Coping with Changing Times- Part II
Email Print RSS Facebook Twitter

By Vice President Chris Schoon
April 25, 2020

Do you have your mask? Gloves?
It is the new normal, for whenever we go out.
If you need to call 911, if able please meet the first responders outside of you home.
They will ask to take your temperature. Be prepared to answer these questions: do you have a fever or cough?
Is the cough productive? Chills? Sore Throat? Any chest pain? Difficulty breathing? Abdominal/stomach pain?
Headache? Have you taken any medications for any of these in the last 24 hours?
Have you been around anyone with the above symptoms? Have you been exposed to anyone diagnosed or suspected of having COVID-19?
Have you traveled outside of the country in the last 2 -3 weeks?
These are now required steps before the EMTs and firefighters start their assessment.
We ask that family follow in their own car. Children may be accompanied by a parent. We want to limit the number of potential exposures.
Remember the rules for your safety, your family’s and neighbors.
When this is over, we will again hug, shake hands and gather together. For now not being together is the Best Medicine.
Thank you to those folks making masks for the first responders. We really appreciate your efforts.

From personal experience this week, take care when working around the yard. Watch for poison ivy, poison oak, and poison sumac.
From the Poison control center:
Poison ivy, poison oak, and poison sumac can cause rashes if someone touches them. The rash is caused by oils in the plants. It may be severe enough to blister and itch for days or weeks. Most cases can be managed at home with household and OTC products. Severe cases require medical attention. If these plants are burned, inhaling the smoke can cause severe breathing problems.
Leaves of three, let them be.
Go to the Poison Prevention website at poison.org for more information and pictures.
