Novel Corona Virus (COVID-19)

Neighbors,

We are facing a new reality.  There is no need to panic, nor buy out the stores, but there is certainly a need to pay attention.  Many of our residents are older and may be more susceptible to the virus.  Please be friendly (!), but maintain your distance from your friends and neighbors.  Just keep a few extra feet away when chatting.  Wash your hands frequently--you touch so many things every day without even realizing it and the virus can be picked up by touch and passed to you when you touch your face.


The Rabbi from Pittsburg's Tree of Life Synagogue was on TV recently and made a truly insightful comment.  He took issue with the term "social distancing", noting that what we really mean is physical distancing because in these difficult times, where we must be physically separated, socially we need to be closer than ever to support each other.


Be well; wash your hands; stay safe!
