Dweezil’s college, like many others, tweaked their schedule so everyone would be done by Thanksgiving. Some kids might need to go back after that for finals (not sure whether this applies to Dweezil or not).
He comes home the Tuesday before Thanksgiving. All students need to be out of the dorms / apartments by 6 PM that day though I suspect he’ll be here sooner since his one class lets out noonish.
I asked him to look into “exit testing” - which is something a lot of colleges are doing. Now, his school is smaller than many - about 5800 students overall - and they’ve only had 100 confirmed cases all semester; he lives in an apartment with his own bedroom (though, shared bathroom and kitchen). Supposedly kids are being careful; the campus has a mask mandate, and he only has 3 classes, so his risk of exposure is lower than many.
Still, I’d feel better if he got tested. Dunno how long it would take to get results.
We’re modifying our Thanksgiving routine somewhat: scaling down on the number of dishes, leaning toward more “do in advance” so there’s less kitchen crowding, and similar stuff - and Dweezil will be STRONGLY encouraged to stay in his room except for the actual meal. He’s a bit antisocial so this won’t be a huge issue, LOL.
Anyone else with a kid heading home soon? What if anything are you doing about it?
