Becky Perlow/ABC News(NEW YORK) — Amid the closure of restaurants and restrictions on nursing homes, veterinary practices are also starting to feel the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic.One clinic in Maryland is taking steps to slow the spread of the virus by offering its clients curbside check-in to keep both its staff and its human clients safe and healthy.“There’s no way to be able to see a dog (or) cat from home,” explained Laila Bolsteins, a vet technician at the Laytonsville Veterinary Practice in Montgomery County, Maryland.“So the best we can do is see the animal without the people present, just to reduce some of that human contact,” she said.The clinic instituted the new protocol on Tuesday, instructing its clients to call or text when they arrive. Veterinary staffers then meet the animal’s owner at their car and bring the animal inside, where, Bolsteins said, the appointment continues on as normal.Well, almost normal.“Hello?” asked Dr. Claire Godwin as she began to examine a small black and white Schnauzer on her exam table.“Hello!” responded a deep, scratchy voice from a cell phone speaker sitting a few inches away. The voice belonged to Donald Mowbray, who was sitting just outside the building in his silver sedan.“Hi Mr. Mowbray, how are you?” asked Dr. Goodwin, as she began to inspect the dog’s ears and teeth.“Fine, Dr. Godwin. It’s good to hear from you,” responded Mowbray over the phone.Bolsteins said that having pet owners speak to the doctors while they wait outside keeps them apprised during the examination, which helps them feel like they’re in the room with their pet.“[They] can talk through any issues they might be having, or why they are here for the appointment … as well as any after-appointment thoughts, if they need any refills on medication or if they need any other appointments scheduled,” said Bolsteins.Mowbray, who at 82 years old is at a higher risk of contracting COVID-19, said he is impressed that the veterinary practice is working hard to keep him safe.And because “we’re not in with the doctor,” said Mowbray, that allows the staff members to keep themselves safe too.Officials at the Centers for Disease Control said they had not received any reports of pets or other animals contracting the COVID-19 virus, but cautioned that further research is necessary to understand how animals could be affected.“Out of an abundance of caution, it is recommended that those ill with COVID-19 limit contact with animals until more information is known about the virus,” the AVMA posted on its website. “Have another member of your household take care of walking, feeding, and playing with your pet. If you have a service animal or you must care for your pet, then wear a facemask; don’t share food, kiss, or hug them; and wash your hands before and after any contact with them.”To protect themselves and their furry clients, the Maryland clinic’s staff is taking steps to limit cross-contamination. But just like doctors and nurses who treat humans, staffers there are running into equipment supply issues.“We are trying to be much less wasteful, while still being cautious of not spreading germs,” explained Bolsteins.”So we tried to switch up which sprays we’re using, like bleach, and then specific cleaners for the cages.”“And we try to waste a little less in terms of masks for humans. We try to label them, write our name on them, so we can keep our own little personal stash of things that are safe to use,” she added. “It’s just been something to keep in the back of our minds that we don’t have necessarily an unlimited amount of resources like we have had in the past.”Copyright © 2020, ABC Audio.

In truth, the margin of victory ought to have been more emphatic than the exquisite volleyed finish by Ozil in the first half at the Emirates Stadium.The game’s first chance was carved out by Newcastle, Jamaal Lascelles’ header from a free-kick being beaten away by Petr Cech, but the first half belonged to Arsenal.Nominal full-backs Hector Bellerin and Ainsley Maitland-Niles pushed up into midfield to offer width to the Arsenal attack, while in midfield Ozil and Jack Wilshere swapped positions at will.That left Alex Iwobi to drift across the front line and he seized on a fancy flick by Alexis Sanchez only to see his shot charged down.Sanchez was the next to go close, shooting over the bar before Maitland-Niles intercepted a loose pass in the 13th minute and skipped away from two tackles before sending in a low shot which ruffled the outside of the Newcastle net.When the opening goal arrived after 24 minutes, it came as a result of a dazzling interchange between Wilshere and Iwobi.The latter squared his cross into the path of Sanchez and when DeAndre Yedlin blocked the Chilean’s shot, Lascelles headed clear only to Ozil, who hooked the ball into the far corner with a majestic finish.– Negligible response –Newcastle United’s Isaac Hayden (R) vies with Arsenal’s Jack Wilshere (L) during an English Premier League match at the Emirates Stadium in London on December 16, 2017 © AFP / Glyn KIRKNewcastle’s response was negligible, primarily because they could not hold on to the ball and because they were too busy chasing Arsenal shadows.Bellerin and Granit Xhaka were the next players to try ambitious efforts for the home side before Ozil set off on a mazy run which almost produced a memorable second goal for the German.Twice he exchanged passes with a teammate, on the second occasion with Sanchez, but having squirmed his shot from an acute angle under the body of Newcastle keeper Rob Elliot, he could only watch on as Lascelles prevented it from crossing the line.Sanchez then struck an early shot just wide as half-time approached.The second half began in a strangely muted atmosphere. The tireless Iwobi did his best to inject some passion back into the Arsenal faithful with a bullish run into the box which forced Elliot to save at his feet.Then, almost out of nowhere, Newcastle carved out their most dangerous attack of the match with Jacob Murphy cutting inside to force Cech to parry away his low shot.Arsenal relied so heavily on their technique and teamwork that they appeared at times to lack the individual bravery to simply take a player on or run beyond him to open up the stubborn defence facing them.With 17 minutes remaining, Wenger sent on Danny Welbeck and Olivier Giroud.France striker Giroud made an immediate impact, heading down a Sanchez cross to Wilshere who drove it at the legs of Elliot.Newcastle mounted late pressure on the Arsenal goal with Joselu having a goal-bound shot deflected and Ayoze Perez shooting narrowly over, but it could not prevent them slipping to another defeat.0Shares0000(Visited 3 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Newcastle United goalkeeper Rob Elliot (R) comes out to try to block an attempt by Arsenal midfielder Mesut Ozil (L) during an English Premier League football match at the Emirates Stadium in London on December 16, 2017 © AFP / Glyn KIRKLONDON, United Kingdom, Dec 16 – Mesut Ozil’s spectacular strike was enough to give Arsenal a 1-0 victory over Newcastle as the Gunners ended a three-match winless run in the Premier League on Saturday.Arsene Wenger’s side boosted their bid to qualify for the Champions League via a top-four finish and in the process condemned relegation-threatened Newcastle to an eighth defeat in their last nine games.
Ranjan Sharma: I remember INDIA TODAY’s reporting of some matches in Sharjah a couple of years ago and how much praise was sung for Sachin. What happened after that?Rohit Brijnath: Sachin is still the best batsman in the world. It is absurd that people should ask him to give up,Ranjan Sharma: I remember INDIA TODAY’s reporting of some matches in Sharjah a couple of years ago and how much praise was sung for Sachin. What happened after that?Rohit Brijnath: Sachin is still the best batsman in the world. It is absurd that people should ask him to give up the captaincy because the rest of the team doesn’t bat well enough. It’s too early to decide whether he’s capable or not and switching captains just now would not help.The problem lies not in the head of Sachin Tendulkar but in the amateur style of the BCCI. A flawed system will produce a flawed team.Ashok Dutta: In view of the rout in Australia, is it not time to ban all commercial ads by the cricketers so that they concentrate more on the game and less on earning a quick buck? RB: I can understand your anger, and there are times all of us feel the cricketers get paid too much. But I think they are entitled to make the best living they can. After all, unlike almost any other profession they have a very short career span. In most sports, by the time you’re in your mid-30s your career is over.So banning them from commercial ads would not be just. However, if the players are getting Rs 90,000 per one-day match, that sum should be reduced to say Rs 60,000. But there should be a bonus clause – if they win they get an extra Rs 30,000.Dilip: Don’t you think Azhar would have been a better bet than the middle order in the team to Australia? advertisementRB: There is no doubt Azhar would have done better than some of our batsmen. The reason he was excluded has nothing to do with cricketing ability. Quite simply, many players don’t want to play with him.
