The swine flu situation continues to evolve as more schools open around the country and the possibility for spread of the disease heightens. While information gathered over the past four months suggests that the swine flu, also known as H1N1, is no more severe than the annual seasonal flu, it's critical that the travel community do all we can to ensure that the spread of the disease is limited.
At the same time, it is vital that we take this opportunity to communicate to policymakers, health officials, opinion leaders and the media about the critical role travel plays in our economy, to ensure appropriate responses as new information about swine flu becomes available.
