Travelling with an illness
It may be OK to travel with a minor illness, such as a cold if your symptoms aren’t worrisome. However, be aware that flying can exacerbate your condition and your inflight neighbours may not appreciate your sneezes. It is best not to fly if you have a fever and one of the following:
- Obvious signs of illness, such as a severe headache, weakness, or skin and eyes turning yellow
- Skin rash
- Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing
- Persistent, severe cough
- Confusion, especially if it has just started
- Bruising or bleeding (without previous injury)
- Diarrhoea that does not go away
- Vomiting that does not go away (other than motion sickness)
Do not fly if you have flu, have stomach injuries or have had recent stomach surgery. Always check with your Doctor prior to travel if you have any conditions or symptoms you are worried about.
When you are under the weather, always consider whether you would be happy to sit next to someone in your condition.
