QA COVID-19 Community Response Update #1

Mar
30

Dear Residents of our wonderful community,

Thank you for participating in the Queen Alexandra Coronavirus (COVID-19) Assistance Initiative.

Our mission – Zero deaths in our communities from COVID-19.  Wouldn’t that be fabulous??? We are very inspired by the AMAZING response from residents like you!!!

What has been accomplished so far?

  1. The Initiative was advertised over the last week by:
  2. We received >70 responses; the majority were to volunteer/help or receive updates.  What a caring community!!!!
  3. We have already received requests for assistance, which we matched with volunteers on a 1-1 confidential basis. 
  4. We are individually validating everyone that participates in 1-1 assistance, to prevent scams that are unfortunately exploiting the current situation. Please keep safe from scams.
  5. This creates a very useful network in our community - preparing us for what needs might come.

Plan for assisting individuals requesting assistance

“Chance favors the prepared mind”
—Louis Pasteur, pioneer of the "Germ theory of disease"

  1. As time goes on, and until the pandemic is overcome, there may be increasing need for isolation. We hope that anyone (even us and you) that becomes at-risk and/or has cold/flu symptoms, will enjoy the comforts of home with support from the committee.
  2. If you need assistance, now that your information is in our list, please just email us ([email protected])
  3. When an individual requests support, we will match them with a volunteer on a confidential 1-1 basis.  The information provided in the forms helps us tremendously – for example matching the tasks, risk groups, and location of people.  If you generously offered to assist, we will contact you personally when the need arises.
  4. Every volunteer working with other residents (e.g. to deliver) is provided with personal protective equipment, surface disinfectant, and ways of controlling exposure.
