  1. NOTE / NOTA: The magazine was prepared, for the most part, prior to recent situations. We decided to continue with the articles written, as there is so much to learn about the rich customs of our area. We are not suggesting people should take part in the upcoming festivities and occasions.. NOTA: Preparamos la revista en su mayor parte an- tes de la reciente situación con el coronavirus. Decidimos dejar los artículos sobre la semana santa, porque consideramos que serán de su agrado. Tome en cuenta que muchas de las actividades han sido canceladas y le sugerimos quedarse en casa https://issuu.com/lakechapalasociety/docs/conecciones_magazine_abril_2020 Note that there is no print copy for April 2020.
  2. Message from the Governor of the state of Jalisco. Enrique Alfaro. #ConferenciaDePrensa: #Coronavirus # COVID19 | March 23, 202 F ifteen days ago, Jalisco made the decision to step forward and act responsibly in the face of the coronavirus pandemic. On March 12, we launched the Jalisco COVID-19 plan with a series of difficult but necessary measures. From the beginning, in this government, we decided to take a different route from the one that the government of the republic and other states of the country were taking. None of this is new; all we did was attend to the recommendations of the World Health Organization (WHO), of experts and scientists from Jalisco, Mexico, and the world. We learned from experiences beyond our borders, from the mistakes and successes of other countries to face this situation in the best way. We knew how to give the right value to anticipation as a preventive measure, and I feel calm and proud for having taken this path. During the last five days, following the recommendations of the University of Guadalajara, in an act of enormous civic value, millions of Jalisco residents heeded the government's call to stay home and avoid massive contagion at a crucial moment. The exercise of resistance that we have lived must make us feel deeply proud. Without the need to impose a mandatory quarantine, in Jalisco we made stewardship the strongest weapon to face the crisis. This has been the beginning, just the beginning, of an endurance race, not speed. The beginning of a path that will lead us to save lives and preserve the health of Jalisco. To give you an idea, during these days of voluntary isolation, the demand for trips on public transport had a reduction of up to 50%, in other words, equivalent to a million trips a day that were not made. Commercial and service activity had a reduction of between 70 and 80 percent; and industrial activity, a 30% reduction. Without a doubt, these are data that reflect the enormous economic sacrifice that these measures have represented for all, but the effort has been worthwhile. The first results of our strategy are encouraging and should serve as encouragement for us not to slow down. Let me share the following information. Five days ago, Jalisco had practically the same cases as Mexico City. Today, the results show that infections in the country's capital grew almost twice as fast as those in our state, or in other words, in Jalisco we managed to half the rate of spread of the virus compared to that of the virus in Mexico City. Thanks to all the measures that we have taken in Jalisco and the responsibility of the people of Jalisco, today, we do not have to declare a mandatory quarantine. This is good news to start with, but it doesn't mean we can not let our guard down. On the contrary, it is time to start the next stage of the strategy and once again Jalisco needs all of us. The scientific information we have tells us that the social isolation measures we have taken in these five days have been successful, but they have to be sustained with some adjustments, at least until Sunday. If we were to slow down right now, we would spoil everything that we have advanced. Saying that these measures have to be sustained until Sunday does not mean that on Monday everything will return to normal. It means that on Monday, we are going to make an assessment that allows us to adjust the strategy, based on new information generated by the application of massive tests to Jaliscienses. I insist the endurance race has only just begun. Having clarified that the social isolation measures are sustained, then what are the adjustments in these measures, compared to those of the last days? First. Today the priority is for those who are over 60 years old to stay at home, pregnant women, people with chronic degenerative diseases such as diabetes or hypertension, and people with symptoms of a respiratory disease. That is the population whose stay at home is essential. Second. Economic activities, which, by their nature, cannot be stopped and are necessary for Jalisco to function. They have to be carried out under strict health and hygiene measures for workers, which will be supervised by the Ministry of Labor. We maintain the call for those who can do work from home to do so, but those companies that require face-to-face work must guarantee the existence of a model of shifts that privileges remote work, which guarantees support for absenteeism. the sectors of the population that we already define as the most vulnerable, as well as acting at all times with solidarity and permanent communication with their workers. Our economy cannot be stopped, but health is first. Third. Without relaxing the isolation measures, and understanding that the supply of food and basic services cannot be stopped, we have to strengthen the consumption of our micro and small commercial units in a new exercise of solidarity. This is a call for all of us to privilege local consumption as a measure of containment to the difficult economic situation we face. If you go to the tianguis or the market, go alone, without your family, taking the appropriate hygiene measures. If you want to eat tacos, don't go to the stand with your family; make an order to go or order them through some platform. If you want to eat in a restaurant, make sure that they have the social distance and health measures that we have established as mandatory, and if they do not, demand them to accomplish them. Fourth. After detecting the first case in a municipality outside the Guadalajara metropolitan area, imported from the USA, we call on the Jalisco community abroad to help us care for their families. Visiting Jalisco at this time, only puts those you love most at risk. Given the lack of response from the authorities for the suspension of flights from places that have virus outbreaks, we appeal to the solidarity of our countrymen abroad, particularly in the United States. You know that we love and miss you here, but at this time, it is essential that no patronal or civic holiday be a reason to put your families at risk. Please take good care of yourselves. Here we will be aware of you and your people. We will see each other again soon. With these adjustments, Jalisco maintains the call for social isolation that until today has allowed us to face this crisis in the best way. Additionally, this evening, the operating rules of a government financial support program for micro and small businesses will be published, as well as for the population in self-employment or informal commerce. Starting Thursday, you will begin the online process to access these supports. Pay attention. We will give more information in the following hours. Tomorrow, as well, we will start the massive virus testing program as a strategy for the prevention and early detection of the coronavirus. In Jalisco, we are not going to hide the truth, on the contrary, we will start from a real diagnosis to adjust the strategy and avoid deaths. It does not matter, if from this exercise, Jalisco appears in the statistics, in first place of detected cases. If this is so, it will be because here we are looking for our patients, finding them quickly, caring for them, isolating them and protecting the community. I am convinced that this is the correct way for each authority to assume his/her responsibility and act accordingly. Everything is changing, and so we have to understand it. There is no time for half measures. The decisions and actions that we take together these days will define in many ways the shape that we will have in the coming years. At the end of the day, the most important measure of all is and will continue to be in the will of the people. As governor, but above all, as a jalisciense, thank you to all for the commitment we have shown. Let us continue to do our part. #ConferenciaDePrensa: #Coronavirus # COVID19 | March 23, 2020

  4. The Lake Chapala Society Board of Directors came together to address next steps as it relates to CORONAVIRUS. As a result, the board has made the following decisions, effective today: The Board of Directors followed the State of Jalisco’s "5 Dias en Casa” initiative. This initial 5 - day period has been extended at least through this Sunday. Please see the translation of today’s Governors message attach. The Board has agreed to keep our campus and the Wilkes Center closed for the time being and will continue to have ongoing conversations to determine when we will reopen. We believe this is in the best interest of the largest number of people to help control the coronavirus within the foreign and Mexican communities. The Lake Chapala Society Annual General Meeting (AGM) that was scheduled to take place on Thursday, March 19, was postponed to a later date. Plans are being considered that could enable AGM business to be conducted online or by other means in lieu of holding an in-person meeting. . We have temporarily suspended all programs, activities, events and services, including our libraries until the level of contact with others is safer. This includes those offered at the Wilkes Center. The best guidelines to contain the coronavirus is to: continue to be to Stay at Home, wash your hands frequently, limit trips out of the house as much as possible, and when you do have to interact with other people, please respect Social Distancing guidelines of two meters (six feet). Our staff who are able to work from home are maintaining some of our existing initiatives. We have several new initiatives in the works at this time. LCS Reaching Out Program - we have recruited over 80 volunteers who are mobilized and ready to reach out to members, especially those who live alone, have no family in the area and want to be contacted on a daily basis. This service has now been extended to the community at large. For more information, Register Here Online learning opportunities. One of our IT volunteers has held Tech training sessions through the use of Zoom, an application that allows for group participation and interactions online. Our Education team is also working on the use of Zoom to hold Conversational Spanish and English sessions. We are sending out frequent Bulletins with updates on LCS activities as well as general information on the coronavirus. We have waived all late fees for books and DVDs. So, if you have books or DVDs in your possession do not worry about getting them turned in at this time. When we reopen the campus, you can then return the books. We are aware that many rumors are being spread. We encourage everyone to use caution in distributing information that has not been verified from reliable, official sources. Below are links to some sources we monitor that we have found helpful. We also encourage all members of the foreign community to monitor official websites from your home country. These actions are designed to reduce the threat of spreading this disease and spreading false information, while keeping the Lake Chapala Society available to the community to help assist those that may be in need. We want to assure you that the legacy of ‘people helping people’ is not lost during these critical times. We are your community and we are here for you! And while many of our members are returning to their native countries, many more are here all-year round, along with so many in the Mexican community that rely on LCS as a connection with the foreign community. We need your continued support through both your membership and generous donations. Keeping all this in mind, you will be able to stay connected by renewing your membership online and you will receive a credit towards future classes for trips and events that have been postponed. Or you can use the same tickets when these programs are rescheduled, so please hold on to your receipts or tickets. Any donations to assist us with continuing our mission at Lake Chapala Society and allowing our staff to maintain the grounds would be greatly appreciated. We are your community and we are here for you!

  6. There is so much late breaking news that we feel it is important to get this update out to outline a few of the things we are working on. 1. Our deepest appreciation goes out to the many people who responded to our last email appeal and went online to make a donation. These funds will help us continue to pay our workers who will be able to support their families. They all offer their deepest appreciation. 2. Late last evening we received a communication from the Governor of the State of Jalisco – with a new initiative entitled “5 Dias en Casa” – 5 days at home. The researchers at the University of Guadalajara have data that suggests if everyone stayed at home for these 5 days – we could make a significant difference in the spread of this virus in our area. Since our members fall into the high-risk category, we feel it only responsible that we support the State of Jalisco’s recommendation. For that reason, the Lake Chapala Society campus will be closed for these 5 days. The governor will be meeting next week to determine whether these recommendations will be lifted or extended. Depending on the conditions occurring at that time we will decide whether it would be appropriate to reopen our grounds in a limited capacity for the benefit of the many LCS constituents who need some of the things that the campus can provide. 3. We are developing some new LCS initiatives that groups of volunteers and staff are working on. One is the LCS Reach Out program. More will be coming on this shortly. 4. We are also working on some online and call in groups with learning opportunities. It will take a little more time to get this program in place and we will forward information once available. 5. We have had many questions about the travel restrictions between Mexico and the US. Today the US government sent out an email to people on file in their system. (Note we have no involvement in who the email goes to). Below is a copy of the email. 6. Our goal is to send a weekly or on a as needed basis LCS Bulletin – watch your email inbox for these important Bulletins with summaries of some of the news coming out and links for additional information. 7. The April Issue of our monthly Conecciones magazine – We hope to do an email version of this magazine midweek. The team is actively working on it now; do to many businesses closing down for the time being, we are limiting print copies at this time. With all our hearts we thank you all for being such valued members of the LCS Community. Please share this email with family and friends. Carole Wolff President Lake Chapala Society

Description: Cultural shock is a normal part of life when we move to another country whose habits are different, we have to observe and learn the local rules of urbanity, what body language issues are appropriate and which are not. Why the behavior of the inhabitants of the new place is different. What do local people expect from me as a new inhabitant of the area? What phrases should I use and at what times? What should I understand about the time structure of the local people so different from mine? Why are the procedures with the authorities so complicated? And a long etc. Our intention is to help you understand these basic and necessary questions for the real and adequate coexistence with my new neighbors. Another way to know Mexico.
  10. U.S. NOTARIZATIONS Charles D. Wilder, Esq., who is an LCS member and a Board Certified Florida attorney, is also what is known as a Civil-law Notary. This allows him to notarize documents that are valid for recording, filing or other notarization purposes back in the U.S. He will be here an available on the LCS campus from 10:00 am to 12:00 pm on Tuesday, March 17, 2020 and 12:00 pm to 2:00 pm Thursday, March 19, 2020 to assist members with notarizing documents for the nominal fees of $35 for the first document and $25 for each additional document. Chuck will accept US currency or equivalent cash in pesos. [Please note a requirement of the Civil-law Notary commission under Florida law is that he keep a copy of each document he notarizes in his protocol. You will be required to make a copy in the LCS office of each document to provide him for his protocol at your expense.]
  11. In a couple of weeks, Mexico will undertake the once every 10 year, Census. For Expats, this is very important for our community as it gives information to the government about the services our community needs. It adds to the strengh of our relationship with the government entities in allowing us to have a voice at the table.
