Iowa Department of Public Health release virus-related tips for traveling during Thanksgiving

To travel for the holidays or to stay home – a question that everyone is being forced to answer this week and again in December. For those that are traveling for Thanksgiving, the Iowa Department of Public Health has already created a COVID-19 travel guide for you.

Things to consider:

  • Traveling in your own vehicle will reduce exposure to COVID-19; if you need to travel commercially or publicly, avoid traveling during busy times
  • Bring a small personal disinfecting kit which should include hand sanitizer, disinfecting wipes, and extra masks
  • Consider using single-use utensils when eating with guests over
  • Consider designating a room in the house for guests or family members who have symptoms of the virus
  • Avoid high-risk holiday shopping like large in-person sales promotions

The release ended by adding some other miscellaneous considerations such as considering holding special remote gatherings or small gatherings at home.
