Travel Alert issued by the US Department of State

Seems that precautionary measures might pick up in China as the winter approaches in order to slow the transmission of the H1N1 virus.

Although situations where Americans have been quarantined have diminished since September, those numbers might rise again as we head into the winter months.

The US Department of State warns travelers that children being separated from their parents as well as children being given medications without parental consent are both possibilities. Everyone planning to travel to China in the coming months, but especially those traveling with children, should be advised to do their research.
