Summer is fast approaching and with more and more people getting vaccinated, you might be considering purchasing a ticket and boarding a plane to see loved ones. Recent guidelines issued from the Center for Disease Control and Prevention note that vaccinated people are at a low risk when it comes to travel. 

Director of the National Institute of Health Dr. Fauci notes that the filtration systems on airplanes, efficiently and effectively remove particles that could transmit the virus. The CDC also recommends that everyone, including fully vaccinated people, continue to take precautions like wearing a mask, practice social distancing, and frequently wash your hands. 

Before you head to the airport, you should consider how to minimize wait time within the airport to lower your risk. Avoiding long lines by using an app to check-in, packing light to avoid checking a bag, or even getting TSA pre-check to spend the least amount of time going through security. Also, please note that flight attendants are no longer allowed to touch your bags when you are on your flight, so it's important to have bags and luggage that you can lift on your own. 

Here are some things you might need to stay safe in the friendly skies.
