We are thankful that, to date, there have been no positive cases of COVID-19 at this hospital. Yet we know that this good news means that healthcare workers and at-risk communities are working that much harder to maintain this level of safety.
For that reason, staff have established outreaches at key places where many community members pass, like checkpoints along roads. Each person who passes these checkpoints is given information about COVID-19 and how to prevent its transmission. This information can then be passed on to family members.
We are committed to providing moments of hope, and it is these good news stories―where we can celebrate that COVID-19 has not yet reached a community―that inspire us each day. But we also know that we cannot stop now.
This pandemic requires us to stay committed, and continue to walk alongside the communities where we have already been working for many years.
