The CDC says there’s no evidence that any animals in the U.S. have contracted or can spread the virus. This also means that quarantining them is an unnecessary measure. (And using medical masks, even for entertaining photo ops, is a wasteful and potentially dangerous practice, in light of shortages of these essential supplies at hospitals that really need them.)

Taking Precautions

What remains uncertain is if pets can carry the virus on their fur in the same way that the virus could live on hard surfaces for up to three days (and potentially on soft materials like cardboard boxes or laundry for 24 hours). Because we still have a lot to learn about this novel illness, erring on the side of caution is never a bad idea. There are healthy habits…

According to the Palm Beach Post, The Palm Beach Police Department has responded to more than 130 violations of town ordinance warnings since special measures were taken by officials to contain the spread of the coronavirus in town.

Police Chief Nicholas Caristo said it’s difficult to tally all the cases, but in all, the department has responded to 27 trespass violations in addition to five trespassing arrests. There also have been 36 complaints of “inappropriate social distancing.”

“The police department has no higher purpose than the safety of our residents,” Caristo said. “The Town of Palm Beach has a population that is particularly vulnerable to COVID-19. We have already lost two residents to this disease.”

Everyone understands that…

Some distilleries around the country, including one in South Florida, are converting their alcohol production into creating their own hand sanitizers.

Steel Tie Spirits in West Palm Beach is doing just that and donating them to hospitals, first responders and retirement homes.

Ben Etheridge, the co-founder of the company, says they are selling hand sanitizer to the general public for $10. Proceeds from those sales will help offset the costs for the distillery.

“We’re going to start making hand-sanitizer, we’re not trying to make money on it. We are just trying to pay our employees and do some good for the community. So to be able to put them to work, bottling a product that’s definitely needed in the community that’s huge to us, that’s…

As we begin another week in quarantine, the Coronavirus Pandemic is affecting millions—both directly and in other ways. It’s important though, that we keep our heads up and remain strong. This doesn’t mean false optimism or burying your head in the sand. Strength comes from staring a problem directly in the face, seeing it for what it is, and concerning ourselves only with those things we have the power to control.

While each of us has a wellspring of strength, we all dredge that strength up in different ways. Some do it through music, others through meditation, and still others by reading and listening to sage advice.

Here are some of the most pertinent and useful aphorisms for helping get through and remain strong in this difficult time.

One great way to keep the positive vibes flowing in your home is to listen to upbeat music. While the widely panned celebrity attempt at singing John Lennon’s ‘Imagine’ may not have done much to cheer you up, there are certainly many songs that will. Here are 15 great tunes we suggest playing to help improve your mood while you're in quarantine.

1. "Happy," Pharrell (2013): When bad news comes, talking this and that, this song brings the positivity.

2. "Better Be Good to Me," Tina Turner (1984): If there's a bad Tina Turner song, we've yet to hear it.

3. "Blessed," Elton John (1995): "I promise you that, promise you that, promise you that // You'll be blessed." Thanks, Elton.

4. "Good as Hell," Lizzo (2016): Lizzo knows her worth. Do you?

While there is still no cure for the Coronavirus there are things we can do to help keep ourselves safe and limit the spread the disease.

Here are some suggestions that have been endorsed by the CDC and World Health Organization:

Wash Your Hands Frequently

Regularly and thoroughly clean your hands with an alcohol-based hand rub or wash them with soap and water.

Why? Washing your hands with soap and water or using alcohol-based hand rub kills viruses that may be on your hands.

Maintain Social Distancing

Maintain at least 1 metre (3 feet) distance between yourself and anyone who is coughing or sneezing.

Why? When someone coughs or sneezes, they spray small liquid droplets from their nose or mouth which may contain virus. If you are…

Yesterday health officials announced that the number of Floridians diagnosed with the Coronavirus has soared to more than 9,000, including 737 in Palm Beach County.

The 1,235 new cases are the most in any 24-hour period since the state confirmed its first case a month ago. The 121 new cases in the county are a 20 percent jump in 24 hours. Statewide, the number of confirmed cases grew by 16 percent in one day.

This all means that we in Palm Beach County need to continue to take social distancing seriously and avoid any kind of unnecessary physical interaction until we have successfully “flattened the curve” in our area.

Good News

Officials at the county’s Health Care District, which has been running the testing center at the FITTEAM…
