1) If you are elderly or parents with young kids and require any support (for example, getting groceries, medicine, flat tire, car needs jump etc.), please fill out Google form and a team of volunteers will get in touch with you and provide immediate assistance. We will maintain your complete privacy.

[JCNC] President's message on Corona Virus

posted Mar 8, 2020, 4:24 PM by JCNC Technology

Jai Jinendra,

 I am writing to give you updates on the prevalent Coronavirus situations and key decisions are taken tonight by your Executive Committee.

 JCNC executive leadership is closely monitoring the advisories and updates provided by CDC, WHO, US State Department, CA State, Santa Clara County and other healthcare groups. We are also watching Coronavirus heatmap and other resources published, almost on a real-time basis, by news aggregators and news outlets.

 As by now most of us know, on Mar 4 California Governor Gavin Newsom declared health emergency in the state.

 There are now 20 people who have tested positive for the virus in the Santa Clara County. On Mar 5, new guidance was issued by the County of Santa Clara’s Public Health Department. New Guidance for Persons Hosting Mass Gatherings and Large Community Events: “At this time, we recommend postponing or canceling mass gatherings and large community events where large numbers of people are within arm’s length of one another.” Please click on the link for the full text of county guidance:

 https://www.sccgov.org/sites/phd/news/Pages/new-guidance-new-covid-19-3-5-2020.aspx

 The U.S. death toll from the Coronavirus grew to 13, with CA announcing its first fatality linked to the viral infection and Washington state reporting its 10th death. We have 33 cases in the Bay area and 62 cases in California of which 17 are through community spread. As of the writing of this email, Overall, The U.S. has at least 200 cases of the virus, according to figures from Johns Hopkins University. Worldwide Coronavirus cases surpassed 100,000 and killed more than 3,300. Some 54% of those infected have recovered.

 Today your executive committee huddled into the conference call and discussed evolving situations. We were actively looking at the ways to avoid large gathering or avoid gathering of across the age groups so we don’t contribute to spreading the virus or put our community members at risk, especially the age groups which are more prone to the worst impact of the virus. In your own safety, we request senior citizens, young kids or pregnant women to avoid gatherings at JCNC or elsewhere. Based on the CDC recommendations we would also like to avoid the possibility of spreading any germs in the JCNC facility.

 For the health and safety of JCNC members and visitors we have canceled all events – JCNC as well as private events over the next 4 weeks – up to Apr 5. 

 We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused. For the first time in the 20 years history of JCNC, events are canceled due to a public health crisis. Your executive committee has taken this decision with a heavy heart. We solicit your support as your state and local community take preventive steps to slow down the spread of the virus. Please forgive EC members. Micchami Dukkadam. 

Bhawan is open but we urge you to avoid visiting if you can. The website is being updated announcing the cancellation of events.

 We urge you to be prepared now to protect yourself and your loved ones.

 Please stay home if you are sick, especially if you have a fever or flu-like symptoms, we request you to NOT come to JCNC. We are requesting this to ensure the safety of members and visitors. 

We have attached the CDC poster. Please take a moment to read and follow the instructions.

 JCNC's goal is to keep our community healthy, happy and protected.

Once again, for the health and safety of JCNC members and visitors, we have canceled all events – JCNC as well as private events till April 5. 

 Micchami Dukkadam. 

 Biren Shah

JCNC Cares For You Frequently Asked Questions: Corona virus Disease 2019

posted Mar 8, 2020, 11:28 AM by JCNC Technology

What is a novel coronavirus?

A novel coronavirus is a new coronavirus that has not been previously identified.

How does the virus spread?

This virus was first detected in Wuhan City, Hubei Province, China. The first infections were linked to a live animal market, but the virus is now spreading from person-to-person. It’s important to note that person-to-person spread can happen on a continuum.

The virus that causes COVID-19 seems to be spreading easily and sustainably in the community (“community spread. Community spread means people have been infected with the virus in an area, including some who are not sure how or where they became infected.

Can someone who has had COVID-19 spread the illness to others?

The virus that causes COVID-19 is spreading from person-to-person. Someone who is actively sick with COVID-19 can spread the illness to others. That is why CDC recommends that these patients be isolated either in the hospital or at home (depending on how sick they are) until they are better and no longer pose a risk of infecting others.

Can someone who has been quarantined for COVID-19 spread the illness to others?

Quarantine means separating a person or group of people who have been exposed to a contagious disease but have not developed illness (symptoms) from others who have not been exposed, in order to prevent the possible spread of that disease. Quarantine is usually established for the incubation period of the communicable disease, which is the span of time during which people have developed illness after exposure. For COVID-19, the period of quarantine is 14 days from the last date of exposure, because 14 days is the longest incubation period seen for similar coronaviruses.

What is community spread?

Community spread means people have been infected with the virus in an area, including some who are not sure how or where they became infected.

 

What JCNC is doing to stop community spread?

Health and safety of members and visitors is our top priority. JCNC has taken following proactive steps:
