Iím a teacher & coach in OK.
All schools are shut down until April 6. Absolutely no instruction. Whether or not we stay out will be determined later but Iím not seeing us back in school anytime soon. We may very well be out indefinitely. Pretty sure the district is working on alternative learning plans.
Weíll see.

I've got a freshman and junior in high school, and they both just started an e-learning module from their school. They'll be e-learning this week, followed by their normally scheduled spring break week, followed by another week of e-learning. Based on some discussions I've had with their teachers and other parents that we know, most believe that their school will continue with e-learning for the rest of the school year.  One thing is clear though: no one has much confidence in whether e-learning will be successful in effectively transmitting knowledge from teacher to student. Illinois, like all states, has minimum education requirements in order to move from one grade to the next. People are concerned about whether their kids will be able to understand the material being taught in this manner well enough for them to pass mid-terms or finals this semester (in whatever form those exams take shape). Hopefully, the kids will adapt well and our educators and administrators will make wise decisions.

I do IT for NASA. The whole Center is 100% telework right now. I'm trying to work from home with a 3 and 5 year old. Fun times! All schools are closed. No eat-in at bars or restaurants. Grocery stores are empty. Good to know farmers and a butcher.

@Dc_smoke309 THANK YOU for all your hard work during this time.  I've only been to the grocery once in the last week, but I made sure to thank the shelf stockers and cashiers for their hard work and quite honestly, sacrifice.

Appreciate that a lot. Most people are understanding . But some people are just straight up mean. Takes a lot to keep the lips sealed . Lol I have three kids so I know how ppl feel when there is nothing to buy. So we try and work our butts off to make people feel a little more ď normal ď.  People need to STAY HOME unless they actually need something .

I hope all of you and your loved ones stay safe... hopefully this will all be over soon.

Similar situation here. IT for a large Insurance and Financial Services company. We went work from home company wide. Itís tough with a 4,2, and 0 year old in the house. Take out only, no sit down restaurants or bars. Store shelves are bare and our gun stores have been packed full of people. Strange times.

We have two young kids & another one due in about a month.  The kids were coughing for a couple days late last week, early this week, which makes you wonder in the back of your mind.  Yesterday, I started coughing & googled "dry cough" as I heard that was one of the symptoms, but I didn't know what exactly it meant.  I've never been so damn happy to have phlegm in my throat when coughing as when I looked up what dry cough meant (I was guessing it involved a lack of mucus, but wasn't 100% certain). 

The wife had a doctor's appointment last week & her doctor's office is located inside Rush Oak Park Hospital, where 2 ER doctors & a patient were recently diagnosed.  The hospital is a small hospital, so it was a bit concerning, but my wife was an ICU nurse & decided to go, but to take some precautions.  Since everything looks fine, the doctor suggested they skip the last appointment before delivery to reduce risk of exposure. 

She is planning on delivering at Rush (downtown), which is a HUGE hospital.  She is more impressed with that hospital than a lot of others in the area, including one near us (Advocate Lutheran General) that is generally well thought of.  Even if Rush winds up with quite a few cases, one nice thing is that there is a way to get to the labor & delivery floor from the parking garage where you don't go through the rest of the hospital. 

My first job (other than cutting lawns, etc) was when I was 14 at a mom & pop Pizza Place.  I took hand washing very seriously and have washed my hands more than most people (especially when cooking).  At one point, I was a actually bit worried that I might become obsessive about it, so tried dialing it back a bit.  Because my wife was an ICU nurse, she has always taken hand washing seriously.  Still a bit worried in the back of my mind over having her due next month.  My biggest concern is if hospitals just get overwhelmed.  Can't believe the CDC is suggesting "improvised" masks (like a bandanna or a scarf) is fine for a health care worker if supplies run out.  I can understand people having to improvise, but for the CDC to suggest that is fine is a bit unnerving as it indicates how bad things already are around the country with respect to supplies.

Hal
