Is it safe to fly yet? Experts weigh in

Jun 02, 2020 14:50 IST

Exposure scientist Paloma Beamer from the University of Arizona and her colleague Dr. Kacey Ernst share that it is essential to consider a number of factors before you decide to fly again. Start by thinking about the reason for your trip, if it is just a vacation, hold on! Airplanes are not built for social distancing and you might want to consider who is in your 6-feet distance, they said. If you're someone older or with a pre-existing health condition, or going to visit someone belonging to these categories, think extra. They further shared that if there is an alternative to air travel, even if it means taking a day-long road journey, go for it. They suggest you try booking shorter, multiple flights and opt for the window seat.
