Summer airline safety |

CHARLOTT, NC — Summer is coming and many of us are making vacation plans that might include air travel. Here, to give us some tips on how to stay safe and healthy during our summer travel, the City Call Home Doctors, Dr. Rob and Dr. Carla Robinson.

Tip 1: Plan ahead. Check the rules/requirements for your local airport and destination airport. You also need to know local testing and vaccination requirements (especially if you are traveling outside the country). You may also be required to show proof of vaccination depending on your travel destination.

Tip 2: Know your status. While not completely reliable in preventing the spread of COVOID, consider getting tested or testing at home 24 to 48 hours before travel. Knowing your status before you travel not only gives you a bit of peace of mind, but it also helps you better keep track of your potential contacts if you get sick or become positive later on. You may also be required to have a negative test result depending on your travel destination.

Tip 3: Wear a mask. Although the requirement to wear a mask for travel has been lifted, we advise you to wear a mask at the airport and on the plane. COVID rates are still high in parts of the country and around the world. When you travel, you don’t know who you come into contact with and what their impact is. To minimize the risk of contracting COVID, we recommend that you continue to wear masks.

Tip 4: stock. Make sure you have an adequate supply of any prescription drugs or other medical supplies you will need while traveling. Unforeseen circumstances and travel delays arise, and instead of being caught off guard, it’s best to be prepared with all the necessary day-to-day things.
