As part of my virtual clubhouse attendance we compose a weekly newsletter that is published each Friday, I have decided to include those writings in my Blog

Taking Extra Precautions this Cough & Cold Season
As I am writing this, it is the first full week of October, which is unofficially the start of cough and cold season. While I can usually bounce back from a cough or cold as in years past, I have learned that prevention is the best ounce of prevention especially with COVID 19 around us this year.
With that being said, I am washing my hands more along with applying hand sanitizer and wearing a mask (and keeping them clean as well.) I feel that these are good general defenses in being well this winter. Additionally, I am doing something for the first time in 35 years of my life, and that is getting a flu shot. In years past I would have vehemently denied this and I almost did this year, but I took into consideration that my parents are both senior citizens and my exposure to the public. I am exposed to exotic elements where flulike symptoms can be contracted. Therefore, I made the decision at my doctor visit this week to get the flu shot.
Furthermore, if I do have the signs such as a cough or cold, I will take notice and will call off from the Clubhouse and work as suggested as a precautionary measure. That way I can take care of myself and be back up and running at normal speed should something occur. However, I do pray for a less infective season this year..
