    I thought that elementary schools were going to be activated as pseudo-daycares for emergency personnel in MN with teachers being the care providers.

    My kid isn't old enough yet so I don't know how it's working. I just know from talking to my daycare clients parents are scrambling and it's a big ol CF.

    Might be worth a call to your local hospital or clinic to see if they are also looking for these.

    It's amazing how many Americans don't donate blood.

    Ever know someone get cancer, have a surgery, have a baby, get in a car accident? Oh you have? ******* donate blood.

    There's a ton of red tape an regulations involved when a business attempts to set up an in house daycare for their employees. Government needs to help instead of hinder companies that try to do this.

    I question using the schools. Nice to let them clear out and be thoroughly disinfected. Maybe use a couple rooms that they can section off for a couple weeks after that use to avoid those issues.

    Mayo has daycares already. This isn't some new market they're going to price gouge everyone with.
