Polio Plus response to the COVID-19 pandemic

[This content was sent to all Past District Governors in Big West Zones 26/27.  Roger Hassler and President Dave urged that it be put into a Gear Up for all members.]

A program begun by Rotary is employing thousands of health workers to address the Covid-19 pandemic.  The program is the Global Polio Eradication Initiative (GPEI) which includes Rotary’s PolioPlus program.   From the earliest days of polio eradication in the Philippines, the generosity and advocacy of Rotarians and our partners has nearly stopped polio, stopped Ebola from becoming an epidemic in Nigeria and now responds to Covid-19.  

Over the next four to six months the polio program is offering its tools, workforce and extensive surveillance network to support countries as they respond.  Globally, the polio surveillance network is being trained on Covid case detection, contact tracing, laboratory testing and data management.  GPEI is deploying its coordination mechanisms such as emergency operations centers and sharing physical assets like vehicles, computers and mobile phones to combat the pandemic. 

So what about polio itself?  The Polio Oversight Board made the hard decision to pause house to house vaccinations knowing that this may lead to an increase in polio cases. Polio surveillance will continue while also supporting Covid surveillance. The GPEI is working to ensure that once it is safe to do so, countries can be supported to rapidly resume polio immunization campaigns. 


Last Week, Apr-09-2020:  Discuss future (Zoom) Meetings
A group of six CP Rotarians met in a Zoom Meeting on Thursday to discuss the potential for online teleconferencing to be the medium by which we can restart CP Rotary Club meetings during this period of shelter-in-place due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Jim Buckley and Laurie Edwards obtained some coaching on Zoom teleconferencing software from Bill Tobin of the EDH Club.  Also, there is a recording of the EDH Club's last meeting that took place using Zoom that we can see here -- EDH Rotary Facebook Page -- where you can click on the grid of member faces to see the recorded meeting.  Our District said, "We are offering the Zoom Service to ALL clubs. ... All clubs are strongly encouraged to take up this FREE offer."
Action items decided during the meeting included:
- Several members were going to attend the Placerville Rotary meeting that would use the "GoToMeeting" software and conferencing service.
- Jim B. would send out an email recommending that members view the EDH meeting (as I did above) to see what they think of the Zoom experience in this context.  Done.
- President Dave would send out a member survey to determine interest and capability of the members in these types of meetings.
Next Week, Apr-16-2020:  DARK

We are exploring when we should start on-line meetings using Zoom or other teleconference software.   President Dave will keep members updated by email re: the status of future Rotary meetings and events.  
Please stay safe and be well.

Dave Crofut (based on his email to the club): On April 5, 2020, Rotary and Club icon Bob Clarke passed away due to natural causes.  Bob's friendly spirit, generosity and great ideas brought so much to our club every week. In addition, Bob's legacy includes dedicated service to us and to Rotary as Past President and Past District Governor.  We will have a special presentation in Bob's honor when we get back to having our weekly meetings. Our thoughts and prayers go out to his wife Joanne and the rest of his family.
