Health experts now recommend wearing face masks in public

PORTLAND, Pray. – The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) now recommends the use of face masks in public. Following the new guidelines, health officials from the Portland metropolitan area discussed the issue in a video conference.

Health officials addressed key points about the new recommendations, including who may be better protected by wearing masks and why.

“If we wear mask covers, we decrease the number of drops we release when we sneeze, cough, or talk,” said Dr. Christina Baumann, Washington County health officer. “If we have no symptoms or if we have mild symptoms, wearing a face covering will help us not pass infections on to others without knowing it.”

Authorities also make it clear that masks that are normally used in a medical setting are not part of the new guidelines.

However, health experts recommend cloth masks such as scarves, scarves, and other homemade masks.

“What we can suggest is that the tighter the fabric, such as the amount of thread on the sheets, the thicker the fabric, the better it will fit your face, and the better the protection,” said Dr. Sarah Present. , Clackamas County Health Officer.

Health officials are also reminding people that wearing a mask or covering their faces is not a substitute for social estrangement.

“Covering your face is not a substitute for staying home or stopping away from others, and you have to stay home especially when you’re sick,” said Dr. Jennifer Vines, director of health for the three-county region: Washington, Clackamas and Multnomah.

She stressed that wearing a mask does not give her permission to go out to do nonessential things or to go out sick.

Anyone wearing a face mask should also remember to practice good hand hygiene.

Officials are concerned that people may become infected by adjusting the mask often or continually touching the face mask while wearing it.

It should be noted that there is no plan to make the use of a mask mandatory.

Here’s a video shared by health experts on how to make your own mouth mask.

Residents of Umatilla County presumably test coronavirus | Local news

WESTON – The coronavirus has arrived in eastern Oregon.

The Oregon health authority announced Monday that it had diagnosed a third suspected coronavirus case in Umatilla county. Preliminary reports indicate that the county resident participated in a youth basketball game in the Weston Middle School gymnasium, 205 E. Wallace St., in Weston, Saturday February 29. The person is hospitalized in Walla Walla, Washington, the health authority said.

Officials from the school district of Athena-Weston have closed the gym and are cleaning thoroughly. The gym is physically detached from the rest of the school. Health officials do not believe that the separate school building poses any risk of exposure.

The OHA is investigating the case to see how many other people have come into close contact with the victim. According to the guidelines of the Federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), other spectators who may have been in a closed environment with the individual would be considered “low risk” exposures.

Laure Quaresma, superintendent of the school district of Athena-Weston, told al Bulletin of the Walla-Walla Union that the victim is a man who had no children in the district and that playing in the middle school gym was not affiliated with any of the district’s sports teams.

“We don’t have children with any symptoms,” he said Union-Bulletin. “We know what to look for and have been in close contact with the Oregon Health Authority.”

The person diagnosed with coronavirus, more specifically known as COVID-19, is also an employee of the Wildhorse Resort & Casino, confirmed Confederated Tribes of the Umatilla Indian Reservation.

As a precaution, the tribe board of directors ordered the tribes to close Wildhorse Resort & Casino, Nixyaawii Community School, Head Start, Daycare and Senior Center to be closed until all facilities were fully sanitized and all events in the area canceled. Indian booking of Umatilla for the week.

CTUIR spokesman Chuck Sams told the Associated Press that employee Wildhorse worked in a restricted area of ​​the casino and not with the general public.

In a conference call with the media, local and state health officials tried to warn public opinion against overreacting to the news, acknowledging the severity of the virus.

Umatilla County Public Health Director Joseph Fiumara said his department was starting to receive calls from people concerned about the virus.

“Our entire public health team is working diligently to follow every possible link, identifying all those who are potentially at risk and trying to respond to public inquiries as soon as they arrive,” he said. “But we are overloaded with calls.”

State health officer Dean Sidelinger also urged caution.

“We know that this disease can cause serious illness and has resulted in thousands of deaths worldwide, but we want to remind people that the vast majority of people infected with COVID-19 will have a mild disease,” he said.

He added that the people most likely to suffer from more severe symptoms are the elderly and people with other health problems such as breathing problems, heart disease, obesity or diabetes.

Although this particular strain of viruses originated in China, Chinese foods and products manufactured or shipped from China do not pose a threat to public health.

Sidelinger said the Oregon State Public Health Laboratory has the ability to test the virus, but because it is so new, the state refers to each case as “presumptive” until the CDC can confirm the diagnosis on a new test. .

The previous two cases were in the Portland metropolitan area and, with no suspicion of commonality between them and the Umatilla county case, Sidelinger said that Oregonians should expect the virus to spread further in the coming days.

“We predict that the number of these cases will increase and we could see more serious illnesses and perhaps even deaths within Oregon,” he said.

In the wake of the news, Umatilla County Commissioner George Murdock booked an emergency flight home from the National Association of Counties legislative conference in Washington, DC, in which he and other commissioners were attending to meet FEMA and staff. federal legislation in the hope of securing funding for the county’s flood remediation efforts.

“We spoke as Commissioners and felt that in light of the situation, one of us had to be home,” said Murdock on Monday afternoon before boarding his flight. “My top priority is to get home as quickly as possible.”

Meanwhile, other county communities continue to prepare.

Pam Schulz, head of the infection control program at Hermiston’s Good Shepherd Medical Center, said the hospital is following the directions of the CDC, OHA and the Umatilla County Health Department on screening and other procedures.

“It is currently a mobile target,” he said. “We have a plan that we have edited three times since Friday and are editing it again today.”

Schulz said that Good Shepherd has so far had no problem getting medical supplies, such as masks, despite an increase in public purchases of these items.

If someone has mild or moderate symptoms that they believe may be coronavirus, such as a cough, they can consult their primary care provider. More serious symptoms, such as shortness of breath, may require first aid treatment.

Schulz encouraged people seeking information to consult the CDC website.

“They should make sure they get their information from credible sources,” he said.

In Pendleton, St. Anthony Hospital CEO Harry Geller said the medical center had strengthened access.

“We are limiting access only to patients, staff and suppliers,” said Geller. “There are no visitors until further notice. We are canceling all the community groups that meet in the hospital. “

He urged people who begin to experience the disease to stay home unless they are seriously ill.

“First aid is for critically ill patients,” he said. “Use common sense out there.”

COVID-19 is a viral strain that has only spread to people since December 2019. The virus spreads from one person to another through the air coughing and sneezing, close personal contact, like touching or shaking hands and touching a object or surface with the virus above, then touch your mouth, nose or eyes.

Obituary of David Ogden Stiers | Television and radio

There are some actors who have a role against which an entire career is measured. The touchstone for David Ogden Stiers, who died of cancer at the age of 75, was Major Charles Emerson Winchester III in the top TV series M * A * S * H, from 1977 to 1983.

Winchester joined the medical team of the Army Mobile Surgical Hospital stationed in South Korea at the height of the Korean War, replacing the rude and inept Frank Burns. In contrast, Harvard-educated Winchester was a highly qualified, extremely well-read surgeon and a great lover of classical music. In these and other respects Winchester looked like Stiers in real life and his character carried some gravity to M * A * S * H. In fact, Winchester was probably the most cultured and articulate character who ever honored an American TV sitcom, if M * A * S * H ​​can be called like this.

The show had a limited laugh and was not afraid to go from comedy to drama. The tall and bald Stier created a rounded and credible figure in Winchester, the nemesis of his fellow surgeons Hawkeye (Alan Alda) and BJ Hunnicutt (Mike Farrell), who got rid of their frustration and disgust with the war by playing fools. jokes and witty.

Winchester has maintained his sanity, condemning everyone and everything around him, and Stiers has portrayed his repressed frustration in a magnificent outburst. “Know this,” he said. “You can cut me out of the civilized world, you can jail me with two stupid cellmates, you can torture me with your sweat three times a day, but you can’t break the spirit of a Winchester. My word will be heard from this desert. I will be freed from this fetid and festive sewer. “

In many episodes Stiers has also revealed the tender side of Winchester, such as the one in which he defends a young patient who is bullied because he stutters. Despite his pompousness, he shows a clear concern for the well-being of his patients.

Stiers was born the son of Margaret (born Ogden) and Kenneth Stiers, accountant and seller of timber in Peoria, Illinois, but he was educated and educated in Oregon. After attending the University of Oregon, he joined the company of the Santa Clara Shakespeare festival, where he stayed for seven years, during which, despite his young age, he was able to deal with parties such as Richard III and King Lear.

In 1969 he moved to New York to study theater and singing at the Juilliard school. After a stint at the San Francisco Actors Workshop, he became a member of John Houseman’s downtown theater drama company where, in 1973-74, he starred in The Beggar’s Opera, Measure for Measure and The Three Sisters. From there Stiers went directly to Broadway, where he appeared as an old alcoholic magician in the hit musical in one act The Magic Show (1974-78), using his rich baritone in different numbers.

Major Winchester, played by David Ogden Stiers, faces bullying in M ​​* A * S * H

Stiers’ long career on television began in 1975 with a small part in Kojak, then as head of the autocratic television station on The Mary Tyler Moore Show (1976-77) shortly before M * A * S * H ​​and fame and luck came. He was rarely out of television for the next four decades. Among the shows he has starred in are North and South (1985), Murder, She Wrote (1986), Star Trek: The Next Generation (1991), Love and Money (1999-2000) and The Dead Zone (2002-07) , in which he was memorable as the enigmatic Rev Purdy.

Stiers managed to do something of the most ungrateful role in television drama, that of district attorney Michael Reston, who always lost his cases in the Perry Mason series (1986-88). Occasionally the Winchester ghost emerged, as in a 2003 episode of Frasier in which Stiers, like the psychologist Leland Barton, discovers that he has a lot in common with the main character, discussing with him about antiques and furniture while sipping sherry . In many ways the Winchester snob was actually an antecedent of Frasier.

Stiers’ spasmodic roles in feature films included short appearances in five of Woody’s less successful films: Another Woman (1988), Shadows and Fog (1991), Mighty Aphrodite (1995), Everybody Says I Love You (1996) and The Curse of the Jade Scorpion (2001). But much of his other film work has been listened to and unseen, as he was an exemplary voice artist in a series of animated films, primarily for Walt Disney.

They began as the voice of the clock and as the narrator in Beauty and the Beast (1991), continuing with Pocahontas (1995), The Hunchback of Notre Dame (1996) and Teacher’s Pet (2004). On television he also voiced House of Mouse (2001-02) and villain Jumba Jookiba in Lilo and Stitch (2003-2006), demonstrating an extraordinary range of accents and timbre.

Another branch of his talents was as resident conductor of the Newport Symphony Orchestra of Newport, Oregon.

In 2009 he chose to go out as gay, saying: “I would like to spend the twilight of my life being just what I am”.
