The COVID-19 response in Miami-Dade got two upgrades Wednesday: the opening of a mask decontamination facility at Hard Rock Stadium in Miami Gardens and a mobile testing laboratory that can process 500 tests per day from long-term care facilities around the county.

“We believe this will be a game-changer,” said Gov. Ron DeSantis, who toured the facilities Wednesday.

The decontamination facility is made up of four shipping containers that can clean 80,000 N95 respirator masks per day, at no charge to healthcare personnel and hospitals or long-term care facilities. The system uses hydrogen peroxide vapor to clean used masks, which can be cleaned and reused up to 20 times.

According to the Miami Herald, While the decontamination facility is only…

Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis says he's in "discussions" with local officials to add Palm Beach County to Phase One of the state's reopening plan.

Speaking at a coronavirus testing site at Hard Rock Stadium in Miami Gardens on Wednesday, the governor said he hopes Miami-Dade, Broward, and Palm Beach counties will be added to the first phase "soon," but did not give a specific date.

"We'll hopefully be able to go forward soon in southern Florida, and I think that we can look to South Florida to really help lead Florida back," DeSantis said.

Currently, Miami-Dade, Broward, and Palm Beach counties are excluded from all areas of Phase One of the reopening plan, with the exception of elective surgeries.

Many doctors and dentists closed their offices during the coronavirus lockdown.

Now, as they begin to reopen, it's becoming clear that visiting the doctor's office will come with a whole new set of rules.

As things slowly start to creep toward normality places like dentists offices are figuring out what a new normal is going to look like.

Throughout the coronavirus pandemic, dentist offices have had a tough choice to make;

whether to remain open for emergencies or close completely, to ensure their patients, staff, and families were safe.

Now, dentists around South Florida are beginning to plan for a reopening, with many of them getting back to most of their normal services this week.

But things may look a little different than what…

If you are wondering about taking a coronavirus antibody test, here’s what you need to know:

You may hear it called a serology test. It looks for certain things called antibodies in your blood. Your body makes these when it fights an infection, like COVID-19. The same thing happens when you get a vaccine, like a flu shot. That’s how you develop immunity to a virus.

The antibody test isn’t checking for the virus itself. Instead, it looks to see whether your immune system—your body’s defense against illness—has responded to the infection.

What are Antibodies?

Antibodies are the body’s way of remembering how it responded to an infection so it can attack again if exposed to the same pathogen. People with antibodies in their blood have immune…

On Sunday, the CDC officially added these six symptoms to its list: chills, repeated shaking with chills, muscle pain, headache, sore throat, new loss of taste or smell, in addition to previously known symptoms of fever, cough, shortness of breath or difficulty breathing.

Face masks can play a role in preventing the infection, but that role is limited. A healthy individual in a normal situation does not need to wear a mask, as per CDC recommendations. A face mask is not the ideal solution for protection from the new coronavirus for the following reasons:

  • A surgical mask does not fit tightly over the nose and mouth.
  • It is not possible to prevent airborne virus infection.
  • It is difficult to keep a mask on for long periods of time.
  • When you touch the mask, you lose the protection and must replace the mask, and dispose of it safely.

A surgical face mask is highly recommended for people who have the coronavirus infection or have a high risk of exposure. It offers a certain amount of protection against…

COVID-19 might keep us in our homes for some time into the future. Here are a few tips for cutting your own hair if it is starting to get out of hand.

Men and Women: Wet Your Hair

Wet hair is the easiest to cut. Be sure your hair is clean and free of hair spray or gel. Brush or comb hair, so it's free of knots or tangles.

Women: Brush and Twist

Brush and gather your hair to the very top of your head, then give it a twist.

Women: How to Cut Your Own Hair

Depending on the amount you trim, larger cuts will create heavy layering and an angled haircut.

Release and brush out. Snip off any small hairs that may have been missed on the ends. Style as you like.

Men: How to…
