    Met imposes quarantine for artists arriving from China, Iran, South Korea, Japan, Italy, and Hong Kong because of coronavirus.

    I fear we're just seeing the tip of the iceberg here. I think we have a pandemic on our hands, and we're going to see more event cancellations, travel bans, and quarantines before this virus runs its course.

    I think you're right.

    I can't decide whether to be worried or to just carry on as normal. Two singers from the La Scala YAP have got it and La Scala will remain closed for the foreseeable future. Presumably these two were healthy prior to catching the virus and I'm curious to know just how ill, previously healthy people are once they've actually been diagnosed.

    A little operatic comic relief:
