On Sunday Feb. 2, 2015 the Travel section of the Chicago Tribune wrote about a new mosquito-borne virus called CHIKUNGUNYA that is prevalent in Puerto Rico, and there is no vaccine. What is Road Scholar' position on this?

I am attending the March 22, to March 29, 2015 class in Puerto Rico. I fly out of San Diego to Miami and arrive in Puerto Rico Sunday morning(22nd),at 9:26AM. Will go to the hotel, store the suitcase, and walk around until check in. Anyone else arriving early Sunday? Would love to hear from fellow participants.

Hi, Shirl - I'm single, too. See the note below re weather - it may rain. Flying from Kansas City to Houston, arriving in PR at 4:55 p.m. Sunday. Wondering if you or others are arriving about then, to share a taxi. See you tomorrow evening!
