Like fractured mentioned, there better be masks and sanitizer used by everyone.

I'll go back if they decide to open. Middle and high school only. With a mask on.

I'm not fully optimistic...

And I don't plan on filling any out until it's confirmed that schools will be reopening in the fall.

I may be in the same boat.

I've been subbing for years but not sure if/when schools will even open their doors again.

I admire you retirees so much. You folks have many "battle wound" stories from your career.

Thank...

I received my stimulus check via direct deposit.

YES. Be careful with all medicine that's not prescribed by a physician.

If the potential side effects seem too risky - stay away!

Let my story be a cautionary tale for all.

Sadly, you're not far off with that assessment.

What we're seeing is history repeating itself, and not in a good way.

Exactly. What are we supposed to do to make money during this virus lockdown?

I'm out of work for five weeks with no pay.

Subs get screwed every time.

If things escalate further (seriously hope not) maybe even later.
