The Q&A below will help address some common questions and concerns:
A: As of March 2nd, public health officials are not recommending that travelers wear face masks. It is important, however, that travelers maintain good personal hygiene throughout their travel. Wash hands regularly with soap and water (including the back of hands, under fingernails, etc.), keep hands away from your face, and use alcohol-based hand sanitizer as needed. Importantly, travelers should avoid coughing or sneezing into their hands, using their elbows instead. And, it is always a good idea to travel with disinfectant wipes to clean surfaces such as armrests and seat-back trays aboard commercial aircraft.
