Thanks for visiting LorenAvedon.com! Please follow me on IG @lorenavedonofficial and send me a message on FB lorenavedonofficial page.

Most of you here probably know me from my near 40 years in the Martial Arts, and my Action Movie Career. As an only son, for the last 10 years I’ve been focused on taking care of my ailing Mother who passed in 2014 at 89 Years old, and most recently my 94 year old Father passed from end stage Parkinson’s. He was interred at Arlington Nation Cemetery with Full Military Honors. Now that I have moved to my home in Florida, I want to reach out to my International Friends and fans and get involved while continuing to pursue my passion for Martial Arts, helping implement Children programs (after school programs and Martial Arts in-school classes), Refugee and Environmental issues around the world.

As my duties as a devoted son have now been fulfilled, I look forward to making appearances at events, and showing up to support causes and making a difference. My family is all of you, and I look forward to what the future brings!  Please join my mailing list, visit my blog and keep in touch.  Use the contact form below to reach me or on the various QR Code images on the site to contact me at any time.

Have a blessed day and I look forward to hearing from you all.

The Corona Virus Panic… why?

Although this virus has been deemed a “Pandemic”. A series of issues have caused countries and economies to be severely affected. I plan on traveling in a few months and am on the cusp of making travel plans. I feel that our Health Department and the Doctor that appeared at the Senate hearings on the virus, Fauci and another who said that “we are not set up for this” made me quite cross. It seems that the Chinese, and Koreans took aggressive steps and those areas in their countries that were severely affected dealt with the problem effectively. As for the official who said “we’re not set up for that” he should be fired and in the next instance a person who has tact and knows how to keep people calm in a crisis should be placed in his position.

We can mobilize massive response militarily anywhere in the world but “we’re not set up for this” a poor comment on our US government. For now here are some things to look out for if traveling and even just going to the market:

-Is COVID-19 spreading in the area where you’re going?

-If COVID-19 is spreading at your destination, but not where you live, you may be more likely to get infected if you travel there than if you stay home. If you have questions about your destination, you should check your destination’s local health department website for more information.

-Will you or your travel companion(s) be in close contact with others during your trip?
Your risk of exposure to respiratory viruses like coronavirus may increase in crowded settings, particularly closed-in settings with little air circulation. This may include settings such as conferences, public events (like concerts and sporting events), religious gatherings, public spaces (like movie theater’s and shopping malls), and public transportation (like buses, metro, trains).

-Are you or your travel companion(s) more likely to get severe illness if you get COVID-19?
People at higher risk for severe disease are older adults and people of any age with serious chronic medical conditions (such as heart disease, lung disease, or diabetes). CDC recommends that travelers at higher risk for COVID-19 complications avoid all cruise travel and nonessential air travel.

-Do you have a plan for taking time off from work or school, in case you are told to stay home for 14 days for self-monitoring or if you get sick with COVID-19?

-If you have close contact with someone with COVID-19 during travel, you may be asked to stay home to self-monitor and avoid contact with others for up to 14 days after travel. If you become sick with COVID-19, you may be unable to go to work or school until you’re considered noninfectious. You will be asked to avoid contact with others (including being in public places) during this period of infectiousness.

-Do you live with someone who is older or has a serious, chronic medical condition?
If you get sick with COVID-19 upon your return from travel, your household contacts may be at risk of infection. Household contacts who are older adults or persons of any age with severe chronic medical conditions are at higher risk for severe illness from COVID-19.

-Is COVID-19 spreading where I live when I return from travel?
Consider the risk of passing COVID-19 to others during travel, particularly if you will be in close contact with people who are older adults or have severe chronic health condition These people are at higher risk of getting very sick. If your symptoms are mild or you don’t have a fever, you may not realize you are infectious.

So this issue has been handled so poorly there has been over reaction. It almost seems like a conspiracy to upset the economies and cause panic.

So take care and I’ll see you in Germany on May 23rd, 2020!
