"A Fort Lauderdale school librarian did not come to work Monday because parents were afraid she could transmit the virus for severe acute respiratory syndrome, or SARS, to their children."
"Gayle Grossman does not appear to be sick, but she did recently travel to China, which is where SARS is thought to have originated. Grossman works at Bayview Elementary, but she won't be at work for the next 10 days, which is the recommended quarantine period."
"Grossman made the decision to use her remaining sick and vacation days after several parents said they would keep their kids out of school if she returned." (from Yahoo News)
