What’s In Your Holiday Travel Bag?

The festive holidays are here and the countdown to Christmas (and a few days away from the home office desk) have begun! While the holiday travel traditions may look a little different this year, we understand that being locked up within four walls and hopping from Zoom call to Zoom call - for nearly a whole year has been quite the experience. So, a short, close knit, safe trip to the beach isn’t such a bad idea right?

Well, if you’re going to go ahead with it, be sure to stay safe, do thorough background checks on whether where you’re staying is MOH compliant and if they've gone the extra mile to put in measures to reduce the spread of the virus and if they’ll be limiting guests and contact in common areas.

Now that you have that sorted, here's where we come in; with a quick list of what you need in your holiday travel bag to ensure that you have a stress free, holiday trip.

A couple of reusable, environment-friendly face masks
