        MarieSam go for it-copy away. You will be fine your wedding is at the end of June and I have faith that this will be cleared up in the next week or so.

        positive focus. I go back and forth between laughing and tearing up. One piece of advice... Do not watch FOX news. They sensationalize everything IMHO. check out the CDC website or Reuters or something less entertainment-y. It's hard I know but it has helped me keep my emotions in check.

          Hi Guys

          this is what we emailed our guests - have gotten positive responses

          Hello,

          We wanted to write to all of you and address the concerns over the swine flu. We have been monitoring the situation closely and while neither of us are doctors we feel that if travelers take the precautions detailed by the CDC (we listed below) that you will greatly reduce your risks.

          This is a flu concentrated in the Mexico City region where many residents have no medical care. As in the USA and Europe when it is flu season those infected people who do not seek medical attention suffer worse than those who consult doctors. The cases of swine flu that have occurred in the USA have had the symptoms of the regular flu - which during the year, does not stop us from proceeding with our normal daily lives - nor should this disturb our travel plans. We have contacted the resort and they have assured us there is no cause for alarm. They are taking every precaution to ensure the safety of all their guests.

          The distance from Mexico City to Puerto Morelos is nearly 750 miles. It seems most unfortunate that Mexico City and Puerto Morelos share the same country name, However the Cancun area is much closer to Belize, Guatemala, Honduras, El Salvador, Nicaragua, Costa Rica, and other countries than Mexico City.

          We understand the concern you may be feeling. The intent of our wedding is for people to be able to relax and have fun. We would like to do everything that we can to help allay your fears. Please let us know if there is anything else we can do and do not hesitate to call or email us with any question. The following is direct from the CDC website:
          CDC Recommendations as of Monday April 27th 1:30pm EST

          CDC (Center for Disease Control and Prevention) has NOT recommended that people avoid travel to Mexico at this time. If you are planning travel to Mexico, follow these recommendations to reduce your risk of infection and help you stay healthy.

            This is from the WHO press conference:

            WHO does not recommend closing borders or restrictions of travel. Neither would have any effect on further spread. It would however cause a great deal of disruption. Focus on the safety means steps can be taken to reduce the chances, but closing borders would not be helpful. What is more important to avoid travel while sick and seeking medical attention if you become sick.

              I actually think Fox News is one of the better ones to watch on something like this
