Sheltering at Home in Illinois

The scale of my family’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic was tipped on March 13th when we opted to keep our children home from school. Ironic or perhaps appropriate that it was Friday the 13th. Later that same day, the school district announced closure for the next several weeks. Now, Illinois is under a “shelter in place” order until April 7th.
