Quote from above blog:
Her: “Joy! Do you have the H1?”
Me: “What are you talking about?”
Her: “The pig virus, do you have any symptoms?”
Me: “No.” (serious and confused look)
Her: “Somebody is asking, there are some cases.”
And she proceeded to tell them something on the phone and then we continued class.
The above teacher has nothing, nothing at all to do with any of the people in quarantine. They don’t work at the same school, they have never met any of us, for all I know they are not even in the same city as any of the teacher’s from the quarantine.
When I thought there was an overreation to our group being rounded up and bused back to a central quarantine, I have a feeling it will be nothing compared to the discrimination that is coming. One thing that has been pointed out over and over is that his could have happened anywhere. We have yet to see if taking care of patients and potential patients is going to be done with education, or with discrimination and fear.
I think teachers who run into this kind of situation should post about it so that we know how far reaching it is really getting. Those of us in quarantine really only know what is happening in here. A couple of people have blogged or e-mailed to me that they are seriously reconsidering taking visits to the states or Canada because of complications getting back in. Hopefully because of the precations taken with our group, it won’t affect the rest of the instructors around the country like that.
