We know these holidays are going to be different due to COVID-19. Each one of us can play a part in helping to protect the most vulnerable among us through personal responsibility. We can do this with a few simple steps. Please keep COVID-19 protective measures in mind when planning your holiday.

“When you celebrate Thanksgiving this year, please continue to wear masks, physically distance, avoid large gatherings — especially gatherings with people you have not been in contact with recently. If you are out in the community wear a mask — especially when inside local businesses and restaurants. As I have said in the past, there are several ways to support our local restaurants and small businesses. Shopping with them is one and helping them to mitigate the spread of COVID-19 by wearing a mask when you are inside their establishments is another.

“I continue to work to balance the health of our community with the health of our economy, and I ask each and every citizen to continue to work with me to achieve this balance. By protecting ourselves and one other, we can all contribute to our recovery. Please take personal responsibility as we enter into the holidays. Have a safe, healthy, and happy Thanksgiving.”

Increase in COVID Cases Seen Locally and Nationally – St. Tammany Health System

COVID UPDATE FOR NEIGHBORS from St. Tammany Parish Health System—11/16/2020

sths

All local residents should renew awareness and focus on containing the spread of COVID-19 in our community. Today at St. Tammany Health System, 17 patients are in COVID care, an increase from 9 one week ago today. Our inpatient census is 131, and we have discharged 492 patients from COVID care since the pandemic began.

The nation surpassed 10 million cases last week and hit 11 million this week. Our local community is experiencing a spike as well with 8,931 cases to date in St. Tammany Parish according to Louisiana Department of Health. Halloween is believed to have sparked a significant increase in community spread, and Thanksgiving is seen as a potential next wave of exposure.

All residents are reminded as we head into winter, people spend more time indoors, increasing the risk of exposure to colds, flu and viruses, including COVID-19. STHS recommends everyone wear a mask, follow proper handwashing and cough etiquette and maintain your distance from others, particularly when you don’t feel well. It’s also important to protect yourself from the flu with a flu shot, which you can access through STHS Express Care and all STPN primary care clinics.

As part of our commitment to help you take excellent care of yourself, St. Tammany Health System has launched Health Check 365, including a special event at STHS Cordes Pavilion, 16300 Hwy 1085, Nov. 18 at 6 p.m. For a single fee, participants receive a spectrum of health screenings including biometrics, carotid artery, sleep apnea, body composition plus screens for lung, skin, head and neck cancer. Appointments are necessary by calling 985-871-5932.

Please join us as a participating business for Covington White Linen Night taking place on Saturday, August 20th from six to nine p.m. for an evening of whimsical art as well as some early jazz era music all created and performed by New Orleans’ own renaissance man, Grayhawk Perkins.  Grayhawk has been working on various murals at the English Tea Room and Eatery that will be on display, as well as some new, original pieces that complement the whimsical feelings of the pieces he was commissioned for at the Tea Room.  The newer pieces featured will all be for sale and include his British Blue Cat with Instruments series.  The Grayhawk Band will be playing on the front porch of the English Tea Room and will feature a 4 piece jazz band that will focus on jazz music ranging from early 1900s to the 1930s.

This will be Historic Downtown Covington’s second annual Covington White Linen Night and will benefit The Public Art for Covington fund, a non-profit administered through the Northshore community Foundation whose focus is to place art in Covington that reflects the rich history and culture of the city, to reflect and reinforce Covington’s reputation and standing as an artist’s community.  Along with the other participating restaurants and retailers, The English Tea Room is proud to donate 10% of our sales from the night towards the cause.  The evening is extremely popular among locals and is sure to be yet another successful, entertaining evening of art, libations and live music!

*Grayhawk Perkins, a New Orleans born Native American (Choctaw and Houma Indian), Perkins is a well-known cultural figure in Louisiana who has been described as a 21st century renaissance man.  He performs often as a solo artist at both Jazz Fest and the Voodoo Experience Music Festival and has been involved in the Louisiana music industry for decades.  In addition to performing music on stage since childhood, he is also an educator, historian, and “tribal storyteller”, recognized as an expert on Native American and American Colonial history.
