The COVID-19 pandemic has impacted every industry, including campgrounds. During the pandemic, many people have turned to camping to provide a fun, safe getaway that allows them to escape the stresses of daily life for a little while. As a campground owner, you want to keep your customers safe as they enjoy what you have to offer. Here are three ways to keep your campground COVID safe.
Provide Hygiene Supplies
One of the most important steps in avoiding COVID is keeping your body clean and safe. This requires things like disposable masks, hand sanitizers, and disinfectants. Make sure that you’re offering these things to the customers at your campground. If they forget to bring their own, this will allow them to stay safe at no further expense. And if you have customers who are reluctant to wear masks when around others, the fact that you have them available will eliminate any excuses. Provide these supplies as part of their reservation and it’ll go a long way toward keeping people safe.
Allow Outdoor Cooking
Covid is easily spread from eating indoors. By offering resources that allow your customers to cook outdoors, you can reduce the risk of spread. 78% of campers cook outdoors while camping, so it is already a common part of the experience. Keep your fire pits and grills in good shape to keep your campers cooking outdoors and avoiding indoor eating while at your campground.
Another way to prevent COVID from spreading is through social distancing. If people stay far apart from one another, this makes it more difficult for the virus to jump to a new host. Limit the number of campers you have in order to allow for easier social distancing. The best way to do this is to require people to reserve their campsites in advance online. This allows you to keep track of how many people will be staying at your campground at a certain time and prevents overcrowding.
Camping can be a great way to escape during the COVID pandemic, but it is important that you keep your campground safe for your visitors. Focus on hygiene and social distancing in order to do this. By prioritizing safety, you’ll avoid COVID spreading on your property and keep everybody safe and happy.
