The OLA Facebook page admins have been posting a nightly COVID-19 pandemic
resource list. We appreciate how well the lists have been received, and
this has provided the confidence to post one here. Last night's post had
categories that include news & health, mental health resources, masks &
mask making, spring into action, libraries, literary quotes, John Prine,
and self-care. Older posts can be read for mask making instructions from
household materials. Library workers can evaluate the resources for
themselves, take what they need, and leave the rest. We say this because we
are not experts, we are just trying to contribute and stay busy. (We are
generalists, and don't want to argue with anyone.) Below the signature is
last night's list, hopefully it renders legibly. We don't know how long
these lists will continue, but for now it's all we can do. A sign off one
evening from KGW news was 'Stay vigilant. Stay safe. Stay home.' Makes

Today is #WorldHealthDay! Today's coronavirus pandemic resource list's
categories are news & health, mental health resources, masks & mask making,
spring into action, libraries, literary quotes, John Prine, and self-care.
Here's a nice thought, "There is always something left to love." Gabriel
Garcia Marquez. Evaluate these sources for yourselves, and take what you
need and leave the rest.

"Parents, families and caregivers may be wondering about what age a child
should be to safely wear a mask. Cloth face coverings should not be placed
on children under age 2. It is very important that you never put a mask or
face covering on an infant (or an adult) who is not able to adjust or
remove the mask themselves. This could compromise their ability to breathe.

COVID-19." (CDC) https://tinyurl.com/uxphvl2

“And here I must observe again, that this necessity of going out of our
houses to buy provisions was in a great measure the ruin of the whole city;
for the people catched the distemper, on these occasions, one of another;”
― Daniel Defoe, History of the Plague in London

“that the infection was propagated insensibly, and by such persons as were
not visibly infected, who neither knew whom they infected or who they were
infected by.”
― Daniel Defoe, A Journal of the Plague Year

“here I cannot but take notice that the strange temper of the people of
London at that time contributed extremely to their own destruction.”
― Daniel Defoe, A Journal of the Plague Year

“But it seems that the government had a true account of it, and several
counsels were held about ways to prevent its coming over; but all was kept
very private.”
― Daniel Defoe, History of the Plague in London

“Another plague year would reconcile all these differences; a close
conversing with death, or with diseases that threaten death, would scum off
the gall from our tempers, remove the animosities among us, and bring us to
see with differing eyes than those which we looked on things with before.”
― Daniel Defoe, A Journal of the Plague Year, written by a citizen who
continued all the while in London

“It mattered not from whence it came;”
― Daniel Defoe, A Journal of the Plague Year
