Active cases at 147 in Medina County this week, area hospitalizations rising

Active COVID-19 cases are continuing to go up and are at 147 as of yesterday for our county. We have one death to report. One week ago we had 83 active cases. These cases reflect only the reported COVID-19 positive tests, and that data can lag behind. There are many people that may have mild symptoms or are asymptomatic and don’t test. Public health recommendations as Delta cases continue to spread are to practice sanitation precautions, cleaning frequently touched surfaces, staying out of crowds and yes wearing a mask. Sounds all too familiar again, but the virus is more contagious than before and even the vaccinated should take precautions until cases go down. Why should the vaccinated need to wear a mask or be concerned? Some vaccinated are getting sick and testing positive. The good news is that they aren’t the ones going to the hospital; the vast majority are still the unvaccinated that are at greatest risk of severe illness. Most of us know someone right now who is sick or has been in the hospital with COVID. We need to take it serious and pay attention to what is going on. We all have better things to do than keep talking about COVID, so go get vaccinated, no one is Superman, that’s only in the movies.

“Breakthrough” case or not, Haby says shot saved his life

“The situation is shocking really. My wife and I were fully vaccinated, so I am one of the rare breakthrough cases that still caught it. But like the doctors said, I am so glad I got the vaccine, or I might be dead today. It’s no laughing matter,” said David Haby, 77, who just returned home to Medina County.

Let’s do a little stir-fry cooking

Rain and more rain seems to be the order of the week here in my area. I was up early and watched lots of lightening toward the east. No showers for me from that, but Wednesday evening we had a good shower. Each day the number of boxes I need to unpack goes down a little bit, but I am a long way from finished. Most of the drawers are finished, but the cabinets themselves lack a lot, of course, the stuff to be unpacked needs to be placed on higher shelves, and so I will wait until I have help! My computer is still down, but hopefully, since I brought it to Devine with me this trip, something can be done for me. Thank goodness for a son-in-law who knows computers backwards and forwards! My local tech could not do anything for me; he basically told me I needed an expert.
