MORA Daily Update 9/25/2020

Dear dedicated MORA staff,

There are two special pages below. Sadly, MORA has seen several residents pass away at the end of summer and we remember them with a few lovely words. Also attached are few of the quotes posted on Facebook last week in honor of National DSP Week. 

MORA Memorias September 2020

DSP Week Quotes 1 

Strong against COVID

The time is now to increase our vigilance against COVID. What can we do to fortify and soothe ourselves after the past long, difficult 7 months?

Please keep talking. Please keep listening.

Important to keep up screening logs at every MORA site. Sometimes it could seem “too small to matter” but this is how we’ll be able to tell people they’ve come in contact with a known positive case of COVID.

Flu shots and…

Get ahead of cold and flu season. Drink water. Eat green stuff. Get outside. Wash your hands. Wear your mask — always. And did we mention enjoy a nap or find a really funny movie to watch? What can we do to help each other stay healthy? Raise your hand and talk to your Supervisor about stress before it brings on the germs.

IT tip: Web pages not loading?
Tricky browser problems are coming up. Microsoft’s “Internet Explorer” is being discontinued but is the only web browser that Evolv works with so we have to keep it a while longer!  “Edge” is what Microsoft will support and keep secure going forward so it’s top choice for everything else. Still having difficulties?
