Has anyone started traveling yet? Client’s city has not had an outbreak and I’m slated to travel soon. I’m fairly nervous and refuse to fly so looking at driving 5-6 hours. I also have a young kid and my husband works lengthy hours so I’m pretty apprehensive but don’t feel like I’m at liberty to decline travel.

What "city" is this that has somehow not had a covid outbreak? Auckland, New Zealand? If you're in the USA, assume that every place has had am outbreak. You can then ask yojr company's management if they have a covid travel policy in place, and see if it includes information on how to opt out of travel. Every big firm should have a policy like that.

There are towns and counties that have had less than 10 reported cases since March. We have a management plan as a firm and by practice, but it seems this is a traveling site. We’ve said that we can as a firm opt out of travel but I feel like if I decline, it takes me off a project and therefore puts my job at risk 🤷🏽‍♀️

Flying this last week was actually fine. I recommmend it and will be doing it again soon.
