Fun & Relaxing Pen & Pencil Doodling Activity Being Offered in EE
Anyone getting bored or feeling isolatated from COVID-19 shutdowns?   A fun new relaxing activity is being offered in EE on  Wednesday, September 9, 3-4 pm.  This activity puts focus on your personal thoughts and life experiences. No contests, no analysis, no judgment....just contemplation, relaxation and fun. You'll need to bring a pen or pencil and any kind of paper, plus your memories of people, places and things you've experienced. It will be lead by an EE volunteer, Lila Stoffel . It's based on her 15 yrs. of experience in a project designed to address issues of boredom, isolation and loneliness; issues we've all experienced during this time of the COVID virus. No fee, no prior experience needed. With respect to social distancing, the group size will be limited to 15; one person per table in the EE Ramada. Please wear a mask.  Call Lila if you'd like to attend to the first "Come and Try It" session. 218-731-7694.  All EE residents are welcome!
Drop Off Your Pop Can Tabs
Did you know that EE collects the tabs from aluminum cans for recycling?  There's a jar on the counter at the Ramada where you can deposit them. They go to help a handicapped gentleman in Green Valley.  Thanks for your help!

We don't have a Caring Connections report this week.  Hope that means we are all doing good...."healthy, wealthy, and wise."  Or, it might mean that every day is running together and most of the time we don't know what day it is.  As you can, check in on your neighbors.  We don't see our neighbors as much as we did in the Pre-COVID-19 days.  Now, we may not be aware of the needs a neighbor may have.  
Pima County Contact Tracing
Here's some information from Pima County on Covid-19 contact tracing....
"Local contact tracing efforts will be increasing significantly this week as the Pima County Health Department and Maximus Health Services, Inc.'s expanded workforce begins making calls.   The new contact tracing teams have completed training and will be starting calls this week. Calls will be coming from (833) 771-XXXX or (520) 724-XXXX. Caller ID will display as 'Pima Health Dept.'  If you get a call from a number beginning with these numbers, please answer. You will only receive a call if you have tested positive for COVID-19 (a Sourc"case") or are listed as contact of a case. You will be asked about your symptoms: if you have any, when they began, and where you have been since two days before they started. You will be reminded of isolation practices or what to look for if you do start to feel sick. You will be asked if you need help getting anything while in isolation (if applicable)."
Seeds from China
You have probably heard about people across the nation receiving unsolicited packages of seeds in recent weeks.  The packages appear to be coming from China, according to the  US Department of Agriculture (USDA) . If you received these seeds, the "USDA urges anyone who receives an unsolicited package of seeds to immediately contact their State plant regulatory official or  APHIS State plant health director. Please hold onto the seeds and packaging, including the mailing label, until someone from your State department of agriculture or APHIS contacts you with further instructions. Do not plant seeds from unknown origins."  Click here  for more information from the USDA. 
Excessive Heat
Yes, we are having even hotter-than-usual weather. KOLD News says July was the hottest ever on record! It's very easy to become over heated and dehydrated.  Here are some p recautions to prevent  heat  exhaustion or  heat  stroke:
  • Stay in air-conditioned buildings.
  • Limit outdoor activity during the hottest part of the day (mid-day).
  • Check on at-risk friends, family, and neighbors at least twice a day.
  • Drink water before, during, and after working or exercising outside.
