Hi. We are flying out on Thursday to Venice. One of our group asked at the EasyJet desk yesterday at Luton airport, and it sounds like they are being quite good about changing your flights if you are nervous about going. It depends on the airline though. We are still going to italy, as long as they will let us in we are there!

Plan to travel unless advised otherwise I think... it's obviously liable to change but the current government travel advice is here :-

We are BA flight advising nothing as yet we may be allowed in but not allowed out! I like the idea of extra skiing but without panic buying food!
The health minister says if u planning to go to northern Italy take 10 days off isolation when u return doh

Yes I think the worry is getting out again. I've bought some emergency pot noodles just in case!
I think they were advising you only need to self isolate if you were in any of the quarantined places or if you are feeling unwell, but maybe its changed since this am.

The virus is highly transmissible and has spread across Italy and into Austria, cases linked to the outbreak in Lombardy have been confirmed in Bolzano and Innsbruck. La Republica has a map showing where the virus has spread to

Panic buying seems to have started, there are pictures in the Italian press showing empty supermarket shelves.

If there is an outbreak where you are planning to stay you could be quarantined, you are unlikely to get any extra skiing as you probably won't be allowed out. If you exhibit flu like symptoms on your return you might have to self-isolate for 14 days.

I'm not one of nature's cynics, but presumably the statistical risk of getting seriously injured on a ski holiday is higher than the risk of catching any viral illness ?

Well the upside is that there might be a few cheap weeks going ....
