Each Friday, we feature a reader-inspired tip as our Travel Tip of the Day. This week’s tip comes from reader Toni P., who weighed in on this recent post on what to wear to stay safe while flying with a few suggestions:
“As a retired dentist, I am well versed in infection control and would like to make further suggestions regarding what to wear while flying. I, too, would wear a mask and face shield but would instead of the jumpsuit, just wear a long sleeve cuffed scrub jacket or long sleeve shirt over my regular clothes. I would also wear a scrub cap or scarf/bandana over my hair. The purpose of hair and clothes covering is to keep clothes underneath them clean until you arrive at your destination. When at destination, carefully remove hair cover and scrub jacket, fold inside out, take directly to laundry or place in dirty clothes bag, and immediately take a shower. This is what essential workers do every day and should minimize risks of contamination when flying.”
In general, the best advice is to avoid flying at all until things change for the better, but if you have to fly, wearing a layer that you can throw right into the laundry once you’re deplaned is definitely a smart idea. Thanks for the tip, Toni!
