COVID BRIEFING, MARCH 04, 2021

  • Good afternoon Fowler Family!
  • COVID UPDATE:
    • Yesterday, Dallas County reported 718 new cases and 26 deaths
  • FOWLER UPDATES:

    • Immediately following the Governor’s announcement on Tuesday about removing restrictions that limited business capacity and removing the mask mandate, we got an email from Health and Human Services – all regulations will remain in place as it pertains to visitation, masks, COVID testing, etc.
      • This action has created quite a stir and unfortunately reactions could appear political
      • Our decisions here at Fowler are not political and our continuation of protocols are not a statement for or against anything, or anyone; they are simply our best effort to protect our residents
      • FOWLER WILL CONTINUE TO REQUIRE MASKS and all visitation and delivery protocols will remain in place
      • Many businesses will continue mask mandates – Kroger joined a growing list of businesses, including Target and COSTCO, who will continue to require masks
        • “As an employer, grocery provider, healthcare provider and community partner, we have a responsibility to help keep our associates, customers, patients and communities safe.”
      • Dallas Regional Chamber has reminded its members that 80% of DFW residents have yet to receive a vaccination
      • There are many lists forming online of businesses in the area that will require masks; we encourage our staff, residents and families, to maintain your vigilance
    • Reminder – PNCC deliveries will return to PNCC effective Monday 3/8
      • Effective next Monday, families and professional delivery services will return making deliveries directly to the Eastside entrance of PNCC instead of the Administration Center
      • A person delivering items will not enter the building; the same process will continue at PNCC that has been in place at the Administration Center. All items must be labeled with the provided label and staff will bring the item in and deliver to a resident’s apartment
      • If you order from Amazon or other online services, be sure to confirm your delivery address is 1260 Abrams; earlier in the pandemic we had asked that you change your delivery address to 1234 – so be sure to change it back
    • Reminder – Team please always remember to wear you name badge and proper uniform – Your badge and uniform are what identifies you to our residents
  • WOMENS HISTORY MONTH:
    • March is Women’s History Month and we kicked it off on Tuesday with the story of Juliette Fowler and her sister Sarah Harwood.
    • Each briefing this month, we will shine a light on the extraordinary legacy of trailblazing American women and girls who have built, shaped and improved upon our nation
    • Today, we are going to tell the story of the iconic image, Rosie the Riveter
    • The first image now considered to be Rosie the Riveter was created by the American artist J. Howard Miller in 1942 and was titled “We Can Do It!” and had no association with anyone named Rosie
    • Howard Miller was an American graphic artist. He painted posters during World War II in support of the war effort, among them the famous “We Can Do It!” poster
    • The World War II wartime poster was created for Westinghouse Electric as an inspirational image to boost female worker morale
    • No more than 1,800 copies of the 17-by-22-inch “We Can Do It!” poster were printed.
    • It was not initially seen beyond several Westinghouse factories in East Pittsburgh Pennsylvania, and the midwestern U.S., where it was scheduled to be displayed for two five-day work weeks starting Monday, February 15, 1943
    • During the war, the poster We Can Do It, was not connected with the song “Rosie the Riveter” nor to the Norman Rockwell painting call “Rosie the Riveter”
    • It was displayed for the two weeks at Westinghouse and then disappeared for 40 years

    • The poster was rediscovered in the early 1980s and used to promote women’s empowerment. The image made the cover of the Smithsonian magazine in 1994 and was fashioned into a US first class-mail stamp in 1999
    • It has been used for political campaigns for several American politicians and was reworked in 2010 to celebrate the first woman becoming prime minister in Australia
    • The poster is one of the ten most-requested images at the National Archives and Records Administration
    • Westinghouse historians have shared that the poster was never shown to Westinghouse riveters – the Westinghouse women who were inspired by the original poster, were actually making helmets
    • So, who was “Rosie?”
      • Many women have claimed to be Rosie over the years
      • For many years, it was thought to be Geraldine Doyle who was captured in a photograph of a woman factory worker
      • Since 2015, the woman in the wartime photograph has been thought to be 20-year-old Naomi Parker who was working in early 1942 before Doyle had graduated from high school
    • Today, the image has become very widely known, far beyond its narrowly defined purpose during WWII. It has adorned T-shirts, tattoos, coffee cups and refrigerator magnets.
    • Regardless of its origins or who it was, this historic poster has inspired and encouraged women and girls for almost 80 years
