Oh well, it was fun while it lasted.
I'm still on for an upcoming business trip on DL, but will continue to monitor the situation, keep taking precautions. I'll try to give a trip report when I return.
Personally, I'm most concerned for elderly relatives including my parents as well as an aunt in a nursing facility. I was just chatting with a neighbor with twins that are now in fifth grade. She's thankful her twins are at an age in which they are more resilient to coronavirus and are not infants which, like elderly people and people with underlying conditions, are much more vulnerable. I feel the same way about my daughter who for now still plans on a spring break trip next week with friends (driving), although her college classes will be online-only when she get back.
Like SaabFA71, I've put off my trip. It's not that urgent, and some business can be done via the likes of Facetime. While I wish I could support airlines like I'm doing with restaurants (doing drive-thru/carry out when restaurants are otherwise shut down), we need to protect ourselves and our families as much as we can pragmatically do so.
To put things into a little perspective, Italy is now up to just over 600 COVID-19 fatalities in a single day....
