Benton County is no longer on the watch list, but we cannot move away from taking precautions to keep folks safe. This includes wearing masks, practicing physical distancing, and connecting in new ways as we keep each other safe.

Sweet Home School Districts nutrition programs are offering unique twists in the coming weeks.

Read on to learn more about this resource for kids under 18.

The Sweet Home School District Nutrition Services team continues to serve free grab and go meals daily for children up through age 18.

The meals often include unusual and colorful fruits and vegetables as part of our Fresh Fruit & Vegetable Program (FFVP).

The close up picture of what you might think is a pickle or a gherkin, is in fact a "Finger Lime" -- it is tiny in size but packs a mighty punch when it comes to flavor. If you cut it in half, and give each half a little squeeze, out pops little kernels of pure puckery lime surprise. “It’s the most unique citrus fruit I've ever seen or tasted,” said Nutrition Services Director Milli Horton. “I liked it plain or with a tiny bit of salt.”

Starting at the top of the next picture are Carnival Grapes... tastes and smells like Cotton Candy, then directly under those... ruby red Texas Grapefruit -- sweet and delicious! Moving clockwise, next are Oregon Butter Pears, then Blood Orange wedges and then a new variety of kiwi called Red Kiwi.

All of these will be in the grab and go bags either this week or next. Grab and go meals are available from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Monday through Friday at Sweet Home High School (on the west side of the school), Foster Elementary School and Holley Elementary School.

Enjoy!

Do you know if there is lead in your home? Many homes built before 1978 contain lead paint. When lead paint gets old, it can peel or flake. In Oregon, about 54% of homes and apartments were built before 1980. Test kits from your hardware store can tell you if there is lead in painted surfaces. https://www.epa.gov/lead/lead-test-kits

Yesterday we released our latest update to the modeling projections, which show that COVID-19 has continued to spread in Oregon over the past several weeks and has the potential to continue to keep increasing in its spread: http://ow.ly/RdV050BUO33

The model examined three scenarios:

The first scenario is where transmission continues at its current level for the next several weeks, new infections and cases will increase substantially. The model suggests new infections would increase to 2,200 from 1,300 and daily reported cases will increase to 570. Hospitalizations from COVID-19 would increase to 40 a day. The reproductive rate would remain at 1.15

The next scenario assumes a 5-percentage point increase in transmission. Daily infections would increase to 3,400 and 740 daily reported cases. Hospitalizations would increase to 48 per day. The reproductive rate would be 1.30.

The most optimistic scenario assumes a drop in transmission by 10 percentage points. That would result in 1,400 daily infections amounting to about 290 daily reported cases. Hospitalizations would drop to 20 per day. The reproduction rate would drop to 0.88.

This new modeling suggests we still have a long way to go in stopping the spread. As our case counts rise, we continue to urge Oregonians to take steps to prevent the spread of COVID-19. This means that Halloween and other times of gathering must look different this year.

We're urging everyone 6 months and older to get an annual flu shot, especially as COVID-19 cases increase in Oregon, and the pandemic persists.

While it's unclear how the pandemic will affect the flu season, a “twindemic” of two potentially fatal viruses circulating at the same time could burden the state’s health care system and result in many illnesses, hospitalizations and deaths.

Getting a flu vaccine is something easy people can do to protect themselves and their loved ones and help reduce the spread of flu this fall and winter.
