  • Avoid Public Transport as Much as Possible. I’m not discriminating the public transport, but you will have higher chance of getting infected with Covid-19 virus in public transport. Since, different people from different place that are in and out.

Use a private vehicle or at least rent one, this will limit or minimize your chance of acquiring the virus, and you will have more time to enjoy in your travel rather than getting pissed waiting for a ride to reach your destination.
