  1. Can we follow those who have contracted covid 19 to see their progress or lack of? Wouldn’t that help us to know how to help others and their families who catch the virus? Can we help them as a community by providing food, financial help or whatever they need to keep going? Perhaps start a community fund, provide addresses and phone numbers of places and organizations that are readily available to help them. Sometimes people just don’t know where to turn to receive help. Everyone doesn’t have a computer or the skill to use one.

    • What a kind response, Beverly. Those are wonderful ideas. While I’m able to report the numbers of COVID cases, I’m not able to find out names because of privacy issues. But there must be a way to make some helpful connections, and I’m going to ask some questions and see what we can figure out. If other people have ideas, I hope they will either post them as comments or email me directly: [email protected].
