When using transportation, consider ways to protect yourself and slow the spread of COVID-19. Consider practicing hand hygiene and respiratory etiquette when traveling. During traveling, maintain social distancing from people who are not in your household. Limit touching frequently touched surfaces. Wear a face mask, especially when distancing is difficult. Before you leave and after you reach your destination, wash your hands with soap and water or an alcohol-based hand sanitizer (with minimum 60% alcohol). People with health-related issues or who have an increased risk of severe illness should avoid traveling.
