DISTANCE MAKES THE HEART GROW FONDER
If we are to see this crisis through and keep providing food for vulnerable families in Blaine County, everyone needs to do their part in staying safe, healthy, and eliminating risk for our neighbors. The Hunger Coalition is committed to taking every measure possible to flatten the curve and mitigate the spread of COVID-19. We urge you to adapt your behavior in order to protect the most vulnerable members of our community. For example:
1. Don’t carpool with people you do not live with. If you have a friend who can run essential errands for you because you do not have transportation, please reach out, but do not get in their car.
2. Don’t babysit or have other children in your home. Children are rapidly contaminating people because they often do not have symptoms. Even if the child appears healthy, they can still get you sick.
3. Don’t host playdates inside or outside. We understand the children are struggling without social contact, but the sooner we get this under control, the sooner things will get back to normal.
4. Don’t have friends or family over unless you live with them. COVID-19 is spreading rapidly among family and friend circles.
5. Don’t socialize in public places such as grocery stores or the post office. You can wave and say hello, but please do not stop to chat.
6. Don’t go to Twin Falls. Stay in Blaine County. We must keep other communities safe.
