So Timmy misses school because mommy is scared. Timmy brags to Johnny, so Johnny tells his mommy causing her to become paranoid as well. Johnny tells Jenny, Jenny tells Tammy, etc etc. Eventually nobody is showing up to school, and we're denying EVEN MORE education to these poor children. 10,000+ children miss 1+ week(s) of school over something that won't even efftect 99% of them.

Timmy's mom has good reason to be scared, this could kill Timmy, and the rest of the family. She needs not worry what other parents may or may not do.
As for Johnny, Jenny, Tammy,etc well their parents must decide for theirselves what's best for their children.
Most moms also tell their children, just because your friend jumps off of a bridge doesn't mean you should do it.
One thing that did concern me is the local county Health Director made reference to his certainty that we would have cases of it here in Rochester. Gee, does he know something that he is not sharing.
