COVID Briefing, February 11, 2021


  • Good afternoon Fowler Family!
    • Yesterday, Dallas County reported 1231 new cases and 37 deaths
    • Tuesday, Dallas County reported 1303 and 30 deaths
    • Our losses this week include
      • 1 pregnant woman in her 20s
      • A woman in her 30s who had a recent reinfection with COVID after initial recovery 6 months earlier
    • As of yesterday, the number of hospital beds that were occupied by a COVID patient had dropped to 12.59% or 2491 patients. We have been averaging a 16% occupancy so it is our hope that there will be a continued reduction
    • FEMA is taking over the Fair Park Vaccination site as of 2/22 and will open another mega site at the AT&T stadium
      • Along with a mega site at the Houston stadium, this will bring an additional 10 thousand doses to Texas daily
    • Reuters published an article with the headline: “Vaccinated people need not quarantine post COVID-19 exposure, CDC says”
      • Reuters is a reliable news source, but this headline does not tell the full story
      • The fine print of the story is that this only applies if they have been vaccinated within 3 months and show no symptoms
      • We will be reviewing the CDC information in its entirety and will continue to approach our decisions with your greatest protection in mind
    • Gentry was on a statewide call on Tuesday with leaders from other long term care communities
      • Many are still not doing communal dining in any area of their community
      • Many are not doing any group activities; at Fowler we have social distanced and limited group sizes


  • Of course, the big story of the day is our weather and the terrible collisions on our highways
    • There was a 100+ car pileup on I-35 in Fort Worth that has resulted in at least 5 deaths and more than 35 injured
  • Thank you to the Fowler team that braved the ice to get here today

    • Keep your car full and your phone charged
    • Last night, the History channel premiered a Tuskegee Airmen: Legacy of Courage, a one-hour documentary on The Tuskegee Airmen and it was hosted by Robin Roberts of Good Morning America
    • Roberts, who is executive producer and narrator of the project, was drawn to the story because her of her father was selected to be one of the Tuskegee Airmen
    • Here is their story
    • The first class of Black fighter pilots in the U.S. began their training at the Tuskegee Institute of Alabama in the summer of 1941 at the same time segregation under Jim Crow Laws was enforced in states throughout the south
    • African-American recruits were rejected from serving in World War I
    • In 1939, Congress passed a law that designated funds for training African-American pilots
    • Robin Roberts father, Lawrence, was a 19 year-old student at Howard University when the new training program was announced and his mother, knowing his life long love of flying, petitioned her congressman for his appointment
    • Thus, began his 32-year career in a segregated military
    • The special honors these courageous men and their efforts to fight for a country that was fighting against their rights
    • they were put in a position to fail — many people wanted them to fail, didn’t want it to work. My father, he did not see limitations. He did not let his children. He thought anything and everything was possible.”
    • Their testing requirement were so high; they actually became an elite group
    • Their living conditions were poor – they faced extreme racism
    • Ultimately, they were called to action
    • In all 992 pilots were trained in Tuskegee from 1941
    • 355 were deployed overseas during World War II
    • 84 lost their lives
    • They flew almost 3000 combat missions
    • As a unit they were highly decorated:
      • 95 received distinguished flying crosses
      • 14 bronze stars
      • 744 air medals
      • 8 purple hearts
      • 1 silver star
    • The last of the Tuskegee Airmen passed away in 2016
    • This documentary preserves their legacy
