Coronavirus Questions

1. Has the COVID-19 affected your work environment? yes--I am now navigating "Distance Learning" for all of my classes; I have to schedule an appointment to go to school and can have up to 2 hours to work there--then custodians have to sanitize my workspace

2. How are you feeling about the Coronavirus? nervous

3. Has anybody you know been tested / have you? I have two relatives that are choosing to self-quarantine because they both live in cities where there are outbreaks--both are symptom-free, young adults and I applaud their initiative

4. Do you have any friends stuck in any exotic locations? I don't know how exotic Florida is--but I know a few people who are stuck there and the aforementioned relatives in big cities

5. Have you changed any of your personal habits due to the pandemic? no--I've always been a vigilant hand washer

6. What is the craziest thing you've seen or heard about the outbreak? I don't really understand the hoarding (and I have hoarding tendencies)

7. Do you think our politicians are doing enough to curb the crisis? I am impressed with my governor's leadership

8. Have you stockpiled anything because of the crisis? nope

9. What do you think you will miss the most if you are subject to a lock-in? I miss my routine and my students

10. What is the weirdest rumor you've heard about the virus? some fake home remedies

11. Do you have a favorite meme about the virus? mostly memes about parents homeschooling

12. Has the virus made you grateful for anything? I'm trying to stay in the moment and a gratitude practice helps me--these are trying times and I use my blog to vent and to process what's going on and how my profession is changing so rapidly (which is my way of saying that of course I'm grateful to have a job)

13. Have any of your plans been upset by the outbreak? all of them

14. Are you planning to do to anything different because of the COVID-19 outbreak? stay home

15. What do you hope to see in six months time? I hope to be back to school

16. Has the Coronavirus upset your mental health in any way?
isolation is difficult--but having daily check-ins with family and friends is helpful

  1. Daily check-ins are mandatory. Please continue them.

    I live 4 miles from the first case diagnosed in our area. The run on the stores the next day was amazing to see.

  2. I'm liking our governor, too! His steady hand and leadership have been a bright spot in this crisis.

    Daily check ins are important. And so are naps. I'm napping a lot these days.

  3. Of those homeschooling parent memes, my favorite is the one about there being a whole lot of parents out there about to find out it wasn't the teacher.

    I hope we are back to wherever we all were in 6 months, too.

  4. Isolation is not so bad if you keep in touch with everybody.
