With new COVID-19 safety measures in place, travel looks a little different at the moment. Here’s what you should know before you head off to Yunlin County:
- Before locking in your flight, find out if any travel restrictions or bans apply — in both your destination and origin. Keep informed with the latest updates by reviewing government and travel websites.
- Requirements state you must wear a face mask throughout your travel experience, including at screening checkpoints. You should be prepared to lower your mask to verify your identity when asked by a TSA employee.
- To reduce the risk of cross-contamination, position your boarding pass on the scanner yourself and then hold it up for inspection. Do not hand your boarding pass directly to a TSA employee.
- TSA now permits passengers to take one container of hand sanitizer, up to 12 oz (350 ml) in size, in carry-on bags. This will need to be removed from your bag for scanning.
- Put any personal items (e.g, wallet, keys and phone) in your carry-on instead of a bin to minimize handling during the screening process.
- Separate any food you’re carrying for X-ray screening. Food items often trigger the alarm. Putting them in a clear plastic bag and into a bin reduces the need for a TSA employee to handle and inspect your belongings.
