We first and foremost we want to thank all the 1st responders who are on the front lines. Thank you for your service and keeping us safe during these difficult times. Stay safe and God bless.
We have been trying to work the Covid-19 virus story recently. But now we have a local lawyer bullying us and trying to shut us down. He has served us a Cease and Desist letter. So if anything does happen to Rockford Scanner in the future, we will not hesitate and post EVERYTHING on this topic. (if anything happens to RS)
You want to bully RS and use your local law firm to bully us, we will not tolerate this. We are pretty confident the Bar Association will not be happy with you and your law firm if you continue to bully us for trying to work news stories and keeping the community informed on possible news events.
We have been asked unofficially from staff from local hospitals if any businesses will be willing to donate some N95 masks to the local hospitals. Sources have told us the local hospitals have been having to reuse their masks and have run short on N95 masks. And they are asking the public unofficially to please donate some N95 masks to the hospitals. If you are a business or know someone who has several N95 masks, to please donate them to the local hospitals. Swedish American we have been told needs them most.
Source sent us this: ” Can you ask any local companies to donate any N95 mask or any ppe equipment that can be used by nurses and drs they can spare? The ER staffs are having to reuse their mask due to shortages. Please and thank you.”
Update: The hospital told someone who was wanting to donate their masks to the hospital. That they needed to email ppe.donations@Illinois.gov for any donations
