    This hand sanitizer is a good plane-friendly product.

    Use these to sanitize plane and hotel surfaces.

    A touchless thermometer is important to have.

    N95 masks don't exist for kids. These are a good alternative (and can also be used by adults if N95 masks are not available).

General health necessities

    Some rural areas may have unreliable tap water, so it's important to have an emergency water purifier like this one.
