COVID-19 and More...Local Update
November 4, 2020
Happy #Humpday and #Wildlife Wednesday! Thank you to the Monterey Bay National Marine Sanctuary (MBNMS) for sharing this great photo of a breeching humpback whale. Per the MBNMS on Twitter, they are true performers as they can be seen breeching out of the water and slapping their flukes on the surface. These majestic giants are easily recognizable by the white spots on their tail flukes. Photo credit: Doug Croft

WHO Provides Tips for Navigating the Flood of COVID-19 Information
We are all being exposed to a huge amount of COVID-19 information on a daily basis, and not all of it is reliable. Due to COVID-19, most of us have a new word in our vocabulary: epidemiology. It is the branch of medical science that deals with the ways diseases are transmitted and can be controlled in a population. Now it is time to learn another new word: infodemiology. All of this is called the infodemic: a flood of information on the COVID-19 pandemic. Infodemiology is the study of that information and how to manage it. Check out the World Health Organization's (WHO) website for seven steps you can take to navigate the wave of information, decide who and what to trust, and help stop the spread of misinformation.
To all those local heroes who worked the polling stations, and counted (and continue to count) votes during this election in a time of a pandemic, we salute you and appreciate your commitment to serving your community.
