Yosemite Hantavirus

The latest outbreak of Hantavirus that is currently popping up amongst Yosemite visitors is one of the many threats we will face if we are forced to live outside of our home for an extended period of time.

Thankfully, this virus is quite rare and I don't recommend worrying about it when prepping. When planning it can be overwhelming to think of every survival item needed and this outbreak is a great example of how anything can happen when out in the wild. Don't let stories like this damper your motivation.

Keep prepping!
