Paid off how?  They've lost more people and have no better economic news than the other Scandinavian countries.  What's the upside?

EDIT: A guick Google search reveals stories from the last couple of weeks that are encouraging for Sweden, but don't seem particularly applicable to the USA.  

87% of the population is complying with social-distancing rules, for one thing.
Shhh, this is to be swept under the rug.

What do you think about online teaching? Not like whether it's good or bad but what do you like and dislike? I'm trying to be more organized about it this fall but would like a teacher's thoughts on what they prefer/hate.
It's frustrating on the teacher's side because of how limiting it is for us.  Now, if I was an active youtuber or computer programmer or had experience with green screens, program integration, or time to explore these things, maybe I could be as good an online teacher as I am in person.

I want to be amazing, and I am not amazing online.  We got a new reading program this year, and we were virtually trained on it on Tuesday.  School starts tomorrow and I've had an avalanche of stuff to do in the meantime.  How am I going to utilize all the reading program has to offer?  

The younger students' ability to do anything with online learning is nearly 100% related to how involved their parents plan on being.  Hell, I don't know what % of our households even have internet.  I sent out a class email and a quarter of them bounced back.  Understand - that's using the emails they provided us, and a quarter bounced back.

And there's a limit on how fun we can make it.  To me, fun = engagement, and while I can make my presentations and interactions fun in a vacuum, I'm no competition for the video games and active play they have at home.

Not trying to be a dick, and you will likely blast me- but here goes. 
Now that I have seen the evidence, and experimented with it a little, whenever I see “ google search” on any topic that could be or has been politicized, ( like covid) I take it with a skeptical grain of salt.  Google buries or eliminates a shit ton of material that does not match their very liberal set of narratives.

I can totally sympathize with this take.  It makes sense to me.

What would you do, if anything?

As you know my woman is sick, very possibly covid 19.   She still can’t stomach much solid food, but has been drinking smoothies pretty well. 

She asked me( just a while ago) to run up to the McDonalds drive thru to get her a couple strawberry banana smoothies

After I placed my order I went to first window and paid. Went to the second window, and looked in and saw a very overweight young man making the smoothies.  His mask was pulled down around his neck, not covering any part of his face. He was standing RIGHT OVER the pitcher and cups.  

What would you do?

Correct. No McDonald's for me, ever again. Now that I know how to make Big Mac sauce, it's all good.

Wipe off the outside of the drinks and wash your hands.  This virus isn't transmitted by ingestion.

Thanks.  And bonus for actually answering my question.  

I was wondering if anyone would advocate saying something to the employee?

It's not Google directly.  It's Google's algorithms directing us to what we have proven we like.
But I take your point.
In my simple search, I tried to pick the ones most favorable to Sweden's actions.  There were others saying things like "Swedes paying the price," etc.

I would have refused to pay and gone elsewhere.
