Local blood drive set for Tuesday

Hundreds of blood drives have had to be cancelled in recent weeks due to escalating concerns regarding COVID-19, AllianceHealth Clinton volunteer director Debbie Matz said, which has resulted in the loss of thousands of units of blood.

Per recommendations from the Oklahoma State Department of Education, Clinton Public Schools Assistant Superintendent Adam McPhail said that on Monday school meals will start being served just one day a week instead of five.

With kids stuck inside the house and needing an outlet to engage their minds, the Clinton Daily News reminds readers about its weekly Kid Scoop page.

Clinton students lined the streets one day this week to wave at teachers as they drove through neighborhoods, letting their students know they were thinking of them. Now that physical classrooms are closed for the rest of the school year, Southwest Elementary school counselor Kim Quintero said the unanticipated long separation is turning out to be hard on teachers as well as students.

As of Thursday morning this week, the number of positive COVID-19 cases reported in Custer County remained at three. Custer County Health Department Regional Director Terri Salisbury had some advice for people needing help interpreting the numbers being released on a daily basis now from the Oklahoma State Department of Health (OSDH).
