A message from doctors and nurse practitioners about covid-19

We are part of your communities. We know you, and you know us. As we all deal with COVID-19, we want to be a part of the solution; we want to educate and empower you to be a part of the solution also

Note: Ada Icon supports the opinions put forth in this letter.

We, your doctors and your nurse practitioners, are living and working together with you as the COVID-19 pandemic is unfolding.  

We are currently seeing an increasing number of people with this infection in Putnam county and surrounding areas.  We want to do everything we can to limit the spread of COVID-19 and need your help.  

What you do matters. The basic actions you keep hearing about, i.e. washing hands, social distancing, wearing masks, and staying home when you are sick, actually do much to prevent the spread of COVID-19.  

Our petition is just about freedom of choice

If you don’t feel comfortable sending your child to school and have the resources to keep them home, keep them home. We just want what is best for the majority of the community.

Thank you very much for allowing our group to express our concerns, there have been many  false premises regarding our petition.  "Unmasked" is a group
of concerned, like-minded parents, that have pulled our resources together to
fight for the rights of our children.

We must recognize our health care choices can affect others

I urge everyone on the school board, in the Ada community, and Hardin County to think beyond themselves to their neighbors, their churches, to the businesses in town, and to the surrounding community.

On this past Thursday evening, June 18, I had the opportunity to enjoy one of the freedoms we have in this country – the right to free speech. 

I and eight other engaged citizens from the Ada community spoke to the Ada School board regarding concerns related to the upcoming school year and measures which may or may not be in place regarding safeguards around COVID-19.

Letter: Neither inspired by nor endorsed by our group

This morning, we were made aware of apparent vandalism to yard signs from the "Ada School Unmasked" group. Persons not related to our group, apparently spray painted signs on people's front lawns.

The impact of two serious “illnesses” at the same time is very significant

Not unlike humans, a culture can suffer illness too. Current events prove the point

Icon viewers:
The word “culture” is defined as the customary beliefs, social forms and material traits of a racial, religious or social group. In more basic language, it’s the values and norms a group of people choose to follow as they coexist. Not unlike humans, a culture can suffer illness too. Current events prove the point.

Letter: Successful May 18 Ada blood drive

Icon viewers:
We had a very successful blood drive on Monday despite the rain. Almost everyone who was on the schedule came in and gave their donation and the majority of those people signed up for our July 20th blood drive.

The Red Cross informed me that those donations helped save 126 lives. Thank you all.

And a very special Tthank you to the Ada VFW  for hosting it. 

The Red Cross personnel deserve a huge thank you. Setting up and tearing down for a blood drive is a tremendous amount of work. Kudos to all of those people...dedicated and hard working.
