6/29/20 – COVID-19 strikes back!
In Texas, we have been comfortably safe from COVID-19 with strikingly low numbers. In the past several weeks, the “second wave” has finally hit us, and we are at record numbers!

5/20/20 – Assessing Risk of Infection While Going Out
Are you scared to go out into public for fear of catching COVID-19?
Watch this video to learn how to determine your risk of infection and how to pick the right environments to visit.
4/23/20 – COVID-19 Antibody testing available
We now offer antibody testing to anyone interested (membership NOT required). The antibody test looks for antibodies specific to COVID-19.
The rapid antibody tests cannot differentiate between COVID-19 and other coronavirus infections. Our blood draw antibody tests get sent out to labs that can determine COVID-19 specific antibodies.
4/10/20 – Most of USA’s COVID-19 Came from Europe
This company maps viral genomes and mutations around the world. In this diagram, you are able to watch that the China cases to the US were shut down quickly with closing the border to China.
Unexpectedly, most of our cases came from travelers in Europe. You can see that the cases in the USA exploded, and the viral strains show consistency with European strains.
This is why we are several weeks behind Europe.
This video was taken from a website called https://nextstrain.org/ncov/global.
4/10/20 – Research Proves IV Vitamin C Works
This video is a physician proving his research that IV Vitamin C works to reduce lung injury associated with cytokine storm. It is intended for physicians and practitioners, but it can serve as PROOF to everyone that Vitamin C works for ARDS, which is the pathology that is killing patients with COVID-19.
4/7/20 – Airborne Microscopic Particles
This is a video that shows airborne microscopic particles floating in the air for hours after a cough, sneeze, and even TALKING!
The visual is neat but pay very close attention to the very end. The answer is AIR FLOW.
The solution to pollution is dilution.
You need airflow to get particles out.
Outdoor spaces are low likelihood for infection.
Indoor air is stagnant with higher risk!

My mask protects you. Your mask protects me.
