"Oh how exciting! How was your trip?!"

Seriously, I am NOT buying into the hype. My father-in-law died of the FLU last year. Sadly, he was not the only one that died of the flu from that same retirement facility. I believe 61,000 people died of the common cold & flu that year in the US.

Knowing those statistics, I'm not about to fall for the media hype. I am convinced that their only concern is selecting the next president for us - at any cost!

What we need to be focusing on is making sure our family members have the flu vaccine and the media has taken our minds completely off of that. 

Stepping down from soapbox now...

Do you mean, beyond welcoming them home? ? ?  I think those who are traveling overseas, are likely "on top" of news events.

I would probably do the same thing I'll be doing with anyone else I see these ...say "Hello."

Welcome back?
I guess I’m not your question -
What’s your point?
What does them being overseas have to do with me? Well, other than it probably interrupted our sales process if they’re buying something and had no effect on our sales process if I was selling something for them.

Seriously?  We have run out of masks in Santa Barbara, those were the notices at ACE this morning.!  There are safeguards in place.  What next will we all be buying Hazmat suits?  

On a better note, happy birthday!  A

Over what seas? I'm not sure Salton counts. 

I'm watching you Will! LOLLL
Isn't your birthday coming up?

Seriously . . . I believe there are systems in place to minimize risk. I'd be curious to know what happened when they arrived home. 

Then what are y'all looking to do and how can I help?

Unless I was meeting them, I would not be concerned.  The usual quarantine is 2 weeks, so unless they are feeling poorly I wouldn't think about it.  There are many people travelling and putting their hands all over grocery carts, doors, etc., so do what you can to protect yourself and carry on.

I have a temperature probe. 

The question is where will I stick it?

If TSA and all the layers of gate keepers didn't route the to quarantine, I won't either.  But I may ask, "Can you close if 2 weeks?"

It depends. Are they an active client involved in buying a property from you? If they are cash buyers, no problem. Otherwise...

There is nothing for me to do other than ask them about their trip and perhaps see some photos if they were there for pleasure and not business.
