Is Zika Changing How You Travel?
« on: January 24, 2016, 03:55:45 PM »
I am traveling to the bahamas.  As of now there are no reports of the virus; But my wife is pregnant. Should i be concerned and cancel my trip? or should I just take necessary precautions?

(I want to know what others would do)

I thinkthat it wiuld be easiest for the doc to just say no, and not do necessary research  (now dont turn this discussion  into if my wifes doc is good or not ;))

(I want to know what others would do)

other than cancelling, what precautions do you mean? long sleeve/long skirt?
