COVID Reminder

March 23rd, 2020 - COVID-19

亲爱的会员和朋友们,

您现在可能已经知道了,目前为止纽芬兰和拉布拉多省已有24例确诊和疑似新型冠状病毒 (COVID-19) 病例 (as of March 23rd, 2020),主要分布在纽芬兰东部,中部和拉布拉多地区。已证明新型冠状病毒对免疫力系统低下的老年人危害尤其严重,我们身边都有家人和朋友属于这一高危人群。

在当前这个特殊时期,纽芬兰华协会的理事们谨在此重申世界卫生组织,纽芬兰和拉布拉多政府以及加拿大政府为所有人的安全而建议采取的以下措施的重要性:

1)经常用肥皂和水洗手至少20秒,或用含酒精的手部消毒液进行手部消毒;
2)保持社交距离–彼此保持至少1米的距离; 纽芬兰政府建议此距离增加一倍(2米),以提高安全性;
3)在需要时进行自我隔离–纽芬兰省现在要求所有从其他国家和省份返回纽芬兰的人员进行至少14天的自我隔离,无论您是否表现出新型冠状病毒的症状;
4)避免用手触摸眼睛,鼻子和嘴巴–这些都是病毒进入人体的途径;
5)遮挡咳嗽和喷嚏–防止病毒通过飞沫进入空气中传染给其他人;
6)了解新型冠状病毒的症状–如果您有咳嗽,发烧和呼吸困难,请立即寻求医疗帮助,但要确保接收的医疗中心提前知道您的到来,以便为隔离和治疗做好准备;
7)随时了解疫情-纽芬兰省和加拿大政府一直定时提供每日更新,以应对这次疫情。请在尽可能的情况下,让我们保持冷静的关注新型冠状病毒的准确咨询;
8)警惕欺诈–很不幸的,一些诈骗犯借着人们对疾病的恐慌和不确定性,开始蠢蠢欲动。请对通过电子邮件,电话或社交媒体,对弱势群体散播恐慌谣言,以达到盈利目的人提高警惕。

有关更多信息,请访问世界卫生组织(有中文版),纽芬兰和拉布拉多政府,加拿大政府,并访问您关注的本地或国家新闻媒体。

还请通过电话或短信的方式来关注华人社区中老人和其他弱势群体的安全,尽自己的一份力,并在需要时提供帮助,如购买必需的食品,药品和其他安全物品。保持社交距离具有极大的挑战性,但是如果我们团结一致,这是可以挽救许多生命的选择。尽管困难重重,但是请避免家人和朋友之间的拜访,其中包括拜访祖父母,与朋友一起喝咖啡/茶,聚餐或我们习以为常的各种社交聚会。在这非常时期,我们将以非同寻常的谨慎措施来共同取胜。

如果您对华协会的理事会有任何问题或建议,请随时提出,我们将竭尽全力以安全有效的方式提供帮助。我们谨在此对大家在面对这次前所未有的疫情面前所付出的努力致以诚挚的感谢,感谢大家为保护自己和他人所做出的努力。风雨之后见彩虹,希望我们在度过这严峻的时刻后与大家再次聚首。
Dear Members and Friends,

As you are likely aware now, the province of Newfoundland and Labrador now has 24 confirmed and presumptive cases of the COVID-19 disease (as of March 23rd, 2020), in Eastern Newfoundland, Central Newfoundland and Labrador region. This disease has thus far proven particularly harmful to senior populations, many of whom are our families and friends.

During these challenging times, the executives of CANL would like to reiterate the importance of the following steps, recommended by the World Health Organization, the Government of Newfoundland and Labrador, and Government of Canada, for everyone’s safety:

1)      Regular, thorough hand washing – handwashing with soap or alcohol based products for at least 20 seconds helps to kill the virus that may be on your hands
2)      Maintaining social distancing – maintaining a distance of at least 1 metre of 3 feet; NL government has recommended twice this distance for extra security
3)      Self-isolate where needed – the province of Newfoundland and Labrador now requires all travellers returning internationally or from other provinces of Canada to self-isolate for minimum of 14 days, regardless of whether you are showing symptoms of COVID-19
4)      Avoid touching eyes, nose and mouth – these are entry points for the virus
5)      Cover and contain coughs or sneezes – to keep droplets from entering air and potentially infecting others
6)      Know the signs of COVID-19 – if you have a cough, fever and difficulty breathing, seek medical help immediately but ensure the receiving medical centre know of your arrival in advance to best prepare for isolation and treatment
7)      Stay informed – the Province of NL and Government of Canada have been providing regular, daily updates for development in combating this disease. Please stay tuned where possible and remain calm and informed
8)      Look out for scams – unfortunately fraudsters have been preying on the uncertainty surrounding this disease. Please remain vigilant and keep on the look out for nefarious intended emails, phone calls or social media contents that look to inspire fear and take advantage of those vulnerable.

For more information please visit World Health Organization (there is information available in Chinese), Government of Newfoundland and Labrador, Government of Canada, and visit your preferred local or national news outlet.Please also do your part in ensuring seniors or other vulnerable people in our community are safe by checking up on them by telephone or messaging, and provide help in procuring essential food, medicine and other safety items only when necessary. Social distancing can be challenging but this is the choice that can save many lives if we unite in this cause. It is also imperative, although difficult, to ensure you limit or refrain visits between family and friends, including visits to grandparents, having coffee/tea with friends, potluck or other social gatherings that we are accustomed to. These are extraordinary times and with extraordinary cautionary measure we will prevail together.

If you have any questions or suggestions for the executives of CANL at this time please feel free to forward along and we shall do our utmost to assist in a safe and effective manner. Thank you everyone for your effort in helping all of us contain and protect ourselves, and we hope to see everyone again once we have weathered the worst together.
