As many of you know, the highly publicized coronavirus in mainland China continues to impact businesses, schools, travel and relocation.
The Chinese government has extended the Lunar New Year holiday through February 2nd and some provinces have pushed business closings until February 9th.  Some schools have even been delayed to reopen after that time frame (all  of this is subject to change).
The US Center for Disease Control (CDC) is advising all US citizens to avoid nonessential travel to China.  Flights and rail service are being restricted within China, as well as other Asian countries.  As of January 28th, there is a partial closing of the border between Hong Kong and Mainland China.  The World Health Organization revised its global risk assessment for the outbreak from moderate to high (as reported January 29th in The New York Times).  Several large multi-national companies have warned employees not to travel within mainland China.
