After spending nearly three months on lockdown with these kids and with summer swiftly approaching, you may be wondering whether or not it will be safe to venture out for a brief getaway at some point before the fall. Numbers are dropping significantly, but COVID-19 is still a very real threat. So what does this mean for travel? The experts are saying it’s okay to travel but it’s all about using common sense and taking proper precautions.

“It’s OK to have fun, (but) do it safely,” Saad Omer, director of Yale Institute for Global Health in New Haven, Connecticut, told Today. “You just need to strike a balance.”
