Still teaching 8th Grade Social Studies... but now I get to do it in my underwear! We have been teaching through Digital Learning Days since mid March. My last day in the classroom was March 12th, and we are not going back into the classroom this school year.
I think we all know that some people are clueless. People in small rural areas where the healthcare system is not overwhelmed are a good example. They don't know what the new normal is.
My BIL is in a very small, very Ozarky Southern Missouri town that had not had any cases in the County . . . until yesterday one got confirmed.
So, my wife was talking to him, and he was like, "Yeah I was in so-and-so's this morning, and he said the guy that has it has been there a lot. He was sitting inn that chair just the other day." Of course, my wife said, "Well, so-and-so has been exposed, and now you have been exposed, plus everyone you've been around."
He was clueless.
It's not like those college kids partying on the beach, but it's the same thing, being around people who have been around people who have it. It started with one guy walking through Grand Central Station in NYC.
It's our normal time to go back to Missouri from our Florida home, and I check both areas every day. Both are close to hot spots, but not in them.

Lacking any national support, guidance or organization, it's good to see some of the Governors taking charge, and cooperating with others. Excess vents are being flown from California to New York, and Inslee offered a Washington field hospital to wherever needs it more.
Lots of private sector help, too.
