What Is COVID-19? 

COVID-19 is the name of the disease caused by a coronavirus that emerged in China in December 2019, called: severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2, or simply, SARS-CoV-2. The incubation period for COVID-19 is usually anywhere from 2 to 10 days, with most people experiencing symptoms on day 5, with a maximum of 14 days. Not everyone is exposed to the virus will get sick.

  • COVID = Coronavirus Disease
  • 19 = 2019

The term “novel coronavirus” means a new coronavirus that has not been transmitted from human to human before.

What Is A Coronavirus?

Coronaviruses are a family of viruses that cause respiratory tract infections in humans. Seven strains of human coronaviruses are known, of which four produce the generally mild symptoms of the common cold.

Seven strains of human coronaviruses are known, of which four produce the generally mild symptoms of the common cold:

  1. Human coronavirus OC43 (HCoV-OC43)
  2. Human coronavirus HKU1
  3. Human coronavirus NL63 (HCoV-NL63, New Haven coronavirus)
  4. Human coronavirus 229E (HCoV-229E)

– and three have symptoms that are potentially severe:

  1. Middle East respiratory syndrome-related coronavirus (MERS-CoV), previously known as novel coronavirus 2012 and HCoV-EMC
  2. Severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus (SARS-CoV or “SARS-classic”)
  3. Severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2), previously known as 2019-nCoV or “novel coronavirus 2019”


How Does COVID-19 Spread?

It’s thought the virus that causes COVID-19 spreads primarily through human to human contact via respiratory droplets produced when an infected person coughs or sneezes. A person can also become infected by touching surfaces or objects that have been contaminated with virus droplets, then touching their own mouth, nose, or eyes allowing the virus entry into their system.

  • Prevent the spread by washing your hands often with soap and water, for at least 20 seconds
  • Use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol if soap and water are not available

Social Distancing

Minimize the chances of catching or spreading COVID-19 by taking social distancing precautions. Social distancing means to make changes in your routines to avoid close contact with other people, as much as possible. Can’t get sick if you’re at home!

  • Stay home as much as possible
  • Order grocery/food/drinks delivery
  • Shop or take public transportation during off-peak hours
  • Avoid overcrowding in elevators or other enclosed spaces
  • Wash or sanitize your hands after touching communal surfaces
  • Stay in a separate room, away from other people.
  • Stay home!
    • Do not use Calgary Transit, take taxis, or use ride sharing such as Uber.
    • Do not go to work.
    • Do not go to school.
  • Limit the number of visitors to your home
    • Only have visitors who you need to see, keep visits short.
    • If ordering a delivery, advise them ahead of time that you’re in isolation.
  • Avoid contact with others
    • Stay in a separate room, away from other people.
    • Use a separate washroom if possible.
    • Ensure shared spaces have good airflow.

CBC provides an interactive map that shows the current number of confirmed COVID-19 cases by province, as well as by country with a world map.

What To Do If You Think You Have COVID-19

You MUST self-isolate for 10 days if you develop COVID-19 symptoms, even if they’re mild. Stay in quarantine from the beginning of symptoms or until you’re well, or for 10 days, whichever is longer.

You MUST self-isolate for 14 days if you have been exposed to someone confirmed to have COVID-19.

You MUST self-isolate for 14 days if you have recently returned from travel outside Canada, even if you feel well.

  • If COVID-19 symptoms develop at any time while in isolation, you must then continue self isolation for 10 additional days. Stay in quarantine from the beginning of symptoms or until you’re well, or for 10 days, whichever is longer.

Wear A Mask

  • If you need to leave your home to see a health care provider or for other important reasons.
  • When around other people for any reason.
  • If you’re unable to wear a mask, other people around you should wear one.

Self Isolation

Self isolation is recommended to prevent catching or spreading of infections, such COVID-19 or the flu. You can’t get anyone else sick if you’re at home watching Netflix and playing video games.

Health Link 811

Health Link 811 is a free service provided by Alberta Health which allows Albertans to call and speak with a registered nurse to ask health related questions or to book referrals with clinical services. You can stay anonymous if you prefer but it’s best if you have your Alberta Health care number ready when you call so they can keep an ongoing record of your concerns. If you’re outside of Alberta you can call 1-866-408-5465 toll free to reach Health Link.

  • Do not call 911 for COVID-19 issues or concerns
  • Only call 911 for life or death emergencies

Things To Do During Coronavirus Isolation

If you’ve been ordered to quarantine yourself because you’re sick or might be sick with COVID-19, or if you’re just taking precautions to protect yourself and others because you’re awesome, you’re going to need things to do while you wait things out. The usual quarantine period is 14 days. It’s going to get boring. We want to help! Here are some suggestions for somethings you can do for (mostly for free) to pass the time.

Real talk: If you’re ever feeling really stressed/sad and you want to speak with someone, reach out to the Distress Centre. There are people available 24/7 that just want to help you with your mental health problems, anonymously. You can vent, ask for advice on how to cope with things, get information on other resources, plus many more things.


YYCforum.ca

Remember forums? They still exist today, but they aren’t nearly as popular as they used to. Before social media, text, or instant messaging all we had were web based forums, and IRC. They were one of the early meeting places of internet culture, allowing people to connect locally over things like hobbies, music, or video games. They were wild and fun, awkward and silly. It was good times.

Come say hi!

YYCforum.ca is our attempt to re-create that. A web based forum for Calgarians to use to share news, ask questions, stay connected.

You may remember:

They were THE places to be back in the day. They all fizzled out one way or another over the years.


Join Our Calgary Discord Server

Discord is a chat program, kind of like MSN chatrooms, Yahoo chatrooms and IRC chatrooms all rolled into one. Anyone can create their own Discord server for free, and on that server they can add different chat rooms (called channels). People join the server and can chat in any of the channels, like #politics or #food and so on.

Stay Motivated! – No More Zero Days 

Have you ever heard of zero days? They’re days when you get absolutely nothing accomplished at all. This guide will teach you how to avoid that. Read it as often as you need to.

No more zero days! Following these 4 rules could change your life


Practice Self Care

  • Get enough sleep
    • Suddenly having lots of free time in your life will make it easy to ruin your sleep pattern. Try your best to keep a healthy sleep routine, wake up at the same time and go to bed at the same time every night. Your body will thank you, especially if you’re over 30. Want specifics? Go to bed by midnight, wake up at 7:30 AM.
  • Take frequent breaks
    • If you find yourself addicted to your phone, the news, video games or anything else, try and take a break every 20 minutes. Get up, tidy, move around, stretch. If you’re sitting at a computer for long periods, install this eye care Chrome browser extension. It’ll remind you to take breaks and focus your eyes on something else for a few seconds.
  • Look good, feel good
    • In the morning, when you get up, shave, eat, get dressed as if you’re going to work. Spend the day looking good, and you’ll feel good, accomplished.
  • Give yourself time to adjust
    • Losing your job and adjusting to unemployment can take time. If you’re isolated in quarantine — don’t forget that this is only temporary! Go easy on yourself.

First, don’t panic, there are safety nets to help you. You will be okay! If you are eligible for EI, apply immediately.

Dedicated Shopping Time For Seniors

Some places are referring to this as ‘Golden Hour’ shopping time.

Because seniors and people with disabilities, suppressed immune systems or other serious health problems are considered more at risk from the Coronavirus, several grocery stores and other businesses in Calgary have modified their hours to allow for dedicated time for them to shop for things they need. Dedicating the first hour to people that are high risk gives them a chance to shop in a freshly sanitized and opened store. Fewer people will be allowed in the store, extra staff will be around to assist with anything, everyone will practice social distancing. Very cool to see!

Folding@home (FAH or F@h) is a distributed computing project for simulating protein dynamics, including the process of protein folding and the movements of proteins implicated in a variety of diseases. It brings together citizen scientists who volunteer to run simulations of protein dynamics on their personal computers. Insights from this data are helping scientists to better understand biology, and providing new opportunities for developing therapeutics.

Basically you use your run a program on your computer that crunches data to help scientists fight the COVID-19 coronavirus. Because it uses CPU power, it’s best to run it when you’re not using the computer.

“This initial wave of projects focuses on better understanding how these coronaviruses interact with the human ACE2 receptor required for viral entry into human host cells, and how researchers might be able to interfere with them through the design of new therapeutic antibodies or small molecules that might disrupt their interaction.”


Conclusion

Hopefully things go back to normal, soon.
