PANDEMIC

March 12, 2020.
On this date I arrived early to lecture. The first question from my students was, "what precautions are you taking against the Pandemic".
I had already decided to suspend lectures that day and announced this in class. I explained my concerns about Pandemic.

Student(s) reported this on Reddit (r/Uwaterloo)
https://cs.uwaterloo.ca/~mannr/Reddit.pdf

After a one week recess I continued to give lectures online (via Google Groups) and course presentations were also given by students.
Mar 24, Mar 26. Online lectures.
Mar 31, Apr 2. Student project presentations (to the class).
Apr 4, 2020. Student project presentations (to me only).

Discussion on Pandemic continued, both in classes, in private chats with students.

Due to my concern, and due to the lack of reliable information, I began my own investigation, both in the scientific literature and the media.  Beginning on May 2, 2020 I reported my findings on the Piazza web page. My intent was to correspond with students, and I made it clear that this discussion had nothing to do with their grades (which were soon awarded). I continued posting until Dec 31, 2020 as new information became available.
