Is the swine flu changing your daily activities?
In Oct. 29 Issue

Is swine flu awareness causing you to alter your daily activities?

If you are like most of us today, the answer is certainly yes.

The past several weeks have been ones highlighted with reports concerning the flu, the prevention of flu and the availability of vaccine and etc.

The flu awareness has likely been introduced into your daily activities much more than your realize.

One thing for sure, is the washing of hands. Most all of us are noticeably taking this simple and probably most important preventive measure.

Schools are making the washing of hands more prominent in the daily activities of the students and this certainly must carry over into the homes. Business places and offices are also  making this more obvious. Our real estate office now has bottles of hand disinfectant at all desks.

We have had several guests at our office asking to use the hand cleanser.

One gentleman from Cincinnati came to the office this week, we shook hands and almost immediately he apologized. He asked that we both use the hand cleanser as he stated he was sincerely trying to bump fists rather than shaking hands. He simply forgot.

We noted at Kroger this week that many of the customers were using the disposable wipes to clean the handles on the grocery carts.

Many hospitals are limiting the number of visitors to each room and  some hospitals are actually checking each visitor before they are allowed into the facility.

Are you more aware of guarding your sneezes now? Do you try to place your nose and mouth into the bend of you elbow?

We are more and more seeing this being done.

All of us are just as likely to be concerned over the flu vaccine.

Should we take it? Should our children take it? Is it available or when will it be available?

Personally we will take the vaccine when available and we would also encourage our son to do likewise.

But, you have to wonder where are all our federal programs and guidelines to make these vaccine available to the general public. Our government rules or attempts to rule all aspects of our lives but when actually needed, not there!

Like many other areas of our daily lives and routines, these preventive routines are likely to stay with us and even increase as we continue.

What alterations have you made in your activities? Let us know, write to us at  Box 190 or email publisher@tjrcn.com
