4 Reasons Business Travelers Don't Need to Worry About Ebola

limo service pittsburgh, pittsburgh limo, limousine serviceEbola is a terrifying disease, but the majority of business travelers aren't going to need to worry about it. Though Ebola may sound terrifying -- it is often fatal -- it is not easily transmitted. Here are a few of the reasons why business travelers shouldn't worry too much about the threat.

Ebola Is Only Contagious For a Small Window of Time

There is a reason why Ebola, as fatal as it is, hasn't killed us all. It's because the time period between when someone is symptomatic and when the disease gets very, very serious is only two or three days. A patient goes from feeling fine to being extremely ill within 72 hours. And the disease is only contagious when the patient is symptomatic -- so a patient will only be up and around for a small period of time during which they can infect others.

Ebola Needs to be Contracted Through Bodily Fluids

You can't just sneeze on someone and give them Ebola. To get Ebola, you need to be in physical contact with someone's blood, sweat or other bodily fluids. And even sweat and saliva pose a negligible risk -- there's never been a known case of sweat spreading Ebola and saliva tends to break down the disease. So you will probably know if you have come in contact with Ebola.

People With Ebola Are Extremely Noticeable

Ebola causes a variety of symptoms -- fever, dizziness, coughing and other noticeable issues. You will know when you come into contact with someone who has Ebola and, like mentioned, Ebola is only contagious if the person is already experiencing these symptoms. As long as you avoid people who are visibly sick, you will not run into the disease.

Of course, that doesn't mean you shouldn't take action to protect yourself. Cover any cuts, scrapes or other open wounds on your body and make sure that you sanitize your hands throughout your travel. At the first sign of any flu-like symptoms, you should check with your doctor. But contracting Ebola is very rare and isn't something that should worry most people.

From our clients:

Our client changed her flights several times which affected the airport location and pick up time. Regency worked with us last minute and did not charge us for all the changes, we appreciate that! Thanks for the great customer service!
Service and staff have always been exceptional. Highly recommend your business to anyone who asks.
I use Regency 5 or 6 times a year and have always found them courteous and dependable. I'm very pleased with this service.
Whether requests were made by phone or email, follow up and confirmation would come immediately. This communication instilled confidence in the pick up of our guests regardless of where they were going in the city. We have also used Regency as our point of contact for other cities and countries outside the US when executives were traveling and we felt the same confidence that our requests would be fulfilled precisely as we asked.
Your company has changed my life. Getting to and from the airport is wonderful now. You've taken the hassle out of travel. I also have used your service to pick up my children when they're arriving late at night at the airport. I'm completely secure in the fact that your drivers will check for delayed flights and will be there to meet them no matter the time. We've also used your company to book drivers in other cities. We are completely satisfied with your services.
Regency always does an outstanding job! You never fail to meet the high expectations that we have for transporting our customers, or individuals from our Corporate Office.
Booked a limo for my kids and their friends for prom. We got an 8 passenger stretch Lincoln town car which was very nice. The limo was clean and very new looking. The exterior was clean and no blemishes. The driver was very courteous and attentive to details. My kids told me he was an excellent driver; he opened the door for them all the time and treated them like VIP's. Regency has great service, great drivers and in my opinion the most up to date vehicles. Also the pricing is exceptionally reasonable and affordable.
