The outbreaks of SARS in parts of China, including Hong Kong, as well as Taiwan, have prompted the World Health Organization and the Centers for Disease Control to advise travelers to stay away from those areas. In other areas where outbreaks have been brought under control, including Vietnam, Singapore and the Philippines, the WHO has lifted its advisories, and the CDC has downgraded its warning level. Below is a list of key sourcing countries and the organizations’ current travel recommendations:
Canada: The WHO late last month lifted its travel advisory on Toronto, but the CDC maintains a “travel alert,” which does not advise against travel, but recommends that Americans who go there monitor their health closely while in Toronto and for 10 days afterwards. The symptoms of SARS include respiratory difficulties and a fever of 100.4 degrees Fahrenheit or above.
China: The WHO is recommending against travel to Beijing, Guangdong, Inner Mongolia, Shanxi and Tianjin. The CDC has a similar travel advisory in effect and recommends that Americans who do decide to travel there monitor their health closely while in the country and for 10 days after departing. The WHO has lifted its recommendation against travel to Hebei and Jilin, but recommends that departing travelers be screened for signs of the illness.
Hong Kong: The WHO and CDC are recommending against travel to Hong Kong, and the CDC is also recommending that Americans traveling there monitor their health as they would in other affected areas.
Philippines: The WHO has lifted its recommendation against travel to Manila, but still recommends exit screenings.
Singapore: The WHO has also lifted its recommendation against travel to Singapore, but also recommends exit screening.
Taiwan: The WHO and CDC have recommended against travel to Taipei, and noted that the Taiwanese government is imposing a mandatory 10-day quarantine on travelers arriving from China, Hong Kong, Macau, Vietnam, Singapore, and Toronto.
Vietnam: The WHO has declared Hanoi free of SARS and lifted its travel advisories, as has the CDC.

As one of the most recognizable models in the world, Christy Turlington Burns has an insider’s view of the fashion industry and the allegations of sexual harassment swirling around it. “I can say that harassment and mistreatment have always been widely known and tolerated in the industry. The industry is surrounded by predators who thrive on the constant rejection and loneliness so many of us have experiences at some point in our careers,” Turlington told WWD, along with her suggestions for how the modeling world should protect younger women and men.

24-year-old Jean Prounis is redefining the rules of jewelry. Formerly a studio assistant to Jemima Kirke and a design apprentice at Ghuran, she focuses on handcrafted subtleties and ancient goldsmithing techniques. “There was a really sterile feel in the environment and I wanted to have jewelry with character that shapes how you wear it everyday,” Prounis said. Each piece is hand made in New York, either by Prounis or three other jewelers in the district. #wwdfashion
