  1. Lots of info at this link and well worth the read. https://abcnews.go.com/amp/US/coronavirus-live-updates-us-army-sending-medical-task/story?id=71728975 Houston is at 105% Hospital Capacity. US Army sending medical task force to HoustonUrban Area Medical Task Force from the U.S. Department of Defense that will arrive on Monday and a Disaster Medical Assistance Team from U.S. Health and Human Services that has just been deployed.

  2. Y’all this is disturbing https://www.palmbeachpost.com/news/20200707/lsquothings-are-not-getting-better--they-are-getting-worsersquo-fire-chief-says Palm Beach County children are showing long-term lung damage from COVID-19, two firefighters are in intensive care and hospital admissions, along with cases, are spiking, two top county officials said Tuesday, painting a grim picture of the continuing toll of pandemic. “Certainly, all indications are things are not getting better, they are not getting steady, they are getting worse,” Palm Beach County Fire Rescue Chief Reginald Duren told county commissioners, adding that 109 firefighters are in quarantine. “It’s not just because we’re testing more people,” she said. The rate shows the extent to which the virus is present in communities across the state, she said. “When we take X-rays of kids, even if they don’t have symptoms, there are changes in the lungs,” Alonso said. “We have no idea what the long-term damage will look like.” Further, one 2-year-old boy in the county has been diagnosed with multisystem inflammatory syndrome, a potentially fatal disease. Two 17-year-olds and a child under the age of 14 have died elsewhere in the state, health officials reported. Data shows that the virus is continuing to attack children. An eye-popping 29 percent of the 1,083 children under the age of 18 who have been tested in the county learned they have the disease, the health department reported. While the number of kids who have been tested is low, the increasing number of positive tests is cause for concern, Alonso said. “That’s a significant number of children who will have consquences down the pike,” she said.
  3. https://www.statesman.com/news/20200707/austin-convention-center-being-prepped-as-field-hospital-for-coronavirus-patients As coronavirus cases spike across Central Texas and the rest of the state, local officials said they are preparing the Austin Convention Center as a field hospital for 1,500 coronavirus patients. The site will be ready to be opened on July 20, said former Travis County Judge Sarah Eckhardt, now a special assistant to Judge Sam Biscoe on the county’s COVID-19 response. “We will not open it on the 20th if we don’t need it,” Eckhardt said. “We want to have it ready by July 20 but whether or not we open is going to depend on whether the hospitals can continue to absorb all the patients, which is far preferable.”
  4. I have seen numerous stories of people getting it twice. I will see if I can find some info. Things seemed to be settling down here some but now the numbers are going up a good bit. Of course I’m sure it has nothing to do with having 5000+ people packed into Jackson Square a couple weeks ago
  5. Governor Abbott in TX signed executive order requiring face mask to be worn in public. I believe it is in any county with more than 20 cases https://open.texas.gov/uploads/files/organization/opentexas/EO-GA-29-use-of-face-coverings-during-COVID-19-IMAGE-07-02-2020.pdf
  6. Students in Alabama organized Covid parties and took bets on who would get infected. Are you kidding me???? I’m here to tell ya...I don’t care how grown my kids THINK they are....if they do something stupid like this they will deal with me. UNREAL!!!! https://time.com/5862571/alabama-coronavirus-parties/ TUSCALOOSA, Ala.) — Several college students in an Alabama city organized “COVID-19” parties as a contest to see who would get the virus first, officials said. Tuscaloosa City Councilor Sonya McKinstry said students hosted the parties to intentionally infect each other with the new coronavirus, news outlets reported. McKinstry said party organizers purposely invited guests who tested positive for COVID-19. She said the students put money in a pot and whoever got COVID first would get the cash.
  7. Glad your feeling better Mt Rider. With my work schedule I’m not getting much done here. In dead tired when I get in so I’m planning for the weekend. I went to Walmart and bought some food storage containers. Was also looking for other items that got lost when we moved like loaf pans and my tea pot broke the other day. Y’all there are so many holes on the shelves. I couldn’t find 1/2 of what I went in there for and these are basic things. I haven’t shopped much bc there was no need....now I need and can’t find so I’m making a list and ordering everything online.
  8. I just made a run to Walmart and it is getting thinner and thinner. I had not been in housewares much. Now that I need stuff there’s not a lot available. I got the last 2 loaf pans...still can’t find a teapot to replace my broken one. No food saver either...just bags. I did grab these plastic containers to store dry goods in bc I couldn’t find any large glass jars. Do you think they will work? I’m thinking anything will be better than bags and boxes. Everything will be in my pantry inside and of course dark. I thought of putting some kind of absorbent packets in there If it would help.
  9. Since it has been so long a lot of my memory is fuzzy and I think I’ve lost a lot of knowledge. Aging is the devil...LoL. So if it’s ok with y’all I’d like to post them as they come to me here on this thread. 1) I have several, several 1-2lb bags of sugar, lg bag of rice, instant potatoes etc etc....I was considering getting large plastic food storage containers to store them. Would that be safe or would it be better to keep in the original container? My other thought was using a food saver to seal them IF I can find one. 2) is there a way to preserve or put up potatoes? I have more questions Than know but these are at the forefront of my mind as I get ready for Church. First time I’ve been back in person...so excited!
  10. Reports of hour long wait times in transferring patients from ambulance to hospital https://www.khou.com/mobile/article/news/health/coronavirus/houston-paramedics-report-hour-long-wait-times-to-transfer-patients-from-ambulance-to-hospital/285-8da201af-b157-4072-a5d6-52bf3838bd79 HOUSTON — Paramedics are running into often hour-long wait times when transferring patients from an ambulance to a hospital, Houston Fire Chief Sam Peña said Thursday. Peña said the department has been receiving a 20 percent higher call volume over the last three weeks, and that when paramedics arrive at the hospital with patients, the time it takes to get the person into the hospital is taking double or triple the normal amount of time. “The longer it takes us to service those critical calls, it is going to cost us in lives," Peña said. “Our system is getting strained.” He said at least 560 calls for service resulted in hour-long wait times or longer within the past three weeks, straining a department that is already short-handed by about 300 firefighters, with another 241 "out of service" due to either quarantine or positive COVID-19 tests. “We have 104 ambulances in the system, and we need each one of those to be as efficient as we can," Peña said. “What was taking 20, 30, 35 minutes, now has doubled in certain instances.”
  11. People waiting in line overnight in Orlando to get tested. https://www.orlandosentinel.com/coronavirus/os-ne-coronavirus-convention-center-tests-capacity-20200627-pd57tuxgbrbtpoapjgt5jv55hi-story.html In what was described Saturday as “nothing but a sea of cars,” people waited to be tested for the coronavirus on a busy day at the Orange County Convention Center in southwest Orlando. Some had waited overnight, reported the Florida Association of Public Information Officers, which is working with the state’s Division of Emergency Management, the agency running drive-though test sites in the fight against COVID-19.
  12. They didn’t test DS2 and we still don’t know what happened but he is feeling better. So I’m thankful. His GF called today and the “friend” came into her boutique to shop. This little chic is supposed to be on quarantine....hasn’t been 2 wks! Now GF is exposed again and a mother and small child that was In the store. I haven’t had the PLEASURE of meeting this girl as of yet but I already know I’m not going to like her
  13. Last Thursday DS2 and his girlfriend went to stay at casino for her friend’s birthday. They got a text Friday telling them the “friend” and her boyfriend left the casino and went straight to be tested and was positive. Come to find out they had both been exposed and KNEW they had been exposed but she didn’t want to cancel her party and miss out on the fun. This mama has been livid! So our kids tested negative Saturday. My son went and retested yesterday bc he didn’t feel right....still negative. This morning he called me to his room at 5. Said something was wrong...chest hurt....shoulder and arm hurt (the same one he banged up in a car accident a couple weeks ago)...felt like he was going to throw up and was CRYING. Y’all he’s 21 and I don’t remember the last time he cried. So I’m sitting in ER parking lot now. I’m a nervous wreck. My husband is offshore and I don’t want to call him and freak him out until I know Something. Surely it’s not Corona if two rapid tests said negative right?
