COVID-19 Pandemic Update and Emergency Preparedness Plan (EPP)
To the residents of Fallowfield Village,
We are currently experiencing a new reality in our daily lives with the outbreak of the COVID-19 virus. We want to assure you that your community association is doing its best to provide a network of support for all residents within our village. We are providing some information and links below which should be of help.
Fortunately, we have been working on an Emergency Preparedness Plan (EPP) for the village which we are now implementing. Over the next couple of days, you will hear from your Sector Captains (neighbours) who have volunteered and will be reaching out to your households to provide assistance if needed. If you live alone and want someone to check in on you, either by phone or in person, please let your Sector Captain know.
**If you do not know who your sector captain is, please contact email@example.com**
It is important to remain calm and safe and remember that with the proper precautions, we will all get through this together. Look after yourself and family first and then any neighbours who may need assistance.
We encourage everyone to use best-practices to increase the health of both yourself and your families by accessing information provided by public health authorities. These personal decisions include considering rebooking any travel plans so as not to put yourself or your family at unnecessary risk.
To reduce the spread of germs including the flu and the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) Ottawa Public Health recommends that you:
• Wash your hands often with soap and water, or use hand sanitizer
• Avoid shaking hands with people
• Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth unless you have just washed your hands with soap
• Cover your cough and sneeze with a tissue or into your arm, not your hand
• If possible, stay home if you are sick
• Avoid visiting people in hospitals or long-term care centres if you are sick
It is still recommended to get your flu shot<https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=https-3A__www.ottawapublichealth.ca_en_public-2Dhealth-2Dtopics_influenza-2Dflu.aspx&d=DwMFaQ&c=1DZIkx4jOIlvfMtcLpfPyPmZzSBjlyimzVeGh0wiekU&r=2nMhUmQxTVwMoadkXlBpdcl3ke5IuMOJW8cGe6uJYX4&m=Sw-bcd1PTn6aq-c8PVsLRIod0Spfcu7LT3mfSR-QYdU&s=nMN0zbf2y9n-68SXCRNRbL0yCTTEiluwsJ8jJT3MpAw&e=> if you haven’t already as the flu virus is still circulating in the community.
Ottawa Public Health remains the lead for the COVID-19 Pandemic Plan in the City of Ottawa.
Be safe and be well.
