“Right now, I do have lots of my clients traveling to these areas,” said Malone. “I’m not too concerned about it because I’m aware of what they’re doing and where they’re going, and these warnings don’t affect them.”
On the off chance that you are traveling out to any of these zones for spring break, Malone does recommend registering your travel with the U.S. State Department.
