The Corona Virus Advisory for all participants – IMPORTANT
We have sourced the following information from the Ministry of Health advisories, verified online sources and known medical contacts.
Some info and recommendations on the the Corona Virus:
1. Drinking warm water is effective for all viruses. Try not to drink liquids with ice.
2. Wash your hands frequently as the virus can only live on your hands for 5-10 minutes, but – a lot can happen during that time – you can rub your eyes, pick your nose unwittingly and so on.
3. You should also gargle as a prevention. A simple solution of salt in warm water will suffice.
4. Can’t emphasise enough – drink plenty of water!
1. It will first infect the throat, so you’ll have a sore throat lasting 3/4 days
2. The virus then blends into a nasal fluid that enters the trachea and then the lungs, causing pneumonia. This takes about 5/6 days further.
3. With the pneumonia comes high fever and difficulty in breathing.
Rekha and I (DJ) have had a meeting with the hotel management – Zone Palace by the Park today- to find out their plan to mitigate risk for all our attendees and made some requests on our own. Based on these discussions, the following decisions were arrived at.
- Buffet on all days – Hotel personnel pre-vetted for symptoms prior will serve Carnival attendees individually on all days. This is to prevent touching of common serving utensils by participants – Confirmed
- Temperature of all attendees will be checked by trained hotel personnel using an Infra Red contact less thermometer on arrival at the hotel for all TC attendees (Thanks, Mani for this!)
- Additional drinking water will be kept in all rooms and Conference areas to keep all attendees hydrated. This is a strong recommendation against dehydration.
- Hand sanitizer has been arranged for all attendees to be used at regular intervals. Will also be kept in bathrooms, lobby and outside the conference area.
- More disposable tissues to be placed in the rooms and the conference area –
- Random check of temperature on all days of the conference by hotel staff.
- Common washrooms will be cleaned more frequently than the regular schedule.
If found necessary, medical facilities are available a short distance from the Conference venue. A hotel car is available with a driver round the clock for exigencies. I Thanks, Gaurav)
There have been several messages and calls from registered participants asking for a status update, having already booked their tickets. To you, we say, the event is ON, we have already checked into the Conference hotel today, and are waiting to welcome you at Jaipur.
