The only people who need to be tested are health care workers, the elderly, and those with underlying health conditions.  If you are young (under 50) and healthy and are taking up a test kit, crowding

This country is being bright to its knees by fear....not the virus. Recovery from getting the virus is a couple weeks. Recovery of society from this hysteria will be years.

It’s sad that about half the country still believes outlets like msnbc and cnn.  You would think after they lied everyday for 3 years about Russian collusion, people would get the hint of what their t

As of noon today......647 total cases in the US.

Cancel Easter.

Six hours later, it's more than 1,000 positive tests. It's amazing what having access to tests actually does to the number of infected patients. 

If we don't have tests, we can't have official cases.

The Blue pill is easy to swallow and even comes in a candy flavored chewable and no thought is required.

CC just cancelled on campus classes through at least April 15th

https://www.denverpost.com/2020/03/10/colorado-college-online-education-coronavirus/

“Students should plan to remain off campus from Spring Break through at least the end of Block 7, and possibly the rest of the academic year,” university officials wrote. “Students, when you leave for Spring Break, please take your essential belongings — including medications and items needed for study — with you now. You may wish to take all of your belongings.”

Hopefully they let the team travel to North Dakota.

Schloss retweeted something last night about Zac Brown Band cancelling its Detroit show and the Little Caesar's Arena people telling employees to expect more cancellations.  Not exactly great news for the Frozen Four.  Although the no fans thing would still be an option in the case of a hockey game (no sense in playing a concert to no fans)

Michigan had its first two confirmed cases yesterday and both are considered metro Detroit, as reported by local news sources post-news conference with their governor. If there are implications for the Red Wings game at Little Caesars on April 4th, which might not be determined for weeks, many would think the same of the Frozen Four. It'll be interesting to watch this develop.

Dan Wolken of USA Today wrote an article that the NCAA needs to cancel March Madness.

Is Kermit Dan Wolken???

Morning Professor!

I don't really have time to engage in the circular debates and reading comprehension exercises today, so in the immortal words of crusty golfers everywhere "Keep your mouth off my ball!"

And also, of course, and always: WASH YOUR HANDS, AND GO SIOUX!!! I'd like to hope it doesn't get any worse than playing the games in front of empty rinks, but I'll let the experts in epidemiology and emergency management make those decisions.

Most nursing homes and even hospitals will deter visitors from seeing people in their institutions this time of year because of infectious diseases like the common cold, influenza, and others. Does everyone have enough toliet paper at home to make it till summer? Might need to use stock certificates instead of the JC Penney catalog when the toliet paper runs out.....

AHCA, CMS put out guidance for assisted living and nursing homes yesterday in regards to visitors and activities.   Most outside visitors are being discouraged or limited for the foreseeable future.
