Helping Others in Uncertain Times
Published March 30, 2020
At this time of uncertainty amid the COVID-19 crisis, I hope you and your loved ones are doing well and are in good health. Soon, we will hear stories of good people working together to help their neighbor and overcome this new pandemic.
As we look for ways to help others, here are some guidelines to consider:
COVID-19 is a respiratory illness caused by a new virus. Health professionals are learning more with each passing day. As with any infectious disease, hygiene practices such as frequent and thorough handwashing, covering coughs, and not touching your face remain the most effective ways to stop its transmission. Social distancing is also considered essential at this time.
Burns Recovered is committed to the safety of the children, adults and families that we serve. New methods of care are being utilized, including virtual support groups. We remain hopeful that Midwest Children’s Burn Camp will occur as scheduled. With the well-being of our campers and their families as our first priority, we continue to monitor this pandemic and will adjust if needed.
Wishing you peace and all good,
