Bumping this topic, because the HantaTents are now open.

Actually, YOSE has done a good job of warning visitors, controlling deer mice, and the concessionaire has replaced the double-wall tents with single-wall.

Article from the LA Times is here.

"Warnings about hantavirus pulmonary syndrome now are printed in the park newspaper give(n) to visitors and in reservation confirmation letters for lodgings. It's causes and preventive measures also are posted on Yosemite's website and inside tent cabins and elsewhere in the park."

"This spring, people are coming to the park just like they did before, but now they're more informed," he said.

So, what, that means now when you stay in Hanta Village you know not to breathe?

Woman sues Delaware North according to KABC-TV.



I've visited all the Channel Islands and also Havasupai, and they do specifically warn about the potential hazard.

Delaware North did not provide warnings, and also built structures that the HantaMice really liked.

Hantavirus is a known but haphazard hazard, sorta like falling rocks, so I think this needs to be kept current.

Fresno woman dies from hantavirus.
