Sorry took so long to get back to you --minor family emergency had to run to.
I think it is more trying to figure how to handle things if the pandemic does happen. I had read one article (can't find it right now) that was
saying that they didn't think this was needed because people stay home when they are sick. My first thought when I read that was "What planet are
you living on"
I am always amazed at the number of people who go to work sick - with fevers, sneezing, coughing, hacking and not covering their mouths or anything.
People in the US (don't know about the rest of the world) seem to take pride in being on their deathbeds and infecting everyone around them but
saying "I didn't stay home -- I came to work when I wasn't feeling well" But not taking into consideration that they are the ones who started the
whole epidemic in their workplace that others are having to stay home because they are now sick.
Ok will get off my soapbox now -- this is a real bone of contention to me and I tend to get passionate about people staying home when they are sick.
