Novel Coronavirus pandemic a test for community

The COVID-19 outbreak will either bring out the very best or the very worst in us.

We have to consider every person living in Prince Edward County as our neighbours; and, as such, not do anything purposefully to cause them harm.

Either we will hoard and cause deprivation for our neighbours, or, we will calm down, take a breath, and only purchase what we absolutely need. Surely this is a time for us to share, to be kind, thoughtful, and considerate to everyone else.

This is a time to pull together as a community and not let needless fear grip us.

Let’s help one another, let’s be good to one another, and let’s get through this with our collective strength and dignity in tact.
