DEAF INTERPRETER: Hi my name is Romduol and I’ll interpret Dr. Mark Ghaly’s presentation today, August 25

 

DR. GHALY: Just got the information that the number of new positive coronavirus cases is decreasing. That’s great news! Keep it up to follow the guidelines: wear a mask, social distance, and wash your hands.

 

IMAGE DESCRIPTIONS: Three images [first image] blue surgical mask with white elastic earloops. [second image] clip art of three figures with masks and and two way arrows between persons 1 and 2 and persons 2 and 3.  [third image] picture of lightskinned hands lathered with soap looking down at a sink and faucet.

 

IMAGE DESCRIPTION: up close picture of a syringe with a blue top and long needle with a blurred image of several syringes in rows in background.  At bottom of image is in large red font: FLU then on a red banner is white text: VACCINES.

 

DR. GHALY: There’s a concern in regard to flu season since it’s fall right now, however, we have vaccines that we can provide for your child to get in order to prevent getting the flu.  We also have social services and CalOES working together to develop a guideline for wildfire and pandemic. We encourage you all to book a room in a hotel if you could once they order you to evacuate. However, if you couldn’t either afford to reserve a hotel room or they all are full then reach your family or friend to see if you can stay at their place. There’s the guideline that  everyone needs to follow.

 

IMAGE DESCRIPTION: Picture of a black cloth mask

 

DR. GHALY: For example, you absolutely must wear a mask whether inside or outside for safety reasons.

 

IMAGE DESCRIPTION: White rectangle with center red wiggly circle with white text: STOP THE SPREAD COVID-19 in the center.  Red wiggly lines spread out from the center with different images and texts between these wiggly lines.  Text: DON’T SHARE DRINKS with two people standing and one gesturing STOP while holding a drink.  Text: DON’T SHARE FOOD with three different hands touching one plate of food. Text: DON’T SHARE BONGS OR PIPES with a hand holding a bong and pipe. Text: DON’T PICK UP BUMPERS (SMOKES) with three smashed cigarette butts. Text: NO CARD GAMES with hands holding five playing cards, Text: NO HUGS OR HANDSHAKES with one darkskinned shaking hands with a lightskinned hand.  Text: NO CROWDS WITH a large number of people standing side by side. Text: DON’T SHARE SMOKES with one hand offering cigarette to another hand gesturing to stop.

 

DR. GHALY: Also, avoid sharing your plate, bowl, spoon, fork, chopsticks, etc. due to the risk that it can spread the coronavirus. When you finish your meal, wash the dishes to keep it clean and to prevent a coronavirus outbreak.  If there’s no place that you could stay then you can go to shelter for temporary; maybe a few days, weeks, or months. However, there’s a guideline that you’re required to follow: each cot must be separated by at least 6 feet from each other and they can deliver the meal to your bed.

 

IMAGE DESCRIPTION: Picture of five doctors and nurses in scrubs and white coats with stethoscopes smiling and looking at the camera.

 

DR. GHALY: They also have doctors and nurses to monitor people who stay in a shelter. If there’s someone who happened to be sick then they will transfer them to a private room and have them quarantined, then check to see if they’re either sick or have the coronavirus. If they’re just sick then they will take care of them until they recover, then they can go back to shelter. But if they have the coronavirus then they will notify people who stayed at the same shelter that they were maybe exposed to the coronavirus and will take care of the situation. Even those who already left the shelter – they will contact them and ask them to go to the hospital.  I understand that some of you may have a concern that  you don’t want to evacuate even when they notify you to evacuate because you have health issues such as asthma, heart issue, weak immune system, etc. that you’re at risk when it comes to coronavirus.

 

IMAGE DESCRIPTION: Picture of a residential area with homes along a street and in the background is a hillside that has a trail ablaze with orange/yellow flames.

 

DR. GHALY: I understand you might feel scare, but you do need to leave immediately! You can contact them for more information or advice on what to do by calling them at 1-833-422-4255.

 

WHITE TEXT: 1 833 422 4255

 

DR. GHALY: You also can contact your doctor about your health issues, what mask should you wear, etc

 

IMAGE DESCRIPTION: Picture of a laptop on a table with a doctor on the screen in a white coat, smiling and looking at the camera.

 

DR. GHALY: You might have a question about what kind of mask should you wear? It depends on where you live. If the area where you live is close to wildfire and a lot of smoke then I would suggest you wear N-95.

 

IMAGE DESCRIPTION: Picture of N-95 mask with yellow loops to tie around the head.

 

DR. GHALY: But if you live in the area that isn’t at risk for wildfire and less smoke out of there then wear the same mask that you usually wear during this pandemic – cloth or surgery masks will be fine.  Thank you.

 

IMAGE DESCRIPTION: [first image] Picture of several different colors of cloth masks lined up overlapping each other.  [second image] Picture of blue surgical mask with white ear loops.
