UPDATE: Tracy Simmons, the Trenton Special School District (TSSD) Director of Coordinated School Health and Holly Barnett, TSSD’s Social Worker, attended the LEPC (Local Emergency Planning Committee) meeting held Wedneday, March 11. Mike Duck from the Department of Health spoke about the Coronavirus. These are points made at thsat meeting:

  • Starts with fever followed by dry cough (usually no mucus related symptoms i.e. sore throat, etc.)
  • can develop into shortness of breath and pneumonia about a week after onset
  • spread person to person within 6 feet of a person's sneeze or cough - droplets from infected person entering nose/mouth/eye membrane of people around them, not airborne, but still no clear answer on surface contact leading to a diagnosis
  • death rate is 1-2% with average age 80 and increased risk to those with other health factors (cardiovascular disease, COPD, cancer, etc.)
  • in US as of this morning - around 1000 diagnosed cases, 31 deaths, 37 states; compared to the flu with 32 million diagnosed cases and 18,000 deaths
  • in TN - 7 cases (1 in Shelby, 1 in Davidson, 1 in Sullivan, 4 in Williamson). NOTE: There are, of course, already more now.
  • encouraging continued/increased good health habits with handwashing and minimizing exposure to sick people; stay home if sick, etc.
  • if cases diagnosed closer to home, will be up to organzation/business to decide whether to shut down or not; there will not be a directive from emergency management folks.
  • confirmed case patient and family members will be quarantined for 14 days.
  • some nursing homes are closing to visitors; others are screening (taking temperatures, questions about travel) as visitors enter
  • Info line 1-877-857-2945 open from 10am - 10pm

STEM at Peabody

STEM students are busy at work around Peabody High School. STEM 1 student Chase Minton sought to give back to the cafeteria staff who take care of the students daily. He wanted to create something that would be functional and useful for the staff. He chose to construct a hanging rack for multiple uses. The staff can now easily hang up jackets and other belongings as they come into work while easily grabbing aprons for their shifts. Chase even went a step further and personalized each space for the ladies who make up the cafeteria staff, adding their names to each space. He was able to utilize the STEM lab's 3-D Printer in The Cube, a maker's space designated for students to independently work on projects. Chase says he and other students have other plans to help even more faculty members around the school.
