World Health Organization Chief just declared Europe the current epicenter of covid 19 pandemic. Good move by Trump to ban flights from europe just as he did earlier with china

I was not confused.

Yea, a truthful, factual response! Thank you.

This is the letter that agents were told to use for their 70 and over clients wishing to cruise:

The WHO (World Health Organization) had working tests that they offered to the USA, and our government rejected them. That is one of the several reasons why we have a test kit shortage. Certainly not the only reason - but one of them.

Ireland is not attached to Europe and it would ruin your St Patricks day celebrations if you banned Ireland !!!!!

News flash just come through though that UK and Ireland are now on the 30 day no travel list.

Here's hoping it sorts itself out. My house starts construction on 30th March (Thank you Gold Wing Nuts - your service is even more valuable now ). We are due to close on 22nd June so fingers crossed the flights will be open again for then... and the GBP:USD will have corrected... 1.29 on Monday when we sent our final 20% deposit... 1.20 today.... Our home got $30,000 more expensive this week....

Stay healthy we hope to be coming out soon
