🟢The Letter | August 2020

Hello, my friends.

Thank you so much for following Open-Minded Elixir (OME). We reached 522 followers on Facebook. Keep sharing the good words! Together, we will contribute to a brighter and healthier tomorrow.

🟢 Case You Missed It

This past month, OME was interested in a debate about the face masks mandate and freedom. Anti-maskers seem to carry misconceptions about liberty. Indeed, since the beginning, we all support the hard work, commitments, and sacrifices of professional health workers during the pandemic. It is not without consequences for their own health.

School reopening is a really hot topic. Is it too early for in-person classes? In any case, the decision should take into consideration data reported and analyzed with a scientific process. Looks like several universities decided to switch back to fully online courses after a surge of new cases due to student gatherings. Interestingly, more evidence seems to demonstrate that kids can carry a high load of the virus without exhibiting severe symptoms, but with the risk of transmission.

Preventive measures like lockdown and social distancing, are effective to slow down or contain the spread of the virus. However, the lack of contact and interaction with others leads to mental health issues. Humans are social by nature after all.

🟢 Best of OME For You

🟢 That's All for Now, Folks!

Stay safe, mask up, keep your distance, and wash your hands frequently!

Sincerely Yours,

Julien Dimastromatteo.
