Is Ebola affecting your travel? Take our poll

A protester stands outside the White House in Washington DC., USA, 17 October 2014 holding a placard asking President Obama to ban flights in effort to stop Ebola , the deadly epidemic that has already reached US soil. The debate surrounding travel bans as a way to curb the spread of Ebola has intensified after a congressional hearing on 16 October 2014, unleashing a flurry of impassioned arguments on both sides.

The Ebola outbreak is buffeting travel in the United States and beyond.

A man is being monitored for the disease aboard a Carnival cruise; more airline passengers have been warned after flying on a Frontier Airlines plane on which a now Ebola-afflicted nurse flew; some major airports in the U.S. and Europe are screening passengers; and travel bans to the afflicted areas in West Africa could increase.

Is Ebola affecting your travel plans? Or do you think the reaction/fears are excessive?  Take our poll below. (Have more to say?  Add a comment.)
