What if I don't? Need advice!
You are either going to be damaged economically for running into Coronavirus rules that exclude those with cough, fever and so on from mixing with anyone in public particularly in situations where many people gather like a school class room or a doctors office etc.
Or you will restart school after 2 weeks on the 30th from day one. You would have lost most of what little you learned so no big deal.
IF you quit school and pout, they will come after you for that tuition they lost on you. Thats when you get your States Atty's office involved. Document this event on paper so you don't forget.
We are entering a new world now. If any one has a cough, fever, with someone such as family who does have these etc in public being screened at the door and they say yes, that person or persons or entire family etc will be excluded and sent to testing for COVID19. If positive then the state health will take over your situation for two weeks under investigation, formal quarantine or monitoring with check calls daily from home (No work, no nothing.)
If you cannot work for two weeks or more because of this process then you file unemployment under that particular cause. The state has been ordered to provide you instantly on the spot a large amount of money for a indefinate future for as long this Virus is still active until a future time later this year or years when it is declared killed in battle against Humans.
UAMS in Arkansas converted a parking garage into Covid19 testing outside. They tested 500+ monday in their cars drive through and another 500 minimum on Tuesday already at last count. This is thursday am.
Last week arkansas had a minimum of 2000 kits on hand. More are being made and shipped by at least 2000 labs around the USA every day. Fake ones are being intercepted at air freight inbound from overseas.
Arkansas count tonight is 37 proven infected, 50 under investigation and 437 or so being monitored from home with check in calls.
1/3 of the 37 is direct contact with patient zero in pine bluff, 1 came here from france. two from india came here. 6 came from infected areas of the USA as travelers and brought it back to Arkansas. Everyone who is family, coworkers or friends in contact with these people (Defined as minimum 10 minutes daily any time previous 2 weeks) is also investigated and tested if need be.
If you are with wife and children at home and you are told to quarantine at home? That means specifically one room only. Apart from everyone. If necessary the state will post armed lawmen or natl gaurd to ensure you do not break quarantine.Last edited: Mar 19, 2020

Jerry Jones says he wants 50,000 in the stands for tomorrow's game against the Washington football team. He said he knows how to handle the virus. He said no one would get the virus from attending the game.
So, i am not worried about the 8 people at our dinner tomorrow.
