3. Short-distance walks at Vacation Village at Weston
Families that feel more comfortable staying close to the resort may consider taking a walk just around the grounds.
Staying active keeps your body and mind healthy, and outdoor activities are fun ways to get fresh air and sunshine. Before heading out for the day, remember to pack a lunch or snack and some water.
Resorts are Family Focused
Rather than heading to the restaurants, families can use their in-suite kitchen for meals during their stay. The kitchens are also great for keeping and reheating delivery and pick-up meals.
Returning owners can continue safe social distancing practices while staying in their home away from home. For instance, owners can ask the resort’s concierge about movie rentals for in-suite entertainment.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has no evidence that the Coronavirus spreads through properly maintained water, such as swimming pools and hot tubs. Vacation Village at Weston treats and disinfects all pools and hot tubs with the proper amount of chlorine, which kills most germs within minutes.
Tips for traveling after COVID-19:
· Wash your hands frequently with warm water and soap, particularly after returning from being out in public.
· Continue to wear masks and keep a 6-foot distance when in public spaces.
· Take turns with enclosed spaces, like elevators.
· Cover your mouth when you sneeze or cough.
· Avoid touching your face.
· Keep hand sanitizer nearby.
The best tip is to be smart while enjoying your vacation. The country is returning back to normal slowly, and you can keep your family healthy while creating lifelong memories.
More About COVID-19
The CDC states that contact with other people is the main method the Coronavirus spreads. While the virus may be on objects and other surfaces, the CDC does not have evidence that touching surfaces is a high risk for spread. Additionally, cleaning with antibacterial products sanitizes surfaces.
The virus does not spread through drinking water since municipal water systems treatment methods filter and disinfect. As stated above, the CDC also confirms that recreational water areas do not contribute to the spread when properly treated with chloride and bromine.
Florida and Coronavirus
Florida had its first reported COVID-19 case on February 29, 2020. The state acted quickly and warned high-risk residents and senior citizen living facilities to prepare by closing to the general public. Additionally, officials asked residents to avoid trips overseas.
During the next 30 days, the state declared an emergency and set up a Coronavirus hotline for residents with questions. Theme parks and tourist attractions closed, followed by bars, non-essential businesses, and beaches. Restaurant service was limited to pick up and delivery only.
On April 1, 2020, Governor DeSantis mandated a Stay-at-Home Emergency Order statewide to flatten the curve and stop the spread of the virus.
The state began reopening businesses in South Florida in the first week of May. Businesses in Broward County, where Vacation Village at Weston is located, began reopening the third week of May. In the first phase of reopening, Florida restaurants and stores open with limited capacity. Under the same capacity restrictions and guidelines, the state opened more businesses that are non-essential, such as hair salons, bars, and gyms, after monitoring and testing.
