The LCCR, Inc. Board is implementing the following actions in response to the COVID-19, aka novel coronavirus:
Dear Board members and staff/volunteers: BY now you should have all received an invitation from Chloe Karl to join the meeting via ZOOM. Roberta took it for a test drive and reports success! So, hopefully we can all join the meeting by tele.
Chloe is in charge of getting us all connected. THANK YOU CHLOE! It's a first, so we've decided to start the meeting at 6:00 pm so that by 6:15 we're all connected and ready to roll. The agenda and attachments referenced are in this email so hopefully we can do this sans paper. One thing about tele-conferencing is that we can't talk over one another, only one person speaks at a time.
Thanks all for working through this process.
Participants will call in at 6 pm
The ZOOM meeting will start at 6:15 pm
The agenda and minutes are attached as comments to this post.
The current report shows 5 deaths, 30 active cases and 350 cumulative cases. The two most recent deaths were part of a cluster in a senior living center. A previous death was a healthy 22 year old woman.
Update on Skilled Nursing Facility Outbreak
4 staff members have now tested positive, and 5 total residents. Tragically, 2 [residents] have passed away. Similar concerning situations have arisen in other counties around the state. The facility is working with local public health and state regulators to ensure everything is being done to protect staff and residents.
The station is operating on limited hours, with only one Board Operator (BO) in the studio, and any hosts calling in.

From the CA Dep of Public Health (3/13/20) :
There is currently no vaccine to prevent COVID-19. The best way to prevent illness is to avoid being exposed to this virus. The virus is thought to spread mainly from person-to-person between people who are in close contact with one another (within about 6 feet). This occurs through respiratory droplets produced when an infected person breaths, talks, coughs or sneezes. These droplets can land in the mouths or noses of people who are nearby or possibly be inhaled into the nose and lungs. Older adults and people who have severe underlying chronic medical conditions like heart or lung disease or diabetes seem to be at higher risk for developing more serious complications from COVID-19 illness. Every person has a role to play. So much of protecting yourself and your family comes down to common sense:
