Don’t forget to mask up
Reality check: the virus is still out there and health safety remains a priority even in travel. Especially if you’re going to be in a vehicle with strangers for hours on end, it’s still better to mask up. Don’t forget to bring extras too, and keep them inside the EVA Mask Case.
