Hope there are a lot of sky-is-falling campers out there, there'll be more campsites available to the rest of us.

My thoughts are that if the media keeps pushing this to a near panic stage, azdryheat would be correct and more campgrounds will open up.
Mind you, I'm not saying that notice/information of this infection is not needed, just not constant to boost ratings and feed the hype.
We will take precautions, but will not lock ourselves up in the basement and shun the outside world.
We RV!

Since the government in usa, rightly or wrongly, is not being communicative about the number of folks infected, and that there are now 105,xxx cases world wide, I think it is being under reported badly.

Florida may be fine--but would you head out to the state of Washington?

This is a tough situation as we are supposed to leave for Florida the end of March and the fear of a regional isolation or quarantine orders is really causing us to re-consider on a day to day basis whether to go or not.
We are also wondering how much fun we can have when most everyone has succumbed to media hyped fear mongering.

There's the rub Don! How quickly could any particular place become the next regional hot spot.

In Washington, they project double the number of cases every six days.

Yesterday there were 4 confirmed cases in Florida.

Interesting. State of Georgia just announced that Hard Labor Creek SP is going to be used for isolation for victims. They have moved isolation some trailers in and there is other equipment in route.

Florida has had a death, in greater Orlando.

The health office is suggesting that seniors stay at home (i.e. self quarantine) unless they must go out.

I'd cancel the trip.

A large RV park in Washington State is our summer home for around 4 months. We may just end up having to staying in Arizona for the summer. We have a park model that is well insulated and cools pretty well. There are 50 or 60 couples out of a little over 800 sites that stay year round.

We're in Florida now and actually feel as safe as anywhere. We aren't going to public events, taking precautions washing hands and sanitizing when washing can't be done.

We're pretty much in the boonies and the park has larger sites compared with many we've been in. We're doing waves and elbow bumps rather than hugs and hand shakes.

I don't see any larger threat here than anywhere else other than in the center of a hot zone.

We're in Florida and I'm thinking of going home a few weeks early.
