PHILADELPHIA (WPVI) – If this is a normal summer, Michele McCloskey and her five children will plan their summer vacation. “We will have our week over and the children will be waiting for something,” McCloskey said. Instead, coronavirus keeps them at home. However, he said his family had made many day trips to various beaches in New Jersey. By declaring easing restrictions across the country, there has been an increase in holiday bookings, according to travel agents based in Villanova. “We have a huge number of incoming calls,” said Joshua Bush, from Avenue Two Travel. “This is not necessarily the pre-COVID level but they are crazy, they have been locked up for too long and they are planning to plan their next vacation,” Bush said, saying he had seen an increase in autumn air travel to the western national. park, residence to Center City Philadelphia and overland trips to states such as Florida. “The pleasure of being with family and being outside far exceeds the inconvenience of having to take these precautions and wear a mask and do what you need to do,” Bush said. With Universal Orlando and Six Flags Frontier City reopening on June 5, Kate Cronan, an ER pediatrician for Nemours / Alfred I. The DuPont Hospital for Children says the safest vacation is staycation. “I know people want to fly and want to travel but they really have to take those precautions, wash their hands, try not to use the bathroom too often and if they do, all hand washing, etc. should happen. “McCloskey said he wasn’t ready to go on an overnight trip first. “Will we go here to take the necessary precautions or will we get there and realize that we feel insecure and want to go home immediately?” McCloskey said.
