FWIW no mention was made of any of our outlines at the FAC presentations. I don't even know if the supervisor had them printed out.

Not only that, but the advisory area is what, maybe 2 square miles? That is 0.000053% of the area of the U.S. It's not like the CDC is saying to avoid all of Florida, in which case it would be...

The real danger is the trip from the airport to the hotel. Once inside the hotel I guess we are pretty safe, and if I'm willing to stay inside for 3 days it shouldn't be a huge issue.

That said,...

I saw a report today that forecasted that Zika would be less of an issue by Nov/Dec due to the colder weather, but I would still expect pockets of it around. I'm really having a hard time deciding...

When I emailed the SOA 2 weeks ago they said they were not planning on moving it, but they were monitoring the situation. It might require the CDC to issue a Miami-wide alert to get it moved.
