With more and more countries/airlines closing down flights with almost no notice, at this point in time I would only consider travelling if I had a gun to my head... :(

If only I don't have business here, I would go to China to wait out the storm. The most dangerous place is the safest, or at least one of the safest now unless you will consider ice-cold Greenland.

Have had tickets since November for our annual visit arriving at the end of May. Next step, in a couple of weeks, is to apply for visas. If its logistically possible, we will follow the usual itinerary, transiting through Japan.

All the places to eat out have been restricted, by order of the Iowa Governor, to curb service only; no sit down restaurant meals until further notice. Schools likewise are restricted to virtual classes; many employers are instituting work-from-home programs, as well. My to-do list of household chores may finally get some attention.

I know some people who left Europe on Monday, for a vacation on Bali. And yes, in two weeks they will appear in a newspaper article in their home country complaining about their embassy, demanding their government takes action and repatriates them.

More likely they’ll want their government to pay for another month of “quarantine” in Bali.

My younger daughter is in Ohio. No school activity, on-line only, no tournament (she's tennis player) since 2 weeks ago. So, I asked her to visit us in Egypt or going home to Jakarta or Bali.
She refused as she hoped the practice session with her team and coaches still possible.
Unfortunately not, most of students including her team and coach are leaving. She's alone at home, practically no activity. Too late to visit us.
Not much or probably nothing we can do.

Oh Wisnu, that must be quite a worry for you :(

Hopefully she can bond with other students. Sharing your problems with like minded students can form a lifelong connection.

Currently waiting for Air China to cancel my end-of-May & returning mid-June flights to the US. I figure it will be easier to get a refund after the airline cancels the flights.
Reading this I think I wouldn't wait.


You never know if there's not some small print on terms & conditions...

And it's a bit of a sword of Damocles to wait if a flight will be canceled.

As you can see at the bottom, they added this option:

Reasons for Refund*
Please select one of the following options:
Personal reason(s)
Flight cancellation/delay/New Coronavirus(2019-nCoV) epidemic situation (Confirmation of flight cancellation/delay/New Coronavirus(2019-nCoV) will be based on the information from Air China's system and regulation. The request will be processed as "due to personal reasons" if the conditions on flight cancellation/delay/New Coronavirus(2019-nCoV) epidemic situation are not met.
