Apr 24, 2020

Should you sanitize your purchased groceries? Obviously that is a personal preference and probably whatever makes you feel the best is the practice to follow - here is a story that speaks to that:         https://heavy.com/news/2020/03/how-to-sanitize-groceries-coronavirus-covid-19/

Rite-Aid has started up COVID 19 testing at select locations.  Here is the information and it appears as though for now the only tri-county location is in Eaton Rapids:    https://www.businesswire.com/news/home/20200418005011/en

Update from the East Lansing Schools in its efforts to provide food for its students:

Meals

Thank you for your patience and offers of support and assistance as we evaluated our meal distribution system last week and made some safety improvements that will begin this Thursday, April 16. All students age 18 & under and young adults with special needs age 26 & under qualify for free breakfast and lunch. All others should access the Greater Lansing Food Bank for food assistance.

BEGINNING THIS THURSDAY, APRIL 16:   Meals will be distributed by a pick-up/drive-thru model from 12:00 – 1:00 p.m. on Tuesdays and Thursdays. We’ll provide three days’ worth of meals on Tuesdays and four days’ worth of meals on Thursdays.

To eliminate face-to-face contact between our staff and drivers/passengers, please have your trunk emptied so that we can place food and milk in the trunk. Please place a box or laundry basket in your trunk, if possible.

You will receive pre-packaged meal boxes that will contain a breakfast and lunch for each day for each student.

Please stay in your car.

 Calls to the Greater Lansing Food bank will result in being referred to 2-1-1 for assistance, so please call them first.
