  •  Thanks - incubation period? (0+ / 0-)

    How long from exposure to onset of visible symptoms?  Does anyone know yet?

    •  2-5 days is average (0+ / 0-)

      though some studies suggest as long as 2 weeks. That's because (some say) there is some insistance on poultry exposure and denial of H2H.

      So, figure 2-5 days. Perhaps a day or two longer than the seasonal flu that circulates every year.

        Tell's me how long to quarantine my late arriving relatives at the hidden valley ranch...

        Now, what is the shelf life of good scotch? Have to have my supply priorities.
