Many readers have asked when they should begin reconsidering their travel plans as coronavirus fears intensify.
Tariro Mzezewa, a travel reporter for the New York Times, said the situation is still so fluid — so it’s impossible to predict what kind of travel advisories might exist weeks or months from now.

Remember: The US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the US State Department are both issuing regular travel advisories for destinations that are significantly impacted by the virus outbreak. Monitor those “closely and regularly,” advises Dr. Henry Wu, director of Emory Healthcare’s TravelWell Center.
