Message from the Fallowfield Community Association

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 info@ffcassociation.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.


Personal Health
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.

Sincerely,

Martin Clarke  President Fallowfield Community Association
