Travelling to the US from Thailand through the Pacific route. Many will be/have been. Any advice would be appreciated. There are many optional routes: Hong Kong, Taiwan, Korea, Japan and even China. Any recommended precautions during this period of the corona virus?

If your whole concern is the corona virus definitely bypass China and Hong Kong if traveling prior to June, if
June or later l don't think any city should be bypassed

I doubt this pandemic will be over by June. I suspect if you're travelling from June that by then simply coming from Thailand means you'll be required to quarantine yourself on arrival in the US for 14 or more days.

Will be flying out on February 27th via Taiwan on Eva airlines and coming back on March 16th. Hope you are wrong GT93, that would suck.

Just read on Eva airlines page that they are not allowing anyone that has been in China, Hong Kong, and Macau to transfer through or enter Taiwan at Taipei airport. So that is a positive.

Depends on your US destination Gus.
I go to Dallas so the best route for me is Korean Airlines via Seoul Korea. Straight shot to Korea, 2 hour layover and then straight to DFW.

Not many options out of Houston. Eva hands down the shortest flight time, to and from. Love Singapore, flew them exclusively before Eva started here, just too damn long of a flight.
