Add New Hampshire Teachers to Phase 1B

Petition to Governor Asa Hutchinson
Include salons & spas in the assignment of Covid vacinnations in the State of AR.
Hairdressers, esthetician’s, massage therapists and nail technicians need to be vacinnated for Covid-19 in the State of Arkansas before the general population and should be assigned a place in the line for vaccination. These careers CAN NOT be done six feet away or without physically touching clients and that risk needs to be recognized. After being forced to close due to risk of exposure & spread of Covid-19 during the shutdown in Spring 2020, we all saw the need and demand for services like a haircut but the state fined cosmetologists for operating. Now the State has overlooked that continued risk of exposure for the employees and has not assigned a place in the line for salons & spas to get the Covid vaccine. However, several career fields that can be done at a safe distance and were never forced to shut down due to risk of exposure like finance and media have been be assigned in group 1C. Salons & spas have assumed great risk during the pandemic to stay operating in order to keep employees paid and clients serviced. Salon & spa technicians have to physically touch clients and it’s essential to keep these businesses operating. We’ve worked diligently since reopening to keep employees and clients safe and deserve to mitigate the risk as soon as possible. Please consider the health and the assumed risk that your favorite hairdresser, esthetician, nail tech or massage therapist has taken on to service you during a deadly global pandemic and sign our petition insisting that the state include us in group 1B with manufacturing or at the least before finance & media....because while your banker is important, they don’t have to touch you!

UNMASK Colorado High School Basketball Players!
It is with great concern for the overall health and safety of Colorado student athletes that we respectfully write to you and ask you to rescind the rule which you recently put into place requiring basketball players to wear masks while competing. This requirement defies a growing body of scientific data about significant negative health effects of physical exertion while wearing a mask. This is directly from the Mayo Clinic, “it's recommended that you perform low- to moderate-intensity exercise rather than vigorous exercise while wearing a mask. This is because of the decreased airflow allowed through the mask which can affect breathing and your ability to properly regulate body temperature." Basketball players not just throughout the country, but also globally are currently competing in various sports without being required to wear a mask. Whether on the field, on the court or otherwise engaged in competition, their ability to breathe while exerting themselves is not impaired. It hardly makes sense that Colorado athletics would be an outlier in this regard. To be forced to restrict one’s breathing by order of variance issued by the CDPHE to a board of athletic governance while engaging in an otherwise healthy activity not only makes the activity more difficult, but it also could threaten the health and safety of our athletes, especially for those who may have underlying breathing issues, such as asthma. To require basketball players to “mask up” while competing is a penalty they should not be required to suffer. Please amend this rule to the CHSAA variance and let our athletes breathe. Respectfully, Colorado parents and student \ athletes

Let's plant one million new trees in Portland, Oregon Parks together NOW!
Portland, Oregon parks are lovely. There are many mature trees and beautiful amenities. One great change would be to add new generations of trees. The more trees we plant the more oxygen we create and the fresher the air will be. Also, more trees will equal less lawn mowing which will also improve the air by removing the gas exhaust from lawn equipment. Noise will also be lessened due to less lawn mowing. It's a win-win-win + we can harness the energy of the community to help with labor and enthusiasm. Let's plant 1 million trees in Portland, Oregon parks as soon as possible. Come join our FB group working to make good things happen for trees in Portland, Oregon.https://www.facebook.com/groups/keeptreesstanding/ Background: https://www.nytimes.com/interactive/2019/08/09/climate/city-heat-islands.htmlPortland Tree Stories: https://www.kgw.com/article/news/local/portland-first-city-ever-to-chronicle-personal-tree-stories/283-618268893Portland Parks & Recreation is proud to announce the publication of the final report!Growing a more equitable forest: Portland's citywide tree planting strategyhttps://www.portlandoregon.gov/parks/article/705823

"X the X waiver" for APRNs and PAs too! Let us save lives!
We are Oregon Health Care Workers: Nurses (RNs), Physicians (MDs/DOs), Physician Assistants (PAs), and Advanced Practice Registered Nurses (APRNs) including Nurse Practitioners, Midwives, Nurse Anesthetists and Clinical Nurse Specialists. We are especially committed to the compassionate treatment of persons with opioid use disorder in our state, where 8 of every 100,000 Oregonians die from opioid overdose annually. While there is great promise in the January 15th, 2021 HHS announcement stating physicians will no longer be required to complete additional “X-waiver” training in order to prescribe medication containing buprenorphine, we are disappointed that this does not extend to ALL clinicians eligible to prescribe this life-saving treatment. The elimination of this time-consuming and unnecessary obstacle in fighting our country’s opioid epidemic is monumental, but it also excludes two groups of qualified frontline practitioners. For more than 50 years, PAs and APRNs have provided primary, acute, and specialty healthcare services by diagnosing, treating, and prescribing medications. Since PAs and APRNs were first given authorization to prescribe buprenorphine in 2016 they have made great progress in increasing access to medication. APRNs and PAs were the first X-waivered clinicians in 285 rural counties covering 5.7 million residents. As of 2018, less than 5% of all eligible US clinicians had completed the requirements to obtain an X-waiver. Furthermore, while there are fewer waivered clinicians per capita working in the rural areas that APRNs and PAs are most likely to serve, PAs and APRNs have been primarily responsible for managing buprenorphine there. Without question, buprenorphine treatment (and in turn, HIV and Hepatitis C prevention) in rural areas cannot succeed or grow without empowering PAs and APRNs. PAs and APRNs are clinical leaders in America’s interprofessional healthcare system. It is critical that DHHS grants APRNs and PAs the same exemption from X-waiver training as physicians. Thank you in advance for your respectful consideration and support. Sincerely, Ben Colburn, MD-Family Physician Laurel Hallock Koppelman, DNP, FNP-C, APRN-Nurse Practitioner Shelby Lee Freed, MSN, FNP-BC-Nurse Practitioner
