Summary163 Max talks about his roundtrip from SFO to Knoxville on the airlines and an MIT study that estimates the chances of catching COVID on an airline flight. While the terminals appear safe, the highest risk is in flight, as not everyone is properly masked. He shares what he learned about the mask he was wearing and has recommendations for choosing a mask. While safe, airline travel isn’t a lot of fun.
