While the 4th of July is expected to cause a busy travel weekend, these additional travel tips will help get passengers to their boarding gate safely and faster:

• Face coverings are required in all Airport facilities.
• Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
• Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth.
• Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash and clean your hands.
• Always wear socks when traveling, so if you need to remove your footwear for TSA screening you are not barefoot.
• Place items from your pockets inside your carry-on bag before arriving at the TSA screening checkpoint to reduce your contact with surfaces and reduce waiting time.
• TSA allows one up to 12-ounce liquid hand sanitizer container per passenger in carry-on bags.
• Check in online in advance and print a boarding pass. TSA and SJC airlines accept mobile boarding passes but having a printed pass can be helpful if a mobile device experiences power or connectivity issues.
• Even with a boarding pass, reconfirm airline flight status before leaving for the airport.
• Flight schedules may change at the departure or arrival city due to inclement weather or other factors.

Travelers are encouraged to check with their airlines for updates and arrive early to ensure on-time boarding as well as time for any new travel requirements.
