JP-1500.1700-150 COVID-19 Control Programs that attempt to control the occurrence and spread of the virus first identified in Wuhan, Hubei Province, China in 2019 that causes the respiratory illness COVID-19 and which probably originally emerged from an animal source but now seems to be spreading from person-to-person. Coronaviruses are a large family of viruses, some causing illness in people and others that circulate among animals, including camels, cats and bats. Analysis of the genetic tree of this virus is ongoing to learn the specific source of the virus. SARS, another coronavirus that emerged to infect people, came from civet cats, while MERS (the Middle East Respiratory Syndrome), another coronavirus that emerged to infect people, came from camels. Symptoms of the current infection include mild to severe respiratory illness with fever, cough and difficulty breathing. Coronaviruses are generally thought to be spread most often by respiratory droplets. There is no evidence of transmission of the virus associated with imported goods.

TC-1470 Community Hubs Neighbourhood facilities that are designed to be welcoming and inclusive gathering places as well as centralized access points for a wide range of health, social, cultural and recreational organizations and programs, particularly in high needs or isolated communities. Each is unique according the priorities of its community, which is often involved in their design and development. Hub partners may include larger service organizations like the Red Cross that have satellite programs at the site as well as local agencies and community economic development projects, all of whom benefit from shared resources and administrative costs. NOTE: The reference to United Way leadership has been removed from the definition. NOTE: Canadian only. CHANGE 02/11/20
RP-8000.6400 Pet Assisted Therapy Programs that help veterans with PTSD, inmates serving a sentence in prison, emotionally disturbed individuals or people who are isolated improve their personal and social functioning by giving them an opportunity to take responsibility for and/or relate to a domestic animal. In some cases, the animals may be selected due to comparable histories of trauma. Also included are programs that bring dogs or other small pets to visit people residing in a nursing facility or another institutional setting who are ill or elderly or have disabilities; and those that employ Reading Education Assistance Dogs (R.E.A.D.) who volunteer with their owner/handler as a team, going to schools, libraries and many other settings as reading companions for children. A similar program offers children the opportunity to learn to read by reading to one of its therapy horses. = Reading Therapy Horses CHANGE 02/11/20

FT-1800.2500 Genetic Discrimination Assistance Programs that provide assistance for people who have been denied health insurance coverage or have been treated differently than their coworkers by their employer as a result of genetic testing revealing a gene mutation that increases the risk that the individual has an inherited disorder. Genetic information includes information about an individual's genetic tests, information about the genetic test of a family member, family medical history, requests for and receipt of genetic services by an individual or a family member, and genetic information about a fetus carried by an individual or family member or of an embryo legally held by an individual or family member using assisted reproductive technology. The development of genetic tests promised to give patients new power to create personalized ways of detecting, treating and preventing disease. But without protection from discrimination, some patients have been reluctant to undergo genetic testing or participate in genetic research.

DF-8000.3030 Genetic Discrimination Protection Laws Enactment/Enforcement U.S. DEFINITION: Programs that establish and enforce federal or state legislation which prohibits discrimination based on genetic testing revealing a gene mutation that increases the risk that an individual has an inherited disorder. Most notable is the federal Genetic Information Nondiscrimination Act (GINA) which has two parts: Title I, which makes it illegal for health insurance providers to use or require genetic information to make decisions about a person's health insurance eligibility or coverage; and Title II, which prohibits discrimination in employment based on genetic information and, with certain exceptions, prohibits an employer from requesting, requiring or purchasing genetic information. The law also prohibits use of genetic information in employment decisions (including hiring, firing, advancement, compensation, job assignments and other terms, conditions and privileges of employment) by employers with 15 or more employees (including state and local governments). It also applies to employment agencies, labor organizations, joint labor-management and apprentice training programs, and the federal government. However GINA and other similar laws do not protect people from genetic discrimination in every circumstance. For example, GINA does not protect against genetic discrimination related to forms of insurance other than health insurance, including life, disability or long-term care insurance. CANADIAN DEFINITION: Programs that establish and enforce federal or provincial/territorial legislation, particularly the federal Genetic Non-Discrimination Act (GNDA) along with amendments to the Canadian Labour Code and the Canadian Human Rights Act, which prohibits discrimination based on genetic testing revealing that a person is predisposed to a medical condition that may manifest later in life. The legislation prohibits employers and companies, including insurance providers, from requiring results of genetic testing when providing services or goods, entering contractual agreements, or offering specific terms or conditions in a contract. In addition, the Act forbids denying people services when they refuse to undergo genetic tests and prohibits the collection, use and disclosure of an individual's genetic test results without their written consent.
