BEFORE YOU TRAVEL
The “Essential” Packing List
Aside from the obvious packing necessities like clothes, underwear, toothbrushes and other items, there are some essential items to keep in mind that aren’t so easily replaceable— especially if you’re faced with an unexpected delay or change of plans due to COVID-19. Make sure you add these to your vacation packing list and, before you travel, do a last-minute check to make sure all of them are present and accounted for. In addition, if flying, consider putting them in a carry-on bag in case your luggage is lost:
- Mobile Device(s)
- Device Charger(s)
- Travel Adapters (if traveling internationally)
- Eye Glasses/Contact Lenses & Solution
- Extra Masks/Hand Sanitizer (COVID-19)
