Thanksgiving travel amid H1N1 fears

[KARE11 News, November 24, 2009] It's as much a part of Thanksgiving as the turkey—the travel. But this year's trip seems to pack an extra punch: the threat of picking up H1N1 on board a crowded plane. "A sick person should not be around other people," said Dr. Frank Rhame, an Infectious Disease Expert with Allina Hospitals. Rhame says even those traveling on the road may need to cancel their holiday plans if they want to keep their family healthy.  Beyond a gathering of a wide variety of ages, Rhames says the family holiday can also bring together people from around the country.
