So Illinois officially cancelled school for the rest of the year.  It's sad to think I won't be going back until (hopefully) August and probably won't see my students in person until they're fifth-graders.  There are certain aspects of online learning that I enjoy - mainly the fact that I can stay in my pajamas and drink coffee, eat breakfast, and use the bathroom whenever I want to - but otherwise it's all the worst parts of teaching, like planning and constantly communicating with parents, without any of the fun parts.

These kids are missing out on so many fun experiences that happen near the end of the school year that just can't be replicated virtually, and that makes me sad.  At least mine will have two more years at our school, so unless they move over the summer, we'll see each other again next year.  But I feel for the kids who are graduating or moving on to another school next year and may not see their teachers or classmates again.

See I feel so bad for the kids and students on this. And it's why those who aren't taking this seriously are infuriating. Like you're why we're going to be stuck doing this longer!

I sim, basically to torture them. A friend sent me links to some mods though and you can install it so your sims have to deal with a zombie apocalypse (biting and killing zombies included), a possessed child, and a serial killer mod lmao where they can come in randomly and you fight to survive. Or you can be the killer. So ya know, Sims have evolved thanks to tech savvy fans LOL.

OMG... amazing!!  I really haven't played Sims since The Sims 2; I'm sure it's a lot different now.  I'm kind of afraid to get back into it because of what a distraction it would be, but all that sounds awesome.

Of course!  I would want my Sim to be the serial killer... ideally while dressed up as a clown, Gacy-style.  The zombie apocalypse mode and possessed kid sound awesome too!

It's so very different now. You can multitask! lol

I've seen lots of people removing the doors from their Sims' houses so they have to be in quarantine too  Cheesy

What's the difference between ignorance and apathy? ... I don't know, and I don't care.

I've never played Sims, in fact I don't play anything.  But it does sound like fun.

No sign of lockdown being lifted here at the moment, but Wales does have the lowest deaths of the UK and they are falling, so it's looking more promising here.

Our stay at home order just got extended until May 31.  Not surprised.  They are also mandating masks or face coverings in places where social distancing isn't possible, like stores.  On the flip side, they're going to start re-opening some of the state parks and allowing golf and fishing and stuff like that with restrictions (like no more than two people fishing together).

So...I'm sure all of you saw my mayor make national news for being a moron and offering up Vegas as a control group LOL. Thankfully it's not up to her. And no one who lives here is that shocked she wants the Strip open so badly even though she has no say there as it's not technically Vegas, it's an unincorporated part of Clark County. It's all about the money for her, her family has had mob ties for years and they still have investments in the casinos.

Our Governor closed schools for the rest of the year. He hasn't stated when we're reopening yet but he's basically said it won't be until he thinks it's safe on the advice of medical experts. What I think will happen is the state will reopen slowly. Starting up north and in the mining areas. Vegas will be last due to the kind of city we are, and I think the Strip will be the last part to be allowed to open.

Here in Quebec we have 22 thousand cases and our prime minister gonna talk next week about their plans for the school, but the parents will not be obligate to send their kids to school if the school open by the end of the school year.

Our government to open very slowly the regions where they hardly have cases.

What an idiot. I'm glad your governor is handling things well.

You should have seen the comments on the local news' Facebook posts by the idiot Trumpers who live in my area.  I should know by now not to click on the comments because they always make me cringe so hard.  People are pissed that the whole state of Illinois is on lockdown for another month because "All the cases are in Chicago. We don't have any cases here. Why can't Chicago just stay closed and downstate open up?!"  Um, yes we do have cases down here, and we'll have more if people keep denying reality and acting like they're invincible.  I kind of wish some of them would follow their leader's advice and inject themselves with disinfectant, but I don't think most will - not because they're smart enough not to, but because they still don't think the virus is a problem!  I'm still seeing comments that say things like "It's just a flu!" and "Bring it on!  If I get it, it will just make my immune system stronger."  And when these covidiots are presented with facts and firsthand accounts from healthcare workers on the frontlines, they claim it's just a liberal hoax to cause a panic.

I get that some people are just stir-crazy, and others have legitimate reasons to be concerned about money and jobs and whatnot, but they don't seem to understand that saving people's lives is the priority here.  They're more concerned about their rights as a 'Merican.  Jesus, is it really that big of a deal to cover your face when you go into a store?  If you don't like it, stay home!

I know... people are so selfish.  Some won't care until they or one of their loved ones gets it.
