COVID-19 Travel Tips

Advice for Travelling Over the Holiday Season

Whether you’re going on a road trip or you have a flight to catch, many of us are looking forward to finally seeing our families for the first time in a long time due to the pandemic. With increased travel over the holidays amid flu and COVID-19 season, here are some tips to give you some peace of mind while you travel.

Wearing a Mask

If you are not vaccinated, many airlines are supporting CDC recommendations and mandating passengers to wear a mask at all times when aboard an aircraft. Be sure your mask covers your nose and mouth and fits snugly.

If you are vaccinated, it’s still a good idea to continue wearing your mask to keep you and your loved ones safe. In this case, it’s recommended to wear a mask in busy public settings such as airports and aboard your flight.

Check Your Airline’s Restrictions

Regardless of your vaccination status, you should check your airline’s COVID-19 policy in both your arrival airport and your destination to ensure you’re following all rules — regarding masks, COVID-19 testing, and more.

Practice Good Social Hygiene

Whether you’re flying, driving, or taking another form of public transportation, remember to keep your personal hygiene routine up. You should social distance when possible, wash your hands often, and avoid common touchpoints along your journey.

Get Tested After Travel

It’s best to get tested three to five days after you return home. Stop by Pinnacle HealthCare to receive your COVID-19 test results and peace of mind. If you’re feeling sick, come in as soon as possible for testing and treatment.
