    Quantitative risk management. Odds of needing hospitalization are low, odds of both parents needing it are the square of that, which is not zero--could be 0.1%? So you multiply that probability by the cost of it happening and that's how important it is to mitigate it. What's the cost of having kids at home with no plan in that scenario? Not infinite, but pretty big. Dual hospitalizations will happen to people. Contingency planning is not panic.

    My ex said it was a good idea if the kids skipped their visit this week as they all just got back from Florida last week and if anyone has any symptoms etc.


    I said fucking great!

    Thatís fine and a good plan but speaking as someone who hasnít seen my kid (partner hasnít seen hers) in two weeks and now probably two more itís hard. Hang in there and be sure you use FaceTime or whatever to read to them or just hang out. Itís starting to weigh on us.

    My friend who is a mother of four, 36 years old and in good health... went to the emergency room last night because she couldn't breath. So right now her husband is trying to figure out what to do if he has to go in as well (he's a doctor too, so higher chances of catching it). It's a legit concern.

    And even if the hospital isnít needed, this doesnít sound like something you would necessarily will be in any shape to take care of your kids while you have it. Not to mention, who would want to keep their kids around a risky illness? Enough young and healthy people have died from this already, itís seems back up plans are pretty necessary now.

    I understand that the probability is low, but it seems good to have a few loose plans. It also seems good to share oneís plan with nearby peers. Iím sure there will be families in this situation, especially single parents. Secondary related plan is what to do when/if your home excepts children of hospitalized parents. Or do you quarantine them to a room for a certain amount of time to see if they develop symptoms?

    Well, that's the recommendation: sequester infected people to their own room and give them their own bathroom etc if possible. Ouch.

    I think if my (scared) kids were sequestered in a room of my friends or family by themselves for 14 days, three would enter and 2 would exit... most my friends all share rooms as it, ie kids donít have their own rooms.

    Wow! Self serve gas in Oregon! It's a complete breakdown of the societal order!

    I grew up in Oregon, it is no exaggeration that many folks there have no clue how to pump gas.

    Sadly you are right. Although smaller counties have had self-serve for a while.
