In light of the 2019-2020 outbreak of COVID-19 (coronavirus), many travelers are wrestling with the decision to retain their itineraries or stay home and lose money on expensive international flights. 

As of this writing (March 3), travel is becoming a more perilous prospect, especially for those heading outside of the United States. Even lower-risk, healthy individuals face the possibility of closed borders or quarantines preventing them from returning home.

This is not an easy situation for anyone, including the travel/tourism industry that faces losing millions if not billions of dollars during this crisis. However, airlines should do the right thing and offer refunds (or a free-reschedule option) on international flights booked through at least May 31, 2020, or until COVID-19 has been contained. It's the right thing to do for their customers and for the protection of global health by helping mitigate the spread of this virus.
