Leaving on a jet plane? Don't leave home without April's SafeTravel and SafeStay protocols - and list of recommended SafeMasks.
Trusted by top government officials to lead the research behind our nation's pandemic strategy, we can help you open your doors safely - and keep them open.
April Armstrong led evaluation of our nation's only "whole of society" full-scale pandemic preparedness and response training research for which Dr. Anthony Fauci served as a lead advisor. She spent nearly a decade working in the research which contributed massively to ground-breaking policies, including the National Pandemic Strategy, designed to guide coordinated national response to a range of catastrophic disasters.
April started this website back in June 2020, initially to help friends and family, and then her community. It's first feature was the popular SafeMask List, which pointed people to affordable, reusable protective masks that did not take away from the supply of surgical N-95 respirators that healthcare providers needed, while offering superior respiratory protection to everyday people. She created the free COVIDSafeVisits app in September 2020, to help people quickly do a behavioral risk screen on each other before visiting with each other indoors after seeing the surges in illness and deaths from earlier holiday periods. She has since created more than 30 FAQ videos answering the most frequently-asked questions she receives.
She is CEO of AHA Insight, which provides trusted leadership advisory to top government officials and corporate executives on the "people" side of transformational change.
How Safe Is Air Travel?
No, you do not need to travel in a HAZMAT suit, but April does strongly recommend traveling in a "protective" mask in any public transportation environment. This is especially important if you have not yet been vaccinated against COVID-19. Even if you have been vaccinated, you may desire to take extra precautions to stay safe from emerging COVID-19 variants or any of the eight major respiratory viruses that are readily transmitted in tight public spaces such as travel environments.
April recommends adding eye protection for people who desire extra protection in places where you may be in forced proximity with others for any duration of time in a closed environment (such as airplanes). Some gear to consider include:
