Gov. Evers announces expanded opportunities for certain nonessential businesses Gov. Tony Evers announced on Monday, April 27, 2020, that another turn of the dial in expanding allowed operations for nonessential businesses, providing even more opportunities for businesses to get back to work in a safe and responsible way. The Emergency Order, signed Monday, April 27, 2020, by Wisconsin Department of Health Services Secretary-designee Andrea Palm, allows nonessential businesses to do curbside drop-off of goods and animals. This will allow businesses like dog groomers, small engine repair shops, upholstery businesses, and others to safely open. Monday's order also allows outdoor recreational rentals, such as boats, golf carts, kayaks, ATVs, and other similar recreational vehicles. Additionally, automatic or self-service car washes would be able to operate. All of these businesses must operate free of contact with customers by providing payment options online or over the phone, enact proper disinfecting practices, and

operations must be able to be performed by one staff member. “No one wants to reopen our economy as much as I do, and we're working to do everything we can to make sure we can do so as soon as we safely and responsibly can. That's why today we announced a new order that, coupled with our Safer at Home order that went into effect last week, turns the dial a notch by allowing non-essential businesses to do more than they were able to do before,” said Gov. Evers. “This order means that every business across our state can do things like deliveries, mailings, curbside pick-up and drop-off, and it's

Wisconsin needs 600 contact tracers

State making progress on hiring and training, but still short of 1,000-person goal. Expanding contact tracing is one of six key criteria identified in Governor Tony Evers' Badger Bounce Back plan. The process, intended to contain the spread of a disease, is used to identify past contacts and alert people that they should be tested. “Contact tracing is nothing new to public health people, we have been doing this for centuries,” said state Department of Health Services (DHS) Deputy Secretary Julie Willems Van Dijk during a media briefing on Tuesday, April 28, 2020. The process begins with a case investigation and then transitions to contacting those that may have had contact with the individual. But the scale of the COVID-19 pandemic is challenging local public health departments and the state is moving to help them. Evers’ plan calls for 1,000 contact

The bounce-back plan benchmark calls for anyone that tests positive to be interviewed within 24 hours and their contacts to be interviewed within 48 hours. “It’s about isolating and boxing in the people with the virus rather than isolating and boxing in all of the people,” said Willems Van Dijk.

“Testing alone is not enough to contain the virus.” She said the department now has 259 contact tracers. “We are onboarding 78 more plus 50 who will start training this week,” said Willems Van Dijk. But if things stop there that would leave the state with 387 contact tracers, more than 600 short of the goal. (Continued on pg. 8)

Pastor Jamal Bryant pens open letter on Black churches' roles during a pandemic

Outspoken Atlanta mega-church leader Pastor Jamal Bryant of New Birth Missionary Baptist Church pens open letter discussing the Black churches' role during the COVID-19 pandemic Pastor Jamal Bryant, senior pastor of New Birth Missionary Baptist Church, recently penned an open letter discussing the role of the Black church during the COVID-19 pandemic and the steps that he and his congregation have taken during these troubling times to provide aid. “I am blessed to pastor at New Birth, where we have the capacity and more importantly, an engaged, committed church family who take seriously our mandate to

love, lead and live like Christ. Our goal is to be a church that does 93 percent or more of our ministry beyond the walls of our beautiful sanctuary,” Bryant stated in the letter, as he discussed how a lot of 21st century churches are more concerned with what goes inside the church and now how to improve conditions for the people who reside outside of the church's walls. Bryant also pointed out that New Birth was able to provide meals to fur-

June. This means people will be able to get out of the house for more than grocery shopping or walks. This will lead to an increase of interactions between citizens as society restarts. When the pandemic passes what will interactions in society look like if/when everyone is still wearing surgical masks? The COVID 19 crisis has

led to a boom in surgical masks. Many citizens are forced to wear these masks when interacting with other people. Surgical masks will probably be a common sight for months after the pandemic is over. People will still be wary of others and surgical masks make people feel comfortable about being around others.

Pro-Tip of the week: Self-care

We all could use a good tip every now and then. Especially now , with the Shelter at Home order still in effect, many of us have become our own hairstylists, chefs, and home repair experts. As such the Milwaukee Times Weekly Newspaper is bringing you protips by industry professionals to help get through these tough times. As we stay home more, we find ourselves moving about much less. Movement is vital to the health of your muscles and joints and in preventing stiffness in your body. Plan to ‘move about’ each day on a regular schedule: morning, afternoon, and evening. As a yoga instructor, I advise clients to perform very simple acts of intentional movement such as forward folds and angel arm swings while using the rhythm of your breath—do this for 15 minutes, 3 times daily. This kind of activity will nourish your natural energy channels to awaken sluggishness which often is the forerunner of ‘dis-ease’. So, get moving and claim your right to a healthy life. Join us in our Virtual Yoga Studio and connect with our yoga community. Virtual Studio Membership is free. Check out our schedule at www.zenzenyogaarts.com. Hope to see you in our Zoom room very soon.

In the letter, Bryant shares his inspiration for putting his thoughts to pen involving a recent article on Newsone.com which “Black pastors among wealthy preachers accused of not donating to Coronavirus relief,” in addition to the backlash he and his church received after partnering with a telemedicine firm and a community health clinic to provide coronavirus testing to the metro Atlanta community.

It will be interesting to see how surgical masks will look on wait staff at restaurants. Imagine sitting in a nice eatery and having the waiter or waitress standing over you with a surgical mask on. Shopping at malls or big retail stores will be similar to grocery shopping, which never stopped. You will see people walking through the mall wearing surgical masks or scarfs over their faces. People will be wary of others who are not wearing masks like they are now during the pandemic. Customer service may suffer in shoe stores or any store that a person has to interact with store personnel. How can you express sincerity as a salesperson with your face covered? Also shoppers may be wary of trying items on to check fit which will lead to lower sales or massive returns. Will shoppers even want to purchase items that have been handled by others after COVID 19? The nightlife will be impacted severely by the pandemic. Bars and clubs will be changed unless people forget COVID 19 existed. Can you imagine going out to meet some friends and possibly meet new people in a place where you can’t see people’s faces? It is okay for those people you know but how can you talk to a new

person if you can’t see their face? Also how will you enjoy your libations if you have to keep taking your surgical mask down? Internet dating may become bigger than it already is. You can tell your internet date to meet you at a place and you’ll be the one in the red surgical mask by the front entrance. Sports will be changed. Usually there are thousands at a sporting event. Pro sports generate huge profits off people going to live games to watch the spectacle. This will change because the option of being one of 50, 000 screaming fans packed in one area will be shunned by many. It is kind of hard to scream with a surgical mask on your face. Seats in many stadiums are close together and social distancing will be in everyone’s minds for at least a year. This means many people will be renewing their satellite television services and adding more sports channel packages. The US has forever been changed by the COVID 19 pandemic. Beaches, parks, festivals and other normal social gatherings will be viewed differently from now on. Surgical masks and social distancing will be around for the duration along with subtle paranoia. One thing is certain. Mask or no, it will be good to be able to get out of the house and enjoy the world again.

This week’s article will address 7 challenges to creating family as well as share the 5 communication strengths in healthy families. The National Step-family Resource Center published an article titled: Quick Steps: Information to Help Your Step-family Thrive.1 The focus was on communication in step-families. The article is based on research by Dr. Tamara Golish, a Pennsylvania State University researcher who actually became curious as to how people in step-families communicate with each other. Dr. Golish found that of the step-families she studied, most faced one or more of these 7 challenges:

More communication strengths of healthy step-families: In addition to the 5 communication strengths listed above, healthy step-families, according to the National Step-family’s article, share these characteristics: • Most parents in strong step-families are able to maintain a cordial relationship with their former spouse. This contributes to positive communication between children and their parents. • In well-functioning step-families, the remarried couple models healthy communication and commitment to their marriage for their children. • Strong step-families often use compromise to resolve problems.

Contact tracers needed (Continued from pg. 1) As testing grows and the disease spreads, the number of people needing to be contacted also grows exponentially. One new confirmed case can result in dozens of contacts. “We are moving to contact everyone who has a test, even before they know the results,” she said. Part of scaling up includes exploring ways to conduct initial interviews via text message or the web. She said the state is hiring people with public health experience — “people who are good with people, who can conduct an interview, who can be meticulous in terms of data collection,” said Willems Van Dijk. “We also need people with a sense of empathy. This is not an easy job

right now.” She said contact tracers call people who are very ill or family members of those who passed away from the disease. “We are also surrounding our contact tracers with people who have social service skills,” she said. That includes working to make sure people have the support they need to stay home when asked to, including the ability to get groceries or tend to other family members.

The questions asked as part of the initial investigation will also change over time. One question — whether the individual voted in-person for the April 7th election — will be dropped on May 1st. A formal report on the number of individuals that tested positive and had exposure to a voting site will be released in May by MHD.

It was usually told to us that the shot would prevent us from getting the disease and it was better for our overall health. But as we’ve grown older, and learned more about vaccines and the history surrounding them, many are a little suspicious of getting any type of vaccines now. African Americans, who are being infected and killed by COVID-19 at a much higher rate than whites, are 40 percent less likely to get the flu shot vaccine, for example, a study out last year showed. Some suggest African Americans will be reluctant to get the coronavirus vaccine when one is released. A historical distrust of the health care system, which has far fewer physicians of color and a record of discrimination and mistreatment, gets much of the blame, experts say. So in order for us to find out if vaccines are needed and who should or shouldn’t take them, we first must understand how they work. According to the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia Vaccine Education Center, vaccines are made of dead or weakened antigens. They can’t cause an infection, but the immune system still sees them as an enemy and produces antibodies in response. After the threat has passed,


many of the antibodies will break down, but immune cells called memory cells remain in the body. When the body encounters that antigen again, the memory cells produce antibodies fast and strike down the invader before it’s too late. Vaccines also work on a community level. Some people can’t be vaccinated, either because they are too young, too old, have underlying risk factors or because their immune systems are too weak, according to the CDC. But if everyone around them is vaccinated, unvaccinated people are protected by something called herd immunity. In other words, they’re unlikely to even come in contact with the disease, so they probably won’t get sick. According to the World Health Organization, NO vaccine is 100 percent effective. For reasons related to the individual, not all vaccinated persons develop immunity. Most routine childhood vaccines are effective for 85 percent to 95 percent of recipients. Here’s a little history to give you perspective: The first influenza vaccine was approved for military use in the United States in 1945 and civilian use in 1946. This whole-virus inactivated influenza A and B vaccine had been tested in military recruits and college students before approval. Thomas Francis Jr., MD, and Jonas Salk, MD, who would become closely associated with the poliovirus vaccine, were key investigators on much of the influenza vaccine research. Influenza vaccine development was a high priority for the U.S. military after the deaths of approximately 1 in every 67 soldiers from influenza during the 19181919 pandemic. There were many other vaccines before and after this, but the question still stands: who should NOT get vaccinated? Here’s a breakdown of each common vaccines: Influenza vaccine The influenza vaccine (also known as the flu shot) is developed twice a year to help protect against the flu. The following individuals should consult a medical professional before getting the influenza vaccination: • Anyone with severe, life-threatening allergies • Anyone who has ever had Guilliain-Barré Syndrome • Anyone who is feeling sick Tetanus vaccine The Td (or adult tetanus) vaccine is typically administered to adults who did not receive the tetanus vaccine as a child. Over a 7 to 12 month period, a person would receive a three-vaccine combination. The first would be the Tdap vaccine which protects against tetanus, diphtheria

and pertussis. The next two doses protect against tetanus and diphtheria, respectively. Those who should not receive the Td vaccine include: • Anyone who has had a life-threatening allergic reaction after previous tetanus or diphtheria vaccine dose (please consult a medical professional about any allergies before scheduling a Td vaccine) • Anyone who has had severe pain or swelling after a tetanus or diphtheria vaccine • Anyone who suffers from seizures or other nervous system problems. Hepatitis A and B vaccines Hepatitis A and B are both diseases that cause inflammation of the liver. Typically, you will have the option to get two separate vaccines or a combination vaccine that protects against Hepatitis A and Hepatitis B. The following people are at a higher risk of developing vaccine side effects: • Anyone who has had a severe allergic reaction to any vaccine components • Anyone who has had a severe allergic reaction to a previous dose of the hepatitis A or B vaccine • Anyone who is moderately or severely ill • Women who are pregnant • Anyone who is severely allergic to yeast HPV-Gardasil (human papillomavirus) HPV gets passed from one person to another during skin-to-skin contact with an infected part of the body. It can be spread through sexual contact. You cannot get HPV from toilet seats, swimming pools, or sharing food. But almost everyone who is not vaccinated will get HPV at some time in their lives. People who should not have the HPV vaccine are: • People with a yeast allergy • Pregnant women; however research has shown no significant effect on you or your baby if you have the vaccine and later find out you are pregnant • People with a bleeding disorder: they should talk to their doctor before having any vaccine •People with previous anaphylaxis (serious allergy) to a previous dose of the vaccine or any of the vaccine ingredients. Other common vaccines include: -MMR vaccine (measles, mumps, and rubella) -Polio vaccine -Rabies vaccine -Shingles vaccine For a complete list of vaccines and who should not be vaccinated, see the CDC’s guide to vaccines and immunizations at https://www. cdc.gov/vaccines/vpd/vaccines-age.html.

Coronavirus and the new American economy (part 2) By Solomon Ali, CEO of NDR Energy Group and Revolutionary Concepts

indispensable during a time when most products and services will be cut from the equation. Whether that is free delivery, discount packages, future incentive packages, extra services or penalty-free rescheduling; the old playbook no longer applies. Become flexible in your approach. If you are able, extend more favorable payment terms to gain more market share within your industry.

Part 2: How we brace for financial impact and minimize the fallout • Communicate with your creditors and debtors Explain where your company is at, discuss options and re-negotiate terms if you can. Inquire about extensions on payment terms, request waivers of late fees and penalties. The good news is that you are not alone. Tens of millions of people are currently in the same boat and your creditors know that. In many ways, this puts you in the driver's seat to renegotiate payment terms and obtain some forgiveness on penalties that would normally be imposed. At the same time, communicate with your company’s debtors and diligently collect monies owed to you. Be prepared to negotiate with customers and accounts who owe you money. Reach out to the current customers you do business with to gauge where they are at. Offer discounts and other payment incentives to get whatever liquid money you can upfront. For example, if a customer owes an outstanding balance of $1,000, make them an offer to pay you $700 now to settle the account. This will give you much needed cash in hand. Regarding new sales, companies should be all about solving customers' pain points right now.

• Form strategic alliances Companies should also look to industries that are thriving and communicate their desire to align and/or partner with other companies to leverage profitability, innovation and market share. Seek out companies that offer complimentary products or services and reach out to see how you can help one another. We are living through times where people are more emotionally receptive, because no matter what industry you are currently in, we are all feeling vulnerable right now. Entering into a strategic partnership with another company could mean selling a part of your company or even acquiring part of another company. A partner may have the ability to loan you capital in exchange for equity in your company. It could mean extending a sweetheart deal on something that you usually don't offer such favorable terms on. These ideas should be discussed with a mutual respect and understanding of your respective industries, needs and goals, and the current marketplace in which you are operating.

• Identify pain points and solve them Identify your customer or client "pain points" during • A few types of partnerthis time and strategize ways ships to solve them in a way that Joint venture – If you decould potentially make you cide to merge with another

The financial effects of coronavirus will be felt long after the pandemic is under control. We will feel ripples and aftershocks well into 2021 and perhaps throughout this decade. This means that business as usual is a losing proposition. Our economy will recover, albeit with a different spin than before. We will see a rise in consciousness about the way humans treat and consume animals, and we will begin to shift towards more of a cause-andeffect mentality. This means that industries that exploit animals for profit will begin to recede. Virtual networking and virtual meetings will become more and more commonplace, and the traditional sales meeting or boardroom meeting will happen less. We will also come back together and socialize in slightly different yet distinctive ways, with a return to more community-based activities. Local parks, places of worship, board games and general fellowship with one another will be newly discovered and offer a newfound charm. Employers will also become more accommodating of remote workers and flexible schedules, and will be more accommodating to sick leave and other dispensations that support employees' health and well-being. People will continue to seek out financing, but banks will be less inclined to offer loans for things like payroll, and more eager to finance investments in robotics, A.I. and other technology-related ventures. New industries will be born and created, and we will see a massive acceleration of A.I. and automation across most industries.
