Unquestionably, we are beset with fighting two viruses: COVID-19 and Systemic Racism. The murder of George Floyd brought world-wide attention to police brutality and racial injustices in America. Black men and women are often treated unfairly by the police and many institutions. Let's continue to Lift our Voices and Protest Peacefully for Liberty and Justice for all.

There are huge health, education, employment, and housing disparities in Black communities. The coronavirus impacts Blacks disproportionately because we're more likely to have underlying conditions such as cardiovascular disease (32 %) diabetes (30%) and chronic lung disease 18%) The disparities are unfair and immoral. We need leadership that is committed to fighting the coronavirus and racism with integrity, compassion, and empathy.

Humankind has not woven the web of life. We are but one thread within it. Whatever we do to the web, we do to ourselves. All things are bound together. All things connect.

Read the CDC's new guidelines for living daily life during the pandemic

From CNN's Maggie Fox

Stay apart from others, wear a face covering, and try not to share objects – that’s the latest, updated advice from the US Centers for Disease control and Prevention for living daily life during the coronavirus pandemic.

The CDC released its latest versions of guidelines for people Friday with a reminder that the virus is still spreading.

“We know the pandemic is not over,” Dr. Jay Butler, CDC’s deputy director of infectious diseases and Covid-19 response incident manager, told a media briefing.

The guidelines use everyday language and straightforward advice:

  • “In general, the more closely you interact with others and the longer that interaction, the higher the risk of COVID-19 spread,” they read. “So, think about: How many people will you interact with? Interacting with more people raises your risk,” they add.

  • “Being in a group with people who aren’t social distancing or wearing cloth face coverings increases your risk. Engaging with new people (e.g., those who don’t live with you) also raises your risk,” they add.

  • “Some people have the virus and don’t have any symptoms, and it is not yet known how often people without symptoms can transmit the virus to others.”

  • The CDC advises keeping six feet apart from others when possible. “The closer you are to other people who may be infected, the greater your risk of getting sick,” the CDC said.

  • The agency also advocates for face coverings, especially if it will be difficult to keep six feet apart from another person.

“It’s important that you and the people around you wear a cloth face covering when in public and particularly when it’s difficult to stay 6 feet away from others consistently,” the CDC said. “Choose outdoor activities and places where it’s easy to stay 6 feet apart, like parks and open-air facilities.”

Physical barriers such as plexiglass screens can also reduce the risk of spreading virus, the CDC said.
