The coronavirus outbreak has changed everything about life including travel. The travel industry has been badly hurt following the various lockdown policies and restrictions placed on travels and movements.
However, if you must travel here is a list of travel tips compiled by the United States Transportation Security Administration to help these travelers amid the coronavirus pandemic.
- The first tip recommends that travelers bring hand sanitizer, but that they also be aware of the security regulations. Travelers are allowed to bring up to 12 ounces per passenger in carry-on bags. If the containers holding the sanitizer are larger than 3.4 ounces, however, they will need to be screened separately, which can add time to the screening process.
- The next tip remind travelers that they are allowed to bring individually wrapped alcohol wipes or anti-bacterial wipes with them, and that face masks are permitted to be worn at the security checkpoints (although travelers may be asked to adjust the mask to confirm their identity).
- Travelers are also recommended to take the items from their pockets and place them in their carry-on bag. This will allow them to avoid placing items directly in the bins.
- Lastly, the TSA reminds travelers to wash their hands before and after going through the security process.
