The Owensboro-Daviess County Public Schools, Daviess County Public Schools, and Hanock County Schools just announced they will be closing school Thursday and Friday of this week due to illness and decreased attendance.

Angel here.  I was actually praying and hoping this would happen if I am being totally honest.  Our house has literally been through the mill with sickness.

Poor Tucker was down for 5 days and the school called me over lunch to tell me he wasn't running a fever but teachers were worried about him because he hadn't eaten anything all day long.

No sooner did I get off the phone and bow my head to say "Please Lord help all these babies heal" I get a text from OPS.  Prayer answered.

If you are a parent and will be home with the kids there are tons of things you can do to help the virus from spreading in your home or to others;

Please be safe and make sure to keep the family member who is ill well hydrated and let them rest as much as possible.

If you feel like you might be getting sick get to the doctor immediately.
