Will it influence your travel plans this summer?
It seems to be a huge topic of discussion lately and I know folks who are avoiding plane flights and certain countries (Mexico) this summer.
There have been school closings in our area. But, I haven't thought of avoiding school functions or certain towns that have had a case reported.
Am I stupid? Do people have information that I don't?
My children's orthodontist said she is avoiding vacations that involve plane flight because she fears that if the flu progresses that travel will be restricted.
A college student I worked with last week told me that she is avoiding the crowded Jersey shore until the swine flu outbreak is over.
Are they alarmists, ultra smart, or scaredy cats?
I don't know.
I do know that my great-grandmother died in the last flu epidemic leaving an infant (my grandmother) and two toddlers. Flu can kill.
Should I be scared?
I don't think so. What do you think?
