Unless it shows up in my area, I don't believe its necessary. If I were to take a plane trip tho, I would definitely wear a mask....all that recycled air and close quarters with who knows what bacteria and viruses from other passengers.
I think this epidemic has been blown out of proportion in the press. I've heard that the mortality rate from SARS is no higher than other flu viruses. The city of Toronto has suffered a huge economic blow by the World Health Org. when they blackballed the area by announcing its a city to avoid.
