COVID Cases Increase; Holcomb Orders Additional Restrictions

On Friday Governor Eric J. Holcomb signed an executive order to implement pandemic requirements for all Hoosiers and targeted restrictions for counties that have high levels of COVID-19.
Face coverings are now required for all Hoosiers. Businesses of all types are required to place clearly visible signs at their public and employee entrances notifying all that face coverings are required.
Local governments may impose more restrictive guidelines.
“We must do all we can to protect our hospital capacity, so our health care professionals can protect and care for patients,” Holcomb said. “Not only for those who have COVID, but for the cancer patient, the heart patient, and the other Hoosier patients who need care in our urban, rural, and suburban hospitals all across the state of Indiana.”
The Indiana Department of Health has established a color-coded county map that measures weekly cases per 100,000 residents and the seven-day positivity rate for all tests completed. Each county is assigned a color based on the average of scores for the two metrics. Restrictions are assigned based on the map, which is updated each Wednesday at www.coronavirus.in.gov.
Both Jackson and Scott Counties are currently orange rated counties representing the next to the highest COVID community spread ratings with both have increasing positivity of those tested.
Nine Indiana counties are currently red while 5 are rated yellow. No county is rated blue; 78 counties are orange, the next to highest.
Among the Governor’s requirements are:
Blue: The county has low community spread.
•Social gatherings of any kind, indoor or outdoor, are limited to 250 people.
•A special, seasonal or commercial event for which more than 250 people will be in attendance, must submit a plan to the local health department at least seven days in advance and receive approval before proceeding. This requirement is effective Nov. 22.
Yellow: The county has moderate community spread.
•Social gatherings of any kind, indoor or outdoor, are limited to 100 people.
•A special, seasonal or commercial event for which more than 100 people will be in attendance, must submit a plan to the local health department at least seven days in advance and receive approval before proceeding. This requirement is effective Nov. 22.
Orange: The county’s community spread is approaching high levels. These requirements are in effect when a county reaches the Orange metric and remain until a county moves to Yellow or Blue for two straight weeks.
•Social gatherings of any kind, indoor or outdoor, are limited to 50 people.
•A special, seasonal or commercial event for which more than 50 people will be in attendance, must submit a plan to the local health department at least seven days in advance and receive approval before proceeding. College and professional sports are included. This requirement is effective Nov. 22.
Red: The county has very high positivity and community spread. When a county is in the Red metric, these requirements remain in effect until the metric has returned to Orange or lower for two weeks.
•Social gatherings of any kind, indoor or outdoor, are limited to 25 people.
•A special, seasonal or commercial event for which more than 25 people will be in attendance, must submit a plan to the local health department at least seven days in advance and receive approval before proceeding. College and professional sports are included. This requirement is effective Nov. 22.
Regardless of a county’s color code, face coverings are required for all Hoosiers. Businesses of all types are required to place clearly visible signs at their public and employee entrances notifying all that face coverings are required.
All customers in restaurants and bars are required to be seated. Tables, counters, or other seating arrangements must be spaced six feet apart.
The executive order is in effect now until at least Saturday, Dec. 12.

Babysitter Convicted Of Reckless Supervision Following Death of Infant

Candace Jones, 38, of Scottsburg was convicted last week in Scott Circuit Court of reckless supervision by a child care provider for her actions that caused the death of Emily, a 6 month-old entrusted to her care, according to Scott County Prosecutor Chris Owens. Jones, 38, was charged in June of this year with neglect of dependent causing death, reckless supervision by a childcare provider, and operating a child care home without a license.
On Nov. 12, Jones pleaded guilty of reckless supervision by a childcare provider and was sentenced by Scott Circuit Court Judge Jason Mount to 8 1/2 years. She was given credit for the 95 days she served in Scott County Jail and the 7 1/2 years of her sentence was suspected. She was placed on probation for 7 1/2 years.
On May 30, 2019, Jones babysat for Emily and seven other children at her home on South Frontage Road in southern Scott County.
She laid Emily on her stomach on an adult bed and surrounded her with blankets and pillows thinking they would keep her from rolling off. The bedroom where Emily napped contained no baby monitor or any other type of monitoring device, Owens said.
While Emily was napping, Jones went outside of the house to watch some of the older kids play. At some point during the nap, Emily suffocated on bedding which she had been surrounded to protect her. Emily was discovered by Jones with the comforter on top of her and unresponsive when her mother arrived to pick her up.
“The Scott County Prosecutor’s Office worked throughout this process with Emily’s parents to assure that Jones was convicted and admitted wrongdoing for her reckless actions,” Owens said.
Death was preventable with proper education, says mother.
Sarah Broady, Emily’s mother, said, “I will never be able to fully explain the heartache and devastation our family feels from losing Emily. No amount of time can heal this type of pain. I want to try to help other families make sure this preventable death does not happen to their child.
She encourages parents to research safe sleep and practice it during every single sleep (for your child).
“Approximately 3,500 babies in the United States die every year from sleep-related infant deaths. We can’t just rely on things that worked ten or twenty years ago because those practices have been proven to not be safe,” said Broady. “I also encourage you to check, double check, and check again to make sure whoever is caring for your baby, whether that be a sitter, grandparent, or a friend, is following the same safe sleep routines you practice in our own home. Your baby’s life depends on you being knowledgeable and up to date on safe sleep practices, as so many things have changed over the years due to research.” “We will always wonder who Emily would have been, but I like to think that in every life saved through Emily’s story, her bright smile and sweet memory will live on.”
Owens encourages anyone entrusted to care for a baby to follow The ABC’s of Safe Sleep.
The ABC’s stand for Alone, Back, and Crib.
Alone – Babies should always be on their own sleep surface free from any co-sleeping.
Back – Babies should be placed on their back for every sleep.
Crib – The crib in which a baby sleeps should be empty. This means no bumper pads, pillows, blankets, stuffed animals, toys, or supplies like diapers and wipes.
According to nationwidechildrens.org, a safe crib is a bassinet, play-yard or crib that has the spindles no wider that 2-3/8 inches apart and sides that do not drop down. When using one of these safe sleep places, you should always use a firm mattress and tightly fitted sheet.
When in a position where a sleeping baby is entrusted to you, be sure that you are always in a place that allows you to monitor the baby.
Although it is not feasible to always be in the same room as a sleeping baby, one should take steps to assure that they can monitor the baby or at least frequently check in on the child. Baby monitors are a great way to assure that the child is still safe and healthy.
In addition to assuring that there are no objects in bed with the baby, you should also refrain from allowing the baby to sleep with adults, other children, or pets, Owens said.

Sertoma ‘Christmas Miracle’ Applications Available

Applications for next month’s Sertoma Christmas Miracle are now available.
The applications can be picked up at many locations across the county, including the Jackson County Health Department, WIC office, Seymour City Hall, Jackson County Department of Child Services and Human Services Inc. in Seymour. They also can be found at all branches of the Jackson County Public Library and all partner agencies of Jackson County United Way.
Other locations where applications are available include the Jackson County Sheriff’s Department in Brownstown during regular business hours and at Bundy Brothers in Medora.
Applications must be received by Dec. 10.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, all gifts will be in the form of $35 gift cards so delivery can be made by mail. The Jackson County Sertoma Club was concerned about having sufficient volunteers for the in-person delivery of gifts.
To help financially, people can donate gift cards in $35 amounts and monetary donations may be sent to Sertoma at P.O. Box 841, Seymour, IN 47274.
All donations will be used to provide gifts to children in Jackson County. The phone number for the Christmas Miracle headquarters is 812-498-2275 and calls will be answered beginning Tuesday, Dec. 1.
“We are not associated with any national or international toy drive. Anyone who donates gift cards or money to Sertoma Christmas Miracle can rest assured knowing that their contribution is used only for the children of Jackson County,” club president and Christmas Miracle Co-Chairman Ryan Begley said.
“This program only exists because of the extraordinary charity of the people of this county,” he said.
To avoid any duplication of services, Sertoma is using the Charity Tracker network. All applications must be signed by the parent or legal guardian, and applications are accepted for children 12 years of age and younger. All children must live in Jackson County. This year, a letter of instruction is included with a revised application.
Sertoma is a non-profit service organization that stands for SERvice TO MAnkind.

What’s A COVID Sequesterd Family To Do?

by Curt Kovener

COVID cases are rising. The Governor has ordered additional restrictions in what we should safely do. The hospital has restricted surgeries and procedures so don’t get too sick. And here we are on the cusp on the holiday season and are being warned that we should not meet with family and friends for fear of spreading and catching COVID.
So what’s a sequestered family to do this holiday season?
Here in the Hoosier wilderness we will be cooking Thanksgiving dinner for two. Well, three and a quarter if you count Emma the Great Pyrenees and Willow the cat. So it could be a lot of leftover turkey, dressing, cranberry relish, hickory nut and pumpkin pie for several days.
So, you ask again, after all that cooking and eating, what’s a sequestered family to do this holiday season?
Let me suggest you dig in to or begin a holiday DVD collection.
Over the next few weeks we’ll be watching most of our growing collection.
There’s “Miracle on 34th Street”, the original black & white version with a youthful Natalie Wood, Edmund Gwinn as Chris Kringle and John Payne as an attorney who proves without a shadow of a doubt that there is a Santa Claus.
And keeping things original, there’s the B&W “It’s a Wonderful Life” with Jimmy Stewart and Donna Reed.
Set in Indiana there’s “A Christmas Story” where all Ralphie wants is a Red Ryder B-B gun and is warned by everyone “You’ll shoot your eye out”. But he gets his Christmas wish and he almost does.
At some point we will watch George C. Scott as Ebenezer Scrooge find redemption in “A Christmas Carol”. Then for a comedic parody of that story there is the 1980’s Bill Murray in “Scrooged.”
And keeping with comedy and absurd chaos, we will watch 6’3” Will Ferrell in “Elf” with James Caan as his absent father. I am particularly amused that Sonny Corleone is the father of a 6-foot+ child Buddy who thinks he is one of Santa’s elves.
Also a comedy but definitely not to be viewed with children in the room is “Bad Santa” with Billy Bob Thornton. My DVD warns me that I have the “Naughty Version Not Shown In The Theatres.’
There are a couple of animated holiday originals I first watched in my youth: “Frosty the Snowman” with Jimmy Durante narrating and singing the title song and another original Christmas classic “Santa Claus Is coming To Town!” Even gray hair & wrinkles can enjoy cartoons on occasion.
We also will be watching the higher tech live and animated Tom Hanks conduct us on “The Polar Express.
For the ladies in the house (there are three in the wilderness Becky, Emma and Willow) who enjoy romantic comedies there’s “The Holiday”, “The Family Stone”, and “Love Actually” are all holiday views at our house.
And new to our collection this year is “The Man Who Invented Christmas”, the inspiration story of the magical journey that led acclaimed but writer blocked Charles Dickens to create Ebenezer Scrooge, Tiny Tim and the ghosts of “A Christmas Carol”.
One I have not found yet on DVD but available on Netflix is “Christmas Chronicles” with Kurt Russell as Santa Claus who sings (while in jail) a punchy, bluesy Elvis Presley classic “Santa Claus Is Back In Town.”
So there you go—nearly 24 hours of holiday viewing to lift your spirits as you lift a hot buttered rum while you remain separate from COVID and the rest of the family.
And no doubt there will be those televised seasonal specials to occupy our holiday sequestration.
Drop me an email of what other holiday classics you like that we should add to our collection.
