Shanghai to Okinawa to Seoul to Florida: Our Coronavirus Escape Route

Unraveled Teacher

We flew to Okinawa with a Pack n’ Play and a few sets of beach clothes on January 18th, right at the start of my husband’s two-week Chinese New Year vacation. I remember my husband briefly mentioning something about a virus in China, but it was far from Shanghai so I didn’t think anything of it at the time. Our return flight to Shanghai was scheduled for January 25th, just two days after the news about the lockdowns of Wuhan and surrounding cities hit. On the night of the 24th, we were packing our bags and reading the constant updates about what was happening in China. The lockdowns sounded scary, but it wasn’t affecting Shanghai so we were still on board to fly back.

We didn’t want to go back to China because we just had such a good time in Okinawa- not because we were worried about the coronavirus.
