Summer is here. Though COVID-19 cases are surging, many are still thinking of getting out for some sun, or taking a socially distant vacation. Even if the destination is safe, the journey provides a host of potential exposures. Peter Chin-Hong, MD, Professor in the Division of Infectious Diseases at the UCSF School of Medicine, weighs in on the risk of coronavirus exposure for every mode of travel.

Travel safety during the COVID-19 pandemic

COVID-19 is a global issue. The disease is in every country and nearly every city. That's why health experts do not recommend any nonessential travel at this time. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) says crowded travel settings, like airports, may increase chances of getting COVID-19 if there are other travelers with COVID-19 infection.

Dr. Abinash Virk, a Mayo Clinic infectious diseases physician, echoes that sentiment and says people should postpone travel if possible. However, if that's not an option, she says it's critical to be cautious about your potential exposures.

In this Q&A, Dr. Virk answers travel questions related to COVID-19 travel-related questions and offers some advice on how travelers can better protect themselves and others around them.

The surreal experience of flying during the pandemic

Demand for air travel has all but evaporated with the arrival of coronavirus. But airlines are still flying. And now, passengers have to wear masks. Here’s what it’s like to take a flight from Washington, D.C. into Atlanta, the world’s busiest airport. Mandatory stay-at-home orders have pushed demand for flying to almost zero, wrecking airline finances. Carriers are parking hundreds of planes anywhere they can, including on a runway at Atlanta. Inside the concourses there, crowds are nowhere near what they were in mid-March, as coronavirus started to shut life down. Most restaurants and shops are closed. On board flights, passengers will find blocked seats, to encourage social distancing. And inflight service consisting of water and snacks stuffed into a plastic baggie, to limit the interaction flight attendants have with fliers.

How air travel has changed during the COVID-19 pandemic

For the last week, the Transportation Security Administration has recorded increased travel at airports across the country.

But as the pandemic continues, there are big changes to how we fly.

Both Bush Intercontinental and Hobby Airport are requesting passengers to wear masks in the airport and all major airlines are requiring the practice.

How To Travel and NOT Get Coronavirus - 7 Tips for Flying and Traveling during COVID 19 Pandemic ✈????

How To Travel and NOT Get Coronavirus - 7 Tips for Flying and Traveling during COVID 19 Pandemic ✈????

Catching Coronavirus / COVID-19 in an airplane is possible by inhaling the virus. And the regular face covering that you wear, such as a regular medical mask, won’t prevent you from inhaling the virus if it’s in the air close to you.

Airborne Transmission
-

Coronavirus | COVID-19 YouTube Video Playlist:


Here are my recommended items:

Regular Medical/Surgical Mask


Elastomeric Respirator Mask to Prevent Inhaling The Virus


Glasses/Goggles to Protect Your Eyes


Air Purifier for Home/Office


Pulse Oximeter to measure your Oxygen at Home


Most airlines are requiring passengers to wear masks. Some airlines are also taking other measures to minimize person to person interaction, such as not serving alcoholic beverages or are skipping snacks altogether. Most commercial flights these days have very clean cabin air. Airplanes accomplish this by the way they have their air intake system setup. Essentially, they have compressed air passing through the jet engines, with its temperature being super hot. That hot air is then cooled, and put under pressure (450) PSI. So between the initial hot temperatures and the high pressure, that makes the air in the cabin very sterile, as bacteria and viruses become destroyed in that process.

And the cabin air is exchanged every 3-4 minutes, which is actually better than offices and homes, which is typically every 5-12 minutes. Also, with newer generations of airplanes, they have high-efficiency particulate air filters, meaning HEPA filters, that filter the recirculated air. They can fish out particles as small as 0.3 microns, which is what an N95 respirator mask can do, as well as an elastomeric mask. Now some might say, well the virus is only about 0.1 microns in diameter or 100 nm…. And this is true. But most of the virus in the air is going to exist within respiratory droplets. So the bottom line is, if the virus is in the air, most of it, about 95% of it, will be filtered out with these HEPA filters on the plane, and the same goes for respirator masks.

When someone is expelling respiratory droplets, the ones that more than 5-10 microns in size, those are the ones that are going to act like ballistics, and fall within 6-12 feet of them, IF… they are NOT wearing a mask. The respiratory droplets that are expelled are less than 5 microns, these are the ones that will stay suspended in the air. If someone is wearing a mask, it will drastically reduce the distance the size of that moist cloud, and the distance that moist cloud can travel, but it won’t be totally prevented.

So if no one sitting close to you, or if someone is sitting close to you but does not have the virus, no worries. But, of course, people are going to be close to you, and it's impossible to know who has the virus. And if that virus is in the air close to you, you’re going to breathe it in, unless….you do tip #1, which is, you wear an N95 respirator mask, or an elastomeric respirator. Both of these filter out at least 95% of airborne particles as small as 0.3 microns. Right now the CDC recommends the public to not purchase and wear these N95 respirator masks, for one because they need to be reserved for health care workers. I don’t understand how they can be in limited supply this deep into a pandemic, but I digress. But what you can do is get yourself an elastomeric respirator. This is a reusable device with exchangeable cartridge filters. Like an N95 respirator, it also filters out at least 95% of airborne particles as small as 0.3 microns. It fits tight against the user's face but is more comfortable than an N95.

What It's REALLY Like Flying During the COVID-19 Pandemic

Coronavirus (COVID-19) has changed everything, and that includes how we fly. Let us show you exactly what it's like flying during the pandemic.

From buying a ticket to boarding the plane to the drink-and-snack service onboard and even who's sitting next to you, airlines have made drastic changes - and just what you'll find onboard will depend on which airline you fly. Airports are different, too, as shops and restaurants (and even airport lounges) have limited hours or closed down altogether. It all adds up to an almost unrecognizable travel experience.

We recently took a trip from Minneapolis-St. Paul (MSP) to Washington, D.C. (DCA) and back to document the flying experience today. And we flew two different airlines, American and Delta, to show just how much it differs based on which airline you choose.
