Our school system sent an email suggesting that parents read this article; it hits the nail on the head: “Social Distancing: This is Not a Snow Day”  by Asaf Bitton, MD, MPH. Our schools closed as of yestrday at 3pm and my kids asked if they could have friends over after school. I said they could ride bikes together outside and reminded them they have to keep their distance from eachother. I said no one could come inside. I got a lot of eye-rolling for this and was told I was the only mom with a rule like this. My teen said I was overreacting. Things have changed quickly and dramatically in just the span of 2 days. Read the article if you’re considering socializing at all. Hunker down, home school and try not to make eachother crazy. I’m going with Dr Bitton’s advice, eye-rolling or not., MD, MPH, is the executive director of Ariadne Labs in Boston, MA.
