During these unprecedented times we want to talk about some of the challenges facing the blindness community brought on by the Corona Virus Pandemic. We highly suggest that you keep up with the latest news and information on the Center for Disease Control web site.
Serina Gilbert, Lori Thompson, Tiffany Manosh and Jeff Thompson talk about the challenges and how they are over-coming and facing the situation of transportation, groceries, children, closures, working from home and how they are handling the stress and anxiety from our new realities.
Serina has published a web page that focuses on tips and information about the Corona Virus and with a Blindness perspective. You can find this on the web at www.BlindyBlog.com/corona and be sure to check back often as the page will be updated frequently.
We wish you all the strength and wellness to you, and your families, friends and communities and be sure to stay informed and aware of the updates and news from the CDC. Remember to help others and together we will see this through.
