As stated above, as a non-citizen you won't get quarantined, you'd just be sent home. If you haven't been to Italy or the far east, I think there is very little chance of getting denied entry.
Life isn't about checking the boxes. Nobody cares.

That's all? I am hearing words about problems in the supply chain in the Kashrus world...

I just gave that as an example, it would affect anything with a supply chain that's impacted, my point was the end consumer might not see the problem for a few months

I think the main issue is the flight. Thatís the most likely place of catching anything.

Can wear an N95 if you're nervous

Plan on it. But not sure I'll have the patience to wear it for 11 hours

My opinion is to avoid all non-essential international travel, in case you end up being subject to a quarantine on the way back. Who would have thought 2 weeks ago that there was a problem in Italy? The past thing I'd want is to go to Israel and end up in 1 day quarantine on the way back, even if the statistical chance of getting sick is no more significant there.

Domestically, I'd be willing to fly right now.

Right now is key. Who knows what will happen in 2 days.

At least we are past most (all?) pesach runs.
Just because things turned out a certain way doesn't mean you were right.

As for industry - while some of the interruptions are immediate, understand that there is going to be a supply chain lag - i.e. Stores/retailers have inventory now, as do some factories, and those factories and their suppliers have components at hand. But if this shuts down component manufacture, it will have a lagged impact on the consumer.

In other words - The Electronic Device you're going to buy in June, which will be manufactured in April will be delayed because of parts that were not made in February

Oh absolutely. Knew about this for a while already. Products that were shipped before CNY will have some short term stock but I'm expecting at least a 2 month delay on production on orders after CNY.

  • Location: The value of a forum such as this one is not in that one can post a question and receive an answer, but in that the question has most likely been asked before, and the answer is available to him that will but only use the search function.
  • Programs: 1. Search on google. 2. Search in the right board of DDF with a general word or two. 3. Read the wiki. 4. Read the thread. 5. Ask away.

You are correct. I missed that. Most people call me just before they leave, so they aren't really interested in that kind of coverage, and definitely won't pay for it.

Your clients can enjoy the extra flexibility of knowing they can cancel their trip for almost any unforeseen reason that the Classic plan does not already cover at 100% and receive 80% of their non-refundable trip cost back in cash. With features like comprehensive trip cancellation, primary emergency medical coverage and 24-hour travel assistance, the Classic with Cancel Anytime plan is there if life throws an unexpected wrench in your clients' travel plans. Plan must be purchased on or before the final trip payment date and must cover the full non-refundable trip cost ($10,000 maximum)
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!
