Here is how to Enjoy Hof Gorei Samal Island Resort during this Pandemic

In this time of the Coronavirus crisis, have you ever asked yourself, “Can I go on a beach vacation, without over thinking or worrying about getting infected by Coronavirus disease?” Actually, it is a common question for beach lovers all around the globe. As the days get sunnier and warmer, it’s no surprise that people are craving to head and hit the waves of the beach. In fact, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), a national public health institute in the United States strongly advised their citizens to go out to relieve stress, breath fresh air and get a natural vitamin D from the sun.

However, with our current situation, as with any public outdoor activity, takingoff to the beach these days can have both benefits and risks. In that case, how can you enjoy your trusted Hof Gorei family-oriented beach resort without worrying about getting sick? The key is to take the necessary and appropriate health precautions. For our regular and valued clients, if you’re eager and tired of your daily routine inside your home, please come do and visit your Hof Gorei family resort–your safe home away from home. But first, let’s check the general rules on how you would do it safely in visiting beach resorts anywhere around the world.

 Thoroughly check the rules of the place you want to visit:

It is better to check first if they do social distancing and other related health protocols that you and your family would feel comfortably safe, not to mention your Hof Gorei beach resort is safely secluded on the west part of Samal Island and we have the vastest ground area among other resorts here in our island. So, it is safe to say that physical distancing with our other important guests in our beach resort is no issue. Besides, before the pandemic, it is already a common practice for our valued clients that they would have the feel of exclusiveness and
the privacy of having the experience of luxury of royalty. Furthermore, the beach activities that you’ve enjoyed doing here in our resort before have never changed.

On the other hand, Coronavirus-related requirements for other beaches may differ among countries, states and even among neighboring towns. While some are open for all activities without restriction, others allow beach access only for running, walking, swimming or fishing, but not for lounging or picnics. Some areas are also implementing measures to help reduce crowding. That means continuinggood social distancing practices, including maintaining at least six feet between yourself and other people.

 Remember repeatedly your safety basics:

As we are so preoccupied with Coronavirus safety. We spend too much energy and focus our attention on it. Just a friendly reminder, let’s not forget our safety basics. For instance, we tend to think about physical distancing and
unintentionally we forget to swim responsibly. Attempting to keep your social distance from other swimmers. However, when you’re at our humble paradise like a beach resort it is not relevant. Just be careful not to wander too far from our lifeguard-protected zone.

Another common safety basic thing is the sun protection while at the beach. According to Joshua Zeichner, director of cosmetic and clinical research at Mount Sinai Hospital in New York urges all beachgoers to practice smart sun protection and this includes:

●Wearing protective clothing and a wide-brimmed hat.
●Using a broad-spectrum sunscreen with an SPF of 30 or higher.
●Applying a full ounce of sunscreen for your entire body. If you’re not in a bathing suit, use a quarter-sized dollop for your face, ears and neck, and one for each leg and arm.
●Reapplying every two hours or after swimming or heavy sweating.
●Applying sunscreen to your entire face even if you’re wearing a mask.

Once again let’s review the common thing to do during this Coronavirus pandemic crisis. The basic advisory of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) says about how you should smartly think about your risk.

Here’s how to think about your risk:

 Take the usual precautions. The CDC’s advice is familiar now, and you should stay vigilant about it: Wash your hands often, don’t touch your face, stay six feet away from others, and wear a mask. Remember: The problem is people. “This is an infection that is associated with density — lots of people — and duration of exposure,” says Seth Welles, professor of epidemiology and biostatistics at Drexel’s Dornsife School of public health. “If you can think about those, you can reduce your risk.” So: Outside is better than inside, less populated areas may be safer
than denser areas. And it is possible to spread the virus without feeling sick. Don’t be that guy.

 Check what’s happening where you’re going. Wardle says it’s a good idea to check local coronavirus statistics — like the number of cases — for the area before you go. “Just like if someone were to travel to Florida during
hurricane season, you want to make sure no hurricane is coming,” he says. “You want to do the same thing here.” You should also check what local rules are in place, like whether you will have to quarantine when you get there.

 Staying local may just be safer, says Michael LeVasseur, a visiting assistant professor of epidemiology and biostatistics at Drexel University’s Dornsife School of Public Health. That way, he says, you can avoid the exposure you may have during a long road trip. “If you are traveling cross-country and you have to stop every 12 hours to rest, maybe that is repeated exposure over time with more places,” LeVasseur says. “I would stay local.”
