Just found out she is 3 weeks pregnant...we are staying at a hotel on the Riverwalk for 4 nights. My entire family is urging me not to go since San Antonio has confirmed cases and there are many Mexicans there and the fact that she is pregnant. What do you all think ?

No reason to worry or cancel your trip, but if it's going to put a damper on your enjoyment, then cancel it. You have more of a chance of getting killed in a jet flying there.

San Antonio is not a problem, no more than Florida. There are Cubans in Florida, maybe you better leave now.

There are no cases in Cuba. Even Cuba has suspended flights from Mexico. http://seattletimes.nwsource.com/htm...flucuba28.html

I agree that his concerns are rather unnecessary, however, keep in mind we have federal embassies warning against travel into and out of Mexico as a result of the virus. San Antonio is not too far from Mexico. Heck, a baby from Brownsville died with the first case reported in Texas.

I guess I will just keep close tabs on it. Like I said, if she was not pregnant, I could give 3 flying pigs....if we get sick, we get some Tamiflu and get better. But she is pregnant, so it changes everything. Gonna keep my eyes very close on this one.

I think I would be more concerned about being on a crowded airplane than walking along the River Walk in San Antonio.

Keep in mind, the virus is only contracted by exchanging body fluids...ie kissing, sharing food, coughing or sneezing in someones face etc. It cannot survive on its own. Washing hands, avoiding handshakes, using hand sanitizer etc are all good precautions.

Any facility that is closing is to prevent the virus from being spread among people that are in rather confined areas. All the media images of sterilizing desks at schools, and computer keyboards, and mopping floors is to ease community concerns...it's really not necessary. It probably needed a good cleaning anyway!

Just keeping students or employees apart for the five day incubation period is the best preventative.

I agree that it's not worth cancelling today.

Airlines are allowing people to postpone/reschedule trips due to the flu. There are probably deadlines and time windows associated with cancelling any travel reservation. I'd recommend you check with both your hotel and airline to see what your deadlines are to reschedule if you decide not to travel. That'll let you know how much longer you can wait to make the decision.

What does her doc say? I'd listen to him above all. He should have her and the baby's health as his top concern.

Your wife watches too much Katie Couric(she looked good last night wearing white). No, but seriously, it is fine here, just do what you usually do
