It's my last weekend before settling into my new home with the family. I have to leave where I'm currently residing tomorrow, but can't move into my new place until the 1st. It only made sense to book a hotel room for these few interim days, but I wanna make sure I take extra precautions because pandemic.

I trust hotel staff fine enough, but even in non-Covid times it's good to sanitize extra. Make sure you have disinfectant spray as well as wipes at the ready. You'll do well to remember that a hotel TV remote is one of the dirtiest surfaces in existence and waiting 3 minutes after spraying a surface down before touching it is most effective.

Decline housekeeping. Minimizing the number of people going in and out of your room lessens the risk of infection. Along those same lines, ask for a room that hasn't been occupied for a few days. Considering not a ton of people are staying in hotels lately, the odds are good this will be accommodated.

Bringing your own food and cutlery as opposed to ordering room service or dining out also helps minimize risk. Basically staying in your own germ bubble is the way to go. Have you stayed in a hotel since the pandemic hit? If so, how comfortable did you feel? I'm still a little nervous, but I'm going to make the best of it.
