Coronavirus on Surfaces: What You Should Know


April 1, 2020 — Many emergency room workers remove their clothes as soon as they get home — some before they even enter. Does that mean you should worry about COVID-19 transmission from your own clothing, towels, and other textiles?

While researchers found that the virus can remain on some surfaces for up to 72 hours, the study didn’t include fabric. “So far, evidence suggests that it’s harder to catch the virus from a soft surface (such as fabric) than it is from frequently touched hard surfaces like elevator buttons or door handles,” wrote Lisa Maragakis, MD, senior director of infection prevention at the Johns Hopkins Health System.

1803 – Thomas Jefferson, in secret communication with Congress, sought authorization for the first official exploration by the U.S. government.


Jefferson sends secret letter to Congress, Jan. 18, 1803 On this day in 1803, President Thomas Jefferson sent a secret letter to Congress, seeking financing for a transcontinental exploration that became the Lewis and Clark expedition of 1804-1806.

Sign and send the petition: Cut child poverty. Restore and extend the child tax credit with Build Back Better Act


On December 15, families received their last monthly payment of the federal child tax credit. Because the Senate has not yet passed the Build Back Better Act, it was the last one.

This wildly successful measure cut child poverty by over 25%. Surveys have shown that families overwhelmingly used the money on basic necessities like food, housing and utilities—and some were even able to start planning for emergencies.

But now, an estimated 10 million children will slip back into poverty because the child tax credit has expired. All of the progress accomplished in a brief period can be undone.

The Senate needed to pass the Build Back Better Act before December 28 in order to prevent payment gaps. Due to political shenanigans, this did not happen—but if they act fast, we can restore it.

Now is the time to get angry, and demand that the child tax credit be restored and extended. Children are slipping back into poverty as we speak.

Sign and send the petition to Senate Democrats: Cut child poverty. Restore and extend the child tax credit, and pass the Build Back Better Act immediately. We are counting on you.

** 001-2022Interstate Meat Dist. Inc., Recalls Ground Beef Products Due To Possible E. Coli O157:H7 Contamination (Jan 6, 2022)

** Buprenorphine: Drug Safety Communication -FDA warns about dental problems with buprenorphine medicines dissolved in the mouth to treat opioid use disorder and pain

AUDIENCE:Dentistry,Anesthesiology, Patient, Health Professional, Pharmacy

ISSUE: The FDA is warning that dental problems have been reported with medicines containing buprenorphine that are dissolved in the mouth. The dental problems, including tooth decay, cavities, oral infections, and loss of teeth, can be serious and have been reported even in patients with no history of dental issues. Despite these risks, buprenorphine is an important treatment option for opioid use disorder (OUD) and pain, and the benefits of these medicines clearly outweigh the risks.

The FDA is requiring a new warning about the risk of dental problems be added to the prescribing information and the patient Medication Guide for all buprenorphine-containing medicines dissolved in the mouth.

For more information about this alert, click on the red button Read Alertbelow.

BACKGROUND:Buprenorphine was approved in 2002 as a tablet to be administered under the tongue to treat OUD. In 2015, buprenorphine was approved as a film to be placed inside the cheek to treat pain. The buprenorphine medicines that are associated with dental problems are tablets and films dissolved under the tongue or placed against the inside of the cheek.

** Jan. 6, 2022 – Interstate Meat Dist. Inc., a Clackamas, Ore., establishment, is recalling approximately 28,356 pounds of ground beef products that may be contaminated with E. coli O157:H7, the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) announced today.

The raw, ground beef items were produced on Dec. 20, 2021. The products subject to recall and the labels can be viewed here.    

The products subject to recall bear establishment number “EST. 965” inside the USDA mark of inspection or printed next to the time stamp and use or freeze by date. These items were shipped to retail locations in Arizona, California, Nevada, Oregon, Utah, Washington and Wyoming.                       

The issue was reported to FSIS after a retail package of ground beef was purchased and submitted to a third-party laboratory for microbiological analysis and the sample tested positive for E. coli O157:H7.  FSIS conducted an assessment of the third-party laboratory’s accreditation and methodologies and determined the results were actionable.

Anyone concerned about an illness should contact a healthcare provider. E. coli O157:H7 is a potentially deadly bacterium that can cause dehydration, bloody diarrhea and abdominal cramps 2–8 days (3–4 days, on average) after exposure the organism. While most people recover within a week, some develop a type of kidney failure called hemolytic uremic syndrome (HUS). This condition can occur among persons of any age but is most common in children under 5-years old and older adults. It is marked by easy bruising, pallor, and decreased urine output. Persons who experience these symptoms should seek emergency medical care immediately.

The products subject to recall bear establishment number “P-04203” inside the USDA mark of inspection. These items were shipped to retail and restaurant locations, as well as fundraiser programs in Minnesota and Wisconsin.      

The problem was discovered when the company determined that it used labels intended for a different product that does not contain wheat and reported the issue to FSIS.

There have been no confirmed reports of adverse reactions due to consumption of these products. Anyone concerned about an injury or illness should contact a healthcare provider.

FSIS is concerned that some product may be in consumers’ freezers. Consumers who have purchased these products are urged not to consume them. These products should be thrown away or returned to the place of purchase.
