UC expert sees a fall COVID-19 rebound that is manageable

The general consensus among medical experts is for a rebound of COVID-19 cases in the fall of 2020. Fodor's Travel interviewed Carl Fichtenbaum, MD, of the UC Division of Infectious Diseases for an article on what travel might look like this fall.

Even though he believes we’ll still be battling the novel coronavirus in the fall, Dr. Fichtenbaum is hopeful that numbers will be at the level we’re seeing right now and won’t be any higher.

Traveling brings with it the risk of both the traveler and the people they encounter being exposed to the virus. For this reason, Dr. Fichtenbaum cautions anyone thinking about holiday travel (or fall travel in general) to be cognizant of exposures to other people and places in the time leading up to travel. He also suggests limiting exposure by opting to travel by car, if possible.
