Andrew Noymer, an epidemiologist and associate professor of public health at University of California Irvine …  said that travelers should consider quarantining for two weeks before trips if you’re planning to see others outside your immediate household. … “Yes, flying can be done safely, but there’s always going to be someone who cuts a corner here or there and could get sick. …There’s already plenty of spreading of COVID-19, even with us all staying in the same place.
