    What is the youngest death for this pandemic so far?  Cancelling all classes and athletic events for the rest of the year?  Seriously?  Stupid.

    Stupid and unnecessary.  Certainly so as long as businesses continue to operate, and the grade schools are still running.

    Some sort of lockdown in a town in NY. No one allowed in or out.

    Let's just enact martial law nationwide and get it over with.

    I'm not overly concerned about my health, nor my husband's or anyone in my close social circle that I see a lot. We're young, healthy, have health insurance, and I'm even more fortunate because I already work remotely. Not everyone is so lucky. 

    I AM worried about people like my mother, who has COPD, and other elderly and immunocompromised people. I worry about what will happen if it continues spread and we run out of hospital beds. I don't think it's stupid to do everything we can to stop that spread.

    i know you're saying grade schools bc parents need to work.. but if you're focusing on transmission, grade schools cant stay open. They're petri dishes.

    That's my point.  Healthy people self-quarantining doesn't do shit.  It's all or nothing - quarantines have to be mandated by the govt.

    Closing your doors accomplishes nothing if those people don't self-quarantine and stay home.  This thing supposedly survives on surfaces for up to 9 days.  I don't think you're changing the risk profile canceling events and large groups.  All you really need is for grocery stores to stay open...

    I'll give anyone a bottle of hand sanitizer for five rolls of toilet paper.

    The TP hoarding is insane.

    My local .99 store across the street from my apartment is well stocked....for now.

    Buy it all and wait for panic buying. Make a huge profit.

    No one wants to wipe their ass with gold bullion.  Does anyone know where I can score some Charmin?

    This is the one that makes no sense. These kids are going to be drinking and spreading more germs then they would if they were in class.

    You still have class and tests. It's just not in person.

    I get that, I just don't see how is stops anything from spreading. Wipe the desks down after class and have hand sanitizer in the rooms. The kids aren't going to quarantine themselves all day, they'll still be doing the extracurriculars with each other. Same reason they have mumps outbreaks and shit, it isn't from spreading it in class.

    well if you have 50 kids in a room in close proximity, droplets are a big issue.

    If I read one more god damn “I woke up with a cough and runny nose should I go get tested” post on twitter or Reddit. That coronavirus daily Reddit thread is torture to read.

    My campus has banned school-sponsored out-of-state travel and canceled all out-of-state speakers' seminars.

    We've been prepping to take classes online for about 2 weeks and I expect that will happen soon.
