Yep. My son's girlfriend is a teacher and found out she was infected on Friday - the day before her birthday. My son rang to cancel the restaurant they had booked for Saturday night and was charged $100 cancellation fee!!Spare a thought for the teachers who are sitting ducks in all of this. You have acted responsibly but if parents kept kids with symptoms at home the problem may not be as bad. Of course some kids are asymptomatic and some parents have no means of keeping kids in isolation while they are at work and even stay at home parents may have problems getting kids to isolate for 7 days. Teachers are in a confined space with 20-40 kids and eventually they will be infected.
But on the bright side at least our teachers are 'just' facing a covid threat.
Instead of discussing the wearing of masks in classrooms, the debate in the US at the moment is whether teachers should be trained to carry guns to protect themselves and their classrooms in case of mass shootings.
