Planning a Spring Break Getaway? The Better Business Bureau Recommends Taking Along a ‘Pandemic Bag’

Many Missourians have already been vaccinated, inspiring some to consider a spring break or summer getaway. Bao Vang, a spokeswoman for the Better Business Bureau, says if you are planning to escape, be sure to take a “pandemic bag” with you.

“A pandemic bag includes staples like hand sanitizer, face masks, disinfecting wipes, health insurance cards, all good things to have,” Vang says. “Other items, a thermometer, latex gloves, hand soap.”

Vang says you might want to opt for a road trip instead of flying. While road travel carries risks along with flying, she says it is much easier to deal with the risks from within a smaller space you and your family control.
