Traveling with kids is a challenge but traveling safely with kids during the COVID-19 pandemic is nerve-racking to say the least. Understandably, families are experiencing COVID fatigue and long for the days of going to visit family for the holidays or flying to some exotic destination. The good news is…it can be done! And your family can return home refreshed and COVID free.

My guest, pediatric hospitalist, travel blogger and O Magazine brand ambassador, Dr. Nadeen White-Underwood gives us the strategies for safe travels during the pandemic. She says it requires a checklist approach and takes us through each category to check off to ensure safety.

This episode covers:

-Current status of COVID-19 in kids

-Creating your travel safety checklist

-Considerations for family events and get-togethers

-Choosing lower risk activities-eating, sleeping, transportation, fun

-Vacation pods

-Navigating bathrooms and indoor spaces

*This episode was taped in mid September prior to flu season and the COVID-19 second wave. The status of COVID-19 changes so please follow current recommendations on traveling based on increasing cases and global lockdowns. For instance, in areas of high cases travel maybe limited to essential only.

Thanks, Dr. White-Underwood!
