My sister (not a teacher) was told a few weeks ago she will be WFH at least till January.

It probably hasn't even occurred to the others. I know people that and It's not being stingy or malicious, they are just self absorbed.

Most kids in my school are fairly privileged and I feel like 3rd/4th grade is the time they get clued in, by 4th grade for sure. Even in second grade there are a few skeptics.

Maybe don't break...

The problem with public bathrooms is droplets lingering in the air after flushing. So, while washing hands well, and using sanitizer is important, it is still a risk.

I'd double check the camping grounds to make sure bathrooms are actually open, first. (I've seen news articles about grounds in some parks keeping them closed.)

Agree with 1956BD.
You should feel free to choose to go or not to go to the gym without needing his approval....It is worrying that you feel you can't be honest about your (perfectly valid) choice.
