Public health officials are working closely with our colleagues across the country and our partners in Nova Scotia to limit the spread of the virus and increase capacity within the health system to respond. During this state of emergency, we must all work together to help prevent the spread of COVID-19. Here are important steps we are requiring all Nova Scotians to take:
- Stay home as much as possible. When you are out, practice social distancing by limiting contact with other people (stay 2 metres (6 feet) apart) and have no more than 5 people together;
- Shop only for essentials, such as groceries and prescription medication and only have one person doing the shopping;
- If you’ve traveled outside the province, self-isolate for 14 days;
- If you feel unwell, go to 811.novascotia.ca and use the self-assessment questionnaire to find out if you need to call 811;
- Wash your hands often, avoid touching your face and clean surfaces regularly”
With these new conditions in place we will be postponing our SPRING SESSION of Girls Gone Gazelle which was set to begin on Tuesday, April 21st. Please note, we did not say cancel or defer because we fully intend to eventually train all 50 gazelles that were accepted into the SPRING SESSION (21 Dartmouth participants and 29 Cape Breton participants). Our team of volunteer coaches is gutted by the turn of events. But, we have to focus on the bigger priority which is getting through this difficult time both healthy and safe. Right now we can’t say when we will safely be able to train together. I can only assure you that your Gazelle will be included in the next session we offer. We are currently exploring options to create a VIRTUAL GIRLS GONE GAZELLE CHALLENGE for all of our 2020 Gazelles that we will explain prior April 21st. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me. Coach Stacy.
