Stay-at-home orders have lifted in many parts of the country and, with that, plenty of people are trying to figure out what is (and isn’t) OK to do now that COVID-19 is practically everywhere. A big question as people itch to travel this summer: Is it safe to fly yet? After all, airplanes don’t exactly have the best reputation for keeping people healthy, even in non-pandemic circumstances.

“Crowded airplanes have always been a source of concern for the spread of infections,” says Michael Gochfeld, M.D., Ph.D., professor emeritus at the Rutgers Environmental and Occupational Health Sciences Institute. “Usually this was taken for granted and did not cause anxiety, but with COVID-19, it would be hard not to be anxious. The likelihood of transmission of the COVID-19 virus seems to be greater than influenza and common cold viruses.”
