      New Visitation Guideines Seek to Relieve Debilitating Loneliness, Safety Concerns Remain

      Some long-term care facilities are slowly reopening to allow visits from family members, recognizing that residents have been suffering both emotionally and physically after months of isolation. The facilities have been doing so according to guidelines released recently by the state, as well as by federal authorities. Still, it can be a precarious balancing act: Allowing more people in – especially when adequate testing is lacking – can mean introducing the virus.

      Children spread coronavirus to family members following exposure at child care facilities, CDC says | Fox News

      “Twelve children acquired COVID-19 in child care facilities,' the CDC report stated in its findings.

    5. With no good options for school in the fall, how can parents decide whether to stay home or go to class?

      With no good options for school in the fall, how can parents decide whether to stay home or go to class?

      I think we can agree there are no good solutions when it comes to returning American kids to school in the age of coronavirus. Reopening in places where the virus is surging is a health gamble, and counties that choose to open schools will need a dizzying array of new procedures and smaller class sizes to mitigate risk.

      Love in the time of coronavirus: Couples share how they found matches in the middle of a pandemic - CNN

      If you asked Alec Mahon one month ago whether he believed in love, he'd probably tell you he had 'given up.'

      When coronavirus first hit in March, the freelance production manager paid about $30 for a three-month premium subscription on the dating app Hinge -- and he figured he'd just keep swiping until that ended.

    8. How Strict Should Schools Be About Masks? In Orange County, The Question's Part Of The Reopening Debate: LAist

      How Strict Should Schools Be About Masks? In Orange County, The Question's Part Of The Reopening Debate: LAist

      If Orange County public schools resume in-person instruction in the fall, the county's Department of Education has advised schools to 'encourage' students to wear masks and face coverings 'to the extent feasible.'

      But several members of Orange County's elected Board of Education have voiced skepticism about the scientific consensus that masks help prevent the spread of COVID-19 — and they think the department's guidelines don't strike the appropriate balance.

      Board members are now moving to publish their own set of guidelines that — according to this document — will advise OC schools that 'requiring children to wear masks during school is not only impossible to implement but not based on science and could be potentially harmful.' Another guideline: social distancing is 'unacceptable.'

    9. Majority on O.C. School Board talk against masks, social distancing for next school year

      Majority on O.C. School Board talk against masks, social distancing for next school year
      -->

      When the Orange County Board of Education met this week to talk about how schools should reopen from the coronavirus shutdown, one of the central subjects of the debate was conspicuously missing: facemasks.

      In a spacious room with at least 40 people – in front of an online audience that over the course of the evening grew to more than 700 – only one board member, Beckie Gomez, as well as county employees and a handful of attendees, wore facial coverings.

      All the missing masks aligned with the agenda set by the board’s conservative majority at its forum Wednesday night in Costa Mesa.

      Though the Orange County Department of Education recently released its official suggestions for how school districts should re-open – emphasizing guidance from public health sources – the board’s conservative majority wanted to discuss other ideas, emphasizing less social distancing and more traditional in-class education.

      Survey Shows How Couples Cope During Lockdown

      As U.S. states issued stay-at-home orders in March and April, one of many questions was how couples would fare under lockdown together. Now a new survey offers an initial snapshot: some more arguments, regular declarations of love, and a good dose of same-old, same-old.

      The survey included close to 2,300 U.S. adults who were living with their partner when the pandemic hit -- forcing most to hunker down at home.

      Coronavirus Response: Lockdowns Necessary, but Unsustainable

      The lockdowns were necessary. They were also unsustainable. Americans, so accustomed to freedom, were bound to chafe at being told what to do. Justified fear of coronavirus devastated the food and beverage, travel, hospitality, and entertainment sectors. The economic toll could persist just for so long before it became unbearable. Nor are public health, personal freedom, and economics the only competing values in this emergency. Spiritual life has been harmed.

      Harvard scientists say COVID-19 social distancing could last until 2022 | World Economic Forum

      People across the globe have been forced to adapt quickly to the social distancing brought about by the coronavirus pandemic. But while the world might be eager for a relaxation of the rules, the restrictions might be around for some time to come.

      • Not enough is known about COVID-19 to predict its future course.
      • There is a strong risk that a second spike in infections could overwhelm healthcare systems once lockdowns are lifted.
      • Some form of distancing restrictions could be required for more than a year, say experts.

      The Coronavirus Economic Reopening Will Be Fragile, Partial and Slow

      The re-emergence over the coming weeks and months will be fitful, fragile and partial—and a bit dystopian, with frequent temperature checks, increased monitoring of employees and customers, and, potentially, blood tests to determine whether workers have likely immunity to the virus. Officials and business leaders predict that operations won’t fully return to normal until an effective vaccine hits the market, estimated at least a year away.

      The CDC recommendsTrusted Source that all people wear cloth face masks in public places where it’s difficult to maintain a 6-foot distance from others. This will help slow the spread of the virus from people without symptoms or people who do not know they have contracted the virus. Cloth face masks should be worn while continuing to practice social distancing. Instructions for making masks at home can be found hereTrusted Source. Note: It’s critical to reserve surgical masks and N95 respirators for healthcare workers.

      Number of coronavirus deaths in New York flattens and hospitalizations fall, suggesting social distancing is working - MarketWatch

      With the number of COVID-19 deaths flat two straight days and new hospitalizations falling, New York is possibly entering the pandemic’s apex, said Gov. Andrew Cuomo on Monday. However, he stressed that New Yorkers need to practice better social distancing and extended the state’s lockdown until at least April 29. 

      “We get reckless, we change or are not compliant on social distancing, you will see those numbers go up again,” Cuomo said. “This virus has kicked our rear end; we underestimate this virus at our peril. Now is not the time to slack off on what we’re doing.”

      Loneliness endangers the body as well: how to stay connected with elderly loved ones | Society

      While isolation may protect older people in the coronavirus pandemic, it is exposing them to another, less understood challenge: loneliness. “L oneliness is not only a grave threat to individual welfare and public health but one of the most underappreciated risk factors for premature mortality,” says bioethicist and physician Jacob Appel. Along with smoking and obesity, loneliness ranks among what Appel calls the “triad of potentially preventable causes of early death”.

      For California and Washington, the coronavirus triggers came early. They pushed the two Western states to social distancing measures earlier than the rest of the country. In the San Francisco Bay Area, the warning came while the Grand Princess cruise ship, carrying infected crew and passengers, lurked outside the Golden Gate.
