Your list should include a hand sanitizer (with more than 70% alcohol), disinfectant wipes, gloves, tissues, disinfectant spray, soap strips, and face mask. These items will help you maintain hygiene and help in preventing you from catching in on the infection.

Sanitize your surroundings
While taking your seat, quickly sanitize the back, front, flap, tray table of your seat with disinfectant spray or wipes. Do not use wipes on soft surfaces, which would leave an uncomfortable wet seat and spread the germs out further.
