The Center for Disease Control and Prevention is urging the public not to travel this upcoming holiday season. Dr. Henry Walke of the CDC’s COVID-19 incident management team stated, “the best thing for Americans to do in the upcoming holiday season is to stay at home and not travel” (usatoday.com). While the official CDC guidelines state that travelers should avoid all travel to any destination that is classified as “high risk of infection rates”, people may not always listen to the experts. With as uncertain as times are right now, people want to spend those special holiday moments with the ones they care about. Although, with infection rates rising everyday, it is important to keep saftey in mind while partaking in the traditional holiday festivities, especially travel.
