It won't effect mine, most of my trips are local anyway. I am going to Canada in May, so I suppose if they close the border it would effect me. I live in an area that has many retired people who go south vatious times between January and April. None of them have cancelled any of their flights these last couple months of travel.

In the end I think it will be another variation of the flu. Eventually they will have a vaccine, in the mean time people should do what they can to keep a sanitized environment around them. If your older or have health issues I would be very aware of feeling sick and get treated right away just to be on safe side.

I personallly believe it's all hype from the media . Every year there is a new strain of the flu and everyone gets crazy. I'm certainly not saying people shouldn't wash their hands, but everyone seems crazy on these hand sanitizers  and disinfectants. Let your body build up it's immune system.
P.S.  I'm still fishing.

The CDC estimates the 2018-19 season had 35.5 million sick with regular influenza. 16.5 million went to the DR's for it. 490,600 hospitalized and 34,200 deaths. Corona just doesn't seem to be this bad. Maybe I'm wrong, but I also think this is another political ploy. "Never let a crisis go to waste"

It's not hype if you live in a place where people are packed together like worms in a coffee can.

I work part time in a retail environment. The computers, shopping carts, employee break room, rest rooms and grateful customers who want to shake your hand make me cringe. I carry hand sanitizer all the time. I have since I started in the store.

Wash your hands.....really wash your hands, avoid touching your face, eyes and nose and don't hang around with sick people! If you're ill....STAY HOME!

That said, we sold out of every kind of dust mask and respirator we stocked  about 3 weeks ago. Now it's rubber gloves. Next they'll be buying giant plastic bags and tyvek suits to wear.

DS...you hit the nail on the head!

Will it affect my fishing? No.....I fish alone.

What the fake impeachment failed to accomplish, the fake coronavirus scare is succeeding to do. The fake news has successfully shattered the confidence of the American People.  There are many things that occur that kill way more people than the coronavirus.  We need to stop running around with our hair on fire and live our lives. Go to work, go fishing, enjoy your families and ignore fake news.

And this is why I don't watch or read the news. Seriously the last time I watched the news was on Halloween because we were at my in laws house and it was on their TV. Not worth my time or aggravation.

Well, ignorance is bliss I've heard. I choose to listen and decide for myself.

I can understand a scare in Long Island. Hope everything goes well for him Dom.

We just cancelled our flight to Seattle. My youngest son was scheduled to defend his doctoral research on the 19th at the university of Washington.  The campus is now closed and a staff member there tested positive.  My son tells me seattle is turning into a ghost town.  People are afraid to go out.  Pikes market is empty.
This is what I know. Its real for me and some of you better start believing too.

Won't affect me at all - the vast majority of the people that get it experience symptoms similar to a mild cold.  The reaction of the media is ridiculous.  Its only a big deal because they want it to be a big deal.

That's a shame. But, better safe than sorry.
