The Stratford Library posts DIY Storytimes on the website at stratfordlibrary.org/kids every Saturday. Families can enjoy these online storytimes any time. Themes for December include Ninjas (12/4) and Underwear (12/18).

The Great Family Read

December’s Great Family Read will be The Miraculous Journey of Edward Tulane by Kate DiCamillo.

Register for this program at stratfordlibrary.org on the Events page, and the Library will provide you with discussion questions, information, and fun activities related to the book that families can use to create an engaging literacy experience.

Breast Cancer Awareness

CARE’s October meeting

Wednesday, October 6th at 7 P.M. on Zoom

Each month CARE (Citizens Addressing Racial Equity) will discuss issues that affect and concern our community and how we’re able to enact change that benefits us all.

October is Breast Cancer Awareness month. Our guest speakers are Senator Marilyn Moore and Sandra Fisher.  The Zoom meeting link follows for you to join in the meeting:

https://www.facebook.com/StratfordCARE

According to the CDC:

    • Breast cancer is the most common cancer among American Women.
    • Mammograms are the best way to find breast cancer early, when it is easier to treat, and before it is big enough to feel or cause symptoms.
    • Symptoms can vary and some people have no symptoms at all. Symptoms can include…
  • any change in the size or shape of the breast
  • pain in any area of the breast
  • nipple discharge other than breast milk
  • a new lump in the breast or underarm

Risk Factors include 

  • Being a woman
  • Being older (most breast cancers found in women 50 and older
  • Having changes in your BRCA1 or BRCA 2 genes

Steps to reduce risk

  • Keep a healthy weight and exercise
  • Don’t drink alcohol or limit the amount of alcohol
  • If taking hormone replacements or birth control, talk to your doctor about the risks
  • Breastfeed your children if possible

*It is important to see a doctor right away if you notice any changes in your breast*

Stratford Lags Behind Fairfield County (and most of State)

Covid-19 Information

Sources: CT Department of Public Health Get the data; District 2 Councilwoman Kaitlin Shake; Hartford Health Care; Connecticut Hospital Association

Since April 2021, Stratford continues to have one of the lowest fully vaccinated rates in all of Fairfield County. The consequence of low vaccination and the Delta variant is our high community transmission rate.

Here in Stratford since early August our community transmission rate has been classified as High Risk designating us as a RED ZONE. The CDC, CT DPH, and World Health Organization recommend that vaccinated and unvaccinated people wear a mask when in indoor settings.

However here in Stratford the Mayor only reinstated a mask mandate for public buildings and excluded businesses—therefore ignoring public health official’s recommendations.

The science and data is clear: getting vaccinated and wearing a face mask will help save your life and slow the spread of COVID-19 as recommended for communities classified in substantial or high risk transmission zones. We all have to do our part to slow the spread and protect one another.

There is overwhelming evidence that by not having a mask mandate in Stratford is costing us.  State Comptroller Kevin Lembo warned that the “lingering uncertainty” surrounding the fast-spreading COVID-19 Delta variant is impacting Connecticut’s economy and “jeopardizing the progress made over the last few months.” He said concerns about the variant and rising infection and hospitalization rates have led to modest drops in consumer spending and consumer confidence.

And for all of those who continue to protest and argue about unmasking children, here’s a chilling statistic from the CT Department of Health:

In mid-August, the state had more than 65,000 child cases. Each week, there have been roughly 1,000 new infections. That brings the number of Covid-19 cases in Connecticut kids to more than 70,000 children right now.

Those infected kids have consistently made up around 18.5% of total Covid-19 cases in the state.

According to the latest data from the Connecticut Department of Public Health, a total of five children (Age 0-19) have died during the pandemic.

This spike comes after a decline in child cases in early summer.

“It’s not much of a surprise. We were seeing already an increase in cases in the pediatric population even before school started, and it really is all being driven by the Delta variant,” Dr. Melissa Held, pediatric infectious disease specialist and dean for Medical Student Affairs at UConn, said.

Many parents are wondering when the vaccine will be ready for their kids, especially as schools reopen.

“The transmission in schools is probably still very low as long as there are preventative measures being taken, including continued mask-wearing,” Held said.  “Really it’s not until we get you know, into the 80%, maybe higher percent of coverage in our communities, that we’re going to start to see a slower rate of spread.”

“Thankfully, we have had no deaths here at Yale New Haven Health among any of our pediatric patients, but we have admitted more than 180 patients under the age of 18 … so this is not a trivial disease,” said Dr. Thomas Balcezak, Chief Clinical Officer for Yale New Haven Health.

“Does [mask-wearing] impede airflow? I think it does, but I think it’s minimal,” he said. “Is it uncomfortable? Sure, to some people. Is there a medical reason to not wear a mask? There are no contraindications to wearing a mask.”

As for the issue of the effectiveness of masks in slowing the spread of coronavirus, there is little debate in the medical community.

Balcezak said there is “no doubt about the science behind wearing masks,” and that more than a dozen studies have demonstrated that wearing masks in crowds prevents COVID-19 transmission.

My Tax Dollars, Your Tax Dollars

The estimated “preventable cost” of treating unvaccinated adults for COVID-19 in Connecticut’s 27 acute care hospitals was $4.2 million for June and $5.3 million for July, according to a new analysis by the Connecticut Hospital Association.

The final tally could be higher, however. The Connecticut Hospital Association, which provided the figures, relied on a national model developed by KFF (Kaiser Family Foundation) and the Peterson Center on Healthcare that assumed the approximate cost is $20,000 per COVID-related admission.

“I think it serves as sort of a directional data point to show there is just an enormous strain on the system, generally, for COVID,” said Paul Kidwell, Senior Vice President for Policy at the Connecticut Hospital Association, who noted how the disease has greatly impacted families, hospital staff and hospital expenses. “Also, it is an important piece of data to show that it’s really important that individuals who are eligible to be vaccinated get vaccinated because the vaccines have been proven very effective in keeping individuals out of the hospital.”
