NOTICE - In an effort to maintain the safety of our members and the public, in-person meetings are suspended until further notice. We are meeting via ZOOM each Wednesday at 7AM. Please contact us if you would like to join the meeting.

Please practice social-distancing and check in on your family and friends by phone.
Rotary monitors the coronavirus impact. 

The following are specific individual-level social-distancing measures recommended by the Public Health Agency of Canada:

Isolation:

This is for anyone who has symptoms (fever, cough, difficulty breathing) and is either suspected to have or known to have COVID-19. Do not leave home. Have supplies delivered to you and left at your front door, or receive them while maintaining a two-metre distance from the person delivering them to you. If you absolutely must leave home, such as for a medical appointment, wear a mask, do not use public transit, and keep two-metres away from others.

Self-isolation:

Also called voluntary home quarantine. This is for people who do not have symptoms, but have been in close, unprotected contact with those who are ill or their bodily fluids. Most who fit this category have been exposed to a patient who has tested positive for COVID-19 prior to their positive test, says Lynora Saxinger, infectious diseases specialist at the University of Alberta. Isolate yourself at home, and avoid contact with others.

Self-monitoring:

This is for people who have been potentially exposed to the virus and involves watching for the development of symptoms. That includes individuals returning from a cruise holiday, for example, Dr. Saxinger says. Most public health officials ask that you keep a symptom diary and check your temperature. If you develop symptoms, isolate yourself quickly.

 

Protective self-separation: This is for people who are at high risk of developing severe illness from the new coronavirus, such as older adults, those with compromised immune systems and those with chronic medical conditions, explains Dr. Saxinger. If you’re among this group, the U.S. Centres for Disease Control and Prevention says to avoid crowds as much as possible, and if there is a COVID-19 outbreak in your community, stay home as much as possible.
