    The only reason you wouldn't be able to go would be an airline stopping you. Some companies are getting their check-in staff to look you over, and if you look like you may be unwell then they may stop you flying.
    The thing to do is make sure you have travel insurance to cover the cost of this, should that scenario happen. The company will let you delay your flight until you are well again but yiou'll still have lost out on your accomodation.
    Best thing to do is check what the policy is with the company you're going to fly with

    I'm going to Spain on Tuesday so I've been worried all week about any family member getting it. Like you said Mike, I'll be devastated if we can't go. Apparently some airports are using thermal imaging to detect if passengers have a temperature. I don't know whether thats just on international arrivals, or departures too.
