EDIT 3: A lot has changed since February. This post does not reflect my plans for the near future, but I'm leaving the rest intact for context. END EDIT Lots of people have plans for trips in the summer of 2020. As of Feb. 27, the (US) CDC recommends to avoid non-essential travel to China and South Korea. For Japan, Iran, and Italy, travelers should practice "enhanced precautions". The CDC site this morning says it's not currently spreading "within the community" in the U.S., but the first such case has shown up in California. Enhanced precautions (currently for Iran, Japan, and South Korea) are: Avoid contact with sick people. Avoid touching your eyes, nose, or mouth with unwashed hands. Clean your hands often by washing them with soap and water for at least 20 seconds or using an alcohol-based hand sanitizer that contains at 60%–95% alcohol. Soap and water should be used if hands are visibly dirty. It is especially important to clean hands after going to the bathroom; before eating; and after coughing, sneezing or blowing your nose. Don't travel when sick and if you have symptoms, seek medical attention but call ahead instead of dropping in. There's much more if you have symptoms. While these enhanced precautions are currently for China and Korea, they may apply to other areas later in the year. I'm starting this thread because being informed is a large part of being prepared many of us have made extensive arrangements for travel this year and are reluctant to stay home out of fear motorcycle travel is not like other types of travel. While we may avoid airports (or may not), we will probably deal with many people in a day for fuel, food, and lodging. Usual motorcycle travel may mean less handwashing rather than more. COVID-19 may be like SARS in many ways, but SARS was contained fairly quickly while COVID-19 has gotten a head-start on us. EDIT: My health is good and I rarely get sick. If I have symptoms this summer, I must treat them with more care for the public good. EDIT MORE: I'm not a medical professional, but I'd like to assemble suggestions for motorcycle travel this year. Know the number to call if you have symptoms of COVID-19. Do not go to a medical clinic or hospital without contacting them first. Take a thermometer. If you have symptoms, take your temperature. If you're in questionable company, take your temperature 3 times a day anyway. Take hand sanitizer. Those with 60% to 70% alcohol seem to be most effective.
