This comes from Logix Bank, apparenty someone at the branch has tested positive. I was at the branch March 9, so far I am ok, but this is start to hit closer to home, as we start to see others in our community affected by this pandemic.
Dear Logix Member:
We were notified on April 2nd that one of our employees at the Burbank Branch location, 2340 Hollywood Way in Burbank, has tested positive for COVID-19. The employee last worked at this location on March 25th and is currently recovering at home. We have temporarily closed this branch location, but our deposit taking ATMs remain available, along with our Pasadena and Chatsworth branch locations.
If you were in our Burbank branch between March 7th and March 25th, we strongly encourage you to follow CDC-recommended self-monitoring guidelines and call your healthcare provider right away if you develop any symptoms. Those Logix team members that were in direct contact with the employee are currently at home under a 14-day self-quarantine, and they continue to be paid during this time.
We are following all local and state guidance and taking necessary measures to prevent the spread of the virus. In addition to the precautionary measures we have had in place since February, we are deep-cleaning and sanitizing this branch to prevent any further spread of COVID-19. As soon as the branch has been fully cleaned and sanitized, we intend to reopen this location and continue providing you with the exceptional experience that you expect from Logix. We will be sure to notify you when the branch will reopen, and will post updates on the branch Facebook page.

This is from Hopkins from one of their infectious disease experts.
* The virus is not a living organism, but a protein molecule (DNA) covered by a protective layer of lipid (fat), which, when absorbed by the cells of the ocular, nasal or buccal mucosa, changes their genetic code. (mutation) and convert them into aggressor and multiplier cells.
* Since the virus is not a living organism but a protein molecule, it is not killed, but decays on its own. The disintegration time depends on the temperature, humidity and type of material where it lies.
* The virus is very fragile; the only thing that protects it is a thin outer layer of fat. That is why any soap or detergent is the best remedy, because the foam CUTS the FAT (that is why you have to rub so much: for 20 seconds or more, to make a lot of foam).
By dissolving the fat layer, the protein molecule disperses and breaks down on its own.
* HEAT melts fat; this is why it is so good to use water above 25 degrees Celsius for washing hands, clothes and everything. In addition, hot water makes more foam and that makes it even more useful.
* Alcohol or any mixture with alcohol over 65% DISSOLVES ANY FAT, especially the external lipid layer of the virus.
* Any mix with 1 part bleach and 5 parts water directly dissolves the protein, breaks it down from the inside.
* Oxygenated water helps long after soap, alcohol and chlorine, because peroxide dissolves the virus protein, but you have to use it pure and it hurts your skin.
* NO BACTERICIDE OR ANTIBIOTIC SERVES. The virus is not a living organism like bacteria; antibodies cannot kill what is not alive.
* NEVER shake used or unused clothing, sheets or cloth. While it is glued to a porous surface, it is very inert and disintegrates only
-between 3 hours (fabric and porous),
-4 hours (copper and wood)
-24 hours (cardboard),
– 42 hours (metal) and
-72 hours (plastic).
But if you shake it or use a feather duster, the virus molecules float in the air for up to 3 hours, and can lodge in your nose.
* The virus molecules remain very stable in external cold, or artificial as air conditioners in houses and cars.
They also need moisture to stay stable, and especially darkness. Therefore, dehumidified, dry, warm and bright environments will degrade it faster.
* UV LIGHT on any object that may contain it breaks down the virus protein. For example, to disinfect and reuse a mask is perfect. Be careful, it also breaks down collagen (which is protein) in the skin.
* The virus CANNOT go through healthy skin.
* Vinegar is NOT useful because it does not break down the protective layer of fat.
* NO SPIRITS, NOR VODKA, serve. The strongest vodka is 40% alcohol, and you need 65%.
* LISTERINE IF IT SERVES! It is 65% alcohol.
* The more confined the space, the more concentration of the virus there can be. The more open or naturally ventilated, the less.
* You have to wash your hands before and after touching mucosa, food, locks, knobs, switches, remote control, cell phone, watches, computers, desks, TV, etc. And when using the bathroom.
* You have to HUMIDIFY HANDS DRY from so much washing them, because the molecules can hide in the micro cracks. The thicker the moisturizer, the better.
* Also keep your NAILS SHORT so that the virus does not hide there.

What is Spectrum doing to provide services to those in need during the COVID-19 crises?
So far Spectrum has been one of the most difficult companies to deal with during the COVID-19 crises.
Here’s some of Spectrum posted on their site.
PUBLIC ALERTS ON
COVID-19 SCAMS, FRAUDULENT WEBSITES,
EMAILS AND DONATION REQUESTS
Residents are advised that there have been reports of COVID-19 scams, malicious websites, email schemes, donation solicitations, and suspicious links that have come to the attention of law enforcement and public officials.
The Los Angeles County Chief Information Officer Williams Kehoe stated, “Malicious actors can prey upon those that are distracted by the COVID-19 pandemic and use it to their advantage. The Public needs to be mindful and careful, and avoid websites, phishing emails, and scams that engage people through false information about health crisis and steal personal user information and data. By clicking on fraudulent weblinks, hackers can deliver malware and then gain access to passwords, browsing information, credit card numbers, and other personal information. We all need to stay vigilant.” Residents should also be careful of hackers impersonating public officials and service companies trying to gain your personal information.
Precautionary measures to protect yourself from scams related to COVID-19:
- Independently verify the identity of any company, charity, or individual that contacts you regarding COVID-19.
- Check the websites and email addresses offering information, products, or services related to COVID-19. Be aware that scammers often employ addresses that differ only slightly from those belonging to the entities they are impersonating. For example, they might use “cdc.com” or “cdc.org” instead of “cdc.gov”.
- Be wary of unsolicited emails offering information, supplies, or treatment for COVID-19 or requesting your personal information for medical purposes. Legitimate health authorities will not contact the general public this way.
- Do not click on links or open email attachments from unknown or unverified sources. Doing so could download a virus onto your computer or device.
- Make sure the anti-malware and anti-virus software on your computer is operating and up to date.
- Research any charities site soliciting donations in connection with COVID-19 before giving any donation. For online resources on donating, visit the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) website: www.ftc.gov
- Be wary of any business, charity, or individual requesting payments or donations in cash, by wire transfer, gift card, or through the mail. Don’t send money through any of these channels.
- Be wary that scammers going door-to-door asking for donations in cash, Bitcoin, or PayPal. Do not feel intimidated to answer the door of possible solicitors.
Everyone should remain vigilant and take these precautionary measures to avoid being victimized by malicious scammers trying to profit from the COVID-19 crisis.
If you believed you have been scammed, please report to Temple Sheriff’s Station at (626) 285-7171.
