Traveling is the transport of humans between different distant geographic locations. Travel can be by car, plane, train, bike, foot, boat, bus or other mode, with or without personal luggage, and is one-way or round trip journey. There are different modes of transport that are available for traveling, such as train, plane, rail, sea and land transportation. There are also other ways of travel such as caravanning, hiking, traveling by land and air, bicycling, paragliding, skating and rollerblading.
Traveling has a lot of benefits for those who enjoy it. Those who travel for fun may get tested for different diseases, especially those traveling outside their country of origin or where they are not very familiar with the culture and the people. There are some medical problems when traveling from abroad to the country where they are staying. If they do not get tested before traveling, they may get tested when they reach the destination and not know what to do or where to go, which may result in a negative result. When there is a negative result, travelers may be advised not to travel to that destination any more as a precaution.
There was a period of time when traveling from one state to another was not allowed, except for essential travel. It is now prohibited to travel between nonessential and necessary states, except for those in quarantine during a disease outbreak. The only state now that travelers are not discouraged from traveling to is Arizona, where there are no quarantine regulations. However, as of Dec. 15, there were no statewide quarantine requirements.
Some have expressed concerns about traveling on an airplane during the flu season. Some airlines have started allowing travelers to bring their own bottles of hand sanitizer. As of Dec. 15, all airlines must allow passengers to carry a hand sanitizer if they so desire to do so. Anyone who has had their nose or mouth swabbed with anoxia and gone through the necessary security screenings should have no problem traveling. People who have already been subjected to the screening process are also allowed to take advantage of the sanitizing liquids offered.
There are other concerns about traveling during the flu season. Many children will not go to school until it is less than two weeks away due to the fact that it can be very messy and many children do not like being held in a stuffy classroom. Traveling by public transportation may increase the amount of time someone has to use the restroom, which could cause them to feel uncomfortable and not want to go. Traveling by bus or metro can also increase the amount of time someone has to use the restroom during peak traveling times.
As of Dec. 15, travelers can expect to be safer when traveling to any destination in the United States. However, travelers are urged to consider the risks and weigh the positives of the flu vaccination prior to leaving on vacation. If a traveler does choose to get vaccinated, they should consider doing so while traveling to any destination in the United States. They should also be sure that their child is up to date on their regular vaccinations at home before leaving on their trip to their intended destination.
