This morning in west central Missouri:
Treats. Avoiding the rush.

Unfortunately we are again encountering a significant number of individuals that have tested positive for COVID-19 who are declining to provide us with potential sources of exposure and/or identify any potential direct contacts. While this is the individual’s right to do so, this negatively impacts our ability to effectively contact trace and notify individuals of their exposure to COVID-19. This means there are individuals still attending work, school, public and private events that have been exposed to COVID-19, may or may not be aware of their exposure, and are potentially further spreading COVID-19 amongst the community. Unfortunately this increases the chance that COVID-19 will unknowingly enter our schools, long-term care facilities, and places of business. When we call you after your positive result, we ask that you are honest and thorough, so that we can confidentially notify the contacts of their exposure to further mitigate the spread of COVID-19.
A friendly reminder that if you are tested for COVID-19 you must quarantine/isolate until you have your test results back. Please do not get tested and then return to school or work. Unfortunately we have numerous individuals who continue to go work or attend school after being tested only to be called later with a positive test result. This unnecessarily exposes others to COVID-19.
Care facilities with current COVID-19 outbreaks include: MO Veterans Home, St. James Living Center, Ferndale Residential Care Facility, Presbyterian Manor (staff only), Maries Manor (staff only)
“Unfortunately we are again encountering a significant number of individuals that have tested positive for COVID-19 who are declining to provide us with potential sources of exposure and/or identify any potential direct contacts…”

Good neighbors, right?

The fatalities are among the elderly. Good neighbors protect the elderly. Sociopaths don’t give a damn.
Good neighbors, eh?
Today, on our front steps:
One has returned!
This might have been the yard sign which blew away in very high winds. At the time we figured that it probably made it to St, Louis. It just goes to show you that marking “stolen from [address]” in permanent ink on the lower border of the sign sometimes helps in the return.

Wear a damn mask. And while you’re at it, wear some damn gloves.
Stay Home. Wash your hands. Don’t touch your face. Good luck to us all.
