Forestry Commission recently held three
workshops in Gainesville, Marietta and Mansfield to help communities
develop a personalized Community Forest Storm Mitigation Plan that focuses
specifically on trees and ways to avoid or mitigate the damage they
cause during a storm or other catastrophic event. Community Forest Storm
Mitigation plans serve as a guide for assessing current storm readiness,
for creating a summary of your community's current forest management
program and as a storm mitigation checklist. Presentations from the
workshops are available and Georgia Forestry Commission staff are available
to assist your community.

Emory Online Screening Tool
Emory doctors have helped to create a new online tool C19check.com that allows people to screen themselves for symptoms of the coronavirus and to receive recommendations on what to do next.
The website is a way to self-triage and is designed to help prevent a surge of patients at hospitals and health-care facilities, according to Emory infectious disease expert Dr. Carlos del Rio. He also said this can help people get answers quickly rather than waiting on hold for hours on a helpline.
