Y'all...my school (we're in the Chicagoland area) sent out a letter to parents about this.  Didn't consult me...didn't note that IL Dept of Public Health says there's no immediate threat to the public and no additional precautions need to be taken in schools.  Then decided to require middle school homeroom teachers to tell the middle school kids about it today.  Kid with a stuffy nose comes down to see me "my teacher says I needed to see you because I might have coronavirus."   LET THE PANIC BEGIN!

It is like when my 8th graders learned about Ebola. It was never ending. It was so bad that the teachers tried to make it better by teaching about it (and it was accurate info) but doing so just made it worse.
