:

  1. Travel by Car. Avoiding public transportation including trains, buses, planes because it reduces exposure to both other people and relying upon air exchange and filtration issues, as well as non-compliance by other passengers.  
  2. Take a Day Trip. Consider a day trip where you return back to your home at the end of the day. Leave early, arrive home late, sleep in your own bed to avoid any concerns for the cleanliness of the hotel, AirBnB, etc.
