Announcement of the BCAA Action Committee

The BCAA Action Committee is one of the leading groups under BCAA. Its goal is to lead the Chinese community in Bridgewater and neighboring towns to fight COVID-19. Members of the committee raise awareness about the severity of COVID-19 and promote social distancing.
The committee consists of seven members: Henry Wang, Jean Lee (JJ), Chris Zhang, TianJing, Chad Wang, TianJiao Wang, and Carol Shi. 

Specific tasks of the committee include:

  1. Spread the following information:
    • the virus is highly contagious, and over 20% of cases are critical
    • critical condition patients may be permanently affected, even after recovery
    • there is currently no cure
    • once an outbreak occurs, hospitals will be overwhelmed
    • data from China and Japan proves that immune patients can be carriers, and they can still transmit the virus
    • quarantine and social distancing is the most effective preventive method
    • avoid crowded places and stay 6 feet away from others
    • people that violate these guidelines, often teenagers, cause the quarantine and isolation to be ineffective, putting themselves and others at risk
  2. Work with the township and local organizations. The committee will promote social distancing and other scientifically-proven preventive methods through social media and both American and Chinese newspapers.
  3. Learn about the neighbors who are struggling in these difficult times. The committee will help these people find a solution and encourage members of the community to help one another.
  4. Organize donations to respond to emergencies and other urgent matters, such as the shortage of masks and protective gear for medical professionals.

Let’s win the fight against COVID-19 together.
