5 Places You Are Most Likely to Catch Delta

The Delta variant is "more transmissible" and therefore more dangerous, and even those vaccinated can possibly catch it. Now is no time to let your guard down. Wear your mask, social distance, and remember these five places you are most likely to catch the Delta variant, according to experts. Read on for all five—and to ensure your health and the health of others, don't miss these Sure Signs You've Already Had COVID.

1

Avoid Large Crowds

Dr. Anthony Fauci, the nation's leading infectious disease expert,  recently of outdoor college sports: "I don't think it's smart. Outdoors is always better than indoors, but even when you have such a congregate setting of people close together — first, you should be vaccinated. And when you do have congregate settings, particularly indoors, you should be wearing a mask."

Enter Bars with Caution

Bars have become the hotspot for both COVID-19 and the Delta variant. "Unfortunately, as bars have reopened, we have seen a large number of young people gathering but not necessarily being wary that COVID-19 is still a problem," says Boris Lushniak, MD, Dean of the University of Maryland School of Public Health to RD.com.

Go to Gyms That Require Vaccinations

Make sure your gym requires vaccinations or else be warned: Gyms are hotspots for the virus due to bad ventilation, packed fitness classes, and making people sweat. The CDC reported outbreaks in gyms in Chicago and Hawaii. They recommend gyms open windows, make masks required, and install social distancing barriers. "These practices show we care about our own health but also the health of those around us," Dr. Lushniak says. "This is the right thing to do and is part of the weaponry to battle the pandemic."

Wear a Mask on Transportation

Public transportation, like buses and trains, are difficult to social distance due to the close seating and small space. Buses and trains also do not have a passenger limit, unlike planes, which means they are more likely to be crowded. Lastly, it is hard or impossible to open windows, which leads to a lack of ventilation.

Dr. Fauci Said This About the Safety of Flights

Air travel has always been a risk, due to the close seating arrangements and the cleanliness; the airport alone can be worse than the plane. So, if you need to fly, take precautions. "Everything has to be put into the context of what your ability is to take a finite risk," said Dr. Fauci when asked about kids being able to fly. "Everything is relative. Planes, given the filtering on board, are relatively safe. If you have children that come over from Ireland, we recommend that they wear masks in congregated settings."

How to Stay Safe Out There

Follow the public health fundamentals and help end this pandemic, no matter where you live—get vaccinated ASAP; if you live in an area with low vaccination rates, wear an N95 face mask, don't travel, social distance, avoid large crowds, don't go indoors with people you're not sheltering with (especially in bars), practice good hand hygiene, and to protect your life and the lives of others, don't visit any of these 35 Places You're Most Likely to Catch COVID.
