Travel during the COVID-19 Pandemic

Posted about 1 month ago by Charrita Ernewein

As we prepare for the upcoming Holiday Season many people plan to travel to spend much-needed time with friends and family.  Please follow the attached link from the CDC to review details on how to stay safe while traveling (If you choose to travel).


Travel increases your chance of getting and spreading COVID-19. Staying home is the best way to protect yourself and others from COVID-19.

You can get COVID-19 during your travels. You may feel well and not have any symptoms, but you can still spread COVID-19 to others. You and your travel companions (including children) may spread COVID-19 to other people including your family, friends, and community for 14 days after you were exposed to the virus.

Don’t travel if you are sick or if you have been around someone with COVID-19 in the past 14 days. Don’t travel with someone who is sick.
