I have a trip planned in March and I am definitely going. A virus is not going to make me hole up in my house. That is stupid. I would rather die than live in a world where I hole up in my house because of a virus.

Going to Iceland in 2 weeks. Not worried in the least bit even though there are active cases there.

Have a cruise scheduled for the first week of May. Unless something changes between now and then, not really concerned about it.

I have 2 domestic trips planned, one flying, one driving. doesn't seem riskier than going to work each day in New York.

But it's still riskier than getting a soda from a vending machine
