I think answers will vary greatly depending on what's going on in the local communities and what health considerations everyone has. I am fairly young and healthy. Cases are going up here, but hospitalizations aren't much. The odds are on my side that I would have an asymptomatic or mild case if I did get it. Plus I really feel that I'll likely get it anyway at some point before vaccines are available- IF I would even choose to get a brand new vaccine with lots of unknowns. But I think my school is doing everything it reasonably can to keep us healthy. In fact, this is the first year I can remember that I haven't gotten a cold/sinus infection by this point in the year.

We have lost many older subs here. Also some younger subs and regular teachers with health or family concerns. Some retired early and some work remotely (not subs).

I have to look at my individual risk and decide what I'm ok with... remembering that I do exactly that every time I walk out my front door.
