Did you know that travelling can increase your chances of getting and spreading COVID-19? Before you pack up for your summer vacation trip, learn if COVID-19 is spreading through your local area or in in any of the places you are planning to visit. Be aware of the travel advisories within the United States, and Abroad.
Take a look at the Road Travel Toolkit or Air Travel Toolkit before leaving for your vacation. Traveling to visit family may be especially dangerous if you or your loved ones are more likely to get very ill from COVID-19. People at higher risk for sever illness should take extra precautions. A staycation can be just as much fun as going on a road trip this summer.
CDC has created recommendations to help adults have conversations with children about COVID-19 and ways they can avoid getting and spreading the disease.
Children may worry about themselves, their family, and friends getting ill with COVID-19. Parents, family members, school staff, and other trusted adults can play an important role in helping children make sense of what they hear in a way that is honest, accurate, and minimizes anxiety or fear.
