The Life Enrichment Center Will Be Closed

The Life Enrichment Center will not be open until the quarantine is lifted from Hillsborough Centers and living communities that serve seniors.
In the meantime, we are going to offer virtual meetings through Zoom and workshops via videos on our website.

The Sunday AA group will determine how they would like to handle this situation. All other meetings and groups will be cancelled at the LEC for two weeks.

We have been working hard to do everything we can to be safe at this time, and our hope is that our efforts will assist in it’s containment. and eradication.

In the meantime we are doing a LEC creative challenge on Facebook and through our website.  Creative prompts for different art forms will be given each day, and we will be sharing photos of the results sent to us via email or through Facebook!! I can’t wait to see the art of all forms that we create!

Below are the official precautions that should be taken and the latest information about the virus.

Precautions

  1. If you have a runny nose and sputum, you have a common cold;
  2. Coronavirus pneumonia is a dry cough with no runny nose;
  3. This new virus is not heat-resistant and will be killed by a temperature of just 26/27 degrees. It hates the sun;
  4. If someone sneezes with it, it takes about 10 feet before it drops to the ground and is no longer airborne;
  5. If it drops on a metal surface it will live for at least 12 hours — so if you come into contact with any metal surface — wash your hands as soon as you can with a bacterial soap;
  6. On fabric, it can survive for 6-12 hours. Normal laundry detergent will kill it;
  7. Drinking warm water is effective for all viruses. Try not to drink liquids with ice;
  8. Wash your hands frequently as the virus can live on your hands for only 5-10 minutes, But during that time, you can rub your eyes, touch your face unwittingly and so on. Experts recommend that you wash your hands for 20 seconds with soap and water and you scrub hard to keep yourself safe from germs, including those from COVID-19;
  9. You should also gargle with a simple solution of salt in warm water as a prevention;
  10. Drink plenty of water.

Stages of coronavirus

  1. It will first infect the throat, so you’ll have a sore throat lasting three to four days;
  2. The virus then blends into a nasal fluid that enters the trachea and then the lungs, causing pneumonia. This takes another five or six days;
  3. With the pneumonia comes high fever and difficulty in breathing;
  4. The nasal congestion is not like the normal kind. You feel like you’re drowning. It’s imperative you then seek immediate attention.

Thank you for your understanding and cooperation as we work together to keep everyone safe..
