covid / school
apparently about 1/8 of the students at our elementary school were out sick yesterday. 6 confirmed student cases, 4 staff cases, and dozens of kids home sick with no word on whether it's covid (including ours ofc).
last i looked, the case rate and the positive test rate are both still climbing here. maybe if we really do get dumped on by this storm, it'll pump the brakes.

Seems like it must be a flu, I guess. But the kids are both still home until String Bean's PCR test comes back ugh
