“I think the response has been appropriate. What else are you really going to do? You have to do something, but you can’t walk everybody around…

Worrying doesn’t change whether or not you get it. ”

“Because agencies have warned about it, I think they’re pretty prepared for what’s going to happen.

On campus, I think the word is out, the e-mail was appropriate, and the hand sanitizers are OK. I would like to see them take more steps on it, like cleaning the things that people touch every day — keyboards in the labs, desks, railings…”
