Masks (along with social distancing and hand washing) are effective in reducing the chances of getting Covid 19 or giving it to someone else. It is NOT safe out there. Be smart. Follow the CDC guidelines. Wear your mask; practice social distancing; stay away from large gatherings; wash your hands frequently.

Are you disinfecting your surfaces sufficiently? A quick wipe doesn't kill germs. The disinfectant must make contact with the surface for several minutes to be effective. Read the label on your disinfectant. It will state how long the disinfectant should remain on the surface before you wipe it away...

There is more evidence that statins are extremely beneficial for all adult age groups. If your LDL is above 190 and unresponsive to diet and exercise, a statin is in your future. If you have known cardiovascular disease or diabetes, a statin is in your future regardless of your LDL. The good news is that most of the statins are now generic and quite inexpensive.

This year in the midst of the Covid 19 pandemic, it is particularly important to get your flu shot. Flu mimics the symptoms of Covid 19 and hence a flu outbreak will overwhelm the Covid testing facilities. Also, a flu outbreak will stress the medical facilities supporting inflicted flu or Covid patients. Get you flu vaccine! October is the best month to get this done (but any month will do).....

Indeed this is a very stressful time. Now more than ever, we need to exercise! This study reaffirms that exercise reduces stress. Go take that walk; Start jogging outside; Use that exercise bike; Take that on-line exercise class. You will feel better if you get that heart rate up!

Help is on the way. Several vaccines against Covid 19 are in the works and should be ready by the fall. Early results seem to indicate that they are safe and effective. There is light at the end of this Covid tunnel. Hang in there!
It is FRESH START time
