After doctors warn masks are still needed, Pinellas Commission stays the course

The Pinellas County Commission on Tuesday did not schedule a vote to repeal its mask ordinance after the heads of four local hospitals stressed that the safeguard has been essential in bringing coronavirus cases down from the summer peak.

Doctors from AdventHealth, Baycare, Community Health Centers of Pinellas and HCA also warned the preventative measure is needed because of the impending flu season, which could potentially be exacerbated with coronavirus in a scenario they called a “twindemic.”

Three weeks after the mask ordinance went into effect on June 23, the county’s daily caseload had reached an average of 330 new cases per day. It then reached a low of 64 in late August, and was at 77 as of last week, according to state data.

The doctors emphasized much is still being learned about the novel virus and pressed officials to stay the course.

America’s racial reckoning is putting a spotlight on Black mental health

As a child, Reginald Howard struggled with destructive visions, moments where he imagined destroying the shelves at the corner store or pushing another child down, but when he tried to identify what was happening, his mother attributed it to his “Howard blood.”

“At that point, I probably should have been in therapy but because there’s such a stigma behind therapy in the Black community, and around the world but I’ll start within my community, I really didn’t get the help that I needed,” Howard said.

His father also struggled with mental illness, a situation that led Howard’s grandmother to refer to him and his sister as “demon children.”

Howard’s mental health went unaddressed as a child and he continued to struggle with mental illness into adulthood, which led to a crisis point in 2011.

Out of work at 20 years old, he learned his now-fiancé was pregnant. The anxiety of

ViiV Healthcare Announces New Research Report, “Here as I Am,” on Socio-Economic Forces Affecting Access to HIV Care for Latinx Gay and Bisexual Men

RESEARCH TRIANGLE PARK, N.C.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–ViiV Healthcare today announced findings from “Here as I Am: A Listening Initiative with Latinx Gay and Bisexual Men Affected by HIV,” which found that for Latinx men, including cis and transgender men, who have sex with men (MSM), navigating sexual and cultural identity amid social pressures poses significant challenges to accessing healthcare.

According to the report, Latinx communities in the US face many of the same challenges as other communities of color, including poverty, poor access to education, poor housing and unreliable or unsafe public transportation, all of which impact health outcomes for Latinx MSM. On top of this, anti-immigrant laws spread fear and insecurity that keep these men and their communities from utilizing life-saving services including healthcare. When they do attempt to access care, many experience fear, discrimination and rejection from service and clinics.

“Despite progress made to decrease HIV diagnoses in
