ZOOM virtual meetings hosted by Fibromyalgia London Group!!! Easy, fun, informative, a perfect way to stay in touch during these unprecedented, difficult times. https://fibrolondongroup.ca/2020/04/19/when-in-doubt-zoom-it-out/
We’re in a situation with the COVID-19 pandemic that none of us has ever been in before. Everything that isn’t essential is shutdown, for now in global effort to “Stop The Spread” of COVID-19. We are all (many) implementing SOCIAL DISTANCING in order to contain the coronavirus and “flatten the curve” so as not to overwhelm the medical system and most importantly, our healthcare workers.
In line with the cancellations and postponements of events, activities and programs, the FLG Leadership Team has followed suit, and cancelled physical meetings – now we’re online, on Zoom!!! https://fibrolondongroup.ca/2020/04/19/when-in-doubt-zoom-it-out/
Though the Fibromyalgia London Group has CANCELLED ALL ACTIVITIES, WORKSHOPS AND EVENTS scheduled to take place from now until further notice, we’re still here for you. Educational Workshops, Sharing Circle sessions, Brown Bag Chat Clubs, KNIT Happens! are online and we’re having a great time!!! The Leadership Team will continue to monitor government and other professional recommendations concerning this international crisis and hopefully, we can recommence our monthly activities in June or July or whenever we’re told is “safe”, with modifications. We’ve only POSTPONED, not cancelled Dr. Rhonda Gilby’s “Science of Happiness” educational event, hopefully to a date very soon. Until then, join us on ZOOM, we can stay in touch! https://fibrolondongroup.ca/2020/04/19/when-in-doubt-zoom-it-out/
Steps Fibromyalgia London Group is taking/advising to ensure the safety and well-being of all members due to Coronavirus (COVID-19):
1.Wash your hands often and with soap for approx. 20-30 seconds (count or sing a song to time it). The average person touches their face anywhere from 15-50 times an hour, while it’s impossible to wash your hands each time, be aware when you are doing it. Ways to stop touching your face include but are not limited to: be aware of triggers that could be making you touch your face and avoid them. Do something else with your hands. In a world with more people this is a good habit to break. #WashYourHands After washing your hands #safehands remember your phone carries germs too!
2. Use alcohol-based hand sanitizer ( at least 60% alcohol) when you’re not able to wash your hands.
3. No contact. Stay 2 metres or 6 feet away from others, #PhysicalDistancing #SocialDistancing is vital to keep us all safe. But we can stay in touch without touch. Please, no hugs, handshakes – let a smile be your expression of affection or respect. Just smile and wave, smile and wave!
4. Don’t panic, be cautious. If you have traveled out of the country in the past 14 days, stay at home, that means stay home, not out for a quick trip to the grocery store, not the packed Costco, not to see your family or friends, stay home, away from everyone else. If you have a cough, flu-like symptoms, whether or not you’ve been traveling, see a doctor; better safe than sorry. Also, wear a mask so you don’t spread any illness to others.
5. Use common sense, if you’re sick, don’t go out (self-isolate, take some “me” time). If you’re worried about getting sick, talk to professionals, do not rely on medical information on the internet.
We will continue to monitor the situation day-by-day. Please keep checking back here for updates. https://fibrolondongroup.ca/
