AMUA ACTIVITIES AND COVID-19 – CORONA VIRUS
"... With regard to meetings, I ask you to think carefully about gathering in large groups. Ensure that you and your members follow the hygiene protocols advised by the Health Department. Use the ‘Thai bow’ to greet each other – hands in prayer position, slight bow – avoid greeting each other with hugs and kisses. This should also be applied during the ‘flu season in any year.
Isolation is necessary for those with the virus, and those who’ve been in contact with someone with the virus – this is unavoidable. But please be aware of isolation of people when meetings are cancelled. Make sure you keep in touch with each other by phone, email, notes, etc. Sometimes the MU meeting is all that people can go to, and to lose that contact can be depressing.
Please pray for the containment of this disease, for the health workers, for those infected, for those who have recovered. Also pray for the families of those who have lost their lives.
Above all, please use common sense. Panic helps no-one, but precautions can help everyone.
Love and peace,
13th March, 2020.
