Plan your work, work your plan 

While all states have reopened to one degree or another, there are a lot of places where business regulations and rules for avoiding COVID-19 infections will vary from county to county or city to city. By getting a clear idea of where you’re going and how you’ll get there, you’ll be able to know what you can expect to find. You probably already have a smartphone or two in the family, having the ability to go online while you’re on the road will help you avoid problems. 

Keep it up 

We have all been dealing with the changes to our everyday lives during the time of COVID-19. You have probably already gotten used to wearing a mask when you’re at the store and giving people plenty of space when you’re standing in line. These things will be universally helpful when you travel. As always avoiding crowded indoor spaces is very important to staying healthy. 

Get a check-up (for your vehicle) 

Our last tip for staying safe during a Labor Day weekend getaway is to make sure your vehicle is as healthy as you are. A blown tire or mechanical breakdown will stop a vacation in its tracks, now, just like it would at any other point in history.
