Mecklenburg County Public Health officials advise residents do not travel during spring break due to the potential of catching and spreading COVID-19.
On Friday, MCPH issued an advisory against travel over the spring break holiday. The reason behind the advisory, officials say involves increased exposure for contracting COVID-19. The county provided a list that outlines some of the risk:
- Increased contact with larger number of persons who may be infected in venues such as airports, train stations, bus terminals, conferences, events etc.
- Inability to social distance yourself from others, e.g. on an airplane or being in close quarters with others on a cruise.
- Spreading the disease to others, even if you are asymptomatic.
- Travel could be suspended or interrupted, quarantines put into effect and borders closed at any time leaving you stranded or required to stay out of the U.S. and/or away from home for extended periods of time.
This health advisory is a recommendation, not a mandate. Instead, it is an advisement to the community to stay vigilant and follow coronavirus health and safety guidelines.
