To prevent the spread of COVID-19 the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends the following:
- Stay home and avoid travel when you are sick
- Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20seconds, especially after going to the bathroom; before eating; and after blowing your nose, cough, or sneezing. If soap and water are not readily available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol.
- Avoid close contact with people who are sick
- Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth.
- Cover your cough or sneeze.
- Always wear socks when traveling, so if you need to remove your footwear for TSA you are not barefoot.
- Place items from your pockets inside your carry-on bag before arriving at the TSA screening checkpoint to reduce contact with surfaces and screening bins.
