Beware of Gift Cards Scams

Gift cards are a popular and convenient way to give someone a gift. They’re also a popular way for scammers to steal money from you. That’s because gift cards are like cash: if you buy a gift card and someone uses it, you probably cannot get your money back. Gift cards are for gifts, not payments. Anyone who demands payment by gift card is always a scammer.

Flu Symptoms vs COVID-19 Symptoms

Please read COVID-19 Symptoms vs. Flu, Cold & Allergies as a reminder of the differences between the Flu Symptoms and the COVID Symptoms – print it out and post it at home & work.  Also, just assume everyone is positive and protect yourselves.  A Covid test is only as good as when it is actually taken, and the research is showing the majority of people do NOT show symptoms.  Some new research is also showing rinsing your mouth with Listerine (Original or mint) or Crest mouthwash breaks down the outer shell of the COVID virus allowing it to be inactive.  Since much of the virus is carried in the oral cavity, it is suggested rinsing for 30 seconds twice a day.
Another reminder, get all of your vaccines:  Flu, Pneumoccal, Prevnar 13 and the new Shingles vaccine (Shingrix – 2 shots & it is 95% effective).
