    No way. No possibility. Trump stopped traveling for European (without GB), so we will stay at home. No long flight, not loosing money, I guess, I like this, now. I‘m not angry.

    Also, there likely won't be a march madness.

    Except for golf, where the players are far, far apart(no spectators moving ahead), all sports will be shut down for awhile I'm afraid.

    I'm sitting here waiting for the news to drop that March Madness is cancelled. Probably switch out to a football weekend in the fall.

    No changes, still can't wait to go to Vegas in July. I'm just hoping flight prices go way down among the current chaos. Then I'll book that and be set to go!

    Heading to Mexico on Monday. No changes in those plans either.

    I have several trips booked between now and June and will likely cancel all.

    Although I'm in the elderly group, (67) my health is good in regard to the things that might put me at risk with the virus. If bad back or feet counted, I'd be screwed. That said, DH has heart issues and had a real bout of breathing difficulties after his last surgery. I always go to Vegas solo or with a friend while he stays home and minds the farm. So what if I go and get exposed? While it may not kill me, I have other people around me to think about. My brother is 10 years older than me and his wife has heart problems. Not worth it. My inlaws were both around 90 when they passed away a couple of years ago. If they were still here we would be doing everything for them to see that they did not get exposed. I guess a lot of it depends on what kind of responsibilities a person has or might have in this situation.

    I also have too many animals counting on me to get sick.

    Welp, with baseball cancelled, we have decided to fly back to Cinci from Phoenix. Luckily we got seats, they were filling up fast! It's not easy cancelling a bunch of stuff using your phone! I called Delta, they have a 6 hour wait on phone calls!!!

    Same boat here. While I'm in good health at 60 and virus probably wouldn't be much more than a bad cold, I have a husband here at 70 that just got out of the hospital for lung issues and is now on O2 24/7. If I brought it home it could kill him.

    To us Vegas is an escape from everyday life, where we just want to gamble, eat, drink, and see shows during our stay. The Coronavirus has changed things in a way where we could not let loose with the grim reality of what's happening in this Country and around the world. The experts expect the situation to get exponentially worse before it begins to get better. As a result, we will not book a planned May birthday trip. Vegas will be there when this is over. I applaud those that will visit Vegas and I hope you all have a safe and rewarding trip. I look forward to reading the trip reports. Cheers!

    We had Bellagio booked in January for a May trip. I held off booking the flight and then continued to hold off as the information came in. Right now, we have no flight and I expect Dh will cancell the hotel soon. I think we will vacation in New England this spring taking the car to places we have not seen in a while---if that is still possible. That will allow us to drive home if all hell breaks loose.

    I'm booked for 5/2- 5/8. 47 y/o healthy single male, traveling solo and planning on staying downtown at Four Queens. As of now I plan on going if the casinos are still open for business then. This story changes so much by the day though that I am already accepting it may not happen. If the decision remains mine, I'm there.

    we drive (one plus), BUT considering our age (78,77) and zero/nada sports for awhile it was a no brainer to cancel March 19-26 trip. will re-evaluate everything in 60 days. host at a stations casino was sympathetic..."I understand completely."

    I didn't have anything on the books, but I'm actually considering heading out there this weekend-- both due to the rock bottom prices, and my suspicion that "business as usual" is about to get put on hold for an undetermined period of time. One last weekend of relative normalcy, so to speak.

    I was supposed to go with a group of 12 guys for a golf trip starting this Sunday until Thursday. While no one was worried about catching the virus, the trip has fallen apart due to all this constantly changing regulations. 2 guys couldn't do it because they were directed no travel from work, and getting stuck in a 14 day quarantine if something happened could end their employment. The other fear is schools shutting and not being home to help with kids, or worst case the shut down of domestic flights or airports. Last consideration was the weather is only mediocre for golf next week, so that helps lessen the sting.

    We will reschedule when we can, just didn't make sense to risk being stuck in LAS when we are all from Chicago. I would go solo, but I wouldn't want to have to drive home alone if it got there.

    My choice isn’t included, but if you’re interested, here goes:

    I had absolutely no interest in going, but I am now actively planning a trip as the incentives are pretty hard to pass up given the very minimal risk.
