So this morning i discovered that a student i teach is showing symptoms of Coronavirus and that i handled her water bottle, and touched her skin directly (to feel for a pulse) when she fainted on friday, i feel i cannot with good conscience continue to teach face to face with students until the student is diagnosed one way or another, but it seems she will not be tested unless admitted to hospital.
As a side note she is often ill, so clearly has a poor immune system.
111 advise that no action is needed on my part, coming from a Government who seem to want us to all be infected to gain "herd Immunity' i'm not surprised, ethically i don't feel comfortable taking their advice until we know more about the students condition, i am going to WFH until this becomes clearer.
Anyone know what position this puts me in? i'm available remotely, but just working from home..
