Traveling during the COVID-19 pandemic can be especially tricky with new travel guidelines that can make it difficult to freely travel. Many state travel restrictions and guidelines are to ensure that patients don’t spread the virus and are as safe as they can be. For patients that need to travel, they should consider visiting an urgent care service for many of the immediate needs that travelers require during the pandemic.
