The official word, according to the Centers for Disease Control, is that travel of any kind can be risky business these days – make sure you’re not headed for a hot spot where COVID-19 cases and hospitalizations are on a rapid upswing.
If you do travel, plan to bring an ample supply of hand sanitizer and disinfectant wipes along with you. If you take medications, remember to bring along enough to last for the entire trip, and perhaps more to cover an unforeseen delay.
Highway rest areas are an obvious hazard, so take extra precautions should you need to stop while en route.
