10 Cheapest Places to Fly Right Now

If you’ve been keeping an eye on the CDC website the past week, you might have a mild case of whiplash. They’ve changed their stance on how COVID transmits, which may or may not be airborne. It’s also hard to figure out if it’s safe to fly. A new Washington Post article investigates the CDC data that 11,000 people were exposed to coronavirus while flying. But given the multiple-day incubation period and how much exposure to risks occurs surrounding travel, it’s hard to know if people got sick from the plane, being in an airport, using public restrooms, etc. If you’re one of those “I might die in a car crash tomorrow” types, here are 10 of the cheapest flights out there right now. 

But also, if you don’t feel well, or think you’ve been exposed to COVID, don’t fly!
