"My job as Head Housekeeper at Golden Bear Cottages in Big Bear Lake includes making sure our cabins are absolutely as clean as possible for our guests. To accomplish this my bosses introduced me to the ultraviolet light inspection system from "Rest Assured Corp". and daily use of "Effersan". Constant use of this system checks to make sure the housekeepers clean deeper than the normal surface cleaning you find in most hotels. They make sure any problem is corrected before guests check into their cozy Golden Bear Cottages cabins. To our knowledge, Golden Bear Cottages resort is the only hotel, resort lodging or cabin property in Big Bear Lake to take the time to use this revolutionary Rest Assured Light Inspection and Effersan System... and I should know, because over the past 20 years I have been a Housekeeping Supervisor at 3 other top Big Bear hotels. Golden Bear Cottages resort: the best family cabins, and best vacation rentals for families Big Bear.

Sincerely, Nora Valenzuela - Head Housekeeper

Covid-19 vaccine from Pfizer and Moderna approved by the FDA for use and are being given widely now!
News comes days after the pharmaceutical companies released positive findings from their phase three trials.
Large-scale (Phase 3) clinical trials are also in progress in the United States with the following companies:
  • AstraZeneca's COVID-19 vaccine is ready for approval. Janssen's and Novavax's COVID-19 vaccine soon. 

News from July 14, 2020 - Two hair stylists in Springfield, Mo., broke the cardinal rule of infection control: Despite having respiratory symptoms, one went to work and saw clients for eight days, when she learned she had tested positive for Covid-19. Her colleague also developed symptoms, three days after her co-worker, and also kept working until she tested positive, two days after the first stylist. Together, they saw 139 clients, with appointments for hair cuts, shaves, and perms lasting 15 to 45 minutes.

Yet when the local health department identified and contacted the 139 clients, asking them to self-quarantine for 14 days and checking in daily about whether they had developed Covid-19 symptoms, not a single one (of the 104 who agreed to be interviewed) did. Of the 67 who consented to a swab test, every one tested negative. There was one other notable fact about the case: Both stylists and every client had worn a face covering.

This case, described on Tuesday in Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report, adds to the near-universal scientific consensus that, more than any of single action, face coverings can prevent the transmission of the coronavirus that causes Covid-19.
