, we receive many requests from people asking if they should disinfect their luggage before handing it over. And the answer is always yes. It’s essential to be mindful of the situation at hand and what we can do to prevent it. If you can do your small part in keeping people safe, do it.
Cubby offers bag storage services in multiple cities, including Washington, D.C., Atlanta, Galveston, Dallas, Atlanta, Austin, Houston, Fort Worth, San Antonio, and Redwood City. And for all destinations, we’re doing our best to spread the message about safety and hygiene.
So, follow suit and make the above rules a part of your daily routine. You’ll feel happier knowing you’re doing all you can to keep yourself and others safe!
