DEAF INTERPRETER: Hello my name is Alexis [name sign A to 5 wiggle outward from heart] interpreting for Dr. Ghaly’s press conference today. This press conference has three main topics: upcoming holidays, COVID-19 update, and Questions with Answers.

 

[WHITE TEXT: TOPICS: Holidays, Coronavirus, Q & A]

 

DR. GHALY: The holidays are coming soon including Halloween and Dia De Los Muertos.

 

[WHITE TEXT: Holidays. IMAGE DESCRIPTION: Large orange pumpkin with a face carved out. IMAGE DESCRIPTION: White skull with bared teeth with black eyes and nose as an upside down heart.  The white skull is covered with orange and pink flowers with green stems and red dots.]

 

DR. GHALY: We want to go out and trick or treat, see friends, go to scary places, and eat candy but because of COVID-19, we can’t do that.

 

[IMAGE DESCRIPTION: Orange pumpkin bucket full of candy]

 

DR. GHALY: However, we have alternative solutions to celebrate Halloween.  You can hide candies at your house for a candy hunt or can celebrate through video chat to show off your costume, share a story, etc. You even can have a costume contest to see who has the best costume and who gets the prize!

 

[IMAGE DESCRIPTION: light skinned father, mother, and daughter wearing costumes: father as pirate with white and black painted face, mother in a red dress with red devil horns, and daughter with a black witch hat with a purple/orange dress. Table has pumpkins and candies on it and blurry decorations on the back wall.  The three family members all have their mouths wide open roaring with hands up like claws, looking into the screen.]

 

DR. GHALY: If you want to go out to see how people decorate their home for Halloween you can enjoy the view from your car, you can look around and take pictures; just DO NOT get out and walk around, stay in your cars and drive around.

 

[IMAGE DESCRIPTION: White house with two steps to the front door with a fall wreath, with a porch covered with fall leaves, orange pumpkins, yellow flowers, and a white skeleton laying across the pumpkins by the walkway]

 

DR. GHALY: If you want to get together I would suggest limiting three groups for a gathering at your place. Wear a mask and continue social distancing. Hang out for two hours at the most. Same for Halloween party.

 

[IMAGE DESCRIPTION: picture of several people walking in the streets all dressed up a wide variety of costumes.]

 

DR. GHALY: Want to celebrate Dia De Los Muertos, can set up the photo of your loved one who passed away and decorate by the window for people who can see the photo of one who are honoring for Dia De Los Muertos. Not limited to your family, can be your friend, dog, cat, etc. Can do video chat to share the story to honor those who passed away that you care for.

[WHITE TEXT: COVID-19

IMAGE DESCRIPTION: Gray base cell with several red stems spiking out all around.]

 

DR. GHALY: I will now provide an update on the coronavirus which seems to be improving, however, two counties have not improved that much. Fresno and Riverside.

 

[WHITE TEXT: FRESNO, RIVERSIDE]

 

DR. GHALY: We had a conversation with Fresno and will see if they improve or not. I hope they will improve their numbers soon.  Haven’t reached Riverside yet, but will update once we discuss the plan soon.  Right now it’s winter season which means flu season. So, I encourage you to get a flu shot, if you don’t have one then contact the local to get a flu shot to prevent flu from the breakout.

[WHITE TEXT: QUESTION & ANSWER]

 

DR. GHALY: Someone asked since the death rate due to coronavirus seems to be low. Does that mean we can have gatherings, have fun time together? The answer is no because we don’t get the COVID-19 positive cases update right away. We usually update these numbers every Tuesday;  the reason is because offices are closed on the weekends. Just because it seems the death rate has gone down, we still must be very careful  So, please continue to follow the guidelines.

 

[IMAGE DESCRIPTION: Four rows of color bars. The top row is purple with images of skull bones and open hands gesturing “stop”. The second row is red with exclamation points (!) and open hands gesturing “stop”. The third row is orange with thumbs up signs exclamation points. The fourth row is yellow with happy faces and thumbs up signs.]

 

DR. GHALY: Now an update on our color coding categories. Please take a look.

 

[RED TEXT IN CENTER: RED] [WHITE TEXT: Colusa, Kern, Kings, San Benito, Stanislaus, and Sutter]

 

[ORANGE TEXT IN CENTER: ORANGE]  [WHITE TEXT: Alameda, Placer, and Santa Clara]

 

[YELLOW TEXT IN CENTER: YELLOW]  [WHITE TEXT: Sierra]

 

DR. GHALY: The restrictions depend on what color your county is in. It is important that you follow the guidelines then you will see your county move down toward and into the yellow code.  Please keep following the guidelines.  That covers the three topics covered today during Dr. Ghaly’s Press Conference.  Thank you!
