Considerations if you MUST travel

Some types of travel (bus, plane, train) may require sitting next to others for a period of time. Travel may also expose you to new parts of the country with differing levels of community transmission. And, if you’re infected, your travel may put others at risk – along the way, at your destination, and when you return home. If you plan to travel soon, please consider safe travel measures recommended by the CDC.
