Holiday Travel in a Pandemic

10/22/2020 3:17 PM | Anonymous

Between Thanksgiving and Christmas, millions of Americans travel by plane, train, and automobile to see family. 

The Transportation Security Administration states that the number of people flying is climbing but is still below half of what it was in 2019.  Many states are lifting quarantine restrictions but the Covid-19  infection, hospitalization and death numbers continue to increase in many parts of the country.  And, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is encouraging individuals to stay home and protect themselves and others, and warns that travel increases the chance of getting and spreading the disease.  So it is not surprising that many people have not made up their minds about holiday travel in 2020.

The Washington Post talked to experts and created an interactive guide  to help you plan your holiday travel.
