Take a personal vehicle and avoid public transportation!
Wherever possible, use a personal mode of transport to minimize exposure to others. If you do not have your own car, ask a family member, roommate, or friend if you can borrow theirs, or ask them to drive you.
- Ensure everyone in the car wears a mask.
- Limit the number of people in the car to as few as possible.
- Maintain distance between people as much as possible. Ask passengers to sit in the back to create physical distance.
- Keep tissues and hand sanitizer in your car.
- Cough and sneeze into your sleeve.
- Increase airflow by putting the windows down.
- Do not recirculate air.
- Clean and disinfect all surfaces before and after the trip, especially if you borrowed the car or are giving someone a lift. Play close attention to surfaces that are touched often by passengers, such as door handles, arm rests, steering wheels, gear shifters, commonly-used buttons, and seatbelts.
- Avoid touching your eyes, nose, or mouth with unwashed hands.
