Just this morning when I did the Good Morning Gwinnett show I announced that we had over 25k new cases of the the Coronavirus as of last night. I just recently got an update from the Georgia Department Of Public Health that as of noon today there are 874 new cases of the Coronavirus since yesterday. That number is huge and I believe that it will only increase as Georgia reopens for business.
As of right now there are 26,033 confirmed cases of the virus here in Georgia. More than 1,107 people have died from the virus and 5,110 have been hospitalized.
Gwinnett County is in the top ten counties for the number of cases and the number of deaths. Although Fulton county has the most confirmed cases with 2,799 cases and 118 deaths in Georgia, Dougherty County has the most death with 1,499 cases and 119 deaths. Gwinnett County stands at number 3 on this list with 1,766 cases and 55 deaths.
Governor Brian Kemp will be announcing soon whether or not Georgia will be completely reopen as the deadline to reopen ends today. Kemp has gotten a lot of heat about reopening too soon even from Trump. We will wait until later today or tomorrow to see if Georgia will completely reopen and what does that mean for the citizens of Georgia.
No matter what the final decision will be you must still us precautions when you are out and about. Remember that this virus does not discriminate, so you must protect yourself and your family at all times.
Until Next Time
Make It A Great Day!
With so much going on today with the Coronavirus, small business owners and residents are struggling to make ends meet. That is why the town of Lawrenceville has stepped up to the plate to help its residents. Lawrenceville Is Offering Financial Support To Residents Who Need Money For Utilities. If you are in need of help paying your electric bill or your gas bill, you may qualify for support from the Salvation Army.
The Salvation Army has $100,000 in support to help those who need help paying their utility bill. By the time all of the assistance have been given to residents ands small businesses the total amount of money issued out will be around $2 million dollars. I'm sure that those who are in need of assistance will appreciate the support that the town of Lawrenceville and the Salvation Army are giving them in such a trying time.
For more information about what you need to do to get access to this support listen to the latest episode of Good Morning Gwinnett or you can visit www.AJC.com and click on county to find out more information on this story and how you can get access to the money that is available to assist those who need help paying their utility bills.
Because the Coronavirus is spreading so aggressively I asked my husband if he could ask his job if we could purchase some N-95 mask from them. There is a shortage of the masks at the store, so I thought that maybe because he worked at a pharmaceutical company we could purchase some from them. Well he forgot to ask and instead he went in the garage and found this one that was packed away in a box that has been there since we moved here almost 7 years ago.
I talked about this on the show this morning and decided that I would take a picture and post it here. With all of the social distancing we are all just a little bored. I'm even trying to learn TikTok with my daughter and niece.
All kidding aside. This virus is changing the the way we are living right now. We all have to be safe and also keep our families safe. The mask that I am wearing above is not something that most people have just laying around, that's why you have to try and get the N-95. They are saying that the regular hospital mask is not enough. We will be trying to purchase some from Uline which has a warehouse right here in Braselton. I wouldn't be surprised if they were out as well.
On to another topic. I saw a school bus delivering meals today to some of the students who live in my subdivision. It's nice to see that there are still people out there still trying to take care of those who are less fortunate. For some students this is so needed, because of hardships that their families maybe facing. Anyway it's nice to see that there are good people out there.
Stay Safe & Until Next Time
Make It A Great Day!
