What a great idea, and one to share from neighborhood to neighborhood, town to town and city to city! We hope that such a triumphant resounding celebration of our risen Lord will be heard throughout our state, our nation and the world despite our own neighborhood church doors being closed.

The following as been shared a number of times on Facebook, purportedly from a retired respiratory therapist. While we are not health professionals, the information and advice seems pretty sound and reasonable, but use your own discretion:

PASSING ALONG CORONA ADVISE FROM A RETIRED RESPIRATORY THERAPIST: for people experiencing mild to moderate respiratory symptoms with or without a COVID19 diagnosis

Since they are calling on Respiratory therapist to help fight the Corona virus, and I am a retired one, too old to work in a hospital setting. I'm gonna share some common sense wisdom with those that have the virus and trying to stay home. If my advice is followed as given you will improve your chances of not ending up in the hospital on a ventilator. This applies to the otherwise generally healthy population, so use discretion.

1. Only high temperatures kill a virus, so let your fever run high. Tylenol, Advil. Motrin, Ibuprofen etc. will bring your fever down allowing the virus to live longer. They are saying that ibuprophen, advil etc will actually exacerbate the virus. Use common sense and don't let fever go over 103 or 104 if you got the guts. If it gets higher than that take your tylenol, not ibuprophen or advil to keep it regulated. It helps to keep house warm and cover up with blankets so body does not have to work so hard to generate the heat. It usually takes about 3 days of this to break the fever.

2. The body is going to dehydrate with the elevated temperature so you must rehydrate yourself regulaly, whether you like it or not. Gatorade with real sugar, or pedialyte with real sugar for kids, works well. Why the sugar? Sugar will give your body back the energy it is using up to create the fever. The electrolytes and fluid you are losing will also be replenished by the Gatorade. If you don't do this and end up in the hospital they will start an IV and give you D5W (sugar water) and Normal Saline to replenish electrolytes. Gatorade is much cheaper, pain free, and comes in an assortment of flavors

3. You must keep your lungs moist. Best done by taking long steamy showers on a regular basis, if your wheezing or congested use a real minty toothpaste and brush your teeth while taking the steamy shower and deep breath through your mouth. This will provide some bronchial dialation and help loosen the phlegm. Force your self to cough into a wet wash cloth pressed firmly over your mouth and nose, which will cause greater pressure in your lungs forcing them to expand more and break loose more of the congestion.

4. Eat healthy and regularly. Gotta keep your strength up.

5. Once the fever breaks, start moving around to get the body back in shape and blood circulating.

6. Deep breath on a regular basis, even when it hurts. If you don't it becomes easy to develope pneumonia. Pursed lip breathing really helps. That's breathing in deep and slow then exhaling through tight lips as if your blowing out a candle, blow until you have completely emptied your lungs and you will be able to breath in an even deeper breath. This helps keep lungs expanded as well as increase your oxygen level.

7. Remember that every medication you take is merely relieving the symptoms, not making you well.

8. If your still dying go to ER.
I've been doing these things for myself and my family for over 40 years and kept them out of the hospital, all are healthy and still living today.
Thank you all for sharing. We gotta help one another.

As most know, the state stay-at-home order takes effect today at 5 pm.

Shown is a link to Governor Roy Cooper's Executive Order

https://files.nc.gov/governor/documents/files/EO121-Stay-at-Home-Order-3.pdf

Essential businesses will be allowed to remain open and residents will be able to obtain goods and services as needed from those businesses.

Residents are allowed to to take care of, or assist, family members or friends who need help, but basic visitation is discouraged during this time. The order also allows for an individual to transport a family member or friend in need.

The order gives authority to law enforcement and district attorneys to enforce against violators for 30 days. Those found to be in violation could face a charge of Class 2 misdemeanor, which in North Carolina carries a maximum penalty of 60 days in jail and a $1,000 fine.

How to make a homemade mask

SPECIAL REPORT—For several months, we were inundated with videos and photos of people in other countries wearing surgical masks as the novel coronavirus swept Asia and Europe. Most people were told to stop buying masks and that they wouldn’t help in an outbreak of the virus.

Such research findings are not absolute, however, and in many cases, wearing a surgical style mask is regarded as better than nothing. Most health professionals caring for those sick with COVID-19 are wearing such masks when the N95 masks are not available. Even if you can find them, buying masks now is discouraged due to a shortage of the lack of these items in hospitals and medical clinics. So, what can you do if you have no masks and wish you had ordered early? Simple. Make your own!

For this nifty craft, you’ll need two paper towels and two rubber bands of decent diameter and not too tight, and a stapler if you have one. (You may see where this is going already by now.)

Step 1: You will make accordian-like small folds in your paper towel length ways across the entire surface until you have made multiple, small folds in the paper towel.

Step 2: Next, you will take one rubber band to one end of the paper towel and pass it through the circle and then flatten the folded end over the rubber band. Now, simply take your stapler and place one or two staples through the paper towel.

Step 3: Repeat Step 2 on the other side of the paper towel.

Step 4: Your paper towel should be taking on the appearance of a flat surgical mask. You will now bring one rubber band on appropriate ear.

Step 5: Because you have folded the paper towel like an accordion, it will adjust to your face and nose with a little more comfort. Adjust and wear feeling somewhat protected, yet guilt-free for wearing a surgical mask that any one can make.

Can the paper towel mask keep a person from acquiring the coronavirus? The problem is basically paper towels are somewhat porous and it remains possible that a virus cell could slip through. However some research suggests that the paper towel mask may just protect about as well as a basic surgical mask.
