Housing for the Harvest
This is a program that offers temporary hotel housing to agricultural workers who need to isolate themselves due to COVID-19. It helps positive or exposed workers protect their loved ones and coworkers by giving them space to self-isolate. Farm and food processing workers play an essential role in maintaining our food supply. But some who need to self-isolate are finding it difficult due to their housing situation.

Importance of wearing a mask and wearing it properly
Please follow the YouTube link. It will visually demonstrate how the coronavirus travels from person to person. Notice how social distance becomes important and how the risk has increased as we spend more time indoors because of the cold weather. Notice too, how the risk is reduced (not eliminated) when the face mask is used and even more so when the mask is properly fitted. On an additional note, an easy way to tell if you have a good mask is simply to try to blow out a candle. If you are able to blow it out, it has failed the test.
Let us use extra care, please.
