Misericordia SIBS - COVID-19 Message
SIBS logoMarch 19,2020

To our Dear Misericordia Sibling Association,
 
Misericordia continues to be aware of the ongoing concern regarding COVID-19 (Coronavirus) and the risks associated with this virus. The health and safety of our residents, employees and volunteers is always our highest priority. Please know that as of this writing Misericordia DOES NOT have a case of COVID-19, nor has there been any known risk of exposure.
 
Based on the recommendations from the CDC, we are suspending all volunteer opportunities, all meetings, and all visitation to our Home until further notice. Misericordia will continue to keep you informed regarding any developments that may significantly impact your involvement. Again the safety of our residents is of paramount importance. We are so grateful to our working groups for your continuous support, however, we must take this time to act with caution for the wellbeing of everyone in the Misericordia family. 
 
Regarding fundraising endeavors, each of you have your own individual events with unique themes and timelines. I am asking you to put your events on hold until further notice. Our first big event is Misericordia Candy Days on April 24 and 25. We will be sending a message soon about how we will address that fundraiser this year.
 
In light of all our events, we need to be respectful and work together for the greater good of Misericordia. I ask that the chairs connect with me individually as we know these circumstances will affect each volunteer group differently.
 
We are beyond blessed with your patience, understanding, and continuous devotion to Misericordia especially during this time of uncertainty. We so value each of you and the members of all our groups for your continuous support to our beloved Home. 
 
I know this is a stressful time in our country and in our Home, but please God, with us all working together, I am confident that we will rise to the challenges and come out stronger as a community.
 
On behalf of Sister Rosemary and our entire Executive and Administrative teams, I sincerely thank you with a grateful heart.
