COVID Briefing, August 18, 2020


  • Good afternoon Fowler Family!
  • COVID Update
    • Roughly 1.75% of all Texans have tested positive for COVID-19 so far
    • Of them:
      • More than 10,000 have died
      • 399,572 have recovered
      • At least 125,487 people across the state are considered active cases
    • Counties across the state are reporting large backlogs of data from Texas officials for the past few days due to a ‘coding error’
    • Sunday, Dallas County officials reported 161 new cases and an additional 5,100 cases from the past six months attributed to the backlog
      • 13 more people in March
      • 149 in April
      • 80 in May
      • 520 in June
      • 4298 in July
      • Another 603 in August so far
    • On Monday more backlogged cases were reported – 1850
    • Dallas County’s totals rose to 65,278 confirmed cases of COVID-19 and 829 deaths.
    • The combined new numbers raise the county’s cumulative total to 63,428 people who have tested positive since tracking began in March, with 825 deaths
    • Dallas County hopes to release more information about the backlog later today
    • What does this mean to us – there is a data collection dilemma at all levels which we cannot control. What we can control is our own behavior
    • At some point, we will be past this pandemic and the numbers will shake out
    • Meanwhile, we are going to just keep doing what we are doing
    • Teammates, you must continue to avoid spaces with more than 10 people
      • We are depending on each other to restrict travel and being in public spaces
    • Fowler family – stay vigilant with masks, hygiene and distancing
  • There are questions about why families cannot drop groceries off at the Porte Cochere at Jackson
    • We are still mitigating risk – our community is not open to visitors
    • We are still managing exposure from outside of our community
    • We have a lot of residents and cannot accommodate every family outside of the parameters we have setup
  • For those who experience breathing challenges in masks, we have learned a tip that I want to pass on – put one drop of peppermint essential oil on the side of your mask – the peppermint will open up your nose and those who are using this say it works very well
  • Mayor Eric Johnson has proclaimed tomorrow 8/19 as a Day of Prayer and Fasting to eradicate COVID. Chaplain Venessa will distribute our community prayer and we will read it together at noon. We will broadcast live from the chapel
  • Teammate Tuesday:
    • Today is Marylou Rodriguez’s birthday.  Happy birthday, Marylou!
    • Happy Anniversary to Angeline Silkowski! Her anniversary is on the 20th.  Wow, 6 years have flown by
    • Francisco Martinez joins the team tomorrow as a Facilities 2 technician.  Francisco most recently served as Generalist Operator Level 5 at James Hardie Building Products where he was since 2016.  Prior to that, he served at AEP as a Warehouse Supervisor and at International Extrusion Paint Line as a Specialist. Be sure to give Francisco a warm Fowler Family welcome when you meet him!
  • Thank you – and make it a great day on purpose!
