* air travel requires spending time in security lines and airport terminals, which can bring you in close contact with other people and frequently touched surfaces. most viruses and other germs do not spread easily on flights because of how air circulates and is filtered on airplanes. however, social distancing is difficult on crowded flights, and sitting within 6 feet of others, sometimes for hours, may increase your risk of getting covid-19. factors that may increase risk of air travel include flight duration and whether others onboard are wearing masks.

** based on individual circumstances and risk assessments (staying at a family member’s or friend’s home may be less risky than staying at a hotel or multi-unit guest lodging with people from your household)
