CLEARWATER - Pinellas County Commissioners received a briefing Oct. 21 on the county’s state of readiness to identify and treat patients infected with Ebola.

“I hope you have your flu shot,” Dr. Claude M. Dharamraj, Department of Health Pinellas County director, told commissioners. “More people will die in the U.S. from flu than Ebola.”

She explained that thus far the only Ebola outbreak in the United States had occurred in Dallas Texas.

“There is no case in Florida. No case in Pinellas and no cases pending in Pinellas,” she said.

She said the CDC had issued guidelines to determine a person’s risk of having Ebola, which include travel to West Africa or contact with someone with the sickness.

Dharamraj is charged with the responsibility of declaring when someone should be quarantined or isolated. But response is a team effort, she said.

Anyone “highly suspected” will be taken to the hospital and placed in isolation. They will be tested and checked daily. Healthy people who were living with a patient also would be isolated and observed under quarantine for 21 days.

DOH would be in charge of observing and monitoring the patient during quarantine. DOH would provide food and a guard to make sure the patient stays quarantined.

ST. PETERSBURG - Tampa Bay Rays Principal Owner Stuart Sternberg issued the following statement Friday, Oct. 24, regarding Joe Maddon's contract.

"Joe Maddon has exercised an opt-out in his current contract, a contract which was not scheduled to expire until after the 2015 season. We tried diligently and aggressively to sign Joe to a third contract extension prior to his decision. As of yesterday afternoon, Joe enabled himself to explore opportunities throughout Major League Baseball. He will not be managing the Rays in 2015. Joe has been our manager for nine seasons, and the foundation of success laid during his tenure endures. We thank him for all that he's meant to the organization."

SEMINOLE - Former St. Pete Catholic standout Justin Piazza dreamed of playing NCAA Division I football since he was a kid running plays in youth football.

After being accepted to the University of Missouri and taking time off from playing football, he was sure the opportunity would come. But he knew it wasn’t going to be easy.

“I definitely wanted to play again. I just didn’t know how it would work into my plans going to Mizzou,” said Piazza. “With last year, I just didn’t feel ready. I knew I wasn’t physically ready to where I needed to be. Plus trying to get myself established with college, everything was still new to me.”
