Do I need a doctor's note?...I am so scared.
Wed May 05 2021
"Do I need a doctor's note? I mean, I have one, but it's all crumpled up. I was in the E.R. last night until 2AM. This morning I got my COVID-19 test."
"My test came back positive. I'm so scared. I'm trying my best this year. I think I got this at work. Do you still need the note?"
Why do we still ask students for medical notes...in a pandemic? I am not a doctor, and I cannot interpret what a medical doctor writes on a note about my student's personal health information.
One thing I know for sure is: when I am a professor, this will not be on my course syllabus.
