Yeah. Might have probably already had it too but won't know for sure until the antibody tests are improved for accuracy.

If you're under 49 and in good health there's really not much reason to be concerned. CDC estimates that for that group mortality is around .0005. Even lower if you're on the younger end and in good health. Missouri cases out of ~1200 deaths 4 are from 30-39, 3 from 20-29. Start looking at publicly available data and start drawing your own conclusions.

VP2 - I do know several people who have had it and not one of them has any ongoing issues as a result. There’s a wild disparity in how this is affecting people but from what we know right now the experiences of those you know are not the norm.

Nope. Will quarantine in my apartment with minimal outside contact (order groceries and food delivery) and be okay. Read up on viral load; basically as long as you take precautions (I.e. masks, hand washing, social distancing) and reduce contact longer than a minute or two with all but the closest individuals to you, you’ll likely not get it. It takes being in close proximity to another individual with COVID for a good amount of time (10 min or so) in order to have a good chance of getting it, and even then masks will limit it immensely. Recent spikes have been due to people not taking it seriously; those who do will probably be fine.

Had it. Depends where you are. Here in New York, everyone’s been extremely good about it - granted there are one off abuses, I’ve seen plenty of people doing the right thing, even the most unexpected of folks. But man, this country is burning down across 40+ states.

While most teachers are protected by teacher unions, I feel my voice hasn’t been heard at all with my concerns of going back to school next week.

Every other school that I know of in my state is either choosing remote learning to start the year or a hybrid approach, yet that was not an option for us. Are other Catholic schools I. The same boat? Stay safe!
