Well, I'm a kidney transplant candidate. Should happen this year, but I have been told firmly by my doctors that I should not plan to return to school afterwards until COVID is no longer a threat. I'm fortunate for now that my school district plans to continue distance learning through this first semester (different state), but after that I plant to look into disability coverage and/or unemployment. If you aren't able to work because of a health issue, you should be entitled to your benefits. |
Regardless, I believe you are going to see schools shutting down. I once worked in an elementary school that saw such quick spread of the seasonal flu that at one point 1/3 of the teachers and students were out. The local health department ordered the school shut down for a week for everyone to heal and to slow the spread. This was years before COVID, a disease more contagious and more serious than seasonal flu. People do not realize what is coming.
