DEAF INTERPRETER: Hello, my name is Romdoul and today’s interpretation will include the information given from b Dr. Ghaly, during the press conference given on September 15th.

IMAGE DESCRIPTION: Image of Coronavirus Cell with a gray round cell with many red stems poking out from the gray cell.  White plus symbol (+) and below the plus symbol is a picture of a firefighter in full yellow gear with a hose spraying water at a forest fire.

DR. GHALY: The first topic today is an update about COVID-19, specifically what to do for those experiencing fires during COVID-19. Many of the things we ask you to do may conflict with each other.  We understand. I want to provide you with some specific suggestions.

IMAGE DESCRIPTION: Image with white text: ROSH HASHANAH & YOM KIPPUR with cliparts of star of David around the words and cut up apples, jar of liquid, and other food items on a table that fades as the picture moves from the food at the bottom to the stars of David at the top.

DR. GHALY: As we begin to prepare for Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur which are traditions observed by the Jewish community.  We encourage you to observe these traditions via video online platforms while staying in your own homes.

IMAGE DESCRIPTION: Clip art in yellow of an outline of a house frame with a silhouette of a person inside the house.

DR. GHALY: If you don’t want to go online and want to get together, choose a place that is outside (not inside), please use your masks, and stay distanced.

IMAGE DESCRIPTION: Picture of several people sitting apart on the green grass in a park surrounded by green trees

DR. GHALY: If you bring food, do not share, because that could be a way to spread the virus.  If you bring food, bring it only for yourself, do not share.  We still don’t have a vaccine to protect the public from COVID-19.

IMAGE DESCRIPTION; Person with blonde hair and glasses standing in a doorway bent over handing out candy to several children dressed in various costumes holding trick or treat containers waiting for candy.

DR. GHALY: With Halloween coming soon.  I know children enjoy going out for trick or treat and dressing up.

IMAGE DESCRIPTION: Picture of two hands in an orange pumpkin face Trick or Treat bin with an international no symbol with red circle and slash in the middle of the picture.

DR. GHALY: Every year people go from door to door knocking hoping to get candy, chocolate, lollipops, etc.  Don’t do that this year  Health and science researchers are trying to figure out how to have a safe Halloween this year. Once that is set up we will let you all know.  As safety is most important.

IMAGE DESCRIPTION: State of California map with each county outlined in a different color of either yellow, green, or light red. Below this map is white text: -Inyo, -Marin, -Tehama.

DR. GHALY: California has several counties and cities with agriculture and farm workers.  We are seeing that COVID has improved with decreased numbers in Inyo, Marin, and Tehama counties.  They have been moved from purple to red.

IMAGE DESCRIPTION: Four rows of color bars. Top row is purple with images skull/bones  (three) and stop sign with hand in middle (two). Second row is red with exclamation point (!) inside a triangle (two) and stop sign with hand in middle (one).  Third row is orange with thumbs up sign (two) and exclamation point (!) inside a triangle (one). Fourth row is yellow with happy face sign (two) and thumbs up (one)

DR. GHALY: Remember I explained our color coding system before? Purple and Red are the most serious high cases of COVID and easy transfers from one person to another. Orange and Yellow are the less serious with fewer cases and lower chance of transfer from one person to another.

IMAGE DESCRIPTION: State of California map with each county outlined in a different color of either yellow, green, or light red CHANGES QUICKLY to State of California map solid light yellow.

DR. GHALY: Our goal is to see the whole state of California become Yellow!  This is exactly what we want to see.

IMAGE DESCRIPTION: White rectangle with figures of one person at the top in blue with red arrows point down to two figures of persons in purple.  Each of the two purple persons have red arrows going down to two more figures of persons in purple to four person.

DR. GHALY: In San Diego we are seeing an increase in the number of people with COVID-19.  The reason we are seeing this increase is because too many people are in businesses that are opening too soon and see what happens when they don’t follow the guidelines, we see an increase in the number of people with virus.  If you stay home, you are only with the people that you live with (family or friends in the same home).  When you get a call from contact tracing to ask you where have you been before you got the virus, and you say that you went to this store and that business, etc.  That is how we get a list of where people are getting in contact with the virus and that is how we know exactly how the virus is spreading in San Diego.

IMAGE DESCRIPTION: Clip art in yellow of an outline of a house frame with a silhouette of a person inside the house. Next to this image are three yellow questions marks with a figure of a person outside the house.

DR. GHALY: During the recent wildfires we are ordering people to get out, leave their homes, evacuate and find shelter.  But with COVID-19, we are ordering people to stay home, not leave their homes.  Those two messages are the opposite and may create some confusion.  Add to that, we are entering the flu season.  My advise is that you stay home, don’t gather together, don’t socialize with people outside of your home, stay home.

IMAGE DESCRIPTION: Picture of white N95 mask with yellow filter and yellow straps.  Red circle around the filter.

DR. GHALY: Some of you are living near fires and need to go out for shopping or run errands, because of the smoke still wear a mask but instead of cloth mask, use N95 mask that has a special filter in the hole that keeps bad air out and lets you breathe clean air.  Only go out if you have to.  Go out for a short time.  Because of the bad air, get out, get what you need, then get home.

IMAGE DESCRIPTION: Picture of a man with dark hair wearing a zip-up sweater, looking at his hand, holding his chest with one hand and coughing into his fisted hand.

DR. GHALY: California has partnered with several different companies to make masks, so that when we are out of masks we are quickly able to restock and bring them in.  We know that supplies are low in some areas.  California has opened a company to make masks quickly and send them out.  That is our back up plan so that we do not ever run out.  If you have filters, AC, have good circulation, keep filters all clean. Close windows, doors, and vents to outside air.

IMAGE DESCRIPTION: House on a grassy hill with a large raging fire burning up part of the house with lots of smoke.

DR. GHALY: When you see a fire getting close to you and if you are given an evacuation order, then you must leave, you must get out.   You have limited time to pack your things and leave.  You will be given a short stay at a hotel to make sure you are safe.  Or you can stay with friends/family in their home.  If you can’t find a hotel with open rooms, you can’t stay with friends or family, then your third choice is to go to a local shelter with many beds, they provide food but can’t share food.  By following strict guidelines we prvenve th transfer of the coronavirus while in shelters.  Again shelters are the last resort if hotels and family/friends are not an option.    Some gyms have been changed into shelters with rows and rows and beds. That is another option

IMAGE DESCRIPTION: White Rectangle with four rows of images and text.  Top row is image of hands with soap next to orange text: Wash.  Second row is a head with a blue mask next to blue text: Cover. Third row is outline of a blue spray bottle next to orange text: Clean. Fourth row is a woman with long hair in blue clothes with a light blue arrow next to her next to blue text: 6 Feet.

DR. GHALY: Remember to stay home, wear a mask, wash your hands, and stay 6 feet apart.  Thank you.
