In doing so, she quickly found out the different mask mandates and covid-19 precautions being taken in different states. Something that many travelers, like Ashlee Vaughn kept in mind.

“It was a good thing to research because I do want to be respectful of everybody so yeah it was pretty important,” said Ashlee Vaughn who was traveling from Tennessee.

“I am young and healthy and vaccinated and had covid already, so I know if I get sick it is not the end of the world, I am more worried about you know infecting people that could actually have a serious issue,” said Dane Wanee, who was traveling from Indiana.

People on the road said they enjoyed the nice weather and the chance to get out while trying to stay safe.
