A couple of things on a lighter note:

Another option is to take a screenshot and then scan the resulting image with the Baidu Fanyi translation app.

And this is good - a parody of Natalie Imbruglia's "Torn" with a coronavirus theme:

Weigh the costs and benefits before going into any place that requires an entry/exit scan, especially high-traffic locations like Walmart/Carrefour. Think of the potential consequences if the app's central database records that someone found to be sick within the next couple of weeks was also in that place around the same time as you.

@cosimo: I think a lot of the critical feedback others have given above is appropriate and correct for most people.

However, if you're the type who enjoys weeks-long back-country hiking treks, including camping or sleeping in trailside huts, then teaching in a rural area may actually be just the thing for you.

By upper 60's, I mean in the range of 66 to 69 ( ~19 to 20 C)

It was 66 last Friday and I went out in a short-sleeved shirt with no extra layers. It felt warm to me, but then I prefer temperatures on the cool side, so your mileage may vary.

Further to AlPage48's suggestion, check out AirBnB and Ctrip - some of the prices are really low right now, presumably because of the coronavirus. You could probably get a decent place for under 500 RMB per week as a stopgap.

"Pain campagnard" (or more commonly "pain de campagne") is a specific name used by bakeries in France for a particular type of bread. Just calling something "country bread" in English could mean anything.
