Who can see your viewing activity?
If the meetings were "in person", we'd be unable to attend, even if the border were open!
Has the presentation begun? I am unable to hear it.
Yes it has started.
it has Gillian, is your speaker on? do you have multiple windows open? you may have to log out and in again
Yes! Click the "up arrow" next to the microphone icon in the lower left of the screen, and open your "Audio Settings" to check it out.
good marketing tool haha
Thank goodness this material was saved and it is in NB!

Such a national treasure, thank god it was saved!
Did she interview many people from the Atlantic Provinces?
What are sneezers? masks?
thanks for the questions, I will pass them onto Dr. Jenkins
Is Dr. Jenkins working on a book? Would be a really interesting comparison in light of COVID and 100+ years later.
When it was said that they could not bury the bodies because it was winter, so they piled the dead in a house, did they burn the house then? Or did he mean the bodies were kept in the house until the ground thawed and the dead could be buried?
What kind of jelly?
I think it was calf foot jelly?
What kind of equipment would the physicians and nurses used to protect themselves at that time? was there any medecine that could be given and had they ever dealt with anything like this again?
Thank you for sharing all your wonderful work
how rare is this collection? Amazing voices from the past!
How would people know if a house had an influenza case or was in quarantine, was there a mark or paper on the house? On a side note, my father remembers his father leaving food and mail in a box at the end of the driveway for hisneighbors.
what happened if you didn't follow the emergency order?
So important that this history is shared so that the public can be reminded that COVID is not the first time communities have been put in lock downs to protect against illness and death. Thank you so much for your excellent presentation.
Yay! Looking forward to reading the book.
so the time frame was about a year? It passed very quickly... how did they know when it was "safe" and how long did it take to "get like back to normal"?
Thanks so much... Great presentation.
