Sure, it’s all fun and games – until swine flu decimates the ranks of the booth babes.
Joystiq reports that the ESA does not expect the swine flu bug to impact E3. The video game industry’s big dance kicks off next month in Los Angeles.
ESA P.R. guy Dan Hewitt told the ‘stiq:
The 2009 E3 Expo is progressing as planned. Public health officials are taking all appropriate steps and we continue to follow their direction on all measures. We look forward to a great event, and to seeing you in Los Angeles in June.
GP: This, of course, could change should swine flu turn pandemic…
UPDATE: …which it apparently is close to doing as the World Health Organization has raised the pandemic alert level to 5 on its 6-point scale.
How are those contingency plans going, Dan?
