Don’t have much choice in the matter since we want to get home in a couple of weeks. [emoticon]

Everywhere they are closing schools for 2 weeks or more.

Teachers should set up school classes on the LOCAL TV channels, or PBS, so kids can still learn during this virus shut down.

Everybody has a television, or 2, or 3 of them. Teachers can at least do 1/2 hour classes in math, reading, science, etc.

Pre-record and they can tune in 24/7.

Give the kids homework, and it will keep them busy while off school.

Get a schedule of classes posted.

Governor's and schools need to get this set up.

Why panic? Can't we all be extra cautious for a few months? By then, it will have gone away or a vaccine developed.

Someone posted on FB to support your local restaurants by buying Gift Certificates, to keep revenue going, that you can use later.

Great idea.

Many schools already have some form of online learning. Problem is in rural areas where not everyone has access to the internet. I know the town I live in has limited internet outside of town. But the library has it. Mcdonalds has it but with limits on dining in may not be open, or just war chalk someplace that has an open wifi.

Our Gov. has now stated that all bars (ouch) and restaurants in Washington state will close. Just don't know when yet.

ScottG, it is tonight at midnight. Wife and I are going out to eat. We will make a point of ordering out to help them. I liked the idea about purchasing gift certificates.

Personally I am glad that our Governor is stepping up to help contain this a bit. All you need to do is look at Italy to see what happens when you let this run its normal course. And, by the way, Italy has more hospital beds per capita than the U.S. Now they are swamped and that uncle of yours who is having a heart attack can't get in for help. Lined up out the door with Covid-19 patients. Pretty ugly scene. Again, glad that our "snake" of a Governor is showing some leadership.

Steve Mnuchin should be looking at UMEMPLOYMENT INSURANCE as a "temporary" solution to sick pay for those who are truly sick with COVID-19. This is not a permanent solution and should only apply to COVID-19.

With record low unemployment, thousands more have paid into the program and should be plenty of funds. Not everybody is sick.

These workers have alrady paid in to that benefit! Let them tap into it, it is their money.

No more billion dollar bail out bills or making employers pay these costs.

What about the employees who did have "sick time" and use it the minute they earn it and were not sick? We all know people who do this.

That is not fair to those who saved their sick days for when they need it and will now be using their time up. So the ones who had the days and used it for no reason now get a free paycheck? That is not fair.
