DEAF INTERPRETER: Hello my name is Rosemary.  I will be interpreting key points from Dr. Ghaly’s press conference today.

 

[IMAGE DESCRIPTION: The Coronavirus cell is a gray sphere with orange dots and red stems sticking out all around it.]

 

DR. GHALY: I know you are tired of me talking about COVID-19 again and again. Please continue to bear with me. But, this time of year, during the month of November, with colder weather, rain, and snow we are seeing COVID-19 positive cases going way up.  With businesses, stores, and different places open and with more people getting together and having a good time socializing and chatting we are seeing more and more COVID-19 positive cases.

 

[WHITE TEXT: State of California 1 Million+ Cases]

 

DR. GHALY: California now has 1 million people with COVID-19.   This means that COVID-19 is not going away soon.  The number is going up much more than we thought.  That makes me feel very sad, this is very serious.

 

[IMAGE DESCRIPTION: An empty hospital bed surrounded by medical equipment and wires.]

 

DR. GHALY: People have been  going to the hospital for COVID-19 reasons the past two weeks have gone up and beds are full again. Remember if beds are full and you need a bed for yourself, you might be told you have to go home because there is no bed for you.  Hospitals are especially full in Southern California and in Central Valley.

 

[WHITE TEXT: Southern California and Central Valley- Beds are almost FULL]

 

[IMAGE DESCRIPTION: A group of senior citizen men and women from various racial backgrounds. They are all smiling broadly and have their fists in the air, as if they were excited about something.]

 

DR. GHALY: For those of you who are age 65+ and those who are easily sick, please stay home.  If a senior citizen gets sick with COVID-19, there is a chance they will die. Please do NOT go out and socialize with other people.  While you are out, you could easily get sick, especially if it is indoors.  If you socialize, please stay outdoors. Don’t socialize with people who do not live with you. If you want to socialize indoors, limit it to those who live with you. But do not let people who live in other homes visit.

 

[IMAGE DESCRIPTION: Clipart images of types of travel like a train, plane, boat and car. Below that is a calendar (month) with 2 weeks circled in red. Next to the calendar is a woman sitting inside the outline of a house with the coronavirus cells outside the house.]

 

DR. GHALY: I really don’t want you to travel at all. But if you have to travel by car or plane, etc. When you arrive at your designation and back home, you must isolate (quarantine) yourself for two weeks.  Quarantine means that you stay in one place and only go out if you have to. Wear a mask, clean your hands, when you leave and when you come back.  Try to go out shopping when it is not busy, maybe early in the day or later at night. After shopping and eating, be sure to stay isolated again for two weeks.

 

[IMAGE DESCRIPTION: This image describes contact tracing. A blank face with a thermometer indicating a high temperature and wavy lines rising from the top of the head. This person exhales the coronavirus and infects two people. These two people now have COVID and they breathe out, infecting others. The cycle continues and people continue to spread the virus.]

 

DR. GHALY: Now with holidays coming up soon (Thanksgiving, Christmas, Kwanzaa, Hanukkah, etc.) please be careful.

[middle left] Inside a home with Christmas tree, four red stockings hung over a fireplace with a long green/red/lighted garland around the mantle. [bottom left] Hanukkah symbol with white block letters on the bottom: HAPPY HANUKKAH.]

 

DR. GHALY: Do not have large groups of people together chatting, laughing, and having a good time.  If you go out to eat, be sure that you are eating outside. You can take off your mask while eating and drinking but when you are done, put your mask back on. If you eat at a restaurant, please only eat outdoors with plenty of fresh air with tables at least six feet apart.  If you want to go to the mall, go to outdoor malls, not indoors.

 

[IMAGE DESCRIPTION: The Pfizer logo with an image of a needle being inserted into a vial.]

 

DR. GHALY: We announced recently that Pfizer has a new vaccine. But remember it is not ready to start using yet, we have to wait for approval. Remember that the vaccine will not be given to everyone from the start.

 

[IMAGE DESCRIPTION: Faceless images of the police, a firefighter, and a doctor.]

 

First hospital workers, then first responders such as ambulance workers, firefighters, police, etc.  Next will be senior citizens and those who live in nursing homes or group homes. Next will be teachers and essential workers who work with people everyday.  Then it will be everyone else.  Maybe you think that because the vaccine is almost ready that means you can go out and have a good time.  No.  The vaccine is not ready yet.  We do not know when it will be ready. Please continue to be careful.

 

[IMAGE DESCRIPTION: This image has four sections. The top section shows soapy hands with the word “Wash” in orange. Under that, a brown haired person wearing a blue mask with the word “Cover” in blue. Under that, an unlabeled blue spray bottle with the word “Clean” in orange. At the bottom, a woman standing with an arrow next to the words “6 Feet” in blue.]

 

DR. GHALY: Wear your mask, keep your hands clean. Keep 6 feet distance.  Please stay home.  Thank you
