The ties that bind us have been severely tested by the COVID-19 pandemic. But even as this terrible virus has kept many of us apart, there are examples everywhere of how we are united in purpose and community spirit – from our heroic health care workers who continue to serve our patients in so many ways, to those who are staying home and trying their best to stay well. In this newsletter, you’ll see the story of a UVM Medical Center nurse who isolated herself from her family in order to protect them. This is another example of how sacrifice is a big part of our effort to combat COVID-19. The work we’ve done so far shows that we’re up to this task, as long as we keep working together, as a community.
