Great opinion piece with lots of facts, thanks. Even though it’s about play dates, I think it speaks to all of us. I particularly focused on this:
Quote:
That means COVID-19 can be found in the air for 8 hours, and on surfaces for 45 hours!

So again, back to playdates…

All of this basically means that in order to not have this sneaky, easily caught, deadly enough virus spread to 70% of the population, we need to spend time with our own germs and only our own germs.

I agree as well and looking at what Spain has done this morning I do hope more Americans pay attention to facts as they play out in real time.

so susceptible here in the US. We are so used to doing and getting our way with things. This is not something that can be negotiated with. We cannot make deals with a virus.

Some parents have the attitude that since there is no school, they will "entertain" their kids with outside stuff and day trips.

I just saw a story on the news tonight that showed a family in Arkansas with closed schools. The dad was a HS teacher who was doing online learning with his students and the
"homeschooling" part for his little kids at home. He talked about Cabin Fever and said "maybe Tuesday or Wednesday, we will get out and try a movie or the local trampoline park."

Good grief~ He has definitely missed the point.
