It would depend what you plan on doing there and how well you protect yourself. I am cancelling my LAS trip but I go there for gambling, food and shows. Talk about the trifecta of hotspots.
Same here. Booked Las Vegas for last week... Cancelled due to hot spot (and quarantine on return), and switched to a "non hotspot". Glad I did.

I'm actually booked also LAS for 2 weeks from today.  And that's what I'm contemplating.   I think i will wait until this friday to see the numbers and then I will decide.

I don't think it's particularly wise to travel somewhere where hospitals are overwhelmed regardless of any other risks.

I would cancel, I personally know young people who had it Purim/Pesach time and still have issues. No fever, but stomach problems and pains. I did book tickets for October and January (Thanks Dan/JJ, great prices)

In the same boat and am trying to convince myself it will be ok.
If I can't convince myself then no one can.  :)

I cancelled my trip. I would be too uncomfortable being around certain vulnerable family members once I get back from a covid location. Its not that much that i'n concerned for myself, rather concerned for the people I will be around. :-[

I had flights booked for family to MCO & cancelled for 2 reasons...1. Don't think it's fair to possibly bring it back to NJ (even a small chance). 2. My kids daycamps all sent out letters that if you are coming from a hotspot u can't send kids for 14 days.

How much of a hotspot is Orlando in reality? Im looking for a cheap house with a pool. From the cheaper options, Scottsdale seems real bad and Orlando seems shaky too.

I personally know 2 young people who came back from Miami and were positive. One had mild symptoms and the other a full blown case. Not looking to risk it. Where else is there within the USA?

Where does public opinion stand on 2 weeks in Scottsdale/ Mesa this August?

Where should we worry about risk of exposure?

I was planning on renting house  with pool in Orlando & just hanging around house....but I still would have to be in airport & on plane with hundreds of people...to me it wasn't worth the risk & the bother...

every flight I've been on so far , I've had 6ft distancing in all directions. No one in the row  front or back of me. DL & WN.
