to steer it back to topic..
Yes it may become pain for people who plan kiting trips and who knows how it's going to pan out, BUT
you always have to see the bright side ;-)
For me, the company I work for greatly relaxed the work-from-home rules for now.
If you have any symptoms, you HAVE to stay home for a few days. And I only have symptoms on windy days :-D
