Do you decline traveling during flu season in general? You're more likely to get the flu than this virus.

Wash your hands. Be smart. Thank you for listening to my TED talk.

Unless your project is in China or Taiwan, you’re likely outta luck my friend.

Depends. Are you going to Wuhan? If so yes. One could make the same argument if you’re worried about malaria infection or geopolitical risks. No chance to get out if you’re going to Wisconsin.

I don’t think you’d be justified in declining the whole project, but could be reasonable to refuse travel until things wind down.

If I’m asked to travel to China (not Wuhan, anywhere), I’ll decline. Anywhere else doesn’t have travel restrictions and my passport is valid, so it’s hard to argue against...

Bringing this back up - Endpoints did a really good article today summarizing just how many unknowns there still are - this has the potential to be very serious

How do you politely inform a candidate that the question he is asking is explained clearly in the information you already sent him and he should have already read? This happens to me every day, and I generally just send them the email again and add "It seems you didn't get my first email so I took the liberty to send it again" as a passive aggressive way to tell them to read. How can I handle this more politely?
