OTCA News May 2021 / 渥太華太極拳學會簡報（五月號）
Post date: May 2, 2021 4:52:01 PM
Ontario’s Stay-at-Home order is in place until May 19th
Stay at home except for essential travel and follow the restrictions and public health measures
Vaccine is underway, all adults over 18 will be eligible for COVID-18 vaccine by end of May
Dear students, members, and instructors,
Your OTCA Executive have met virtually during this time and have made the following decisions:
· The June 12th social event to be held at Andrew Haydon Park has been CANCELLED for this year
· OTCA has not planned any organized outdoor summer practice yet due to current circumstance
· The Annual General Meeting will be postponed to September
· The ZOOM sessions will be posted to the OTCA Facebook page and website
· Communications continue with OCDSB about the coming school year
With the spike in rising numbers in the third wave, it is prudent to stay at home and do exercises. COVID vaccine is underway, for the latest update (and it is constantly changing), please see https://www.ottawapublichealth.ca/en/public-health-topics/covid-19-vaccine.aspx.
ZOOM sessions will continue during this time. Thanks to all our teachers’ dedication and enthusiasm.
I would like to point out the main purpose and difference between ZOOM Sessions vs. streaming (live or sharing YouTube videos) is INTERACTION! All our teachers have dedicated their precious time to not only show us the exercise but also help us to correct/enhance our techniques. Therefore, it is highly recommended to turn on your video camera during the Zoom sessions. Please do not worry that you are not a previous student or a member of OTCA. All our teachers welcome everyone in the Zoom sessions during the pandemic to stay safe and healthy.

新冠已到達第三波，令我們不能不留守家中。渥太華亦陸續推出新冠疫苗，資訊日新月異，請瀏覽此網站 https://www.ottawapublichealth.ca/en/public-health-topics/covid-19-vaccine.aspx 提供最新資訊。
大家有冇想過，ZOOM練習同跟網上睇片練習的最大分別呢？對！就是「互動」！我們所有的老師都投入了寶貴的時間，不僅向我們展示了練習，而且還幫助我們糾正/增強我們的技術。 因此，我強烈建議大家在ZOOM太極練習期間打開攝像機。 請不要擔心您不是以前的學生或OTCA的成員。 在新冠期間，我們所有的老師都歡迎所有人參加ZOOM會議，以保持安全和健康。
