Ways to entertain yourself in the time of COVID-19Anne Weatherholt

Bored yet? Wondering what to do? Feeling antsy? Here is my list of crazy ideas for ways to keep busy around the house meant to give you a laugh and a lift: Alphabetize the spices. Add the canned goods while you are at it! Count the dandelions in your yard. No dandelions? Count them in mine  plenty for all. Count the number of tiles on the ceiling  or the number of windows in the house, the number of steps, the number of doors  you get the idea. Post on Facebook and see if you can start a trend. Sort through your winter clothes but dont put them away too soon. After all, we had snow flurries last week and this week as well. Sort through your wrapping paper. Throw away the creased or bent tubes, better yet, take the paper and use a table top to smooth it for reuse. Sharpen all your pencils in the house. See if all the pens and markers work  toss those that dont. Re-copy your computer passwords into a new, protected place  you decide what works for you. Better still, create new passwords for all your most-used websites. And, if you decide to do any of the above tasks, dont tell others, dont post on Facebook and for heavens sake, dont tell me!

During the last great flu pandemic (1918-1920), it is said that some small towns put up barricades and did not allow others inside. Now that idea is not practical today, but instead Hancock has created a Pandemic Response Plan, initiated by Mayor Ralph Salvagno, a physician, and Town Manager Joe Gilbert. If necessary, the mayor could put all or part of the plan into place. A group of citizens has been named to help carry out the plan: Amy Gillespie, coordinating officer; Dr. Matthew Hahn, exposure control officer; Police Chief Jim Robinson and a representative from the fire department and rescue squad. The plan has been designed to align with county and state policies and procedures. Effective April 8, Town of Hancock employees are required to wear face masks when carrying out public duties. The town strongly urges all citizens to wear face coverings in public and is taking donations of N95 masks or homemade masks at the Hancock Police Department. The Hancock Town meetings are now being held via teleconference with a listen-in only option for the public. So, our town leaders are doing all they can to keep us safe. Lets do all we can as well by limiting our business and keeping a good social distance. The complete plan is available at townofhancock.org by clicking the Cornavirus COVID 19 Latest Information and Resources banner. The document is at the bottom of the page.

Dont forget, many Hancock area houses of worship are online via Facebook, Zoom, YouTube and other platforms to share Sunday services, Bible studies and other offerings. Go to your church website for details. While it is sad we cannot be together physically, Gods love reaches everywhere and sustains us through hard times. Churches are doing their bit by staying closed in order to protect members and guests.

Use of the Rail Trail and C&O Canal is still popular in Hancock. Using bicycles or foot power, local citizens can enjoy the scenery in a safe manner. It is still good to wear a facemask  as it reminds folks about social distancing and keeps you from touching your face. The bicycle shop is open for that spring tune-up and the paths beckon.
