If you believe you have been exposed and show no symptoms, please self-isolate for five days and then proceed to an urgent care facility such as Centra Care, which has extended hours and offers the rapid test and the PCR test. The county health department also provides COVID testing.Dr. Scott Brady“On day five,” Dr. Brady explained, “you’re going to have the best chance of getting a positive test if you get tested. You can get that done at any of our urgent care facilities. All of our Centra Care locations offer testing. A few weeks ago we were testing 3,500 a week. Now we’re testing 20,000 a week, and we’re making plans to double that.”Again: Do not go to an emergency room to get tested for COVID-19. If you are symptomatic, seek care sooner.

This is more of a marathon and takes some patience on our part. Hope doesn’t push it away.”Highlights from the briefingAdventHealth facilities across Central Florida have surge plans in effect and have sufficient capacity to care for patients, including those with COVID-19. Their hospitals are designed to be flexible and expandable.Daryl Tol“We are not at full capacity at AdventHealth. We are managing the increase well, and testing more across the state. And the percentages are going up – we are seeing an increase in hospitalizations across the state,” explained Tol.With an 84% capacity across seven counties and 16 campuses, they still have available almost 20% of their ICU beds for additional patients. And apparently this is normal for them. Tol continued, “Our health systems operate in this range of capacity on a regular basis. The growth of COVID is something we are paying close attention to, but the capacity level is still within a manageable range for us.”They have sufficient supplies of ventilators, monitors and other specialized equipment and can quickly convert spaces in the hospital to both standard and ICU level rooms. AdventHealth also has an extensive health care system in place in Central Florida so they can locate patients to the facility that best matches the level of care they need.center_img Free webinar for job seekers on best interview answers, hosted by Goodwill June 11 LEAVE A REPLY Cancel reply The need for convalescent plasma donors.

At least today, but they are ready to “turn the dial” if they need to for space and staff.Tol elaborated on that point, “As we expand space, and as we expand staffing, it’s more of a dial than a switch. We would typically curtail certain things to make certain space or staff available. You try to continue to do as much as you can because the backlog, even from April, is there. People need care, they need procedures.” Save my name, email, and website in this browser for the next time I comment.last_img

Enter Your Email Address “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” These 2 FTSE 100 shares have leapt over 20% in 30 days. Which would I buy? Over the past 30 days, the Johnson Matthey share price has leapt by more than a fifth (20.8%). For the record, its shares are up 13.2% over one year, down 6.7% over three years and ahead 22.3% over five years. To me, this is no bubble stock and, indeed, may be one FTSE 100 share ripe for re-rating. At the current share price of 2,985p, Matthey is valued at £5.8bn. That’s almost double its valuation during the March market meltdown of 10 months ago. Matthey’s earnings per share took a hit in 2020, but are expected to bounce back this year on rising revenues. For now, they pay a dividend of 1.7% a year. As a precaution, the dividend was cut in 2021, but may be restored to previous levels this year.Last April, I saw a once-in-a-decade opportunity to buy into this British success story at 1,972p. The shares have since soared by over £10, leaping by more than half (51.4%). But with exposure to the coming electric-vehicle boom, I see a solid future for Matthey. Of course, I could be wrong. After all, Matthey had a difficult 2020, cancelling its dividend as its first-half underlying earnings per share halved. If earnings don’t return to growth, then this could be painful for its shareholders. Even so, I would choose this high-quality FTSE 100 share over frothy Ocado any day! The first month of 2021 has seen the FTSE 100 leap and then slide as share prices fell back. Eight days into the year, the Footsie had gained almost 415 points (6.4%), one of its strongest starts in decades. However, it has since slipped back and is now under 45 points ahead (0.7%) for 2021. But some FTSE 100 shares have had a cracking month, with these two in particular surging over the past 30 days.FTSE 100 winner #1: OcadoThe biggest riser in the FTSE 100 so far in 2021 is online grocer Ocado Group (LSE: OCDO). The Ocado share price has soared by more than a quarter (28.8%) in 30 days. What’s more, Ocado has been an outstanding share to own since 2016. Its shares are up 125.1% over one year, 455.5% over three years and 956.8% over five years. As a result, Ocado has also been the best-performing FTSE 100 share over all three of these time periods.5G is here – and shares of this ‘sleeping giant’ could be a great way for you to potentially profit!According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential…Of course, the Ocado share price may continue to thrash the Footsie, but I am sceptical. Since floating in mid-2010, Ocado has released a decade of results as a public company. As it gets larger, Ocado burns through yet more cash and generates greater losses, including a pre-tax loss of £214.5m in 2019. At the current share price of 2,854p, Ocado is valued at £21.4bn. That’s over 12 times its 2019 revenues. Even though Ocado’s revenues are growing fast, this makes its shares among the most highly priced in the FTSE 100. Also, loss-making Ocado has never paid a dividend. Hence, as a value investor looking for cheap shares and decent dividends, I would not buy this FTSE 100 share today. For me, Ocado looks like a bubble waiting to burst.Johnson Matthey is up 21%My second surging FTSE 100 share is Johnson Matthey (LSE: JMAT). Although not a household name like Ocado, Johnson Matthey has been around since 1817 and has a 204-year pedigree. Matthey is a world leader in the production of specialist chemicals and precious metals. Its products are used in the production of industrial chemicals, emissions controls, batteries, medical products, and and pharmaceuticals.
