By Diana Iscenko

The world is still in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic. Even though cases in the United States are still rising in some areas, many states are reopening in phases. The threat of getting sick is still real, so many businesses are open with new social distancing measures in place to prevent the spread of the virus. This combined with the summer weather has caused many people to want to travel again.

So, is it safe to travel on an airplane right now? The CDC warns against making unnecessary trips anywhere, including on airplanes. Air travel includes the time spent in security lines and airport terminals, both of which can bring you in close contact with people and frequently touched surfaces. Social distancing can be impossible on crowded flights, so you may be stuck within six feet of someone for hours at a time.

That said, if you need to get into a plane for a necessary trip—or if you’re otherwise willing to take the risk—there are ways to travel as safely as possible.

Whether you’re taking a mandatory trip or hitting a vacation destination, here are three travel tips for flying during the pandemic:
