The correct answer is that you do nothing. You are the one choosing to use air travel, you are the one taking the risk that you will be infected by all manner of airborne pathogens which are circulated and recycled through the pressurised cabin by the A/C and oxygen.

Other than that, changing seat will not work, if the virus is already in the air, it might (I AM NOT A DOCTOR) infect everyone. From what I can see on the internet about it, is that there is nothing you can do about it other than not flying; most suggestions are ...

The Strava Global Heatmap is still available, though Strava users can opt out to having their data added to the heatmap. In-app, you can look up Segments, which are user-defined running (or cycling) routes for which people can set personal best times or try to top the leaderboards.
