When it was said that they could not bury the bodies because it was winter, so they piled the dead in a house, did they burn the house then? Or did he mean the bodies were kept in the house until the ground thawed and the dead could be buried?

How would people know if a house had an influenza case or was in quarantine, was there a mark or paper on the house? On a side note, my father remembers his father leaving food and mail in a box at the end of the driveway for hisneighbors.

what happened if you didn't follow the emergency order?

So important that this history is shared so that the public can be reminded that COVID is not the first time communities have been put in lock downs to protect against illness and death. Thank you so much for your excellent presentation.

Yay! Looking forward to reading the book.
Jennifer Wyatt

so the time frame was about a year? It passed very quickly... how did they know when it was "safe" and how long did it take to "get like back to normal"?
