Caution COVID-19 information: If you're planning to fly, there will very likely be COVID-related requirements, at least wearing a mask and maybe also showing proof of vaccination, a negative test, or something else. Keep in mind that outbreaks and restrictions can change rapidly and flight cancellations are more common than usual these days. See the main COVID-19 pandemic article for more.
