With the global coronavirus pandemic rapidly shutting down businesses and limiting travel across the United States and around the world, Mid Florida RV Rentals remains an option for safe transport while minimizing exposure to COVID-19. If you find it necessary to travel during the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, renting an RV is one way to ensure a healthy driver and avoid coming into contact with other people who could be infected with the virus. An RV can also function as a safe space for companies to continue conducting critical business during the coronavirus outbreak.
COVID-19 is a new strain of human coronavirus that first emerged in Wuhan, China in December 2019. Little is known about this novel respiratory virus, except that it can cause severe illness and pneumonia in some people. To date, 266,175 people have become infected with coronavirus worldwide and 11,186 people have died. The virus is found in droplets from the nose and throat and can be spread when an infected person sneezes or coughs, similar to the way in which influenza is spread. Coronavirus can also be spread when someone touches an object with the virus on it and then touches their face, mouth, nose or eyes.
Most people infected with COVID-19 experience mild symptoms and recover, while others may face a life-threatening medical situation. In order to reduce the spread of coronavirus and help “flatten the curve,” health officials are recommending that people avoid congregating in large groups. By limiting your contact with others, you can minimize your exposure to COVID-19 and reduce your risk of developing coronavirus.
The rapid spread of coronavirus has resulted in drastic measures being taken to stop the virus from spreading. Sporting events, festivals, cruises, trips and other gatherings likely to draw a crowd have been canceled in an effort to slow the spread of coronavirus. According to the CDC website, “CDC does not generally issue advisories or restrictions for travel within the United States. However, cases of coronavirus disease (COVID-19) have been reported in many states, and some areas are experiencing community spread of the disease.”
Fortunately, RVing remains an option for those who find it necessary to travel during the coronavirus outbreak and want to avoid large crowds or crowded spaces. RVing provides a safe environment for you and your family to travel and minimizes your contact with many of the germs commonly found in hotels and airports and on cruise ships, which could potentially expose you to coronavirus. With an RV, you can escape to your favorite remote destination, enjoy some fresh air away from the company of others and avoid exposure to coronavirus in your self-contained home on wheels.
