As many would agree, dealing with COVID-19 has made us all adopt a new normal. With changes to how we commute, work, and communicate, it can be stressful trying to navigate these unfamiliar rules.
However, when staying in a major city like Toronto, with the help of health experts and government guidelines, settling into your temporary home in Toronto and adapting to these changes doesn’t have to be so scary.
Here are some tips on how you can maintain safety during your stay at one of our downtown Toronto rentals.
The Basics of Public Safety Guidelines in Toronto
Under official public health guidelines, businesses and individuals alike are doing their part in reducing the spread of COVID-19. This has meant increased precautions like contact tracing at many restaurants offering customer seating and limitations to indoor gatherings.
Likewise, for international travellers just landing in the city, you must undergo a 14 day self-isolation period according to Toronto Public Health. And while you’re here, adopting healthy habits can be the best defence in keeping you safe. This includes:
- Wearing a face mask
- Washing your hands frequently with soap and warm water for at least 20 seconds
- Maintaining social distancing or two-meter distance from others
- Staying home if you are sick
Take Advantage of Travel and Booking Flexibility
As we’ve seen throughout this year, how we travel is constantly changing, especially dealing with COVID-19. Understanding this, there are options to help you book your stay in Toronto.
Our company has always been a supporter of green initiatives. All agreements are signed digitally, limiting the number of face-to-face interactions required to finalize your rental. You can view all photos and virtual tours for a specific suite online.
We’re committed to giving you the utmost flexibility, meaning we allow for advanced reservation or short notice cancellations in light of these circumstances.
Commuting Around the City Safely
You have several options available to you when travelling in Toronto. These include public transit with the TTC, taxis, and ride-sharing programs through Uber and Lyft.
If you do have to take transit, the TTC is a great resource. Along with increased transit service and cleaning protocols, to reduce the spread of COVID-19, masks and face covers are mandatory on the TTC as of September 2020. As well, maintaining social distancing and constant hand washing when travelling helps to keep you safe.
Using google maps or Rocketman for the TTC to track when your next bus arrives will allow you to plan your trip ahead of time. This way you do not have to worry about asking for directions or getting lost around the city. And with our 15 locations all around the city and the GTA, transit accessibility and safely reaching your destination is not a problem.
Work Remotely From Home
In the effort of reducing the spread of COVID-19, more people are working right from home. With everyone trying to adapt to this new work environment, video conferencing tools like Zoom have become essential to how we communicate and conduct our business. Luckily, you never have to worry about buffering or missing a call with our high-speed internet and wi-fi available throughout your stay at our downtown Toronto rentals.
All of our downtown Toronto rentals also include local and North American long-distance calling. Additionally, certain units come with work desks and chairs.
