There are still no reported cases of flu on the Riviera Maya. The only noticeable signs is a few people here and there wearing masks, and the pharmacies being out of masks and hand sanitizer.
I honestly feel safer here than in Houston, where a kid died from the flu and did go to a big mall while sick... Think about it : Cancun is farther away from Mexico City than Houston is (807 miles versus 749) !! And I don't think the border will be an efficient barried, even if the flu has no visa to enter. And there are 49 cases in NYC - none here - why would it be safer to fly to NYC than to Cancun ?
I also still don't think it's a big issue, because people that die actually remainined unattended during a long period of time (the first woman was treated for throat infection, then pneumonia before they detected the flu ; same for the kid) and don't necessarily contaminate their relatives.
I also notice that people that gety sick on flights are only a few. i.e., it's not the whole flight that get sick but only a handful. So is it that contagious ?
Also, the death toll does not increase.
Anyway, I'm here getting married tomorrow. 10 of my guests cancelled so we will be around 25. My family is there (and my bro will get quarantined when going back to Singapore) ; DH family is there ; and a few friends (I'm missing two in my party and DH 1).
We still plan to have a good time !
And on return I will be working from home for 72 hours - sounds like extra vacation to me !

It makes me feel alot better, Im not the only one who's freaking out, and my wedding isnt until the beginning of 2011. I guess the guests would just have to get over it. (lol)
Your wedding will be a trip of a life time....
ENJOY every minute of it!!

I'll be sure to report about the situation when I get back - I'll actually try to report while I'm down there. I may not sign up for Internet in my room, but I can always BDW it from my iphone

I go to see my (new) doc on Monday. I'm hoping he won't freak out on me! Fingers are crossed!!!
