March 2020: COVID MASK-UP!


Mobilizing our local San Diegan community to wear cotton face masks and practice social distancing, to better protect each other from Covid-19, to save the N95s and hospital grade gear for our brave healthcare professionals; and supporting our local organizations like the Family Health Centers of San Diego (FHCSD) and the International Rescue Committee (IRC) by donating towards the production of homemade tailored cotton face masks, Made in San Diego by micro entrepreneurs and small business owners. 


DIY videos to make your own homemade cotton face masks. Here are 2 different styles presented by 2 different hospitals. Get creative and personalize them:

5 must read books while sheltering in place
https://www.bloomberg.com/opinion/articles/2020-03-21/coronavirus-five-must-read-books-for-a-scary-new-era?srnd=premium

My top pick:

“Guns, Germs, and Steel”: Long an established classic, this multi-disciplinary epic by Jared Diamond attempts to explain why some societies develop and grow wealthy while others do not, combining geography, history, biology and many other branches of knowledge in a grand global survey. The second word in the title is of the greatest interest at present; in the book, Diamond examines how epidemics came to shape society as well as looking at their biological causes. And he makes clear how Europeans came to supplant the native populations of North America so completely: “That might not have happened without Europe’s sinister gift to other continents — the germs evolving from Eurasians’ long intimacy with domestic animals.” I recently embarked on re-reading it, and I am already discovering that the events of the last few months make it read very differently.  This is the time to read or re-read.
