Advice on Safe Grocery Shopping

Watch this Youtube video for excellent advice on what to do when you get home from grocery shopping – with the caveat that the CDC reports that you need to leave a bleach solution on surfaces for at least four minutes for it to kill the virus.

If you run out of household cleaning products you can make your own by adding 4 teaspoons of bleach to a quart (32 oz.) of water – or 1/3 cup per gallon. Mix the solution in a spray bottle and you are good to go. Visit the CDC Website for more more information.

2020 Census is Here

Homes have begun receiving their invitation to respond to the 2020 Census . These official Census Bureau mailings will include detailed information and a Census ID for completing the Census online. R-UTN Fran LaDuca has a message to all our members concerning the census.

I urge all members to respond to the census questionnaire – – I am a dinosaur where computers are involved, but I filled in my questionnaire on line!!  and it took less than 10 minutes – – if you can’t do it on line – make sure you respond to the paper copy when it is mailed to you –  this is important – – stay well – Fran
