Yoesmite virus?

Postby at2 » Sat Sep 01, 2012 5:11 am

I have recently heard the news that there is some sort of virus at Yosemite park, a place i will be visiting on the Chicago to San francisco tour. Can you please inform me whether it is now safe to camp there please?

Thank you.

Virus in Yosemite National Park
by Customer_Service » Tue Sep 04, 2012 10:37 am

04 September 2012

A virus has been discovered in the Yosemite National Park. This 'Hanatvirus' is focused around the 'Signature Tent Cabins' used in the National Park, and is contracted by breathing a particle from mice feces and mice urine.

Visitors to the Park, cannot contract the virus by walking around the park. Further, visitors need not wear a mask to avoid contagion. There is no increased risk to health by being in well ventilated areas.

G Adventures do not use these Signature Tent Cabins, and no adjustments to our itineraries or logistics are necessary.

If you have a spare house-cat at home, feel free to bring it for extra precaution

I haven't been everywhere, but it's on my list

If you never get lost, you never get found
