NY, NJ and CT require travelers from countries with high corona virus levels to quarantine for two weeks



Gov. Cuomo: We've been through hell. We'll come out stronger.

New York Governor Andrew Cuomo, New Jersey Governor Phil Murphy and Connecticut Governor Ned Lamont said travel advisory applies to anyone who comes from a state with a transmission rate above 10 per 100,000 people with an average seven-day turnover or 10 percent of the total population tested positive on a seven-day rolling average.

“We have to make sure the virus doesn’t come on the plane,” Cuomo said.

“We are working very hard to reduce the rate of transmission of the virus, and we don’t want to see it rise,” he added.

On Wednesday, advisors apply to Alabama, Arkansas, Arizona, Florida, North Carolina, South Carolina, Washington, Utah, and Texas. It starts tonight at midnight.

Cuomo said each of New York, New Jersey and Connecticut would be responsible for quarantine enforcement itself.

In New York, Cuomo said, those who violate quarantine may be subject to mandatory court and quarantine orders, and a fine is $ 2,000 for the first offense, $ 5,000 for the second offense, and $ 10,000 if you cause harm.

Cases under control in a tri-state area

The announcement is 180 degrees flip from just a few months ago, when the tri-state area, and New York City in particular, were the center of the pandemic.

In late March, President Donald Trump considered putting three states under quarantine, Rhode Island police stopped vehicles with New York license plates, and Florida directs all travelers from the tri-state area to isolate or quarantine for two weeks.
Strict locking rules for months, extensive testing and imperfect contact tracking efforts have brought cases under control in tri-state and regional areas. New cases decreased last week compared to the previous week in New York, New Jersey and Connecticut.
The Texas governor urged people to stay home when states reported a surge in the new Covid-19 case
But now, countries in the South and West see what Dr. Anthony Fauci, a member of the White House coronavirus task force, called “disturbing waves” in cases. On Wednesday, 26 countries reported an increase in cases in the past week compared to the previous week, and the increase was very striking in densely populated countries such as California, Texas, Florida, and Arizona.

Governor Murphy of New Jersey said the tri-state region had “broken the back of the virus” with public health efforts and praised travel advisors.

“That’s the right thing to do, it’s a natural thing to do, it’s a responsible thing to do,” Murphy said.

Governor Lamont of Connecticut said they “reluctantly” decided to institute a travel advisory, adding, “the Northeast region takes this seriously.”

“We are not an island and when we look at other parts of the country, you know we have seen, not only nails, but real communities are spreading,” he said.

Lack of national infrastructure

Travel restrictions between states are just another consequence of the inability of the federal government to create a strong national public health infrastructure. The lack of effective national rules and supply chains has largely left individual states and has the effect of pitting one another.

Even now, 19 states have no requirements for residents to use a faceplate – the simplest and cheapest layer of defense against viruses without vaccines and no widely effective treatment.

Coronavirus Pandemic: Updates from around the world

Indeed, Governor Cuomo has openly ridiculed other countries which he said acted politically rather than scientifically.

“New York moved from one of the highest infection rates in the country to one of the lowest because we made decisions based on science – not politics,” he said Tuesday. “We see in other countries what happens when you have just reopened without regard to metrics or data. This is bad for public health and for the economy, and countries that are reopening in a hurry now look backfired.”

As part of a gradual reopening, New York requires the region to meet certain metrics around testing, contact tracking, and hospital admissions and available beds. New York City, the last area to be reopened, moved to the second phase of reopening on Monday after seeing continuous improvement in each metric.

Richard Besser, former acting director of the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, said no country had effectively reopened its economy safely.

“We must look for ways to make that transition in a successful way, or every country that reopens, even those who have done an excellent job in overcoming this, will see a dramatic increase and we will end back where we are. , “said Besser.

September, Holiday Month for the Deaf – Portuguese (Brazil)



Mutirão Opens To Negotiation Of Individuals' Overdue Debts - Português (Brazil)

September is a very important and visible month for deaf people, with three dates that raise awareness and celebrate achievements that are part of the entire community’s trajectory and struggle. These are: – International Sign Language Day, September 23; – Day of the Deaf, 26 September; and Libra National Interpreter and Translator Day on September 30th. With a focus on the deaf community, the Department of Education is promoting several initiatives in this area.

The first is aimed at changing the scenario of educational and language policy based only on the inclusive perspective of including a deaf student in the school environment without guaranteeing procedures that enhance accessibility in his education. The National Guidelines for Bilingual Education for the Deaf integrate all stages of basic education and are based on the promotion of bilingual curricula and pedagogical practices for the deaf: Brazilian Sign Language (Libras) and written Portuguese.

Through the Department of Special Education, the MEC coordinates with interested municipalities the construction, renovation or expansion of bilingual schools for the deaf. To date, 11 locations in Brazil have shown interest in the project. To complement this phase, the Libras National Textbook Program (PNLD) provides accessible formats to deaf students and public school teachers of basic education in the country.

In the academic world, in partnership with universities, advanced training courses are offered for teachers, managers and professionals who want to work with bilingual education for the deaf. Thanks to the projects of various institutions, there are currently 3,520 vacancies for teaching the deaf.

Another important date: The National Institute for Education for the Deaf (Ines) turns 165 on the same Libra and the Deaf Day, September 26th. Within the structure of the Ministry of Education, the Institute stands out as a national reference in the field of deafness, necessary to support the formulation of public policies, and then for their implementation in the field. The Institute works to promote education for deaf children, youth and adults.

Sarah’s complaint comes after the league filed a complaint against a Manchester United player for aggression against Jake in the Manchester team’s match against Everton on April 9 last season in the Premier League. After an unsuccessful result, the Portuguese dropped a fan’s mobile phone on the way to the locker room.

According to Sarah, she and her son once again became victims of offenses in social networks after the announcement of the complaint against the attacker.

“People are following me, saying that I am rebelling again, but I didn’t know anything about it. The case should have been heard six months ago. My son talks every day about what happened to him. He still hasn’t returned his phone,” he said.

“You are the future,” President Marcelo Rebelo de Souza told a three-year-old girl dressed in traditional Portuguese clothing who came out to greet him on the podium where he spoke at Artesia Portuguese Salon. The city, located on the outskirts of Los Angeles, has not hosted the President of the Portuguese Republic since 1989. This weekend, he did it with pomp and the setting of an ornate Portuguese-American community bursting with pride.

“We have never lost the honor and responsibility of being representatives of this beautiful flag,” said Jimmy Enes, a member of Artesia DES, a Portuguese descendant, in a welcoming speech delivered in perfect Portuguese. “When we are asked who we are, we always answer”i am portuguese“and not”Portuguese-American“or ‘Portuguese American’,” he said. “That’s why we’re trying step by step to protect our heritage on the outskirts of Los Angeles, one of the greatest cities in the world.”
