What’s Happening Today – Feb. 5, 2018
Today on DelmarvaLife:
There’s one word that describes this year’s flu season: bad. If you haven’t had it yet, consider yourself lucky, but flu season is far from over. We get a mid-season update on what is now being called an “epidemic” in the United States. Have we seen the worst yet? Is it too late to get vaccinated? Communicable Disease Program Supervisor, Olivia Butler, with the Wicomico County Health Department is here with the answers.
- Anyone with a cold, cough, fever, or other flu-like symptom, is asked to remain home and avoid visiting patients.
- PRMC is restricting children under the age of 12 from visiting.
- People with appointments are asked to avoid bringing children under the age of 12 to their appointments, unless the appointment is for the child.
What if, however, you want to visit your friends and neighbors? That’s when you need to take “illness etiquette” into consideration. Our etiquette expert, Grace Foxwell Murdock, owner of Professional Grace, sorts it all out for us.
We also sit down with Mrs. Camden, Delaware, Kimberly Phillips. She’s an inspiration to all, not just because of who she is, but because of the messages she spreads. Kimberly, like millions of other people, creates YouTube videos about everything, from how to take professional photos, to suicide prevention, and people are watching. Kimberly currently has more than 42,000 subscribers. We sit down with her to hear more about her platform, as she prepares to compete in the Mrs. Delaware America 2018 Pageant.
Lieutenant Tim Robinson, with the Wicomico County Sheriff’s Office, stops by with another list of Most Wanted Monday. If you recognize anyone on the list, call Crime Solvers of the Lower Eastern Shore at 410-548-1776for your chance to pocket some cash!
We are still in the thick of winter, but it’s not too cold to run a 5K, especially if you add dessert. Delaware Technical Community College‘s Chocolate 5K will not only please your taste buds, but it will also benefit a few fortunate students who want to further their education. DelmarvaLife’s Sydney Whitfield tells us more.
