SENIORS ALIVE! JUNE 2020 ISSUE

WE MAY BE SHELTERING IN PLACE, BUT YOUR GHSS IS STILL TICKING ALONG!


We're adapting to life in time of a pandemic. It's been an especially scary time for seniors because we are the group most  to this virus. Although we live in an area that has no been as badly affected as some others, community based infection continue to occur in all counties.  

There is some loosening of restrictions, response to a longing to resume a normal life. But the virus is still with us. We must continue to practice precautionary measures as recommended by our state medical services. This certainly includes avoiding large groups and please, wear a mask. 

Between 25-35% of people who do not show symptoms of the disease can be carrying the virus, and yet only a small number of people have been tested for the virus. If you have not had the PCR test, you  cannot be certain that you do not carry the virus. Wearing a mask won't keep you from becoming infected, but it can keep you from infecting somebody else. Wearing a mask is a sign of respect. I am honestly highly dismayed at the number of shoppers in Shaw's early Sunday morning who do not 'get it,' are not wearing masks.

The primary concern of GHSS is for you. That you be able to live full lives in health and happiness. We follow the advice of health scientists in curtailing most of the activities that you Seniors have so enjoyed in the past.  Along with you, we hope this terrible time will quickly pass. 

Meanwhile, we urge you to be careful. Best to stay in and stay safe. Please respect your friends and neighbors by wearing a mask.


GARY SAMUELS

Shopping at Warner is resuming, as is armchair yoga. To participate in either of these activities you will have to wear a mask.
