In a recent email, preschool teacher Dawn Michaels reassured parents that her school was being extra careful to sanitize blocks before letting kids suck on them. “I understand that parents may be concerned about their child contracting COVID-19 in the classroom, especially given all of the shared surfaces in our learning environment,” said Michaels, meticulously spritzing blocks with disinfectant just moments before they headed straight into the mouth of a four-year-old. “That’s why we will sanitize every single block before letting your children slobber all over them. Colorful cardboard blocks, big Lego bricks, Lincoln Logs — they’ll all be carefully wiped down before we let our students gnaw on them all afternoon.” At press time, Michaels was reassuring parents that children would only be allowed to pick their nose after washing their hands for 20 seconds.
