'If it looks like you're overreacting, you're probably doing the right thing' - National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases Director Anthony Fauci
Incredibly diligent work done this weekend by the Hutterian Safety Council. The group is tasked with coordinating the Hutterite response to the COVID-19 pandemic for all Hutterites and they represent Lehrerleut, Dariusleut, and Schmiedeleut Hutterite communities.
We thank them and are very grateful for their efforts.
The Hutterite Safety Council hopes to help:
Disseminate reliable information and practical examples of how communities can cope with the present and future challenges.
Provide encouragement and hope to all our communities in a troubled world.
How do we hope to accomplish this?
Share daily/weekly bulletins like this one. (Please share these bulletins freely and widely with family, friends and everyone in your community.)
Communicate with local and provincial/state government officials to ensure our message is accurate and consistent with their efforts.
Arrange for connections to available resources that Hutterite communities can provide to our neighbours within local communities. Examples include supporting local blood donor drives, and, if local food supply becomes a concern, food donations. As time passes, more opportunities may arise in other areas, such as making medical face masks.
