We knew we at risk flying across the US, three airports, two flights. We did everything we could of to be safe- wore N95 masks, rubber gloves, plastic shields when transiting through airports. Our recent COVID tests were negative so we are OK. For many reasons, we had to travel but I wouldn’t do it just to go on a trip.

From a NYT article this week;
“The only part of the passenger seats that was wiped down was the seat itself,” one pilot wrote. “Not the area that passengers touch constantly, such as seatbelts, window shades, arm rest, etc. Also, the entire plane was supposedly wiped down in less than 10 minutes.” Last week, the Association of Flight Attendants began a survey to assess sanitation and other safety issues. Of the many hundreds who have responded so far, only 44 percent of flight attendants said their planes were thoroughly cleaned and disinfected between flights during the day.
