Skip a flight if you have symptoms
By Diana Kohnle
(HealthDay News) -- Since germs can spread easily in a confined airplane cabin, it's important to make sure that it's safe to fly.
The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says you should avoid plane travel if:
- You have a baby who is less than 2 days old, or if you're beyond 36 weeks pregnant.
- You've had a recent surgery or injury to the head, eye or stomach.
- You've had a recent stroke or heart attack.
- You've had recent chest pain, sinus problems, brain swelling, a contagious illness, sickle cell disease, psychotic episode or a serious respiratory disease.
- You've had a recent fever and rash, vomiting or diarrhea.
