COVID-19 news can be overwhelming, and can contribute to stress and anxiety. Take breaks from watching, reading, or listening to news stories, including those on social media. It’s good to be informed, but hearing about the pandemic constantly can be upsetting. Consider limiting news to just a couple times a day and disconnecting from phone, tv, and computer screens for a while.

Today, in Ontario, there are over 1,600 people waiting for a lifesaving organ transplant. This is their only treatment option, and every 3 days someone will die because they did not get their transplant in time.

But you can help. When you register your consent for organ and tissue donation, you let those waiting know that you would help them if you could.

On Thursday, April 1, 2021, Members of the H-N COVID-19 Vaccine Task Force, Board of Health Chair/Norfolk County Mayor Kristal Chopp, and Haldimand County Mayor Ken Hewitt attended the Cayuga Memorial Arena clinic to thank staff and community partners for the extraordinary efforts and teamwork demonstrated to date.

Members of the Task Force, Board Chair Chopp, and Mayor Hewitt were on site while the 20,000th dose of COVID-19 vaccine was being administered to a resident.

The COVID-19 Vaccine Task Force – a joint effort of the Haldimand-Norfolk Health Unit, Haldimand & Norfolk Counties (including Paramedic & Fire services), Norfolk General Hospital and West Haldimand General Hospital, Haldimand War Memorial Hospital, and both counties’ Family Health Teams – have been working collaboratively since late last year to coordinate a safe and efficient rollout.

Currently, individuals 70 and above are being contacted to book vaccine appointments, as are individuals with highest-risk health conditions as defined by the Ministry of Health. The Task Force will continue to administer vaccines to eligible groups in alignment with the Province’s vaccination framework.

Quotes:

“I am incredibly proud of the hard work, dedication, and collaboration demonstrated by our Vaccine Task Force and community partners,” said Board of Health Chair Kristal Chopp. “A lot of time has been spent developing a system that works smoothly and efficiently. If it weren’t for the staff, volunteers, and partners involved, we would not be where we are today,” Chopp added.

“The feedback we’re receiving on the clinics is extremely positive. Haldimand and Norfolk counties are very fortunate to have such a dedicated team of people leading our vaccine rollout efforts and making things work logistically. This is a proud moment for H-N, and I cannot thank everyone enough,” stated Haldimand County Mayor Ken Hewitt.

“The Health Unit will continue working diligently to manage the pandemic’s local impact and mitigate negative effects on the broader community of approximately 110,000 residents who live within the health district. Support from healthcare partners has been instrumental in moving the rollout forward in accordance with Provincial timelines,” stated Dr. Shanker Nesathurai, Medical Officer of Health for Haldimand-Norfolk.

“We’ve made great strides so far, and we’ll continue working hard with our team and partners until all residents – once they are eligible – have the opportunity to receive the vaccine,” said Sarah Page, Norfolk County Paramedic Chief and COVID-19 Vaccine Task Force Lead.

Working from home is a new reality for many during the pandemic. Working outside the traditional office space for extended periods of time can create unique challenges for our bodies.

One of the most overlooked strategies to increasing comfort is introducing movement and postural variation throughout the work day.

It important that people implement strategies to prevent injuries, increase comfort and take time for self-care.

Many people working with makeshift solutions might find themselves hunched over laptops on couches, standing and leaning on kitchen islands, or sometimes even trying to find a comfortable spot on their beds

Here are some helpful tips:

🚶‍♀️ Move around

One advantage when working from home is that you have the opportunity to change postures at will without the awkwardness of being in the middle of an open office space. Consider tasks that do not demand high use of the keyboard and the mouse, such as phone calls, zoom meetings, reading/research and email filing. Seek out opportunities to complete these while in a standing position or while stretching, and do this throughout the day every 45 to 60 minutes.

🪑 Working in seated position

The most important part of a workstation is a good chair.

If you don’t have a height-adjustable chair, use pillows or a cushion to elevate yourself
Use a rolled-up towel behind your back for lumbar support
Position a few books or a shoe box under your laptop so that the top of the screen is approximately at eye level.
No external keyboard? Raise the back of the laptop a couple of inches, allowing for a slight incline.
Use a rolled up yoga mat to provide support for feet and legs.

Working in standing positions

A kitchen island provides a great opportunity to work in a standing position, but office ergo concepts still apply. This includes keeping the top of the monitor at eye level while raising the keyboard and mouse to elbow level.

Use similar strategies to raise the laptop and don’t forget about the keyboard and mouse. Consider using long boxes, like game boxes, or an empty bookshelf piece to support the keyboard and mouse at the same level.

👩‍💻 Using a laptop

Laptops are preferred by many people when working remotely because they are portable, compact and versatile. However, with both the screen and keyboard connected, this forces our bodies into awkward postures.

Consider alternating between seated and standing positions as much as possible to allow for postural variation and muscle recovery.
Use an external mouse and a keyboard, and use the laptop solely for the screen.
Use an extra monitor to increase your visual real estate, and configure a laptop screen as your reference monitor in a dual monitor set up.

A comfortable work space can help keep you healthy when working remotely.
