Although, they say they are not aware of the exact number of tests awaiting results because tests are being performed at a variety of sites.So far, the county has recorded 53 negative lab reports.“The large number of negative results is a positive sign that community mitigation strategies are working,” officials said. “Your efforts are paying off, keep practicing social distancing and everyday precautions to decrease the spread of illness.” From the beginning, the county has said its goal is to identify new cases quickly and prevent or limit secondary exposures to ensure public health and safety.Public health nurses conduct epidemiologic investigations per public health standards and in conjunction with NYSDOH epidemiologists to determine who may have been exposed to an individual confirmed by lab testing to have COVID-19.“In all three of the confirmed cases in Chautauqua County to date, the individual and all household contacts were identified and ordered in mandatory quarantine and all proximal contacts were identified and ordered into precautionary quarantine,” said officials. “If a broader potential exposure would have been identified, it would have been publicized.”Isolation and quarantine orders by the public health director are as follows:Mandatory Quarantine*:         11*confirmed positive COVID-19 case or a household contact of a confirmed positive COVID-19 casePrecautionary Quarantine*:    25*travel history to CDC level 3 country or proximal contact of a confirmed case of COVID-19.Mandatory Isolation*:              46* symptomatic of COVID-19 and pending COVID-19 lab testNursing homes, long-term care facilities, local hospitals, the federally qualified health center, and local physician practices in Chautauqua County are active partners and have been taking steps to assess and improve their preparedness for responding to COVID-19.  Their comprehensive response plans include plans for:Rapid identification and management of ill residents and patientsConsiderations for visitors and staffSupplies and resourcesEducation and trainingSurge capacity for staffing and equipment and suppliesSick leave policiesThese critically important providers of healthcare services need your help.  It is imperative that everyone abide by their visitation restrictions. Avoid visiting those most at risk; call instead.“The ONLY way we can protect our community and healthcare system from becoming overwhelmed with illness as a result of the novel coronavirus is to avoid being exposed to the virus,” said officials. “People at high-risk for severe illness include people aged 65 years and older; in a nursing home or long-term care facility; with high risk conditions – diabetes, chronic heart /lung / renal disease; who are immunocompromised; who are pregnant.”Health officials ask the community to understand that our actions will help stop the spread of the virus.  Keep those most vulnerable safe.Cancel all group activitiesHave supplies and medications on hand to minimize going outTake everyday precautionsClean your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. Use hand sanitizer that contains as least 605 Alcohol if soap and water are not available.Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth.Put distance between yourself and others – at least 6 feet.Cover coughs and sneezes with your elbow or a tissue.

Paper Boats

by ,

first_imgSo I’m deep in the Olympic Peninsula of Washington right now which is about as far away from my home as you can get and still be in the continental U.S. For all you fanboys out there, this is Twilight country. Teenage vampires and lots of rain. The forest looks a lot like the Southern Appalachians, only bigger. The ferns are the size of cars, the trees are as big around as a house. Even the four leaf clovers are massive. But in a lot of ways it feels like home. Mostly because I’ve spent my days riding bikes, paddling and drinking beer, just like back home. I had the chance to paddle a chunk of Lake Crescent in a paper boat. Ok, it’s not made of paper. It’s called Oru Kayaks, and it’s actually made of foldable plastic, so you can fold it down into a box about the size of a crash pad, slide it into a backpack and hike it wherever you want, then unfold it and crease it into a kayak (like origami). Even if you don’t want to hike with the thing, it folds down so small that storage and transporting it to the lake or beach is a cinch. Imagine the ease of an inflatable and the performance of a hard boat. That’s what you get with an Oru. It’s badass. It’s important that the boat be badass because I’m not a badass paddler. An hour into the paddle, my shoulders are sore and I’m worn out. There’s something comforting about sucking at something on both sides of the country. It’s familiar, like finding a McDonalds in Asia. Sucky, but familiar. As for the lake, Crescent sits just inside Olympic National Park, a massive clear lake, surrounded by steep, lush green peaks. It’s an odd shade of blue, like the color of Gatorade Fierce. I paddled to rock beaches, swung on rope swings and peeped tall waterfalls way up on the slopes above. I might not have been paddling fast, or efficiently, but that didn’t make it any less fun. After the paddling, there was beer, mostly from Seattle. An Amber from Two Beers Brewing Company. An IPA from Pike Brewing. The adventure is great, the beer is great. Just like back home.last_img read more

Wells Fargo blasted by House Financial Services Committee

by ,

first_imgAs they blasted Wells Fargo CEO John Stumpf for his bank’s unfolding financial scandal, members of the House Financial Services Committee said Thursday they have expanded their probe to include financial regulators and possibly the banking industry as a whole.Committee ranking Democrat Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Calif.) went one step further, calling for Wells Fargo to be broken up.“It is too big to manage,” she said.“This is the beginning of our investigation,” House Financial Services Chairman Jeb Hensarling (R-Texas) said at the start of the committee hearing. “It is not the end.”“It is impossible at this time, based on the information we have, to draw firm conclusions about the performance of our regulators, but all this does raise serious questions,” he continued. “Maybe our Federal regulators deserve a pat on the back; but maybe they deserve a swift kick on the backside. We’ll find out which.” continue reading » 1SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblrlast_img read more

Tech Time: The step-by-step cyber incident response

by ,

first_img ShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr We never think it will happen to us, that a cyberattack like February’s credit union phishing campaign will be successful. But what if is? By now, you are probably aware that NCUA Part 748 Appendix A requires credit unions have a data breach incident response plan. But before you author or update your organization’s cyber crisis management plan, consider the steps of an incident response.Step 1: Attorney-Client PrivilegeData breaches may result in litigation against the credit union. Communication with an attorney for the purpose of obtaining legal advice regarding the incident is privileged, meaning it is generally not discoverable during litigation. Attorney-client privilege, afforded by the courts so that clients may speak freely with their counsel, is important when dealing with potential data breaches. Be sure to train your team on how it works and when it applies, and review and implement it in each incident response. continue reading »last_img read more

Finally! The connection between the Airport and the Ferry Port in Split by rail begins

by ,

first_imgThe end of the traffic collapse in Split is looming, with a large infrastructure project connecting the Airport and Ferry Port in Split, which will certainly revive Split. In the train that left Kaštel Stari for the city port of Split with a stop in Kopilica, two contracts were signed which are a precondition for relieving the traffic in the City Port of Split and its approaches.These are the Land Lease Agreement between the City of Split and HŽ Infrastruktura and the agreement with HŽ Cargo. On that occasion, the project of connecting Split Airport with the City of Split and the development of the intermodal hub of the new Split main station in Kopilica was presented, and the strategic project was adopted by the Government at a session held in Split this year.”Signed contracts allow us to rent a space in Kopilica where we will realize a temporary bus and train station”Said Mayor Andro Krstulović Opara and added that for this purpose, four million kuna has been proposed in the Budget for next year.Kopilica from next summer, the new traffic center of SplitThus, as early as next summer, Kopilica will be connected by train with the city port, which will run every 15 minutes, in January 2019 according to the plan.Otherwise, the full profile of this line will be from Split Airport, where it is necessary to upgrade another six kilometers of railway to the airport, while a temporary bus station with 19 platforms and a railway station will be built in Kopilica, four parking lots will be arranged, of which one intended for buses, mainly tourist buses. In the following period, another railway station will be built on the Square of the Croatian Fraternal Union. The budget for next year envisages four million kuna for this phase of the project. It is planned to apply for EU funds for the permanent project of relocating the bus and railway station.This year alone, more than three million passengers will pass through Split Airport, while the Ferry Port reached the number of almost 5,5 million passengers in September. So, it is about 9 million people who will have a much better connection between the Ferry and the Airport this way. Also, the citizens of Kaštela, Trogir and Solin should definitely be taken into account, who will use this line every day with a connection to the center of Split.This project should have been realized at least 10 years ago, if not much earlier, to think about the strategic development of the city as well as tourism, but better late than never.last_img read more

Denmark’s ATP, PFA snap up shares in DONG Energy

by ,

first_imgDanish pension giants ATP and PFA are to buy stakes totalling DKK3bn (€402m) between them in DONG Energy, the Danish state enterprise.ATP will invest DKK2.2bn and PFA DKK0.8bn.The deal will see the energy group issue new shares worth DKK11bn, with the remaining DKK8bn invested by two funds run by Goldman Sachs – Goldman Sachs Infrastructure Partners and Broad Street Energy Partners.DONG Energy was valued at DKK31.5bn before the capital increase. DONG Energy is Denmark’s biggest energy producer.It also operates gas-fired power stations in Norway, the Netherlands and the UK and is the European leader in offshore wind power, running offshore wind farms across Northern Europe.The agreement reduces the Danish state’s ownership interest in DONG Energy from 81% to 60%, and the total ownership interest of the existing minority shareholders – a small number of locally based energy companies – from 19% to 14%.ATP will own around 5% and PFA 2% of the total capital, with Goldman Sachs’s interest at 19%.However, this could be altered if any minority shareholders take up the offer to participate in the capital increase on equal terms with the new investors.ATP and Goldman Sachs will be represented on the board of directors.The agreement includes a commitment to seek an initial public offering (IPO) of DONG Energy when conditions are right.If an IPO has not been completed following the release of financial statements for the 2017 financial year, the new investors will have the option to sell their shares back to the Danish state on pre-agreed terms.The transaction should be concluded by the end of this year, following political approval and the consent of the Danish competition authorities.The capital increase is part of DONG Energy’s financial action plan announced in February.One of the objectives is to improve its net debt/earnings before interest, tax, depreciation and amortisation (EBITDA) to around 2.5 by end-2014.The ratio is currently 3.5.Claus Wiinblad, head of equities at ATP, said: “The investment offers interesting and attractive prospects, with a good risk/reward profile.“We fully appreciate that, to fulfil certain projects, especially in wind power, DONG Energy needs more capital, and we have confidence in their business plan.”The shares will make up less than 1% of ATP’s investment portfolio.Wiinblad added: “We will be long-term shareholders, but, after the IPO, the investment will be managed as any other, so may be adjusted accordingly.”In June, PFA announced it had bought DONG Energy’s onshore wind-power business in partnership with energy company SE for DKK760m.last_img read more
