COVID-19 PANDEMIC – MEASURES ADOPTED BY POTTON

Since Monday March 16th, two days after the state of health emergency decreed by the government, the Municipality of the Canton of Potton has deployed several actions that are included in its pandemic intervention plan.

Pay attention to your sources of information.  As the situation evolves quickly, be careful not to read outdated information.
Your reliable and constantly updated source from hour to hour is the Quebec government website:
https://www.quebec.ca/en/health/health-issues/a-z/2019-coronavirus/situation-coronavirus-in-quebec/

AVOID TRIPS TO THE EASTERN TOWNSHIPS Like the Prime Minister of Quebec, the Municipality of the Township of Potton advised residents to avoid all non-essential travel to or from the Eastern Townships. The Quebec government has also ordered most tourist accommodations to shut down as soon as possible, including rental cottages, second homes for rent, bed and breakfasts and inns.  All reservations after March 27th should be canceled. Hotels and campsites for snowbirds are not affected by this new ban.

MUNICIPAL TAXES Given the extraneous pandemic situation which may affect the financial state of many, the Municipal Council, sensitive to the well-being of citizens, is canceling the interest on payments not made as of March 23, 2020. If necessary, the second payment in June may be postponed. We will keep you posted when a decision is made on this matter.
TEMPORARY SUSPENSION OF ASSIGNMENTS OF FIRST RESPONDERS According to the latest government directives, since March 16, 2020, and giving the current situation, calls to 911 requiring the intervention of First Responders will be handled differently by the ‘Direction médicale régionale de l’Estrie’, which will decide whether or not to route resources. The First Responders will only intervene in the case of: • CPR; • Unconsciousness; • Obstruction of the respiratory tract; • Anaphylaxis; • Traumatology; • Road accidents; • Severe hemorrhage. The First Responders will not intervene in other cases.

• The municipal office is closed to the public until further notice, but it is still possible to communicate with staff by phone or email;
•  All leisure, cultural and social activities planned at the Town Hall and the two schools in Mansonville are postponed until further notice;
• Citizens who have applied for a permit will be able to receive it by mail once their application has been approved. Payment must, however, have been received by mail or by electronic bank transfer;
• The monthly council meetings will be held behind closed doors in order to comply with government requests which are to limit the movement of the population and avoid the potential transmission of the virus;
• Since all resources are currently being mobilized to fight the spread of the coronavirus, usual municipal services may be disrupted, including the collection of residual materials, road maintenance or the issuing of permits. The municipality requests that citizens remain patient facing the situation.
• The residual materials depot, located at 5 chemin West Hill, will be closed until further notice.
• Drinking water remains very good in the village of Mansonville and in the Owl’s Head area. The authorities responsible for it are on constant watch.
• In case of danger regarding the condition of the roads, please call 911.
• The public washrooms located at André-Gagnon Park and at Place de la Grange-Ronde remain closed.

Services for people who are 70 years of age and older:

The Minister of Health and Social Services strongly recommends that people aged 70 and over stay at home. The Missisquoi-North Volunteer Center will provide a home delivery service for medication. This service may also be available to citizens returning from travel who have quarantined themselves voluntarily. To take advantage of this service, you may call The Familiprix Pharmacy at 579 441-8181.

CLSC Services:
The CLSC in Mansonville implements all government measures concerning COVID 19. The CLSC does not offer any screening or services relating to the coronavirus.
The local population is invited to call 450 292-3376 for information regarding health policies in place and screening locations.

Assistance at the Town Hall: 450 292-3313 ext. 0
If you are worried or anxious about the coronavirus, you can contact the toll-free line 1 877 644-4545.

About the disease:

In December 2019, a new virus from the coronavirus family, initially called 2019‑nCoV was detected in the city of Wuhan in China after an outbreak of atypical pneumonia was identified in the city. This virus is now called SARS‑CoV‑2. The disease associated with this virus is COVID‑19.

The first sick people to be linked to the outbreak developed their symptoms following exposure at a seafood and live animal market in the city. The exact source of exposure in the market remains unknown. The market was closed down on January 1, 2020. Since then, person-to-person transmission has been confirmed and the virus has been found in many countries around the world.

COVID‑19 is a new disease that had not been identified before the outbreak reported in December 2019. The infection often causes mild illness, but sometimes causes severe illness in some people; more specifically, people with a weakened immune system or a chronic disease. In rare cases, infection can lead to death.

A MESSAGE FROM JACQUES MARCOUX, MAYOR OF THE MUNICIPALITY OF THE TOWNSHIP OF POTTON

‘We are currently living in a difficult period which has resulted in the importance of the solidarity that has united most of us. It is comforting to see that most citizens understand the seriousness of the situation. However, some allow themselves to ignore government directives and put the health of others at risk. I therefore urge them, even if they are not concerned about their own health, to realize that they could be responsible for the sickness that could result in the death of other people. We must all act on this lack of responsibility.

I remind you that these measures of self-isolation and social distancing, as severe as they may be, are temporary and necessary because it is the only way to be able to return to normal life as quickly as possible.

On another note, many people are working hard to lessen the effects of the pandemic. The municipal council wishes to thank them all for their important contribution to the collective well-being.

That said, no one knows how long this crisis will last. I hope that the test of time cannot break the solidarity between citizens. Know that you are not alone, all municipal and community authorities are on alert to meet your needs.

If you, or someone you know is vulnerable and alone and in need of assistance, please report this to the Volunteer Center (CAB) for solutions at 450 292-3114.

To conclude, a note of optimism. All of our efforts save lives. As our Prime Minister says, all of us will get there.’

——–-Jacques Marcoux, mayor of the Municipality of the Township of Potton
