Holiday Travel and Covid

AJ’s observations of travel in the current Covid era

Washington Post: You asked: I got covid on vacation. Where should I report my case?


  • Bring Covid rapid tests with you

  • Before booking your trip, check the area you are going and what/where testing locations are

  • Consult health insurance as to what forms, numbers, etc for reimbursement

  • N95 vs KN95 and where you buy them


  • Travel insurance / Credit Card purchase travel insurance

  • Carry on at a premium ; Apple AirTag

    • Checking your carry on at the gate

      • Planes at an all time heavy- Checked baggage at a premium

  • Health Tracker- Garmin Instinct in AJ’s case- worked well as a way to put his biometric baseline as a way to track and help his way back to healthy while dealing with COVID 19.

  • Actual wrist shot from AJ in tracking his infection/recovery.

  • This YouTuber around the same time did a great video run down of a similar approach.

Chris’ tips for travel in COVID era

  • Confirmation/Boarding Pass printout - Just in case your flight info is only on your airline app and your phone battery dies. Don’t have a printer? Try OfficeMax self-service printing.

  • Pick a dedicated location at home where all essential travel documents are stored to prevent misplacing and last-minute stress in finding your stuff.

  • Invest in a unique luggage tag to stand out in the baggage claim carousel.
