Traveling This Thanksgiving? We've Got Tips For You To Ensure You Travel Safely
Thanksgiving is just a few days away and although the CDC recommends staying home this season, if you must travel, we have a few tips to ensure you travel as safe as possible.
AAA predicts that about 50 million Americans will travel during the Thanksgiving holiday, with 95% of travelers embarking on road trips.
When traveling by plane:
In the past, it was recommended to arrive at the airport three hours in advance. However, it’s best to spend less time in crowded public places and since less people are traveling than in the past, arriving an hour and half before your flight is sufficient.
When traveling by air, it’s best to keep your mask on at all times. Eat and drink before arriving at the airport and especially before boarding your flight so you won’t have to remove your mask.
When traveling by car:
Before leaving home, make sure your vehicle is stocked with lots of santizer. When stopping at the gas station or restaurants along the way, make sure to thoroughly wash your hands and sanitize, especially after pumping gas.
Prior to your trip, it’s important to map out which places you’ll stop along the way so you don’t come into contact with a lot of strangers. You should also pack snacks and sandwiches to avoid having to constantly stop for food.
If you can, avoid traveling this holiday season, but if not, it’s important to be as safe as possible!
