Greetings Rocket Post,

    Here we are, another fantastic week and the weather is changing for the better every single day. Yes I know everyone has the Coronavirus on their mind and each and every one of us should be up to speed on everything going on around us. Here is what I know as of today. There are 4 cases in Central Florida and there are 3 cases in Volusia County all under control and being treated. As many of you have seen on the news there have been a lot of closings and sporting events that will not be played as a precaution. Schools will have their students learning remotely as some employers will allow their employees to work from home. Even car races will take place with only their crews and no fans will be authorized. The goal is to prevent any possibility of someone getting the virus and taking it home to share with others. It is only a precaution.


    As of now there are no known cases in Brevard County and hopefully it stays that way. As a precaution we at the Rocket Post will not sit back and wait, we are taking the steps to help prevention and that is by educating all our members and their guests. In actuality it is pretty simple and basic hygiene. Cover your mouth when you cough. Cover your face when you sneeze, wash your hands often, not just after you use the bathroom. Do not rub your eyes, your face or your lips. Use hand sanitizer which is located in the canteen, the hall, the kitchen and most of you all carry some in your purse.


    Here are some questions to ask yourself and those you want to spend time with. Have you traveled outside the U.S. in the last two weeks? Have you been in close contact with someone testing positive for COVID-19? Do you have a fever greater than 100 degrees? Keep in mind a fever alone is not an indication you need to be tested for COVID-19. But if you've traveled or come in contact with a COVID-19-positive person, you need to be tested. Call your medical provider first and get instructions on how to report for a test.

     Symptoms of coronavirus may include fever, cough difficulty breathing and sore throat. Symptoms generally appear in two to 14 days after exposure. Health officials said most patents experience mild symptoms and can recover at home. However some patients, particularly those with underlying medical conditions, may experience more severe respiratory illness.

    Yes I know some folks are worried and that is a good thing. Be smart about what you do and this too shall pass. Everyone, we will be ok.


Have a wonderful week.
