David,

Smart move!

Hopefully, there will not be a second or third wave of Coronavirus in summer or early fall. Drawing out the spread of the virus is good for creating needed time to develop medicines/flu shots and handling patients without overwhelming hospitals, but it probably means the virus will be around longer but it is what it is! They are doing their best.

Good luck with the camp out in Sept!

Also had a trip to Oregon in mid June canceled. We're supposed to go to Spain and Italy and that is looking very iffy. It's that possible second and third wave that have me worried.

Doctors at mayo internally ( I know people who work there) have "suggested" the possibility for the coronavirus potentially hanging around for a significant amount of time. I think I heard Dr Mike Osterholm say the same thing. Mike is the head of Infectious Diseases at the U of M. The problem is there can be carriers that don't even know they have it spreading it for quite sometime into the future. Remember, confirmed cases is NOT the actual number of people that may have it. Health measures being taken now state and federally is just for slowing down the spread of the disease not attempting to stop it. I would not be surprise (guessing) if the actual number of people with it is at least 2 or 4 times more than confirmed cases.

Personally, I wouldn't go anywhere there is a large concentration of people, especially in areas that are already hard hit by the virus. In this case that is most of Europe and Italy is one of the worst!


Another very real problem is air line transportation. At some point they will have to let them become operational again The problem is people having the virus that do not know they have it flying and starting the spread of the virus all over again, globally.

I guess the only way to truly find out what will happen is through the passing of time.

BE CAREFUL OUT THERE!

Agree 100%. I think the old saying was "Discretion is the better part of valor". Much better to reschedule than play Russian Roulette.
