NEW YORK, NY - JUNE 05: Planes sit on the runway at John F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK) on June 5, 2017 in New York City. Part of what the White House is calling the president's "infrastructure week," President Donald Trump announced Monday a plan to privatize the nation's air traffic control system. If enacted, it would remove the job of tracking and guiding airplanes from the oversight of the Federal Aviation Administration.

It looks like more planes will be packed over Labor Day weekend. Which surprises me!

According to data collected by travel app TripIt, about six million Americans will take to the skies for the holiday. Shockingly, the bulk of travelers are headed to Florida, Arizona, Nevada, Mexico, and the Caribbean, all of which are spiking COVID-19 cases.

Obviously there’s concern over visitors to these spots, as depending on how risky their behavior, the vacationers will bring COVID to their home states.
