DEAF INTERPRETER: Hello my name is Alexis interpreting for Dr. Ghaly’s press conference today. This press conference has three main topics: upcoming holidays, COVID-19 update, and Questions with Answers.
DR. GHALY: The holidays are coming soon including Halloween and Dia De Los Muertos.
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.
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!
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
DR. GHALY: Now an update on our color coding categories. Please take a look.
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!
