What We're Talking About This Week - July 3rd

The COVID-19 pandemic has spotlighted senior care problems, with recent legislation aiming to prevent lack of resources or bad resources. Forbes compiled three ways to stay safe during this summer's flash floods, including staying alert and knowing where to go. Circumstances may force colleges and unversities to close early, and higher education institutions must communicate to preverve enrollment and credibility. Amid ongoing closures, schools are investing in cameras and security to boost bulding safety. A recent survey conducted by TimelyMD found that 85% of college students' mental health is affected by COVID-19. 

Key Points: 

  • 65% of students who utilized telehealth in the past were
    “satisfied” or “very satisfied” with the experience.
  • Over 60% of students indicated that the main causes
    of their stress and anxiety were the uncertainty
    about the future of their education, fear of falling
    behind in school coursework and struggles with
    remote learning
  • 75% of students are open to mental health support
    and utilizing telehealth to receive care.
  • Core Spaces, a student housing development company, conducted a similar survey of 2,500 students who live at 19 of its properties. Overall, it found 75% of students are feeling more anxious or stressed due to COVID-19

Filling Healthcare Shifts Amidst a Global Pandemic

In March, the COVID-19 pandemic began to overwhelm hospitals and healthcare facilities across the United States, inundating ICUs with critically ill patients and taxing healthcare workers. Hospital workers have bravely done everything possible to assist patients amid the first wave of COVID-19, but the workplace conditions are not sustainable.
