NOW’S NOT THE TIME TO PANIC

Caution needed with Omicron variant under the microscope

It has been about two weeks since most of us found out about the new Omicron variant and to say that the world has been on edge would be an understatement. There has been travel bans put in place around the world and plenty of fears that lockdowns would return in time for Christmas.

Depending upon where you live, that might happen. Several European countries, including Austria and Slovakia, started lockdowns last week before news of the variant broke. Germany is talking about a lockdown of the unvaccinated and Israel and Japan have shut their borders to the outside world.

Against that backdrop, a call for calm from Premier Doug Ford.

Last week Ford addressed the new variant for the first time in public.

He said “The discovery of the variant here in Ontario is cause for concern, but it’s not cause for panic.”  

That is refreshing to hear him say that as so many people were worried that we were just days away from another lockdown.

He also praised the Federal government for bringing in border measures quickly to buy Canada some much needed time.

“Every day, we learn more about the Omicron virus, about how quickly it can spread and how severe it may be. We’re learning about how effective our vaccines are every day we hold off more cases entering our country, the more time we have to learn and prepare,” Ford said.

I agree with Ford that the Federal government was right to act early in imposing travel bans from areas with a known concentration of cases. They have also instituted testing requirements and quarantine for certain incoming travelers. It’s not a sole solution, but it will buy us some time to learn more about this variant.

Within two to three weeks, we should know if it is more transmissible, if it is more virulent or if it produces milder symptoms than the Delta, especially among those who are vaccinated.  This is why travel restrictions matter.

These are not racist travel restrictions or bans, as some have claimed.

No one claimed the ban on flights from the U.K. last year was racist, but it would have helped more it had come earlier. Same with travel bans from China and other hot spots in the first wave. It’s about buying time to learn and prepare.

We don’t need to panic as Ford rightly said, and we don’t need to head back into lockdown mode.

What we can do is ensure testing upon arrival, proper screening for all, quarantine for those who need it and any other measures that will limit the introduction or spread of a new variant until we know more.

Canada as a whole and Ontario in particular, has a far higher level of vaccine protection than countries we are watching deal with Omicron, be that South Africa, Britain or the Netherlands. We also have lower case counts as well, other than South Africa, which has seen low rates of infection before this variant emerged, but is now expecting a spike in numbers.

Our most vulnerable are protected. Of Ontario’s 10,000 COVID deaths, 59% were people over the age of 80 and that age group has a fully vaccinated rate of 96.3% and the are now being offered booster shots. The second most vulnerable group, 70 to 79 year old, has a double vax rate of 95.8%.

We need to be cautious, especially for the vulnerable, but we do not need to panic and head down the dangerous road of lockdowns. Protect the vulnerable, keep hospitals open, exercise personal caution depending upon your situation.

Unless things change for the worse, which we need to hope they do not, that is all we need to do!

MBE is highly active in creating social awareness through social media with regards to social distancing measures and how necessary they have been in the current pandemic. Our goal is to act as a catalyst in helping the Government through tough times and enable them to bounce back from problematic scenarios.

Although various restrictions have been loosened for some businesses, it is next to impossible to get back the business they have lost as we endure our 22nd month of the pandemic.

While the league says the vaccination policy doesn’t apply to spectators, some facilities have already brought in their own spectator mandates as well as rules allowing only one spectator per family inside the arena.

Businesses and organizations all across  the province are eager to get back to normal and do whatever it takes to avoid another shut down and limit the disruptions that come with testing and isolation policies.

That said, leagues are more than just cold hearted bureaucracies churning out edicts. They’re community hubs for civil society. Should their default position be to cave to the lowest common denominator demands of the most skittish among us? Or should they be leaders in standing up for our youth and advocating for more balanced policies?

If the GTHL scrapped the vaccine rule, there might be a few busybody parents who would send indignant emails to the league, but they’d soon quit their whining and just enjoy the game.

When kids soccer leagues got underway, the written rules sent out to parents were laughably strict. They said only one family member can attend as a spectator, players should use hand sanitizer during breaks, and no high fives were allowed.

Nobody followed those rules and nobody enforced them. Families came out to cheer on their kids, who had a great season enjoying doing something the same way they did pre COVID.

Granted there’s a difference between an outdoor activity in the summer and an indoor activity in the fall and winter but let’s hope something similar happens when it comes to striking a balance with the more over the top hockey rules.

Take as an example this one, from the GTHL’s formal guidelines: Cheering or yelling by spectators is strongly discouraged.”

No cheering in hockey?

Good luck with that.

Some rules are made to be broken.
