Dear Friend,

We’re living in a time of great change and crisis. I hope you and your loved ones are safe and free from the Covid-19 virus. If you or a loved one is infected, keep in mind that doctors and nurses are doing their best, and researchers around the world are racing to find a cure.

We are all in this crisis together! No one is alone.

I encourage you to follow safe social distancing. Keep at least 6 feet apart from the nearest person.
Cough into your sleeve. Or cup your hand over your mouth.
Wash your hands with soapy water or sanitizer. If you cough into your hand, follow it with a hand wash or sanitizer.
After touching an object outside of your home, don’t touch your face. I’m assuming that objects in your home are sanitized.
Go outside for fresh air. Hang out in your back yard, or take a stroll around the neighbourhood.
It’s okay for kids to play with each other as long as its not contact sport.
Check up on the elderly. Phone calls are welcome by those confined to their homes!
If someone in the neighbourhood is elderly and needs groceries, leave a bag of food outside their door. Of course, let them know its there!

Most of all, be kind! 

This pandemic will pass. How you and I act during this time of crisis is a testament to our character. Remember, social distancing flattens the curve. But that doesn’t mean you can’t stay in touch with each other via phone or video.

Stay safe!
