Snowfall predictions

A late season snow storm is set to affect southern Iowa starting on Thursday. Snow is expected to move into southwest Iowa around daybreak and then spread north and east through the day. Moderate to occasionally heavy snow is forecast at times by Thursday afternoon and into the evening across southern Iowa. Brisk east to northeast winds are also expected which will produce some drifting and blowing snow. If traveling across the southern half of Iowa on Thursday into Thursday night, be prepared for hazardous driving conditions. Additional information can be found at www.weather.gov/dmx

Snow is expected to push into southwest Iowa in the predawn hours before expanding north and east during the morning. By midday, much of southern Iowa will see light to moderate snowfall as the snow advances across the state. Heaviest accumulations are expected during the afternoon into the evening before tapering off late Thursday night. Be prepared for hazardous travel on Thursday into Thursday night across the southern half of Iowa!

Emerging Health Issues - Novel Coronavirus

First Case of COVID-19 Confirmed in Union County

A case of novel coronavirus (COVID-19) has been confirmed in Union County.
“While this is Union County’s first case, it may not be the last, and that’s why we encourage all residents to continue to make prevention a priority,” said Union County Public Health Nurse, Robin Sevier. These actions include:
All residents should:
• Stay home as much as possible. Leave only for essential errands like groceries or getting medication. When you run these errands, send only one person from the household, if possible.
• Stay home when even mildly ill (the kind of illness that normally wouldn’t prevent you from your everyday activities)
• Cover coughs and sneezes with a tissue or your elbow/upper arm.
• Wash hands frequently with soap and water for at least 20 seconds.
Approximately 80% of Iowans infected with COVID-19, will experience only a mild to moderate illness. Most mildly ill Iowans do not need to go to their healthcare provider or be tested to confirm they have COVID-19. Sick Iowans must stay home and isolate themselves from others in their house. Stay home and isolate from others in the house until:
• You have had no fever for at least 72 hours (that is three full days of no fever without the use of medicine that reduces fevers)
AND
• other symptoms have improved (for example, when your cough or shortness of breath have improved)
AND
• at least 7 days have passed since your symptoms first appeared.
If you think you may need healthcare, call first. Your provider can assess whether you need to be seen in the office or if you can recover at home. There may also be options for you to talk to a medical provider from home using technology.
For up-to-date information on COVID-19, visit the IDPH webpage at https://idph.iowa.gov/Emerging-Health-Issues/Novel-Coronavirus and follow the department on Facebook at @IowaDepartmentOfPublicHealth and on Twitter at @IAPublicHealth.

I cannot express how important it is to follow the recommendations of IDPH and CDC.

CDC is monitoring an outbreak caused by a novel (new) coronavirus first identified in China. The first U.S. case was announced January 21, 2020.

I have several yards of fabric that has been dropped off here for the making of masks, as well as the twist ties for nose pieces.
If you are making masks to donate back to our frontline folks, please stop in and get supplies.
I do not have any elastic, but you can use hair bands, shoe laces, fabric strips, etc. to replace the elastic.
