You should also wash your hands frequently after visiting washrooms and/or when your hands are dirtied after coughing or sneezing.

2) Plan your itinerary and pack ahead

Planning beforehand is always helpful. To ensure that your plans are not disrupted, do check online for details pertaining to your event or sites that you may be visiting. You may visit your event website or event social media page to get the latest update on the event schedule and to learn more about the additional precautions that are in place.

Please pack sufficiently for your trip and have on-hand necessities and personal items such as masks, thermometers, water bottles, antibacterial wipes and hand sanitisers.

3) Look out for your travel companions or colleagues

Wear a mask if you feel unwell or when you display respiratory symptoms such as a cough or runny nose.

More importantly, remember to look out for one another and be mindful of your own health at all times.

During your spare time after your event, take your time to explore our museums and galleries and keep calm in the company of art and history. Go on a leisurely walk in the outdoors such as Coney Island or the Southern Ridges, for some much-needed Vitamin E.

Remind yourself to stay safe, appreciate the moments, and travel responsibly.
