From the American Academy of Pediatrics regarding in-person schooling…

“As we start the 2021-’22 school year, a large portion of students are not eligible to be vaccinated and there are COVID variants that are more contagious. Because of this and because we want to have all students in school, the AAP advocates for all students, teachers and staff to wear masks while indoors in school,” she said.”

Keeping masks on in school and urging everyone who is eligible to get vaccinated against COVID-19 are among several coordinated interventions recommended in updated AAP interim guidance that strongly advocates for in-person learning during the 2021-’22 school year.

Nearly all hospitals flout federal requirement to post prices, report finds

According to the Washington Post, most U.S. Hospitals are not following federal guidelines for price transparency.

If a hospital near you is not fully disclosing their prices, along with their negotiated reimbursement rates with insurance, they are doing more than not following federal guidelines; they are doing a disservice to their local community.

Patients deserve to know their healthcare costs before committing to a service.

The days of a 3,000% markup are over.

https://www.washingtonpost.com/health/2021/07/16/hospital-cost-transparency/

The report found that 471 of 500 surveyed hospitals failed to fully post the prices they charge patients and the rates they have negotiated with insurers.

CDC Updates Guidelines To Protect Kids From COVID In School. Plus: Vacation Tips

From the CDC, courtesy of NPR:

“Today the agency issued updated guidance for K-12 schools, highlighting the importance of getting as many eligible kids vaccinated as possible in order to return classrooms to normal, or near normal.”

The updated guidance promotes vaccination for those old enough and says vaccinated kids may not need masks. What about kids too young for vaccines? And as summer begins, what about vacation risks?

The Delta variant was recently discovered in Nashville. Get your vaccine and help protect those around you.

Healthy grieving

“Active, healthy grieving requires balance—balancing the time you spend directly working on your grief with the time you spend coping with your day-to-day life; balancing the amount of time you spend with others with the time you spend alone; balancing seeking help from others with caring for yourself. Focusing too strongly on any single side of these pairings is getting off-track.”

CDC: Nearly every adult COVID-19 death is now "entirely preventable" thanks to vaccines

“Why it matters: Deaths from the virus have dramatically decreased since their peak in early 2021, but the U.S. is still currently reporting an average of more than 200 deaths every day, though the numbers could increase as the B.1.617.2 (or Delta) variant of the virus becomes the dominant strain in the country.”

THE CRIME OF THE CENTURY - Review by Martha K Baker

Please watch the HBO documentary, “The Crime of the Century” to better understand the opioid crisis in America, and the role certain politicians have played in protecting this crime against humanity.

From the article: “Politicians, including Sen. Marsha Blackburn (R-Tenn.), are shown gutting the DEA’s ability to go after corrupt companies, thereby supporting the drug companies rather than representing their constituents, some of them victims of the industry’s corruption.”

It is clear some people in power are only concerned about making money, and are not concerned about saving lives.

How does COVID-19 end in the US? Likely with a death rate Americans are willing to 'accept'

Getting vaccinated may not seem like a big deal to some, but for others, it is life-changing.

Look at the difference in vaccination rates between a large metropolis like the San Francisco area vs a smaller metropolis like the Nashville area. There is a strong correlation between deaths from #COVID19 and vaccination rates.

Get vaccinated. Save lives.

“In San Francisco County, no one has died of COVID-19 for nearly a month, according to the local health department. But In Davidson County, Tennessee, home to Nashville and 185,000 fewer people, eight have died in the past two weeks.

The difference is vaccination rates. In San Francisco, 78% of people over the age of 12 have had at least one shot. In Davidson County it's 47%.”

https://www.usatoday.com/story/news/health/2021/06/06/what-will-the-end-of-covid-19-look-like/7456228002/

Without near-universal vaccination, experts say the end of COVID-19 in the U.S. will be like the flu, where 100 deaths a day is considered 'good.'

You should have equal access to healthcare no matter where you stop.

Healthcare is a right, and should be freely accessible across the board, not just for Park Place residents.

Equitable access for #COVID19 services is a step in the right direction, but we still have a long way to go.

Little-Known Illnesses Turning Up in Covid Long-Haulers

“Long-term symptoms are common.

A University of Washington study published in February in the Journal of the American Medical Association’s Network Open found that 27% of COVID survivors ages 18-39 had persistent symptoms three to nine months after testing negative for covid.

The percentage was slightly higher for middle-aged patients, and 43% for patients 65 and over.”

From the CDC:

“UPDATE: If you are fully vaccinated against COVID-19, you can resume activities that you did before the pandemic without wearing a mask or staying 6 feet apart, except where required by federal, state, local, tribal, or territorial laws, including local business and workplace guidance.

If you haven't received a COVID-19 vaccine, get one as soon as you can.”
