    Do hotel soap bars kill germs?

    Favorite Answer:

    Yes, of course they do. All soaps kill germs. That's the purpose of soap. Before the pandemic, many experts recommended just washing hands with soap, not using hand sanitizers. Soap is sufficient by itself. The point of hand sanitizers is that you can carry them around and use them even when you don't have water available.

    How long can you leave England for (traveling to the US, POST-COVID) while remaining on British Health Insurance/Coverage?

    Hi,

    For background, I am living in the US but have 2 grandparents who live in England. As they get older, it has been generally accepted that they cannot move here as they will be unable to get health insurance or it will be astronomically high (grandfather has recently survived cancer)

    1. Is this true?

    As I thought about this, I was curious how long they could travel for without losing their Health Insurance/Coverage. For example, could they stay here for 3 months, 6 months, 1 year? If they were to get ill here, would they be covered or would all expenses be paid as if they were un-insured?

    Appreciate any links that may provide further details or agencies I could inquire with further.

    Thank you.

    Do you use the safety deposit boxes at hotels when on tropical vacations?

    I heard that medications go missing along with money and jewelleries. I would use them cos that would make me paranoid if my medication went missing from my hotel room. I have all over body skin infections, and I wonder what on earth I'm gonna use if my homeopathic meds and cream go missing.

    Motion Sickness?

    I think I might have some form of motion sickness. I get headaches almost every day, sometimes I feel nauseous. When this happens I feel like the room is spinning. I also get tunnel vision several times a day(which has been happening for years (I asked when this first started happening and he told me that it might be caused by puberty but I finished puberty a while ago and this is still happening?)) These “symptoms” occur usually occur when I’m doing something that involves movement. Like walking down the stairs, getting up from a sitting position too quickly, and standing up for too long. The symptoms also get worse when I’m in things like cars. Is this a form of motion sickness, something completely different, or should I be getting tests done?

    Is it okay to travel to Ireland?

    So me and my friend were looking into traveling to Ireland this January to explore what the Island has to offer. We are from the United States. Is it still safe/smart to travel? I know that there would be restrictions, such as wearing masks and social  distancing. But will there still be things to do, whether outdoors or indoors? Is the Guinness brewery in Dublin open? Please help!

    Are U.S. citizens still able to travel?

    There are very few international destinations that accept travelers from the US due to the high rates of coronavirus infection in the US. Other than diplomats and essential travel there aren't many options.

    Are people mad for visiting countries abroad during this time?

    Even to visit relatives they should be waiting until a vaccine comes next year to fly abroad as it's still not completely safe. What do you think about people visiting and flying to other countries abroad during this time?

    Tips for first 4-5 hour drive alone?

    Favorite Answer:

    Four hours is not long enough so that you would be falling asleep at the wheel. Your main concern is the driver safety and not getting bored. So you might try to do the drive in in a manner that you avoid the rush hour and listen to a good audiobook on your mobile device.

    How to deal with motion sickness?

    I've had severe motion sickness since I was little and I never knew how to prevent/cure it. When the motion sickness kicks in, my head hurts extremely bad and I have to lay down and I vomit here and there and fall in and out of sleep. I've tried medicine but that doesn't work. I've never been able to travel far; so I've only been around the city that I live in. I want to be able to travel and live my life but I can't seem to stop having motion sickness. Does anyone have motion sickness and how do you stop it? Please help.
