Why You Shouldn’t Travel This Holiday Season


Aisha Cooper, Staff Writer

Traveling has always been an important part of life. We progressed from traveling on foot to traveling on planes. You can’t deny how much impact traveling has, especially today. 

Billions of people travel to so many different places for so many different reasons. However, we are currently in a pandemic. This should be taken seriously by everyone, but unfortunately and tragically isn’t. 

This virus spreads from person to person to person, so it is even more crucial that measures are taken to protect each and every person. Cases are also still rising, so this only furthers the need for safety. 

In other words, it is better to wait before it is truly safe to travel anywhere during this holiday season. 

More than 40 million people travel every year during Thanksgiving alone. It is very important to recognize how much travel impacts everyone and also realize how traveling during this time isn’t the best option. 

All in all, remember to stay safe and stay home during this holiday season and during this pandemic!
