Coronavirus Rumor Control

Federal Emergency Management 3/21/20

The purpose of this FEMA page (https://www.-fema.gov/coronavirus-rumor-control) is to help the public distinguish between rumors and facts regarding the response to coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. Rumors can easily circulate within communities during a crisis, stay informed with our updated myth vs. facts related to the federal (COVID-19) response.

For more information on the coronavirus, please visit coronavirus.gov. You can also visit our coronavirus (COVID-19) response page for more updates on the federal response.

Myth: There is a national lockdown and the entire country will be quarantined for two weeks.

Fact: There is no national lockdown. As with all information online or shared via social media, it is important to verify the source of the information. You can find the latest information as well as links to additional resources at www.coronavirus.gov.

Myth: FEMA has deployed military assets.

Fact: No, FEMA does not have military assets. Like all emergencies, response is most successful when it is locally executed, state managed and federally supported. Each state's governor is responsible for response activities in their state, to include establishing curfews, deploying the National Guard if needed and any other restrictions or safety measures they deem necessary for the health and welfare of their citizens.

Myth: I need to stockpile as many groceries and supplies as I can.

Fact: Please only buy what your family needs for a week. It is important to remember that many families may be unable to buy a supply of food and water for weeks in advance. Consumer demand has recently been exceptionally high especially for grocery, household cleaning, and some healthcare products. Freight flows are not disrupted, but stores need time to restock.

Myth: I heard that the government is sending $1,000 checks. How do I sign up?

Fact: The U.S. Government is not mailing checks in response to COVID-19 at this time. Anyone who tells you they can get you the money now is a scammer. It's important that you only trust information coming from official sources. The Federal Trade Commission recently provided more information about this scam and other common COVID-19 related scams on their website.

Myth: Only those over 60 years of age and those with existing health problems are at risk from the Coronavirus.

Fact: It is an unfortunate rumor that only people over 60 years of age are at risk of getting this disease. According to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), those at higher risk include older adults and people with serious chronic medical conditions. However, symptoms can range from mild to severe with and may have different complications for each individual. The CDC has a list of COVID-19 symptoms you may experience. Please continue to follow the official information from the CDC.

"Smelling Like Dog"

It's a very gray day. Today is exactly the sort of day I am most grateful for dogs.

Walking in my neighborhood, everyone feels the need to share the latest dire news. Meeting in the street, we almost feel irresponsible if we don't express our concern and our dismay and our confusion. The people with dogs, however, have it easy.

Letters to the Editor!

Dear Editor,

Good Samaritan Care Clinic's Board of Directors met in a specially called business meeting on 3/17/20 to establish patient care guidelines and protocols during the COVID-19 epidemic. In an effort to minimize exposure risks to patients, community members, staff, and volunteers (many of whom are retired or near retirement age - placing them at an increased risk of infection with complications), the board has decided to make adjustments to program services. For now, GSCC will stop conducting Monday evening medical clinics and is canceling dental clinics scheduled for the upcoming month. The board and staff members will continue to monitor the recommendations of local, state, and federal agencies who are assessing the progression and severity of COVID-19. These measures are being implemented with elevated concern for patients who solely rely on the medical services (including laboratory services and prescription medication access) which Good Samaritan Care Clinic provides. For a period of time yet to be determined, GSCC will provide assistance to existing patients who need prescription refills called to local pharmacies. If a patient is not able to pay out of pocket for his/her prescription, GSCC will provide financial assistance even to the extent of paying for medications which are prescribed by GSCC practitioners (based upon the availability of funding). GSCC staff will also begin implementing tighter restrictions and guidelines for patients and other guests who drop in or visit the clinic through the week (per the National CDC directives on guidance for "social distancing"). Current patients of the clinic who have questions regarding the coronavirus or other health related issues or are in need of medication refills are encouraged to call the clinic at 417-934-6500. It is the desire of the clinic's board and staff to continue providing the best care possible under these difficult conditions. Good Samaritan Care Clinic will continue to monitor the recommendations of local, state, and federal agencies who are assessing the progression and severity of COVID-19.

Clinic staff and board of directors are concerned about the implications the temporary closure of GSCC and other local businesses will have on patients, many of whom will or have had their hours cut or eliminated for the time being. The financial stability of Good Samaritan Care Clinic which is completely funded by donations and grant funding is also at risk. As well as many additional nonprofits which provide vital community resources and services. Good Samaritan Care Clinic has had the privilege of providing medical and dental services to thousands from South Central Missouri in over 34,000 patients visits since 2004, and expresses its appreciation for the understanding and support of its community and patients.

Dear Editor,

As the threat of Covid-19 forces schools to close across the state, many are realizing just how vital teachers are in educating our future generations.

To help shine a positive light on teachers and thank them for their selfless efforts, Western Governors University (WGU) Missouri has announced it is once again launching its "Fund My Classroom" initiative, aimed at helping teachers throughout Missouri expand their curriculum and employ innovative techniques to engage and challenge students.

K-12 teachers in need of funding to support their planned innovative projects are encouraged to submit their proposals online at wgu.edu/fundmyclassroom by April 19. WGU will notify winners in May. Teachers do not have to be WGU students or alum to apply.

Jack's Fork Country Church

My apologizes for no church news this week.

We missed gathering together this week in our Church building, but we are still a Church, and will continue to operate in service, faith and prayer until we can assemble again.

Trust in the Lord, pray and read his word. God offers great promises in his word for security of the one who trusts in the Lord.

Psalm 91: 1-16

Eminence First Baptist Church
Website: www.fbceminence.org

Like most every other church, we had on-line services this morning. We enjoyed Bruce's songs, "In Times Like These", and "Lord, I Need You". In times like these we need our Anchor, Jesus Christ. Right now we need the Lord every minute of each and every day. God is with us and if we have faith we know that whatever happens, God is in control.

Our message this morning was based on Matthew 8:23-27, "Moving from Fear to Faith". Jesus and the disciples were in a boat on a lake, when a furious storm came up. Jesus was sleeping in the boat, the disciples were afraid, so they woke Him up, asking him to save them. He replied, "Oh you of little faith, why are you so afraid". Then he got up and rebuked the winds and the waves, and there was complete calm. The disciples were amazed. Why are we always amazed by God when he answers our prayers. Be in prayer, He hears and answers.

All of our weekly meetings have been cancelled at this time. Hopefully it won't be long before we can get back to our normal schedule.

Annie Armstrong Easter Offering is now being collected, our goal is $2,000 this year. The Community 5th Sunday Sing has been cancelled until a later date.

Prayer Requests,

Pastor Jeff and Darlene Spencer, Skylar Holley, Dave Kentch, Sr. Family, Jaylee Wisdom, Jonathan and Cari Miller, Sam Rayfield, Dwayne and Linda Mahan, JC Ray, Butch Spacek, Scott and Fran Bader, Joyce Hahn, Doc Napier, Dave Bond, Jim and Diane Larson, Charlie Bays, Kaye Spurgin, Ingrid Orchard, Revival and Renewal, Johnny Laughlin, Glenda Bates, Danny Ferguson, Doug Allen, Bill Wellinghoff and family, strong marriages, our community, our leaders, our schools, our youth, our military, our law enforcement.

At this time our Sunday morning services will be on line at 9:30 AM. Go to Pastor Paul Wellinghoff's Facebook page to see it live or to view it at a later time. The sermon is also posted on the Church

Facebook page: First Baptist Church Eminence.


The Eminence UMC is now in "tele-church" mode, a way to communicate and worship remotely yet personally, in these times of pandemic. Pastor David welcomed ten callers/computer log-ins this morning, the bell was rung, and prayer was offered, thanking God that he is "not limited by time and space." The hymn Blessed Assurance was played. Children's Minutes was brief, with the Pastor telling baby Griffey Brewer, watching with her parents, that Jesus loves you! Scriptures were read by the Hunts. Our Key Verse was from 3 John 1:2: "Beloved, I pray that all may go well with you and that you may be in health; I know it is well with your soul." This was the timely theme of the sermon. We were asked how we pray for ourselves and others during this tsunami of sickness. A prayer used by the Pastor and his wife is a four-fold prayer for protection: calling on the blood of Jesus against the forces against us and redemption by the blood of Jesus; a guard of angels and wall of fire, two Biblical references; and a hedge of protection, from the book of Job. Another way to pray is to use the authority of Jesus to banish harmful elements. Another, the laying on of hands. Miraculous results are witnessed from all these. We were read the powerful St. Patrick's Breastplate prayer, rousing and majestic and reassuring, partially "Christ be with me, Christ within me, Christ behind me, Christ beside me, ... Christ beneath me, Christ above me, in quiet, in danger " Joys and Concerns included Rhonda and Dick Hunt celebrating their 50th Anniversary and Jenni Dodson asking special prayer for son Briar Dodson as he undergoes his clinicals in his EMT training. No Fellowship Hall rentals will be made for the foreseeable future. We are grateful for our first responders during this time. So much selfless activity is happening all around us. Thanks go to the local Facebook help group, the local teachers for keeping the students up on their lessons, the schools providing meals for students, local groups making facemasks, and the Shannon County Health Center for excellent information updates. Continue to take care of each other. AN

West Eminence Christian Church

We have suspended gathering as a church until we are released again to do that. In the meantime we have started meeting by way of Zoom teleconference. If you did not receive an invitation to join us on Sunday, please contact Allen at ar_bates-@yahoo.com or 573 351-8495 and we will get you the info and an invitation. This is available on both internet and telephone.

As we worshiped together we sang It is Well With My Soul, among others. We were reminded in our communion devotion that "Fear Not" is a phrase that is given many times in scripture, and as Christians that is something that we should practice. Isaiah 41:10 says "Fear not, for I am with you. Be not dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you and uphold you with my righteous right hand.

Prayer needs include the defeat of the coronavirus pandemic throughout the world. Also pray for Ronnie Ipock with lung cancer. Pray for our businesses dealing with the downturn and social distancing. And pray for the strengthening of believers. Allen's message from 2 Timothy 3:14-17 reminds us that we should be in God's Word often. We can be strengthened and encouraged by it every day. And we are urged to continue in it every day, for they are able to make us wise for salvation thru faith in Christ Jesus. The scripture, from Genesis to revelation, points us to Jesus.
