Crisis Updates

All indications are that COVID-19 caused by the SARS-CoV-2 virus will be with us for a long time.Read the numbers at nwob.org/cov/.

North America climbed up the chart to be the most SARS-CoV-2 infected Continent on Earth. The USA is a new epicenter. 90%+ Community spread among recent cases signals a most dangerous situation. Stay home, sleep plenty, exercise an hour daily, drink plenty of water, eat balanced meals & stay clean.

Clean all surfaces of your house. Wash with soap. Any soap that foams works fine. Wash your hands constantly, that is, before you touch anything, and after you touch anything. Do not engage with any person outside your family and isolate those of your family who are sick and under your care. Elect a person to do weekly shopping and help that person wear as much protective equipment you may have.
