These next few weeks will be very different than what we are accustomed to. Please practice every recommended precaution to protect yourself, family and community from this coronavirus that is surely heading our way.
To stay informed and learn how to protect yourselves, please visit:
Our community is very social. With all the event cancellations taking place, it will be difficult having to practice social distancing for a few weeks. Keep in mind that people without symptoms can potentially pass along the virus. Therefore “Social Distancing” is a critical component of the strategy to arrest the spread of the virus- which is why all these cancellations are taking place. Whenever there is a need to be out in public, we all must do our best to avoid close encounters.
As scary and inconvenient as this situation is, we are very fortunate to live in a place like Queen’s Harbour. Our deeply ingrained culture of ‘neighbor helping neighbor’ will be a valuable asset in getting through this with a positive spirit. Please keep the lines of communication open with your neighbors in the event that someone you know is in need of help.
If you are feeling healthy, but suffering from cabin fever, there are many things you can do to maintain some control over your life during this time. All those things you have been meaning to do at home but have put off because you have been too busy- well, here is your opportunity.
Below are some recommendations from the communications committee to keep you constructively occupied.
Things to do if stuck at home:
Work on your yard, do those chores around the house you have been putting off, clean the garage, paint the base boards, clear out the pantry, sort your photos, work on your hobbies, catch up on old shows, read all the books you have been meaning to read, start that exercise routine or diet, take long walks, catch up with friends & family on the phone, go outside and smell the roses, feed the birds, watch the squirrels and focus on the small stuff we never seem to have the time for in our busy lives.
We bet you won’t get anywhere near finishing this list before our lives are back to normal.
We will all get through this, and soon this will just be a story to tell future generations and a lesson on how we behave under adversity. Let’s make it a story that will make us all proud.
