Basically, while traveling you can transmit the virus to people around you for fourteen days from exposure, even if you are asymptomatic.
If these risks still do not discourage you from traveling during the pandemic, there are several things you should do to reduce the risk of transmitting the corona virus while on vacation. The steps in question are:

Some of the equipment you must bring include:
• Masks (bring enough spare).
• Hand sanitizers.
• Disinfectant to spray objects around you.

• Packaged food and beverages.
Other things to consider before going out of town are:
• If you are out of the red zone area, avoid visiting let alone staying at a relative’s house (especially elderly relatives).
