Northwest Fungus

If you are traveling to Oregon and Northern California this perhaps is something you need to know. I just came across this in the news:

Deadly airborne fungus in Oregon set to spread - Infectious diseases- msnbc.com

TOO bad they don't indicate what areas of the states are affected - coastal, interior, or eastern desert...

Here is an article with a map. Personally, at this point in time, I would travel to Oregon but be aware of it.
New strain of virulent airborne fungi, unique to Oregon, is set to spread

Thanks for that pointer - looks to be centered in the central valley areas - so we're safe over here in the high desert eastern part - so far...

The couple of articles I read on this earlier in the week indicated that the fungus had been around British Columbia for a couple of years and was moving south. There was also a reference to a lack of freezing weather which was facilitating the spread.

This may be a new strain but like the one in the North. I am not a biologist so gleaning knowledge can be daunting. No freezing weather makes a lot of sense

Do we need rebreather masks or even viral masks? Or do we take the chance that our bodies have an antiviral system in place to conteract this? I really get skeptical about all of these reports and researches. So many of them are based on small/limited studies or even on news network reports which are always accurate. Please keep me posted about this as I plan to be in the western WA area (Olympia/Yelm) in July. kkd
