Message from Moreland City Council - 28 July 2020

 

Victoria is still experiencing high numbers of coronavirus cases.  Many of these cases have been spread through workplaces.  If you are sick, you must not go to work.

 

If you have coronavirus symptoms, are waiting for test results, or have been diagnosed with coronavirus, you must stay home.

 

Self-isolating can be difficult, particularly if it affects your job.  The Victorian and Australian governments are offering financial support to make it easier for you to stay at home.

  • A one-off $300 payment: for Victorian workers who are waiting for test results and need to miss work.
  • A one-off $1500 payment: for Victorian workers who have coronavirus and need time off work, are a close contact of a confirmed case, or are caring for a child under 16 years of age who has coronavirus.

 

To learn more about these payments and other financial support, visit: dhhs.vic.gov.au/covid-19-worker-support-payment

 

You are not alone.  Support is available for you, your community, your business and your family.

MESSAGE FROM MORELAND CITY COUNCIL – 22 JULY 2020

 

Last week we wrote to you about face masks.  Since that message, it has become mandatory to wear a face mask outside of your house. 

 

From Thursday 23 July, when you are outside your house for 1 of the 4 essential reasons, people 12 years and older must wear a face covering.  If you do not, you may receive a $200 fine.

 

More information will be released this week.  Stay up to date at dhhs.vic.gov.au/face-masks-covid-19

 

Where can I get a mask?

 

You can buy single use face masks (surgical masks) or reusable masks (cloth mask) from shops like chemists or hardware stores.  Many local gift and clothing shops are also now selling masks.  You can make your own reusable mask.  If you don’t have a mask, you can use a scarf or any other face covering.

 

Face Coverings and Exercise

If you are jogging, cycling, or doing other hard exercise, you do not need to wear a face covering, but must carry one with you and wear it when you stop the hard exercise.  If you are walking you must wear a face covering.

 

Face Coverings and Car Travel

If you are travelling in a car alone or with someone from your household, you do not need to wear a face covering.  If you are driving with someone who doesn’t live with you, you must wear a face covering. You should cover your face before you get out of your car. 

 

DHHS has provided instructions on how to make a face mask in your language at  coronavirus.vic.gov.au/vietnamese

 

To learn more about Moreland Services in your language visit moreland.vic.gov.au/covid19 or call 9280 1915.

Message from Moreland City Council

Victoria is experiencing high rates of coronavirus cases.  The best way to keep safe is to stay home, keep 1.5 metres apart from other people, wash your hands regularly, and get tested if you have symptoms.

If you are  outside your home and you can’t stay 1.5 metres apart from other people (e.g. on public transport or grocery shopping) the Victorian Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) recommends you wear a face mask. Coronavirus is spread when an infected person is in close contact with another person.  Wearing a face mask reduces the risk by providing a physical barrier.  Keeping 1.5 metres distance between others and washing your hands is still the best way to stay safe.

You can use a single-use face mask (surgical masks) or a reusable mask (cloth mask).  Both can be bought from shops such as chemists or hardware stores, or you can make your own reusable mask.  Find more information at the DHHS website.

You will not be fined if you don’t wear a mask.  It is a recommendation only.

Vietnamese Community Connector Message – 17 July 2020

 

LỜI NHẮN NHỦ CỦA HỘI ĐỒNG THÀNH PHỐ MORELAND

Victoria đang có tỷ lệ nhiễm coronavirus cao. Cách tốt nhất để giữ an toàn là ở nhà, cách xa người khác 1,5 mét, rửa tay thường xuyên và đi xét nghiệm nếu bị các triệu chứng bệnh.

Nếu ở bên ngoài nhà của mình và không thể duy trì khoảng cách 1,5 mét so với những người khác (ví dụ: trên phương tiện chuyên chở công cộng hoặc mua sắm tạp hóa), Bộ Y tế và Dịch vụ Nhân sinh Victoria Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) khuyên quý vị nên đeo khẩu trang. Coronavirus lây lan khi người bệnh tiếp xúc gần gũi với người khác. Đeo khẩu trang sẽ làm giảm nguy cơ này bằng cách tạo ra rào cản vật lý. Duy trì khoảng cách 1,5 mét giữa người này và người kia và rửa tay vẫn là cách tốt nhất để giữ an toàn.

Quý vị có thể đeo khẩu trang sử dụng một lần (khẩu trang phẫu thuật) hoặc khẩu trang tái sử dụng (khẩu trang vải). Quý vị có thể mua cả hai loại này tại tiệm như nhà thuốc tây hoặc tiệm ngũ kim (hardware) hoặc quý vị có thể tự làm khẩu trang tái sử dụng. Hãy tìm thêm thông tin tại trang mạng của DHHS.

Quý vị sẽ không bị phạt nếu không đeo khẩu trang. Đây chỉ là lời đề nghị mà thôi.

Message from Moreland City Council

From Thursday 9 July 2020, Melbourne is returning to Stay at Home restrictions.  This includes all of Moreland.

To stop the spread of coronavirus, you must stay at home.  Wash your hands.  Maintain 1.5 metres social distancing.  Get tested.

There are only 4 reasons why you can leave your home:

  1. Work or school
  2. Receive care or look after someone else
  3. Daily exercise
  4. Buy food or other essential items.

If you are outside your home for any other reason, Police may give you a fine.

It is more important than ever to get tested if you have coronavirus symptoms.  These include fever, cough, sore throat, difficulty breathing, runny nose, or loss of smell or taste.

We know this is a difficult time.  Support is available for you and your families.  Moreland Council’s website lists services that may be able to help you.  Such as food relief services, accommodation, legal advice and managing bills.

covid-19


Coronavirus (COVID-19) is not over yet.  We need to keep looking after ourselves and our community to stop the virus spreading. 

Due to increased cases in Victoria, some restrictions have changed.  From 22 June 2020: 

 

  • ·         You cannot have more than five visitors in your home
  • ·         You cannot gather outdoors with more than 10 people
  • ·         Schools, libraries, places of worship and businesses remain open
  • ·         Stay close to home and do not travel if possible

 

If you live in Brunswick West and Fawkner, you should get tested even if you do NOT have any symptoms. This is because these suburbs have been identified as higher risk. Testing is free and you should stay home until you get your results.

 

Wash your hands.  Maintain 1.5 metres social distancing.  Get tested.

The Unified Vietnamese Buddhist Congregation of Australia–New Zealand has received the news that the Former Prime Minister of Australia, The Honourable Edward Gough Whitlam passed away in Sydney on October 21st, 2014, aged 98 years. We Vietnamese Buddhists began arriving in Australia as refugees from communism in the mid-1970s during Mr. Whitlam’s term as Prime Minister. From our reading we know that the Late Former Prime Minister has become a legend, and that for his near century of life all Australians are grateful to him and admire, respect and honour him. He has through his determination and strength of spirit and to the best of his ability brought progress to Australia making her an equal among free, democratic and powerful nations of the world. Through audacious and welcome reforms to education, justice, health, etc… he made Australia and its people feel reassured and more confident in the future.

Dan Stevenson is neither a Buddhist nor a follower of any organized religion. The 11th Avenue resident in Oakland's Eastlake neighborhood was simply feeling hopeful in 2009 when he went to an Ace hardware store, purchased a 2-foot-high stone Buddha and installed it on a median strip in a residential area at 11th Avenue and 19th Street. He hoped that just maybe his small gesture would bring tranquillity to a neighborhood marred by crime: dumping, graffiti, drug dealing, prostitution, robberies, aggravated assault and burglaries.

On December1 1955, in Montgomery Alabama, an African-American woman refused to obey a bus driver’s order to give up her seat on the bus to a white passenger. That simple act of defiance for the cause of social justice became one of the most important symbols of the modern Civil Rights Movements in the USA. That woman was Rosa Parks. The United States Congress called her “the first lady of civil rights” and “the mother of the freedom movement”. December 1 is commemorated in the US states of California and Ohio as “Rosa Parks Day”
