Q: With all the virus problems in the news, should we postpone our Asian trip? MJ, San Francisco CA

A: It is getting serious. Keep checking the internet for breaking travel info before you decide. Also, when you fly anywhere these days, take intelligent precautions against catching flu, colds and worse.

For example, when you do go, try to book a window seat with an overhead fresh air duct. Also, if next to a cougher or sneezer, quickly ask the flight attendant to move you to an empty seat next to healthy passengers. And, of course, pack a pocket with face masks and disposable medicated wet wipes.
