Florida Covid-19 Update 4-04-2020 New Cases

BIG THANK YOU FROM OUR STAFF FOR ORDERING TAKE OUT AND YOUR GENEROUS TIPS**
Notes around Clearwater Beach and Sand Key we have been through 20 years of hurricanes on the beach – yet, nothing brought our beach-side playground to it’s knees like the COVID-19 virus! More restaurants have closed their doors (even for take out). The streets are empty. Fishing charters are near zero. They don’t even bother to charge for parking in the marina anymore. Beaches are patrolled by police constantly, despite resident plea to keep them open for residents. Bars cannot serve alcohol unless it’s in a sealed container for consumption at home. Imagine that for Clearwater Beach!

What Kills this Nasty COVID-19 There are a lot of rumors and misinformation about methods to kill the virus and safely sanitize surfaces.
Despite what you may see on the internet –
THESE THINGS DON’T WORK!

  • Tito’s Vodkas and Aloe
  • Listerine
  • Sunlight does not work
  • Garlic and miracle minerals don’t work
  • and pretty much any other claim you hear ABOUT INGESTING SOMETHING INTO YOUR BODY
  • Vinegar does NOT work

Once the virus is in your body, you will have varying symptoms from almost none to severe. NOTHING, as of today stops the virus in your body!
THESE ITEMS DO KILL COVID-19  on surfaces

  • Soap and warm water over 80 degrees (washing hands is the best way to kill the virus BEFORE infection.
  • Hand sanitizer from a reputable source – should clearly state the purpose is for viruses and bacteria.
  • SURFACES – use commercial products that contain bleach and/or pure alcohol of 65% or more (bourbon and other liquors won’t work!).
  • Bleach solutions that contain 1/4 cup of bleach to one gallon of water or similar strengths. DO NOT USE ON OR IN BODY! You may dip things like toys in such a solution, but caution is urged since discoloration may occur.
  • Hydrogen peroxide may be used in limited circumstances. It is effective, but may harm surfaces.
  • Disinfectants from many sources – there are safe brand name disinfectants – here is the list recommended.

We do not recommend concoctions suggested on the internet or other media. Strengths, quality and consistency are issues – don’t bet your life on it!
