Like so much of our lives, travel has been severely
impacted by COVID-19. For many months, it was simply
impossible to travel as global communities instituted
lockdowns and closed borders to keep their citizens safe.
As we learn to live with the pandemic, and as travel
slowly resumes in some places, it can be helpful to have
a travel toolkit for the COVID-19 era. Ensuring that we
keep ourselves, our families and our communities
healthy is the top priority, and a proper travel toolkit
helps to achieve that goal. Respecting science and the
advice of medical professionals should be at the
forefront of our minds as we make plans to resume
Many of the tools at our disposal as we begin
to travel again are common sense actions
that we should be taking during a pandemic:
wearing a mask, washing our hands often
(either with soap and water or hand sanitizer),
practicing social distancing, and staying six
feet away from others, and sanitizing areas
that are often touched. These are proven
ways of staying safer in the COVID-19 era, and
it is possible to implement them during travel
by plane, train, or bus. We can take
precautions to keep everyone safe.
If traveling by plane, we need to take masks,
hand sanitizer, and sanitizing wipes with us,
and we need to diligently use all those things.
We should try to fly on airlines that keep the
middle seats empty for distancing. Aiming
the air nozzle vent at our faces during the
flight may help keep viruses away from our
faces. Avoiding using the bathroom on the
airplane, as it is not necessarily sanitized
between uses, is another key way of
Train and bus travel must also be approached
with care. Sanitize all surfaces that you might
encounter: seats, handrails, overhead bins,
windows, etc. Use your bag as a buffer in the
seat next to you, so that a stranger does not
occupy it. Wash your hands often and
thoroughly, especially after touching a
common surface. Try to use touchless
payment options when possible to purchase
tickets or snacks. Wear your mask
continuously during your journey. By being
prepared and attentive to our actions, it is
possible to travel safely during a pandemic.
