Americans Ignoring CDC Advise Not To Travel This ThanksgivingA recent article by David Schaper released on NPR.ORG reported that millions of Americans, despite the CDC's advice not to travel this Thanksgiving, are doing so anyway . According to the Transportation Security Administration, more than 1.04 million people went through airport security this past Sunday, the most since March. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is advising the public to stay home and not to travel for the holidays to help prevent the spread of COVID.

While the numbers for this weekend are still less than the travelers who flew last year the weekend before thanksgiving, these numbers suggest that airports are more crowded, and planes are fuller than they've ever been since the pandemic began. The number of new Coronavirus cases in the US has surpassed all prior limits, averaging more than 170,000 a day, according to the Johns Hopkins University's Coronavirus Resource Center . More than 12 million people have been confirmed to be infected and more than 257,000 have died due to complications from the virus. Nevertheless, people seem to be tired of pandemic-related restrictions on travel this holiday season.

Airports and airlines are taking extra steps to help prevent the spread of Covid-19, including deep cleaning and disinfecting high-touch surfaces in airports and airplane cabins. This type of disinfecting is best done with electrostatic sprayers like the ones Germinator utilizes to ensure all nooks and crannies have been hit.

Not all potential travelers are convinced though, with airlines reporting a recent increase in booking cancellations for Thanksgiving travel due to the nationwide surge in new COVID-19 cases.
