Standish? Sounds more "STANDOFF-ISH" now that they're closed.

Sorry.

The rural schools around here close all the farking time for sickness.

I think it's just because they're so dependent on state/federal money that pays by daily butts in seats that they'd rather close and try again in June rather than have attendance a few percentage points below normal.

I reckon more idiots didn't get the vaccinations when they were available. There's no vaccinations yet for that plague in China which is insidiously leaking out into other countries.

No doctors in these little communities that can administer the flue vaccine? Then again, I check on the price of the vaccination sans insurance and was surprised to find it to be about $59 a shot. Too high for the working poor.

Where the hell did you get that number of $59?

Heh. Maybe one needs to look closer, or from a different perspective. I've done almost thirty years in the, hands-on, medical field. I can say with confidence that I've never caught, nor transferred a "bug" to another.

If a person is so concerned that they might post scary words on what's become a social media site... Maybe just wash your hands a little more often, and relax.

Que sera, sera...
