Covid -19 Update With schools of all levels working on beginning the new school year soon, parents and caregivers should focus on preparedness for the eventuality. Some things to consider: How does your school make water available to the students throughout their day? Do you need water bottles? Is your child packing extra items to stay healthy while at school, such as extra sanitizer and an extra face mask? Does your family have a system in place for each day, before and after school, to check yoru student(s) for symptoms? Is your student(s) aware of proper handwashing and why it is important - for themselves and others? We hope all children are excited to be back in school, in any form! Keep safe and healthy!
DID YOU KNOW. . . According ot the most current data, it does not appear that children are more at risk to contract COVID-19 than adults. There have been some cases of children and infants testing positive for COVID-19, adults have the highst number of cases. A possible relationship between Covid-19 and MIS-C (multisystem inflammatory syndrome) in children is being investigated by the CDC. Many cases of children with MIS-C have had or been in contact with someone who had Covid-19. There is still much to learn about MIS-C, including what causes the potentially serious condition. Keep your children safe by following the sanitizing, including regular handwashing, and preventative practices such as social distancing. As always - keep your family safe and healthy!
Covid 19 Update: Major truck stop chains began requiring masks last month. Travel Centers of America, which includes Petro, TA, and TA Express stations, Loves, and Pilot/Flying J truck stops are now requiring face masks. This is an attempt to help protect customers and employees from potential exposure to the virus. Truck stops are not the only retailers currently requiring masks. Many large chain retailers have safety policies that include wearing masks in their locations, such as Walmart, McDonalds, CVs, and more. Wear your masks --- Remain safe and healthy!

Stay Safe and Healthy!
Covid - 19 Update Did you know. . . A common misconception is why we are required to wear masks. The use of a mask is Not to protect you (the wearer) from others who may have the Corona virus. It is to protect others from you (the wearer) spreading the virus. With the virus having a large portion of asymptomatic (meaning they do not have symptoms of the virus) individuals, many do not realize they have the virus and can spread it to others, especially those at a higher risk, just by talking, singing, shouting, coughing, or sneezing close to another person. Data shows that the virus spreads mainly among those in close distance contact, which means within 6 feet -- masks are especially important in these circumstances. Continue to be Safe and Healthy!
COVID 19 Update Did you know. . . The first case in the United States of an animal testing positive for Covid was a tiger at the New York zoo. A small number of pet cats and dogs have tested positive for the virus. Most of these infected pets were exposed through human contact. Continuing studies on animals and the virus show that smaller pets such as cats, dogs, hamsters and ferrets can become infected and spread ithe virus to their own species. Studies continue to develop information.
