• Don’t give out personal information until you are able to verify it isn’t a scam
• If they’re asking for payment with gift cards of any kind, it’s likely a scam!

The start of the traditional holiday season is about two weeks away, which is the same incubation period as the virus.

✔️ By limiting interaction with others for 14 days before departure, you can significantly reduce chances of bringing the virus home.
✔️ When you do come in contact with others, continue to wear a mask or face covering and maintain a distance of 6 feet apart, even when outside.
✔️ For Thanksgiving Day, consider our tips for celebrating the holiday safely: https://bit.ly/326MrFW
✔️ If you do get tested for COVID-19, try to get checked as close to your date of departure as possible. The Virginia Department of Health also recommends getting a flu vaccine at least two weeks before returning home.
