Ready to travel, as places start to reopen? Doctor shares insight into doing it the right way



Slowly but surely, travel is starting to reopen again amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

But how does one do it safely?

Dr. Donald A. Plumley, a chief quality officer at Orlando Health, Arnold Palmer Hospital for Children, had some really great insight.

At the local beaches, for example, Plumley said, the fresh air is great for our well-being. Just make sure you’re still staying 6 to 10 feet away from other groups.

At hotels, look for the high-touch areas in the room: sink handles, door handles, countertops and the remote control. You might even want to travel with some disinfectant wipes.
