What is Coronavirus?

"Coronaviruses are a large family of viruses which may cause illness in animals or humans. In humans, several coronaviruses are known to cause respiratory infections ranging from the common cold to more severe diseases such as Middle East Respiratory Syndrome (MERS) and Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS). The most recently discovered coronavirus causes coronavirus disease COVID-19." - World Health Organization

Traveling in the U.S. soon? Get tested before your trip, CDC says.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has updated its coronavirus guidance for domestic travel, urging travelers to take a test close to departure regardless of vaccination status.

The agency said on its website that anyone traveling within the United States should think about “getting tested as close to the time of departure as possible,” no more than three days ahead of a trip. The agency previously only recommended testing before domestic travel for those not up to date on their coronavirus vaccinations.

Do I still need to wear a mask on a plane? 5 questions, answered.

In most transportation scenarios, no. But remember that the mask mandate doesn’t just apply to planes and airports. It also applied to trains, ferries, buses, ride-shares, taxis, trolleys and other transportation hubs.

Some mask mandates were staying in place. Public transit riders in New York City will still need to wear a face covering on subways, buses and trains, local media reported. Philadelphia International Airport is requiring masks under a city mandate.
