NOTICE OF CANCELLATION OF CWAG’s SATURDAY’S GENERAL MEETING (3/14/20)
Citizens Water Advocacy Group’s Board of Directors has cancelled this Saturday’s General Meeting out of an abundance of caution concerning the COVID-19 Coronavirus. We are sorry for any inconvenience this may cause our members or others who had been planning on attending.
Our decision to cancel was based on the following points:
• The epidemiology of Covid-19 is currently poorly understood. Science needs more time to understand this disease.
• Testing in the US has been and remains grossly inadequate. Despite the lack of widespread testing, over 1,000 cases have been diagnosed in the USA.
• Because we don’t understand the virus and we don’t know the extent of infection, great caution is in order.
• Seniors are much more strongly affected by the virus, and death rates sharply increase for the over 60 bunch, especially those with health issues.
• Community spread (infection without contact with known cases) is active across north America. What began near Seattle on Feb 25 has now spread rapidly and widely. Only 9 our of 50 US states have yet to report infections – that’s 82% in about 2 weeks!
• Infected people are contagious before symptoms appear in 2 – 14 days. What is worse, some infected patients do not show severe symptoms, so they become powerful vectors to spread the virus widely.
• In Arizona, initial cases in Phoenix have now spread south to Pinal and Pima county, for a total of 9 in AZ. It is likely already in Yavapai County.
• Containment (reducing exposure and spread) is the best strategy, but that has mostly failed. The government isn’t capable of protecting us – we need to take care of ourselves.
Minimizing exposure is the only action remaining to us. That means avoiding travel and crowds (when you must be near other people, maintain a safe interpersonal distance), washing hands, avoiding touching your face. These actions may be necessary for months!
