Well-Being Travel Checklist

Before Clients Leave Home

  • A clean bill of health – no temperature, dry cough or other Covid symptoms
  • If you have a temperature or have had exposure to Covid 19 in the past 14 days, stay home
  • Facemasks are required throughout on airplanes, transfers, in hotels, restaurants etc., – carry enough stock
  • Bring hand sanitizer with 70% alcohol in small containers.

    TSA is allowing one liquid hand sanitizer container up to 12 ounces per passenger in carry-on bags until further notice. Passengers can expect that these containers larger than the standard allowance of 3.4 ounces of liquids permitted through a checkpoint will need to be screened separately, which will add some time to their checkpoint screening experience. Please keep in mind that all other liquids, gels and aerosols brought to a checkpoint continue to be allowed at the limit of 3.4 ounces or 100 milliliters carried in a one quart-size bag.

  • Food for the duration of your trip as some airports will not have vendors open and airlines may vary on food service
  • Bring an additional 30 – 60 day supply of medicine
  • Bring important contact numbers including doctor, pharmacist, travel advisor
  • Refillable bottled water container to fill post security
  • Register with Government Travel Agencies

  • Check in 24 hours prior and look for any updates to the travel policies and check in procedures

During Your Trip

  • Expect flight delays and changes. Be prepared to leave at any time during a 24 hour period as schedule changes are more frequent than in the past.
  • Expect temperature checks and health surveys
  • Comply with social distancing measures and be prepared for some legs of your journey to be more or less stringent than what you’re used to.
  • Your health is your responsibility so don’t feel shy about asking people to respect your boundaries, and be sure to respect theirs.
  • Wash your hands often and for at least 20 seconds
  • Don’t touch your face
  • Use sanitized hand wipes with alcohol to clean surfaces
