To give you an idea of how the spikes are significant, New York (which had 394,430 cases), New Jersey (169,892) and Massachusetts (107,611) were some of the hardest hit states, and now states with record cases are getting close to match their numbers. Because Covid-19 cases are spiking in many states, it’s best to continue to shelter in place.
Since the coronavirus hit the US hard this past February, more than 2.3 million cases have been reported, as well as 121,926 known recorded deaths.
Clearly, the coronavirus pandemic is reaching new heights and taking a stronger toll as businesses reopen. It shows that you should reconsider any leisure travel plans during this time, as The New York Times points out, we have no idea where the coronavirus will end up next.
If you have any trips coming up, take a moment to decide if it’s worth the risk, and check your airline’s Covid policy to see if you can cancel or reschedule for a later time. It’s best not to travel now while 29 states are spiking with Covid-19 cases.
