I just wanted to send out words of encouragement to our membership community. I hear the questions and feel the tension grow each day. Everyone wondering... How we are doing? I believe our community and northeast Florida as a whole are doing better. The hardwork of our community to "flatten the curve" is starting to show. We are headed in the right direction. Yet, there is still much work to be done, especially, in hospitals, but, if we continue to do the right thing, we will see even more signs of improvement and maybe an end to this pandemic.
I know we're all feeling uncomfortable during our self-quarantine but stay diligent in your efforts of social distancing for the sake of neighbors and loved ones.
I understand there is a lot of fear of what the future may bring. I ask us not to give into fear, but to stay in the present moment and embrace the positives as much as you can.
For most of us this can be an opportunity for peace and self reflection. Take time to be with your family and loved ones. We will see ourselves through this.
I leave you with this thought...."Wash Your Hands & Wash Your Worry Away"
Please stay positive and reach out to us if you need anything,
