IMPORTANT – PRESS RELEASE
SUSPENSION OF SUPPORT GROUPS
The Coronavirus (COVID-19) forces all organizations to modify their activities. The Sjögren’s Syndrome Association is no exception, unfortunately.
In a spirit of shared responsibility aimed primarily at the health of our members, the board of directors of the SSA has decided to suspend, until further notice, the activities of self-help groups. We will contact you as soon as we resume support meetings.
The priority of the Government of Quebec is to take all of the actions necessary to limit the spread of the coronavirus (COVID-19) among the Quebec population. Everyone also has a role to play in reducing the risk of viruses spreading.
In order to inform the public, the Ministère de la Santé et des Services sociaux (MSSS) has created the following web page: https://www.quebec.ca/sante/problemes-de-sante/az/coronavirus-2019/# c46341 which deals with all the details about this virus. The events or recommendations relating to this disease are updated daily.
If you are concerned about COVID ‑ 19, you can call toll-free 1 877 644-4545.
Thank you for your understanding and we look forward to seeing you again,
Lise St-André and Danielle-Flore Soucy, heads of self-help groups

About Our Logo
This logo was chosen in 1994 by the Sjögren’s Syndrome group soon after it was formed in Montreal Quebec Canada. It was designed by one of our members.
Our logo is in the shape of an eye, one of the first problems associated with Sjögren’s Syndrome. Dry eyes are the most common symptom. The dove signifies peace, which everyone with a chronic illness actively seeks.
The heart represents passion and love. Many of us have difficulty coping with the health problems associated with Sjögren’s Syndrome. We reach out through the association to comfort and help others. The tear drop indicates moisture needed for the dry eyes and other parts of the body.
