So far nothing dramatic. Either way, it doesnt look like theyll be selecting states or countries, its all or nothing. They also wont be banning entry for foreigners, only requiring quarantine possibly.

Hotels and dorms do not qualify as a place to carry out the quarantine for tourists, so de facto ban if it ends up happening.

My flight is one of theses and see its cancelled from AM today. Was rebooked with a connection that's impossible to make. Departing before landing!! Weird part is that some of these flights still show up in OTA's.
Always praying for delayed baggage.

Nope. Not retroactive and enters into effect in 72 hours. Press talks about thousands of flights to be cancelled

They ain't flying planes empty one-way just so you can get home
Life isn't about checking the boxes. Nobody cares.

They do that after Yom Kippur...

But I did tell family there to get on the next flights out.

Delta suspends flights to TLV March 14-24

https://news.delta.com/delta-suspends-service-new-york-jfk-rome-and-tel-aviv
Amazing that TLV and FCO are lumped together. Situation is so different.
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!
