Introducing FleeCOVID

Startup Sep 24, 2020

Hi Everyone 👋

It's been a while! I hope you’ve all been staying safe in these troubling times. As some of you may have known, I've been taking some time away from this blog to work on my own startup/projects. This pandemic has not only caused an unprecedented change in how I've been operating, but it has fundamentally changed the lives of every individual around us.

My team and I have spent a lot of time working on HipHerd, a platform that uses machine learning to help you plan your trip in minutes. Yep that's right. A travel a time of COVID. Not the brightest move in the world, but how were we supposed to predict a global pandemic?!

To adapt to these sudden changes, we’ve been working diligently and we (like you) have been stuck in the house…. under one roof.... for six months. It’s been a bit stressful, but we feel like we now have a solution for that! Building on top of what my team and I have been doing for the last couple of years, we’d like to introduce to you a new product we’ve been working on, called FleeCOVID.

FleeCOVID helps you find getaway spots while traveling responsibly during COVID-19. We built FleeCOVID because we know that safe, responsible travel is still possible without needing to hop on a plane. Let's face it, if you’re in the U.S, you probably haven't done any leisure travel in over half a year. Wanderlust is making us all itchy and the travel bug bites are scarring. COVID-19 isn’t going away anytime soon and although extravagant travel may not be possible, that does not mean that you can’t go anywhere.

We handcrafted some travel guides to help inspire you to discover other ways to take some time off while staying safe. Even if you’re not interested in traveling, we help you stay informed by providing the latest travel guidelines and rules in the areas around you. With FleeCOVID, you can:

  • 🚙  Discover responsible travel ideas and guides
  • 🏠  Explore a curated list of long-term remote stay locations
  • 😷  Stay informed on the mask policy for each state
  • 📢  Receive the latest travel guidelines for each U.S state
  • 💉  Stay up to date with daily testing data
  • 📫  Subscribe to get the latest updates right in your inbox

If you do decide to go somewhere, whether it may be a road trip or an extended stay, continue to follow all the CDC guidelines. Wear masks everywhere, don’t dine indoors, stay 6 feet apart, respect your fellow person, and most importantly, stay safe!!!

Thanks for following me for this long, and I would love it if you could check out FleeCOVID on ProductHunt. Give us a upvote if you like it and please reach out if you'd like to give any feedback!
