We here at the Southern California Food Allergy Institute understand that many of our families have to travel to Long Beach from out of state, or even internationally, for their child's appointments. What was once just the regular stresses of travel has now been compounded in this time of COVID. Because of this, we have created this short video of travel tips and precautions to help make getting to your visit a bit less stressful.
As policies and procedures continue to quickly change, we suggest always reviewing your region's travel guidelines from the state and local health departments, as well as guidelines from the California Department of Public Health
and the Centers for Disease Control
(CDC). If you are flying, also check your airline's website for their most up-to-date policies and procedures.
As has been recommended by the CDC and mandated by a number of states, anyone over the age of two should be wearing a mask and social distancing by a distance of 6', whenever possible.
Limit contact with frequently touched surfaces, such as handrails, elevator buttons, and kiosks. If you must touch these surfaces, use hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol or wash your hands with soap for at least 20 seconds afterward. Always avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth. When possible, avoid contact with anyone who is sick and always cover your coughs and sneezes. Stay home when you are sick.
